I had a major case of shaky handitis when drawing this one. I blame the humidity.
So it turns out that internet hasn't really been used much in this building before we moved in. Without prior demand, both Bell and Rogers have been fumbling around trying to explain either how they're trying to fix the crappy service we're getting, or why they can't yet provide service at all.
Things changed yesterday however, as Rogers announced they will add a new "node" or whatever, given that there now seems to be enough interest in decent internet service here.
Meanwhile, Bell flipped some switches and twisted some knobs, and our current connection went from bad to worse. Luckily I had all I needed to work offline for most of the day.
I tried out this glx/compiz 3d-accelerated desktop for linux recently. Pretty slick stuff, if a little glitchy. The wobbly windows and bouncy menu effects are kinda cool, as is the rotating cube workspace switcher and the task switcher. Pretty impressively fast for an old PC.
I almost never take photos that seem like "finished" pieces, but this morning shot of the outside of our building turned out not too badly. Contrast and saturation exaggerated because I liked the ancient photo look.
I love my Elph. Just the other day I discovered that when you're viewing photos, the camera will sense if you rotate the camera and will flip the image to keep it upright. It's like I'm living in the future.
