  • Bad things come in threes

    Posted on September 28th, 2006 Jeff Keller No comments

    Tonight was full of bad luck…
    1) Spilled a bunch of paint on my carpet. Hopefully my carpet vacuum got that off, we’ll see in the morning.
    2) While taking a mini pizza out of the oven I dropped it onto the oven door.
    3) Came home and the kitchen door hadn’t latched shut… and the wind blew it open… and Zoe had wandered outside. Thank God I found here right outside, on top of the front gate. She got a hug and a special treat for not running off or getting into a fight with the neighborhood cats.
    This weekend’s mini-vacation is just what I need right now.

  • Cool pic of the week: ghost ship

    I spotted the Infinity peeking through the fog last Sunday from the north vista point of the Golden Gate Bridge. Eventually it made its way out the Gate and onto somewhere hopefully warmer than here. Wish I was onboard!

  • The kitty tent

    I saw this at IKEA today and couldn’t resist. And it was only like six bucks, too!

  • Zoe nightmare comes true

    Posted on September 21st, 2006 Jeff Keller 1 comment

    Zoe was in the backyard this afternoon while I was staining one of my decks. When I was done I went looking for her, but couldn’t find her. Then I thought “oh no” and went into the front yard. At first I didn’t see here, but I soon found her cowering in the corner of the front “patio”. She was obviously frightened by the cars and trucks that had gone by. I brought her inside without resistence.
    It looks like I’m going to have to find a way to keep her in the backyard to prevent this from happening agian. I don’t want her just wandering off, or worse.

  • Now I’ve seen everything

    The new Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX2 has an “aerial photo mode”, made for taking pictures through airplane windows. In the manual they even have these notes below the description of the feature: 1) Turn the camera off when taking off or landing and 2) When using the camera, follow all instructions from cabin crew.
    What’s next?!

  • This buck’s for you

    This guy spent a few hours outside my house today. This is the first buck I’ve seen this close. He wasn’t afraid at all — usually they run away.
    PS — sorry for the bad pun in the title.

  • Another cat picture I can’t use

    Once again I took a picture of Zoe that I intended to use in a review, but couldn’t because you can read my phone number on her ID tag. I need to get her a special tag for photo shoots or something.

  • How’s this for a video card?

    Posted on September 17th, 2006 Jeff Keller No comments


    On the top is the video card that came with my Mac Pro (a GeForce 7300GT). On the bottom is the ATI 1900XT, which I had originally wanted built into the computer. Since that would’ve delayed things by over a month, I just ordered the computer without it, and bought the video card separately. The X1900 is by far the biggest video card I’ve ever seen… it’s insane! I’m looking forward to some fast scrolling in Photoshop now!
