Do you smell smoke?
Wednesday, March 12th, 2003

There’s a fire (apparently a big one) just down the street from here, at 426 S Massachusetts Street. For a while, one of the DOT cameras was offering a pretty good view. We can’t actually see the fire from our floor, but the smoke is sure creating a thick haze and a strong smell. At first I thought something in the building must be burning, but it was just that the air conditioning system was sucking the smoke into the building and pumping it right into my closed office. Nice.

New camera
Sunday, March 9th, 2003

I got a new digital camera to replace my trusty but broken Nikon Coolpix 950. The Coolpix served me well, but the battery door broke (an all too common problem on that model) and I was sick of taping it shut every time I needed to change batteries. I briefly considered trying to fix it; other CP 950 owners have done so successfully. But I decided that this was probably a decent time to upgrade anyway.

I started out with the intention of getting another Nikon. I’ve used Nikon gear for years and I still really like it. However, after looking at all the options, I ended up getting a Canon PowerShot G3. So far I love it. There are reviews of the G3 all over the web, so I won’t write another one. I’ll just say that I am very happy with this camera and leave it at that.

Thanks a lot, Yoplait

I was just sitting there on the couch trying to wake up. Preparing for a day at work (a Friday, at least). Starting to eat some breakfast. And then it happened. The bottom fell out of my cup of Yoplait yogurt. Right into my lap, of course. Thanks, guys.

I think I’ll have some toast for breakfast.
