Apologies for the grainy image, it was taken on my cameraphone in a washroom at the “snowy owl” sled dogs store in Canmore. Funny eh?
Well, it tickles me 🙂
Really bad for me but what the heck. One of the foods I will miss when we move to Canada.
Please tell me someone that they do fish and chips in Calgary?
(Proper fish and chips, not the stuff you get in restaurants with the bones and skin still on)
Oh I got to find out how to do this! This guy has MAME running on his old digital camera, move over PSP my old Kodak running Doom will kick your ass!
Image quality is much better in real life but taking pictures of LCD screens is difficult. I guess I now know why they always fake these in advertisements. Here are four high-res images for you to examine if you are still a non-believer. You can also use these for publication if you want.
Update: Oh man, what luck, my old camera is a DC210, the lowest model it works with is 220 :O(
Every year we watch the film Groundhog Day on or around the day. It’s a silly ritual but we like it. We must have seen that film now more than any other, although the star wars and back to the future trilogies must come close or slightly edge it, not sure.
Last night we watched it again with our friend Damian. Even though we know most of the lines we still enjoy it. The music still irritates and I still feel good when it all comes together at the end.
According to IMDB the film was originally going to be quite different. The phenomenon was going to have an explanation (a lame one) and it was going to begin with the time loop already in progress. Worst of all … it was going to be Tom Hanks in the lead.
If any one of those things had gotten into the film I don’t think we would be having this “conversation”.
It seems through only the power of *wishing really hard* my kit lense is now fixed – hurrah!
I imagine it is still damaged, I mean it can’t have stopped working and started working without some wear and tear, right?
So do I send it for mendin’ or do I live with it as it is. Doesn’t look like my new lense is going to arrive any time soon. I have been promised it would arrive today or any day now for like a month. Actually approaching two pretty much.
What to do …
I am afraid associating with SEOs and affiliate marketers has made me cynical. I see ulterior motives in everything I see. Give you an example, DaveN has launched a blog about Paul McKenna and his diet-without-dieting approach called Diet Trials. Having been interested in NLP for about 15 years I have always been a fan of Paul McKenna, particularly when he teamed up with NLP uber-guru Dr. Richard Bandler himself.
DaveN writes apparently sincerely, which is good. Treats the subject matter seriously, no taking the piss, which is nice. But at the bottom are the telltale links that make me think this is linkbait. Which is it? Spam or truth? Bit of both? 🙂
Roughly translated into English
See all, hear all say nothing,
Eat all, drink all, pay nothing,
And if you do anything for nothing,
Do it for yourself.
I am going to keep any more commentary on this subject to myself until I have emigrated out of Yorkshire! (Following rule number 1 I guess, heh)
Oh retro joy! These really take me back!
We didn’t have a C64, we had the humble Vic20, but my cousin had the C64. I remember it fondly as a great machine, the games kicked bottom but I mainly remember if for the music.
