This week Samantha and I welcomed a beautiful baby girl into this world. She’s the most precious and adorable thing I’ve ever seen. You always hear “nothing can prepare you for having a baby”. I have to agree, because I’ve hardly ever had as exciting of a week as this week. Nothing could have prepared me for all the joy, concern and love that was involved with having a baby. This was just the first week, I can’t imagine all

It’s been a nice summer so far :-). Lot’s of good stuff going on with friends and family. I launched my first iPhone app: Camera Kompare. So far it’s doing really well and I’ve gotten some good feedback from users. I’m excited about the new versions coming out (with new cameras and features, plus a separate iPad version). Samantha has been doing great and having perfect checkups. I can’t believe the baby should be here in less than two months!
Alternative title: What to do if your Kindle breaks after warranty coverage has expired. What happened: last night we found out our Amazon Kindle was dead. It had been killed by American Airlines. What we’re doing: We are getting a replacement Kindle from Amazon (see below). What we will do differently: We will be even more careful with carry-on items that may get “valet checked” when we’re boarding the plane. We will try to check all of our valuables before leaving
This morning I received an email from my alma mater, Drury University. Leave it to them to try to sell you a brick (from a demolished building) for $20. Note, you will need to go pick up the brick and pay $20, it is not shipped to you :-). While I have fond memories of my classmates at Drury as well as the majority of the faculty, I was never a fan of Drury’s financial policies nor their “security” policies.
P90X Question by D.D. Well, I decided that I’ve sat on my butt too long and need to get healthier. I think it’s that I’m turning 30 in a couple of weeks 😛 Anyways, I ordered P90X from beachbody.com yesterday. A friend is wanting someone to do it with him – I don’t think he finished the first week by himself. I know you’ve mentioned it a couple of times on here and was wondering what you thought of the
Two links to Ken Rockwell’s site, both of these articles resonant with me. Regarding the first article, as a somewhat gadget obsessed dude that also like photography I can empathize. I know that some of my best photographs were with relatively ancient cameras; and some of my worst photos have been with the “latest and greatest”. The second article is similar to the first one, except going into a bit more of what really makes for good photography. Article #1
I’ve always had a soft spot for Popular Mechanics, they are usually a good choice to read at the doctor’s office or at a newstand. They almost always have something interesting in each issue. Recently, Popular Mechanics did a really cool makeover of a 2009 Dodge Challenger. They took the Challenger, which is a modern V8 “muscle car” and added an electric drive system. The article starts here. The electric additions start on page 5. My house uses solar energy,
We’re in the Spfd airport, warm and out of the snow. Our flight is now scheduled for 8AM (instead of 7:40AM). Apparently the crew was delayed getting in the night before. They are required to get a minimum amount of rest, so our flight is slightly delayed. We’re all for the crew having plenty of rest, so no biggie :-). The new Springfield terminal is pretty nice, power (AC and USB) outlets under a number of seats and the wifi
