I'm getting lazy in my old age. I still plan on putting the pictures from Closing Weekend of MDRF on my website but creating all the thumbnails and coding the html takes time. And I know how you people are with photos. So I created a Flickr account (I'll give you three guesses as to what the name is) so that I could share the photos sooner.

im in ur Fairez, takin ur peekchur

I deleted over half of all the pictures I took because I am my own worst critic. A lot of these aren't as sharply focused or cropped as much as I would have liked but they were the only shot I could get at the time. They're also shrunk down from the original size because I didn't think to change the default picture size (large) before I started shooting. It's going to take me a little while to get used to focusing again. I'm used to the crosshair focus (little circle with crosshairs) but this camera doesn't have that.

Anyway I'll probably start using Flickr to upload most of my photos now because it's so easy and because I'm running out of space on my website.

My previews. Let me show you them. )

I have no idea how long it's been since I posted anything of substance. I'm not even sure what day it is.

We're smack-dab in the middle of upgrading all our mail servers to Lotus Domino 7 and then next week or the week after we'll be upgrading all the email clients to Lotus Notes 7. All 6000 of them.

Needless to say, I've been working a lot. 11 hour days, working all weekend... you get the idea. So I've finally decided that I'm just not going to even try to make it opening day of MDRF.

I'll pause now while all the females sob onto their keyboards.

I might make it Sunday but I really need to get some rest.

On the advice of my Travel Manager, Uncle Val, I pre-paid for a room at the Homewood Suites in Mahwah, NJ. It's non-refundable but we saved $60. That 15% hotel tax in NJ still kills me though.

Then I used [ profile] fairefifi's advice and purchased faire ticket online for an additional savings of $23. Score!

So basically we're all set to head up to The Land of No Left Turns on Friday, August 3rd. I've also taken off that day so we won't be arriving late at night.

It's been 3 years since we've been to Tux (very few pics from 2004). I'm really looking forward to seeing the changes and some of the people I've been missing.

And now is the time on Sprockets when we Do A Poll!
