Moving Day

Well it's the shortest day of the year (at least down under it is) and I'm moving my blog to it's new home at http://yankinoz.robnamy.net - come on over and have a look around. It's a Movable Type blog - so I'll have a bit more control than I could get here. Update your links and bookmarks!

Distractions, yes there have been a few things keeping me from shooting and/or posting in the past few weeks. These distractions include the above rock climbing shoes. Some regual sessions at the local climing gym to get back in shape. My mind remembers how to do things, it's just not as easy to get my body to do it any more...

Then there is the Media Portal PC (our version of 'TiFaux' as Kris calls it) that's been occupying most of my free time over the past two weeks. It's up and running, and is mostly stable. Pausing live TV is fun. Even better is watching what you want to watch, when you want to watch it. But it hasn't been easy, this technology is not a plug and play solution just yet - but I highly recommend this for anyone who doesn't mind messing around a bit with a PC.

The other computer project has to do with moving myself off of Blogger and getting Amy's Blog off of Live Journal and hosting both off an old PC from home. I've got Movable Type working and a beta blog is up. Both of us have idea of where we want to take our blogs and either Blogger nor Live Journal are full featured (at least not the free versions) enough. Right now I'm trying to make sure the whole thing is relatively secure before we go live with it.

Anyway, that some of the stuff I've been up to.

Found this at the gun shop in Gosford. Long story as to exactly what I was doing in the gun shop in Gosford... but it was the most American place I've visited in Australia. Well, other than Chili's anyway.

There's a new group of Turkish Cat photos. Mostly looks like pictures of Sparky (from Amy and me) but we aren't alone in our love of the Turkish Van.

a day in the life of...

Flickr does a day in the life of shoot every once in a while. Today was the first one since I found Flickr so I toated my camera around with me. Since the bulk of my day was spent at work, there isn't really too much to see... Monday is usually just me being at work. dilomar05_0005 Originally uploaded by yankinoz.

So I didn't expect much, but there are some intersting things that happen as the day goes by. I ended up taking over 150 photos (mostly crap really) but right now there are about a dozen on flickr. I'm likely to add more. See the whole set.

Whitewater Rafting

We had a corporate outing yesterday to the Penrith Whitewater Stadium (built for the 2000 Sydney Olympics.) I don't have an underwater housing, so I left the camera at home - there were a handful of cameras there and one of my colleagues grabbed this photo of me NOT white water rafting. See the raft to the left; the one that's upside down? That would be ours. See the guy in the water; getting pulled to shore with a rope? That would be me. And I had an absolute blast!
