Happy New Year.

January 6, 2007

It’s been awhile. I’ve been so busy with the GlassyEyes site, that things here have quieted down a bit too much.

I got a new lens for the camera. I used my “bonus” from work to get me most of the way towards the gorgeous and VERY flexible, Zuiko Digital 14-54mm f/2.8-3.5 zoom for the Olympus “Four Thirds” system. I’m very impressed, but have had little time to actually use it. I need a trip somewhere to put it through its paces — and to regain some perspective before things get crazy around here again. I plan a detailed review of the differences between it and the 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6 in the coming weeks.

I bought a Nintendo DS Lite for my birthday and have been “gaming” with the guys at work and the kids at home (but only on weekends!). Great little piece of hardware. I remember thinking, “what a contrived system that is,” when they announced it, but I was completely wrong. Some of the best user interfaces, and control schemes I’ve ever seen.

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.
