We took a week off work to visit my sister in Edinburgh. Friends and family will be able to see the photos at my Multiply site. The geek aspect to this visit was that I was able to meet up with some people for a keysigning. This was facilitated via Biglumber. This is a site for those interesting in keysigning to advertise the fact, along with their location. I signed keys for four people and am gradually getting their signatures on mine. Managed to have a brief chat with them before dashing off for a great veggie meal at David Bann.
I had my first bit of guestbook spam this week. It's deleted now to deny them any benefit. Spam seems to be generally getting worse. Some is being filtered by the mail server, but Thunderbird picks up most of the rest.
After my earlier deliberations I bought a new digital camera. It's a Canon Powershot A400. It's near the bottom of the Canon range, but I was going for economy. It offers 3.2 megapixels, a 2x zoom and lots of features like movies, sound, panoramic shots and much more. It will do for our family snaps. I'm trying out KimDaBa as a simple photo management tool. It lets me classify pictures according to location and subjects. The Gimp is handling the image manipulation nicely.
