When Lisa and I headed over to Hawaii for her 40th Birthday, we returned to find this balloon.

It stayed floating at full height until the 8th of February...

from somewhere around the 28th of November, until the 21st of February - That's one determined balloon

 I'm definitely liking the camera app 'Halide' for it's manual controls and RAW capture... it really does turn the phone into a very capable pocket cam, wish I downloaded it sooner.

positivity #44

After 8 and a half years, I've upgraded from my bottom of the barrel mac mini... a middle of the road (new) mac mini.

It's already noticeably faster when editing images, and (once I get the cable issues sorted) will allow me to see in crystal clear resolutions completely unheard of in a crappy micro PC from 2010.

Turns out that the cable I'd purchased off amazon several weeks ago in anticipation of upgrading was incorrectly labelled. I didn't actually open the packet, and have now missed the deadline to lodge a return... so another one has been ordered, hopefully it's not a repeat of the same.

curse-you incorrect sticker-label!

Until things have settled down, I have both the old and the new computers, hooked up to the dual monitors - so there are two keyboards, and two mice/trackpads, letting me control two separate systems...

potential productivity overload!  Just need something to be productive about.
