JTK asked for it, so here it is! My very exciting desktop.

web discuss 2.0

February 14th, 2006

As webdiscuss enters it’s 7th year online, it’s interesting to take a look back at some of our past discussions.

This post isn’t about emerging new technology, web2.0, ajax, or any of the other buzz-words-du-jour; it’s just a notice of another reincarnation of a site and newsgroup that I hold dear.

Even though the discussions have slowed, we’re still here. We’ll still be here. Why not spark the discussion.

happy birthday to me

March 1st, 2005

After all my indecision between buying an HP 7960 or an Epson 2200 photo printer, I ended up buying an HP Photosmart 8450.

I must have been stuck in the dark ages when it comes to photo printers. I seriously thought I would see fine lines or dot pixels when I printed out a photo from my Canon EOS 10D. The prints from this printer are professional lab quality. I held the print side-by-side from a print I got from ofoto, and I couldn’t tell the difference.

My birthday is coming up this week, and although I’ve already received a free ipod, a free ipod shuffle and a free flatscreen from GratisNetwork, I’m still hoping they’ll come through for me and deliver a free 60 GB photo ipod to my door this month. I only need a few more people to signup through my link :)

It’s good to see all the old “regulars” checking into the WebDiscuss newsgroup. Maybe soon we can start putting the “Discuss” back in WebDiscuss. I miss those days…

HP 7960 vs epson 2200

January 21st, 2004

After reading a few review sites, I’m thinking about getting the HP PhotoSmart Printer 7960.

I’ve also read rave reviews about the Epson 2200 photo printer, and now I’m at a dilemma about which one to purchase for my digital prints.

This will be strictly a photo printer (I have another printer for text stuff).

Any thoughts on which one to choose?

dude, I’m getting a Mirra
