Road Trip!

I’ve finally been convinced to leave town! This coming week we’re going on a 7day road trip to Edmonton and back, via Valemount and Calgary. I will be posting a select few photos on my Flickr page and blogging about them here, provided I have the energy to do so. Wish us luck!

My first Hackintosh

I recently purchased a Dell Mini 10v with the intent of installing OS X on it and turning it into a “hackintosh”, or, as I like to call it, the poor man’s Macintosh. It’s not the speediest thing on the planet but it runs OS X, has no major problems, is small and portable, and […]

Ten playing with Lens Cap

I originally brought the camera over to film Ten play with her box of toys. It didn’t take long for her to become fascinated with the lens cap and also managed to scare the crap out of herself while jumping into the box of toys. Too funny!
