kay, I went and got some lunch (Jimmy John's and a Mocha Latte/No whip cream), and I bought some soap and milk. Not surprisingly, I was out of both.
I used shampoo for soap this morning, which proved to be an odd experience. I must say though, there are benefits; When you drop the shampoo, it doesn't get covered in hairs (straight or otherwise) skulking around the bottom of the shower. Plus, your whole body smells fruity fresh, and not just your hair. I can't sniff my own hair anyway, so how do I
ever benefit from the fruit-tastic
not yet available
nature? I don't. But when my arm smells berry-rific, I can just sniff to my heart's content.
I spent some time in the last few days learning how to control Photoshop via external scripting. I'd been meaning to write a method of automating a lot of my digital photograph workflow -- contrast/brightness, unsharp mask, resizing, etc. and thought about using The GIMP
and it's built-in Script-Fu
capabilities; which maybe I'll do at some point. But I'd have to spend a lot of time learning a new langauge and environment. I wanted to use some pre-existing skills. So I downloaded Adobe's Scripting plugin (Win
) for Photoshop 7. Yes, I'm including the Mac link for you, Shep. So I used VBscript to control photoshop over a folder full of images. Pretty handy.
Other news... I think I want to move to New Zealand and partake in their racing season. If only I could find an airline that would let me take Eddie and treat him the way he deserves...
Just a tiny update, that picture is of one of the gnats that show up on occasion in our office. If anyone knows this gnat or from whence he spawns, please let me know, as they are pretty annoying.
