Lunar Eclipse Photos (28 Oct 2004 at 00:16)
Lunar Eclipse Photos
1160×400 version
Tonight there was a total lunar eclipse (when the earth's shadow completely covers the moon), visible in most of North America. Actually, the eclipse is still going on now, although I am unable to conveniently capture it from my window any more. Here is a nice montage of photographs I took from 22:18 to 23:45 EST. The ghostly image in the first photo is actually lens flare, but it is too dramatic for me to leave it out. ;)

Lawn Sky (22 Oct 2004 at 23:40)
On my last album-a-day one of my favorite tunes was about a world in which the sky is filled with flying lawnmowers. Well, this dream has finally come true!

New Toy: Sony Vaio TR3AP (20 Oct 2004 at 00:36)
New Toy: Sony Vaio TR3AP
666×476 version
Here's another new toy. I got this laptop for nanowrimo next month and for use as a GPS on road trips (very handy!!). The TR3AP is one of Sony's smallest laptops, pictured here next to a 1 Yuan note for scale. I love this little sucker a lot so far.

Oddly, it is a bit thicker and heavier than my last Vaio (N505VE), which I got about 5 years ago. Aren't computers supposed to get smaller? On the other hand, it sports onboard wireless and DVD/CDR, which were sorely missing from the old guy. The case is also plastic, which isn't as cool as the magnesium on the N505VE, especially since this one cost $500 more. But it's still very small, snappy, gets great battery life, and all the good things a laptop is supposed to be.

(PS. We saw Mirah and friends tonight courtesy of WPTS. Two concerts in the same week is starting to make me feel like college again!)

New Toy: Martin DX1 (19 Oct 2004 at 11:13)
New Toy: Martin DX1
512×768 version
I got a new toy last month, the Martin DX1. I like it a lot with two caveats: first, it is harder to fit my partial capo onto it because there is less space on the neck outside the strings (compared to my SG or old Fender mini-acoustic), and second I am constantly worried about breaking it! The sound and feel are worlds better than the old one, though. I'd promise an AAD soon, but with Nanowrimo coming up, I don't think I'll have time until December.
