Can't sleep. Printing new calling cards.

Lots going on in my head, many transitions in the next few days and weeks. Pumpkin and Domino are oblivious - Dom is curled up on the bedroom floor half across the base of a scratching post and Big Orange Furball deserted me entirely until about 2 am, when he curled up next to me with his tail flicking against my face.

Nikon has announced a new improved digital SLR the D-200, 10 MP 5 frames per second. Only $1700 list, for just the body. They also have a lovely 18-200mm DX lens, which is a reasonable $750, but nobody seems to have it in stock. Would have liked that for England, but probably won't be available in time.

Went to a Podcasters' Meetup at Mission College Yahoo, they had a good crowd, lots of interesting conversations but no presentation to focus on. Two sites which you might find amusing:

JJ Webb's Cafe Blue

This will probably be my last time going - these folks are trying to make a living from podcasting (producing audio and video feeds for the iPod and home computers). They are mostly amateurs at audio/video production, and see a market rather than know what they are doing. I am just doing it for fun, and havenb't put any serious time into my feeds. And may never.

Printing's done. Just applied the acrylic spray. Time to try sleeping.
