I mentioned in yesterday’s entry that we had a challenging time trying to get the camera’s timer to work (We eventually suffered the humiliation of having to dig out the manual). Today’s pic (Click for the full-size version) is a compilation of some of my attempts to get the thing to work… and this is with the various shots of my feet or the ceiling edited out.
In other news, there are some new pipes on the site for the first time in quite a while. This will probably be the last catalog update until late december or, more likely, early January, because we plan to take off a week for vacation while my parents are here. For those who are interested in such stuff, the new Talbert Briar (the Seahorse, seen in the “Making of” video) can be seen here, and there is also a new morta and a very nice new Ligne Bretagne.
I am closing down the little poll I have been running for the past week. It has been useful and educational – thanks to everyone who voted! With 51% of the vote, the biggest request was for more videos, and I hope to have a lot more fun stuff coming in the future. The next biggest vote, at 27%, was for no changes at all… surely a good sign! The distant third and fourth requests, tied at 7% each, were for more older archive photos (No problem!) and for more interactivity, such as a discussion forum. I’ve voiced my doubts about the viability and usefulness of a forum before, but I am not ruling it out. While David Field was here, we discussed a project that would virtually demand a dedicated forum, so I expect something to come crawling out of the woodwork sometime in the coming year.
