so here we are almost six years since my last journal post.

I heard dA got sold... came back wondering if anybody I knew from the early days (hi mccann ) was still around or active.

and I find myself once again sitting at my workstation in the basement, this time with kid #3 on my lap. I took a bunch of hard drives to the local recycler last week.  more iterations, but a lot of the same.

it's been so long since I've shot film, it took me over a year to realize that my local store doesn't even have a developer on-site anymore.  I have a romantic notion of shooting B&W again, developing in my basement, and scanning the negatives, but it's not going to happen unless one of the kids shows an interest.  The patience required for the delay between image capture and view is not something I am expecting them to have.  They do like polaroids, but there are only a finite number of packfilm shots left.

the guy who did the bulk of my C-41 developing noted that he liked running my photos since "most people take photos of their kids or pets."  and now I am one of those people.  :)

What a hectic time since my last post.

* my brother got married
* my wife and I found out we were expecting a child
* I got a new job (as a contractor)
* our son, Desmond, was born
* our second cat (Felix) passed away
* I got hired as a full-time employee

Desmond is asleep now, and my wife and a friend are watching Glee from the never-ending netflix / roku font. I'm guessing I have another hour or so until Desmond wakes up and I'm summoned to head to bed.

I'm in my basement going through old hard drives, identifying the dead ones for recycling, reformatting, doing some limited benchmarking, doing some updates, and generally trying to figure out how to move my basement datacentre forward from its current static and dusty state. I realize how much I miss the sounds some of these make, and am setting them aside to make some recordings before they are passed on.

I figured I had to start somewhere.  knock the dust off and clear the kipple.
