Pirates, Ninjas, Midgets, Zombies or Big Tits

That's my roommate there in the thumbnail picture. Watching fake explosions on "The History Channel". I was experimenting with a digital camera my daughter gave me. A nice one though I still need practice taking candid shots. Tough to focus in low light conditions. And well... that's just what you get sometimes when you're taking a candid shot. What good is it if everybody knows you're shooting the picture? I need to read the manual.

Looking at Blosxom and Pyblosxom sites a while back (for inspiration) I came across Thumbscrew. A tool for creating polaroid like thumbnail images. Well! I just had to have them there thumbnails on my site. Problem was it only runs on Mac OS X.

So I went through a phase of experimenting with Mac OS X. Installing it and running it natively on my Intel box, and running it in a virtual machine with Vmware. Neither experience being very satisfying. Educational maybe. It worked well enough that I was able to re/create/modify the bulk of the thumbnails now used on the site. Not very satisfying though... having to fire up OS X in order to create some thumbnails. I figured I could do as well with a script maybe fashioned around Imagemagick's ability to create thumbnails. But then bam! there it was --Polaroid like thumbnails created with Imagemagick.

So yeah. Now I can make my own Polaroid like thumbnails without resorting to the use of OS X. Ah well, it's fun to experiment . Oh yeah, click on my roommate to get a bigger out of focus view of the picture. That's iBox that's popping up that larger picture. Nice. So many litebox clones to choose from now and everybody seems to be using one too. Jeepers, I still have code for the original in my css.

And oh yeah --why my roommate bother's with that trash is beyond me. If there are no Pirates, Ninjas, Midgets, Zombies or Big Tits then what good is it?
