Been busy working on words and pictures from old books - it's mostly pictures right now, partly because I haven't decided exactly how it should work. I need to experiment. Up to almost 700 pictures though, all with at least a little metadata.
Also started an XML Blog as an experiment. I don't think what is there now is very controversial, but I don't promise it will stay that way.
Today Clyde and I went to a Pow-wow near Napanee, ON, which was a lot of fun despite the gently drizzling rain, and then afterwards ate at a new and not altogether inexpensive restaurant in Bloomfield, where the food was very good.
There are more restaurants in the expensive range (say, Cad$40/head and up without wine) than I'd expect in this rural community. I think it's because we're within weekend range of Toronto, as evidenced also by the number of bed and breakfast places.
We're still moving in to the new house. Next is to get permits to do some floor and window work. I was slightly worried that our new scanner wouldn't survive the trip: it's an Epson E10000, which does 3,200dpi at A3+ (12x18" roughly), although if you try that you get awfully large files. The scanner is working fine and I've added several new images to the fromoldbooks site.
Next big purchases will be a new computer for me, a paper-making machine for Clyde, and a giclee printer for us to share. Probably an Epson stylus pro printer with third-party inks, but I don't know for sure.
Now, back to Skobo Deluxe Level 50!
