Co-loc got their act together (turns out there was a routing problem that was masked by the IP problem) and the errata was pushed and announced. Now we just wait for the mailing lists to churn through.
Did a few updates to the current development version of the kernel package.
I'm investigating digital photo printing services such as ofoto, shutterfly, and photoaccess. A bunch of these services try to convince you to install their proprietary software to upload your pictures; one of them wants to replace your camera communications software with their proprietary package which "with one click" uploads your picture to them to print. They also post-process your image based on the camera you have in order to get better color, but they make no mention of white balance settings; my camera (at least) has several different white balance settings, including the default automatic correction. I wonder how this service tries to compensate for automatic white balance? I could send them one of my pictures that looks really washed out and which I can't seem to correct in the gimp, and see what they make of it... But in general, I'm rather leary of "don't worry, we magically correct everything for you" services.
