Guess and Check


ThinkGeek shirt

I got an email this morning from ThinkGeek informing me that a t-shirt exactly like the one that I own has been in space.

It appears that NASA Astronaut Stephen Robinson owns the same shirt that I do and was photographed wearing it on the latest Discovery mission.

See the photo for proof. Very cool.


W3C Validator’s new look

The W3C Markup Validation Service has a new look.

And apparently, it’s not just a new look:

2005-08-08 — 0.7.0 Release:
Stable release including all the fixes and improvements made in consecutive beta versions 0.7.0 Beta #2 and 0.7.0 Beta #1.

It was a little disconcerting to get a green bar when I was so used to the old familiar blue bar. But hey, it looks great.

I’m going to be taking Introduction to Creative Photography this fall. I had been looking for the required “35mm camera capable of manual control of F/stop and shutter speed” for a while, and I bought one on eBay last week. It’s a RICOH XR-10 and it came fully loaded.

It just arrived today and it is in amazing condition. I can hardly tell it’s been used, which is particularly spectacular considering it was originally purchased on December 30, 1989. I should be having some photography related fun in the coming weeks.
