Cowards die many times before their deaths

Aspect-oriented SharePoint

Had a discussion today about whether aspect-oriented programming is supported in SharePoint. Kevin Hoffman has an interesting take on this topic: "Windows SharePoint Services v3's Features - Aspect-Oriented Administration?"

The Mighty Monarch vs Powergirl

I am blessed with not one, but two mods of that picture of Woozy Winks, Plastic Man and Powergirl from the Wizard World convention.

This mod is from The Mighty Monarch, whose blog is featured in my blog buddies list.

I especially love the way Plas' arm is crumpling Powergirl's cape!

Scanning Grandma's photos

During the London Blitz, Grandma was a motorcycle courier working for the Ministry of InformationI spent a chunk of Labor Day weekend at Grandma's, scanning some great old photos. Here's a quick, techie outline of my approach. Comments are invited.
  • I scanned to loss-less TIF for quality.
  • I scanned at 600 dpi for most photos, 1200 dpi for the most important photos.
  • I want to upload the files to a private area on Flickr so that family and friends can create their own prints.
  • I plan to create a build script that will accept one XML file per photo (containing caption and such information) and will use...
    • IrfanView to convert the TIF to a JPG,
    • EXIFutils to add EXIF information like caption and tags, and
    • PowerShell to hook the whole thing together.
