dude, I got a dell
My trusty old Mac Pro finally gave up the ghost, and IT replaced it with a Dell Latitude e6410 laptop.
I’m going to be spending some time getting familiar with Windows 7. The thing came with a 24″ LCD, and a docking station that had two DVI ports, so I slapped in a 20″ Cinema Display as well. Not sure how well a laptop will be able to drive 44″ of display, but I’ll find out soon…
I dropped Safari and iTunes onto it quickly, and set it up to sync with MobileMe, iDisk, DropBox, Evernote, etc… so my stuff was there pretty quickly.

I spent the day staring at the screen, pruning stuff out of my research proposal and polishing it off. I wound up dropping a bunch of planned data collection. It’s going to be much more manageable now. It’s not quite done, but definitely closer.
I’m working on a paper for an edtech course – drafts and ideas in my moleskine notebook, with text flowing together in OmmWriter.
I set a timer for random(300) minutes. It picked 43, so the @dailyshoot randometime project photo wound up during my paper-writing window this morning. Exciting stuff.
Set an alarm for a random time today. Any time. When it goes off, pick up your camera and find a photo near where you are.
Get out there, take a photograph, upload it, and tweet a link to @dailyshoot with the hashtag: #ds127

I started processing the video submissions for the Connect project. Some amazing stuff to work with!
The office is pretty empty today, with the rest of my team away in Vancouver for FOBL. It’s also unseasonably dark, so I’m hibernating in my office hacking away on UCalgaryBlogs.ca

my old Six-20 Brownie. I was messing around with lighting and taking close-up photos with my iPhone. Not great.
