I did take pictures, but I left the little cable to transfer them from my camera to the computer at home (as opposed to at college, which is where I am). But I don't have classes on Fridays, so I can have the pictures up by tomorrow, I promise.

I hate cables. I'm always losing the one I need for the particular device I need it for and they aren't interchangeable. Reminds of of what Douglas Adams wrote about "dongly things" except I think he was talking about the plugs you need for things if you travel to different countries. But never mind, it's the same problem, isn't it?

That's why, with video games, they've moved to a lot of wireless stuff. But I guess the problem is that, in order for a camera to wirelessly connect to a computer, every kind of computer would have to be able to recognize every kind of camera. I think that must be why they still need a cable. Then again, I think at has to do with "drivers"... I don't know. But I'll have pictures tomorrow.

Today I was walking around with my sister (we got so board we had a towel fight every few minutes).  As we walked I saw a woman and I thought of last year’s stranger with towel, so I went up to her, asked her if she could hold my towel while I take a picture, she took it, I took a picture of her and afterwards me and my sister explained what stranger with towel is and Towel Day.

... However, towels make good dust cloths.

I see you noticed that I also use dust in my interior decorating.  Fortunately my library is my library and neither wife nor kids are permitted to clean it.

Here is some towelgami that my sister and I did.  All the pink/tan ones are mine and all the rainbow/green ones are hers.

Here are some snails.


Here are some swans.


Here are some ducks.


Here are some baby birds in a nest.


And finally, here are some worms on rocks.


For the swan and the snail we followed some directions but the rest we made by ourselves.

Alright, I've got mine uploaded. Let's see...

Me in front of my starship:


Me in a Happy Vertical People Transporter:


Me in my ship's cabin:


I had a couple more, but apparently they're too big to upload.

Glad you could get your pictures up.  I shrink mine with Gimp before uploading them.

I've used Photobucket before, but I always forget my password. I could use a program to shrink them, but there's really only one more that's good. It was a fun Towel Day, though.

I've used Photobucket before, but I always forget my password.

I hate passwords. I want a chip in my wrist so I can just scan my arm on the computer, the ATM machine, whatever- so I don't have to remember passwords, SS#, or any other numbers or passwords ever again. We chipped the cat. Why can't we chip me?  ::)

Kind of like Random's wrist thing, huh? It's interesting how things that sound like such good ideas tend to have unforeseen implications. My dad was saying something one time about the idea of putting chips in grocery items (I guess it had some advantage over barcodes that I can't remember), and how it could go bad, for example, someone could buy the scanning device, and they would be able to drive by your house and find out all of the items you had in your fridge. If this were applied to things other than food, it would give them a good idea of which house to rob.

I guess maybe the disadvantage of having a chip in yourself might be people being able to track you down? As opposed to stealing it, which would be kinda difficult, especially if you don't want to be noticed.

Guess I went on a bit of a tangent there :P
