2003 is well on its way. Christmas was celebrated quietly with family and close friends.
New Years even quieter at home after seeing 'The Gangs of New York' earlier in the day.
New York City is having a real winter. The high is only 18 today.
We've had multiple snow storms. The current weather makes me remember 'cold'
Texas winters with lows in the 40s. But nostalgia for warm winters only goes so far.
I'd much rather be in New York then Austin, cold weather and all.
The next few months look to be very hectic at work. We are in the final stretch
of setting up an ecommerce site for our Lane Bryant retail chain. The site should
be operational at the beginning of March. By itself that would be enough to keep
us busy but there are other projects that continue in parallel thus stretching
everyone to their limit (and sometimes beyond).
I have ventured into creating a fan web site for one of my favorite singers,
It looks like the site may morph into the official site
for Madeleine. This would be quite a thrill to be the webmaster for this
talented lady's site. Standby for future news.
As reported on the last update, I finally got a digital camera that gives
me many of the capabilities of a 35mm SLR. I have been busy taking pictures,
primarily at concerts. Check out the results here. This camera is giving
just what I want. Check out the camera link to get more details on this camera.
The other relatively new gadget is the Panasonic DMR-E30 DVD recorder. I
am using this primarily as a VCR replacement, dumping programs from the TiVo
to DVDs. I'm also in the process of converting old VCR tapes to DVD. Although
the results (from VCR tape) are no better then the original tape its so nice
to have the smaller form factor and longer life (hopefully).
That's it for now.
