Last year I bought a new DSLR camera. As part of the deal, I agreed to use it and not let it gather dust in a corner. One of the things I've been doing is trying to take regular pictures and upload them to a daily photo blog.
For most of last year I was managing to load one or two pictures or "blips" per week at best. Since Christmas I've been able to maintain a daily stream, and while only a third are actually DSLR images - I don't take it to work - I think it has been useful forcing me to think creatively and my DSLR has been used more than it would have been otherwise.
If you have been following this blog you will have noticed a fall off of postings here over the past year. This is partially a result of more tweeting and Google+ use, but increasingly because of my blipfoto efforts. This blog isn't dead it's just resting a bit more of the time than it use to.
You should find at the top right a link to my current blipfoto entry, which should contain a picture, which if you follow the link will reveal some trivial diary entry and a larger image.
On Sunday night my 7 year old DNUK desktop would not turn off but was clearly not actually on. On Monday I took the PSU out, on Wednesday a friend lent me a spare and the rest of the computer is okay.
Today I've ordered a cheap silent PSU to replace the noisy and now dead one that was originally in there.
