Ping

Hmm, yeah so not much happening at the moment. I'll be in Israel from mid December until the end of February, so I've got a metric tonne or two worth of things that I need to do to get ready, and as usually my sleep/awake hours are somewhat messed up ( as a clue, this entry was posted before going to bed, not after waking up :) ). Ah well, it'll all get done in the end.

I've also been doing some investigating on the camera front. I've got a Nikon FM10, but I really want a digital camera for my trip. The digital camera I've been using doesn't actually belong to me, and won't be available for my trip so it's time for me to purchase one.

So far I've got candidates from Nikon, Canon, and Panasonic. The Nikon Coolpix P1, Panasonic FX-9K, and Canon PowerShot A620 all look like really good cameras. The Panasonic looks to have the edge size wise, which is important since I want something I can stick in a pocket. The Panasonic also has image stabilization, which is crazy cool.

On the Libranet front, I hope to be able to post something more official soon, but basically the operation is shutting down. I don't know if this will be permanent or not, but it's the situation for now. I'm not a business man, and I can't run the company on my own so it's really the only choice for the moment. There is a possibility of finding some outside involvement to give Libranet a good kick in the pants and get it going again, but I'm not going to be able to even investigate anything along this path until I get back to Canada next spring. Still, if anyone out there is seriously interested (or knows of someone who is interested) in getting involved in the GNU/Linux world in a big way, don't hesitate to let me know.
