Boston

Full Day Two.

Another chill day here outside the city (well, Boston that is).

Today’s big project was doing a sample issue of Sign of the Times — A Chronicle of Decadence in the Atomic Age as a Libboo book. Almost got it right the first time, but need to rescan the cover at a higher resolution, fix a bad piece of code, and try adding the original graphics to the issue. Right now, it’s just all the text. Not bad for a first effort, but it’s going to be some serious work to convert all nineteen issues.

All this coding was done to the smell of a crock pot full of Moroccan Spiced Stew which was the original plan for dinner, Netta and Ashly joining us here. But wait, change of plans. We are now going to Netta’s for a fish dinner with tapenade except for Ashley who will be having the stew because she’s allergic to fish.

Great dinner, good wine, and back home to work on the project some more.

    I have a few questions for you on your scanning project. Are you scanning negs, photos or both? Do you then store them on CD/DVD and dispose of the originals? Store in iPhoto? I have tons of old negs/pics that take up far too much space and would love an idea on how to handle this.

    my problem is that I’m only scanning only the negs with people in them, to pass along. It means I’m still going to end up with a “tub” of old photos and negatives. Unfortunately my solution only deals with sharing, not with the getting rid of the other stuff.
