People have asked me "Steve, what have you been up to since you suspended the weekly column until July?"   Easy, I've been preparing to move and while the personal moving things like plane tickets, movers, buying a new house, new cars, etc.. is simple stuff, the delicate matter of repatriating my male African Grey took a small act of god.. or rather JTG.. and emmigrating my female African Grey will take even more magic from the capable JTG.  It's good to have friends.  I just hope I've done enough to earn them.

It's back..  If you're from my generation you'll surely remember the Commodore 64 below.  This was my second computer, my first was the Commodore Pet.  The C64 however was my first color computer and the possibilities were endless.  I can still remember the smell of new plastic and componentry as I took it from the box for the first time.  NOW you can get a modern Commodore 64 with a PC inside!  Read here.

This is a really fun link.  You can watch an eagle family live (there's a webcam in the nest) as the eggs hatch and the chicks eating, etc..   There is even a chat room where you can share your awe of nature with others.

Digital Photography Review just released a great full review of Canon's new T3i (600d).  This camera has a lot going for it and I'm sure will be as popular as previous Rebels.
