Fish of the week from Hong Kong. Most with funny triangular Max Fleischer-esque catchlights in their eyes.

Anyone who knows me has probably heard me whining about fixing the espresso machine. After something like 6 months, it's all back together. The insides look like this,
if you are wondering why it took so long. Part No. 1150 is a spring that takes more than my body weight to compress. It's a wonder I wasn't killed taking it apart. Of course, I found this manual now, not when I was taking the thing apart.

Etienne-Jules Marey: chronophotographer.

I've replaced the link to the "occasional photo", which I never got around to changing, with one to my Flickr photostream. You can look at it here. Like my del.icio.us it's a raw feed of whatever I happen to be interested in, or doing at that moment. Expect arty stuff mixed with cat pictures mixed with people rolling around on wheeled planks of wood.

This is one pair of jeans that I wouldn't cut the label off of. How long before people start printing counterfeits of these?
