New toys

Just picked up a pretty slick Canon HF100 on a Black Friday deal (yeah, so “just” is a bit of an understatement). Now I just need a proper SDHC reader and I can see if I can get the AVCHD file format working under Linux.

Gotta figure that out before Charlie gets here 🙂

Holy crap

I’m gonna be a daddy. Like, some short guy will be thinking of me as “father”, and depending on me. That’s just trippy, and a little bit scary, but frickin’ awesome at the same time. Still trying to wrap my head around it. We’ve done a ton of work around the house to get ready for him; painted his room, installed a humidifier onto the furnace, and so on. And then all the classes… lots of stuff to learn about. Makes you wonder how kids survived up until now. Oh well.  It’ll be an adventure, and I’ll have someone to watch cartoons with 🙂
