gasp! I need some air, and was searching for it at - of all places- on google, semi-geek that I am, when I came across this website. Not quite what I was looking for, but refreshing nevertheless.

Whoever thought you could publish by email!

Wow - this is really cool. All I need to do is send in an email, and automatically publishes by blog, in my own web space! Whoever thought that would be possible! Well, I'm sure at least one person did, otherwise we would not have this in the first place.

Now what I need is a spell checker and a sentence capitalizer. Or better yet - since all I am really doing is throw ideas into the air - blog publishing through the telephone.

Spoke to dad in Beijing. Apparently someone convinced him that he was being served snake eggs, since chicken eggs are not allowed in China because of some bird flu issues. My Chinese colleagues think otherwise, and I let him know of that.

The day at work was good. 2 new people joined today, making my position relatively more senior than ever before. Heck, it's already been nearly 4 years since I joined this company - maybe it's time I moved.

FYI - this weekend was awesome. My friends and I went over to sunny California, to hike up Mount Whitney, the highest point in the lower 48 states of the US. What's more surprising is, we actually did it. 'Hiked' is not really the right word - it's more like we 'dragged' our collective asses up and down the mountain. We took about 20 hours from start to finish, and that's not really what 'hikers' do. Then again, it's reaching the technical limits of extreme day hiking - 4 more hours, and we are out
of scope. For the trip report, look elsewhere.

Which brings me back to what I did at work - downloaded the snaps from my digital camera to the PC at work. Then downloaded Adobe Photoshop Album - Starter Edition, and got to work with the snaps. Hopefully, I'll have the trip report written up and published before my memory cells give way.
