About 13-14 years ago, as a kid, I remember watching a news program where they were showing off the latest in technological innovations. One of them was the spellchecker. A reporter typed out some misspelled text. Then he pushed a button on the keyboard, and the computer pointed out the wrong words. At the time, this was amazing; a computer having the power to correct spelling. Wow!!
Happy New Year to everyone...
So after a busy and hectic two weeks, this was my first chance at another post. Shopping, relatives, food and fun in the snow - time flew by. I am also having tons of fun with my new D80, and I'm going to start a gallery on here soon. I'm also going to turn some of them into wallpaper versions for anyone who would like them (Yes! I will also include widescreen versions where applicable.)
Which brings me to my to-do list for the New Year:

Recently I've started getting more and more comment spam. At first it started out with one every few days, now it's about two or three a day. I actually like this - for now. It's good to see some traffic to the website, even though it may not be good traffic. It's a small indicator that the site has some exposure somewhere.
