These were taken in the last few minutes in front of my webcam. The WC had not worked in some time on this machine. I finally figured out that the graphics driver was out of date. Once I updated it, the problem with the machine crashing went away. As part of the problem, the webcam would simply not work. Problem solved. I figured it out on my own, which makes one in a row. You just know that Mike Cranston would have figured it out sooner than I did.
The webcam app I run is called cheese, and the latest version of it has enhanced the "effects" feature so that the image the webcam is capturing is shown in the format of the given effect. Looks pretty neat. And, as you can see, it shows off today's Christmas tie very well indeed, and in a context you normally don't get to see.
How was your day, anyway? What are you wearing? And how about them Blue Jays? Small talk has always been a problem for me, in case you hadn't noticed.
See you tomorrow.
