For some reason there are number of Buddhist temples in Austral.  It is a strange part of the world.  More to come on this in the future.

Prospect Dam

August 31st, 2009 — 8:46am

Took a trip out to prospect dam.  Not sure about this, but the water level looked pretty good.  Good to see.

The whole area was strange, very well manicured and maintained but all the features looked so dated.  The dam was finished in 1888, and these days most of the water that we drink doesn’t come from the dam, but the reservoir is used in peak periods.

Just caught the brilliant alien flick District 9 (didn’t think I’d ever write that).  On the way home we noticed that Gatorade is running a campaign with Stephanie Rice.  Who seems to be some kind of national hero.

I did a shoot yesterday for a couple friends who make ice cream sandwiches.  Pat and Stick, one’s tall, the other one, not so much.

Epson Stylus Photo R290

August 11th, 2009 — 11:32pm

is a piece of crap.

I spent this morning trying to print.  Not a photographic print, not even an color print, just a letter. I’ve given up trying to get any quality out of these small, quickly outdated pieces of plastic, but thought this wouldn’t be TOO tough a job for epson.  A simple black and white letter.  Only requires one color ink, from one little jet.  Apparently that’s too tough for the Epson R290.  First of all, there’s a glitch in the Epson Print Utility that won’t allow the ink levels to be updated on the status monitor when there is a job in the queue (perhaps the only time anyone think to look at their print cartridge levels.), Secondly, I know I just put new cartridges in a couple weeks ago, made five 4×6 prints and then let it collect dust.  Arrggh, I think I’m going to go online and buy a Canon.  Their camera’s are better than epson’s so why did I insist on buying an Epson printer?


I’m off now to use jo’s $80 piece of crap HP.  Letter is printed.  I guess you can’t argue with results!  HP:1 Epson: 0
