Just to see what it looks like (it looks like this) I hooked up my Eee to one of my 17" monitors and cranked it up to 1024x768 - the highest resolution that it will do out of the box (you can hack your X settings to go higher). Looked nice - and different!

And this is my desk at work. Check the phone on the right =)

Naval ENIGMA machine

Die Kriegsmarine (Navy)

With a naval force small in numbers, but technically advanced, the German Naval High Command, in order to offset Allied Naval superiority, adopted a strategy designed to conceal as much as possible the location, intention and movement of its forces.

Forced by its nature to rely on radio communications, the German Navy issued to each vessel from battleship to harbor defense craft an ENIGMA cipher machine to ensure security. Here, as with other services, the dependence on ENIGMA for communications security proved to be disastrous.

ENIGMA remains the best known German cryptographic machine of World War II.

From Wikipedia - A four-rotor Enigma was introduced by the Navy for U-boat traffic on 1 February 1942, called M4 (the network was known as "Triton", or "Shark" to the Allies). The extra rotor was fitted in the same space by splitting the reflector into a combination of a thin reflector and a thin fourth rotor.

Dell XPS17

My new Dell XPS17
i7 M740 1.73 GHz
8 gig memory
1.2 T hard drive
Nvidia GT 445M 3 Gig
blueray / DVDrw
backlighted keyboard
1600x900 screen (I know this is lower than I would like)

I received this machine a couple weeks ago and finally got all my software installed. It really is a nice computer and functions as my mobile desktop. It runs my 3D software quite well. Fast motherboard, memory and hard drive (all standard) makes the system roar. The bright crisp screen is easy on the eyes and the back-lit keyboard makes it easy to use at night.

People ask me about how hot the machine gets, and you can feel the heat if it is sitting on your lap, however the fan (blowing out to the left) seems to be adequate enough to cool down the system. I've not seen any instability issues when the machine is running flat out, so I think Dell sized the fan to handle the potential load.

The only thing I dislike about the system is the low resolution screen (1600x900) they packaged with the system. I wish I had the option to upgrade the screen to a higher resolution. This also appears to be the biggest complaint from other customers.

I would highly recommend a Dell computer to anyone based on their accidental warranty and North American tech support (though it does cost more to get that service). In the past I have found Dell to be very helpful and they have been quick to remedy any parts which have failed (which have not been many).

Dude, he's STILL taking my picture! Can't you make him stop?

Image by Ed Yourdon
It was hard to resist taking several pictures of this young woman: she seemed so clean-cut, attractive, and well dressed as she stood in the square while chatting on her cell phone.

She then marched back and forth several paces, then went into the entrance to the 72nd Street subway station, came back out again, marches around, continued chattering on her cell phone, and occasionally glanced at me with a puzzled look as I snapped several pictures. A good ten minutes went by until she finally disappeared for good into the subway station, still chattering away on her cell phone...

*************************

Note: this photo was published in a Sep 16, 2009 blog titled "NYで流行るもの." I have absolutely no idea what it means, but I'm glad the blogger liked my photo... It was also published in an undated (2009) blog titled "Are You Reaching Women Entrepreneurs? " I don't know what the photo has to do with entrepreneurs, but hey, who am I to judge? It was also published in a Nov 25, 2010 Bargain Babe blog titled "Using social media to score big this Black Friday." And it was published in a Jun 3, 2011 blog titled "Is the FCC Downplaying Potential Risks from Cell Phone Radiation?"

**********************

This is part of an evolving photo-project, which will probably continue throughout the summer of 2008, and perhaps beyond: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan -- between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

I don't like to intrude on people's privacy, so I normally use a telephoto lens in order to photograph them while they're still 50-100 feet away from me; but that means I have to continue focusing my attention on the people and activities half a block away, rather than on what's right in front of me.

I've also learned that, in many cases, the opportunities for an interesting picture are very fleeting -- literally a matter of a couple of seconds, before the person(s) in question move on, turn away, or stop doing whatever was interesting. So I've learned to keep the camera switched on (which contradicts my traditional urge to conserve battery power), and not worry so much about zooming in for a perfectly-framed picture ... after all, once the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it's pretty trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the main subject.

For the most part, I've deliberately avoided photographing bums, drunks, drunks, and crazy people. There are a few of them around, and they would certainly create some dramatic pictures; but they generally don't want to be photographed, and I don't want to feel like I'm taking advantage of them. I'm still looking for opportunities to take some "sympathetic" pictures of such people, which might inspire others to reach out and help them. We'll see how it goes ...

The only other thing I've noticed, thus far, is that while there are lots of interesting people to photograph, there are far, far, *far* more people who are *not* so interesting. They're probably fine people, and they might even be more interesting than the ones I've photographed ... but there was just nothing memorable about them.
