Aruba and Curacao, May 2008
London, Oxford, Brussels, Berlin, Vienna, 7/2007
- A little getaway between spring semester and summer session.
- Summer break! Visiting Monica while she was at Oxford led to several side trips.
Amsterdam and Edinburgh, 3/2007
- Memorial Day Weekend 2007 in Belize
Paraty, Ilha Grande, and Rio - Brazil, 7/2006
- Spring Break with Monica, Eric and Toni
Torino Winter Olympics, 2/2006
- Paraty, Ilha Grande, and Rio with Eric and Toni. Finally put them up,
having accepted that I'll never get around to sorting, labelling, or organizing them in any way. Eric and Toni's pictures are here:
Paraty, Ilha Grande, and Rio on flickr, and have a few dupes from my set.
- Starting with a brief visit to Milan, then up to Torino for the winter
games, stopping back in Milan before
continuing on to Barcelona. From there, on to Granada, Tarifa, Tangier,
Gibraltar, and Madrid.
Four countries, 8 cities, 2 weeks - there's a lot of pictures in here (I
really need to get better about not taking pictures of everything in
museums...), hence the shortcuts here to various parts.
Travelogue was blogged starting here.
- Taking a few extra days while I was in the area for IETF-63 in
Paris, I rambled from Amsterdam to Brussels and on to Paris, then up to
London before heading back home.
Great Canadian Road Trip VI, 10/2004
- A little business, a little pleasure... Several days in Lisbon and
Cascais, followed by meandering up to Porto and Coimbra
Great Canadian Road Trip V, 11/2003
- This year, we followed the Kootenay Ice through the WHL's eastern
division, as Seattle's schedule didn't work out well for us. There are some
of Brandon's pictures mixed in.
IETF 58, 11/2003
- What compels normally sane people to venture into the depths of Alberta
and Sasketchewan in the middle of winter? Hockey, of course! See Brandon
and Erik follow the Seattle Thunderbirds across central Canada...
- Some pictures of minneapolis and ietf-58 on the way to gcrt-v.
sadly the night pictures are cruddy as I hadn't yet figured out how to
manually tweak things on the new camera...
Netkom POPs, circa 1998
- Pilgrimage to 23.com, meeting up with
several old Netkom buddies who did a motorcycle convoy up from the bay area.
- I resisted making these public for a long time, since the locations,
equipment, and so on might be considered to reveal confidential information.
And, well, I didn't want to publish some of the more embarassing aspects of
some of these sites. Given that several years have passed, and ICG now is
part of Level3, I assume that they've
long since moved out of any of these sites or at least completely redone
them. And there are some fantastic cable-management techniques demonstrated
here that are too good not to share ;)
Most of these were taken by Mike Newton, some by me.
various housing pictures
After getting the remodeling bug from living in a rental for a while in Atlanta,
we bought a house, worked on
it for a couple months, then moved in in December 2003. Right now only the before pictures are online
(from when we did the inspection pre-purchase), but the results may turn up
someday as well.

Watson with some seriously freaky eyes-in-the-light effect thing going on (84k)
Same cat, better lighting (66k)
This page is getting cluttered, so older stuff (mostly just the now-totally-irrelevant stuff) has it's own place now.
Most of the older pictures were taken with a CoolPix 990. Some of the old
stuff was taken with various 35mm cameras and converted to photocd when
Then the 990 got stolen (along with a lot of other stuff), so since September
of '03, most stuff you'll see here was taken with a Canon Digital Rebel. I'd
almost forgotten just how nice it is to work with a real SLR...
Although as wonderful a camera as that is, it's bulky and not really
convenient to travel with or to use for quick snapshots. So as of January '05
most of the vacation pictures probably came from the big Canon's little
brother, an A85. After a while, I decided a better midrange camera was in
order, and since mid 2008 a Canon G9 has been my weapon of choice - good
quality and control, shoots raw, and more-or-less pocket sized.
Everything used to be managed manually (with some simple homegrown scripts to
generate thumbnails and indexes), but recently I've switched to
Apple's iPhoto. I hate to sound
like an ad (since I'm not being paid - Mr. Jobs, feel free to change that!),
but OS X rocks, and iPhoto is great for managing pictures, and exports to
fairly clean html (though I've gotten lazy, and now sometimes use Picasa).
