Nothing. And pictures. Nothing and pictures.

I was on a conference call as I typed this—actually, it was a series of conference calls—so I had to type quietly. (That doesn’t impact your ability to read this post; I just wanted to share.)

I’ve decided to take some vacation in August. This last week a colleague and I have been covering for my Project Manager, while he’s on vacation, and I’ve decided that I need to take my own vacation, as soon as he gets back. (I’ll stay here for at least a day, when he gets back, to transition, but then I’m heading off.) I’m getting sort of burnt-out, and run-down.

Speaking of which, I’m fairly sure that I’ll be getting sick, this week. I can already feel my body starting to complain, and I have a deployment this weekend, which means I’ll be losing a bunch of sleep. So it’s almost guaranteed that I’ll be sick by Monday.

On an unrelated note, since I’ve got Flickr up and running, here is a picture, from my Flickr account:

That picture is currently my desktop picture, on my work computer. I took it from my balcony, when we were in Barbados—one of those pictures that you really couldn’t plan, it just naturally happened, and came out nice. If you click it, you’ll be taken to Flickr, and you can do things like download it, comment on it, etc. Not really such a big deal—and yet I couldn’t do that, when my photos were on Yahoo! Photos, and it sucked.

Not so impressed? Well, try clicking on this one:

In this case, when Flickr comes up, if you hover your mouse over certain parts of the picture, I’ve included notes about it. I’m not assuming that I’ll use this feature all that often, but when I do, I’m toying with the idea of changing the picture’s border colour, as I’ve done above, as a visual cue for when it would be [more] worth your while to go to the photo’s Flickr page.
