I bought a new computer. A very good deal. For 620.- Frs., I get a PIII 450MHz, 256Mb RAM, a 32Mb Asus graphics card, two CD burners, an internal Zip drive, and a pretty neat 17″ monitor.
The only problem is that I now realize I’m going to have to redo all my scans: my crappy old monitor made me lighten them a shade too much. That’s what you get for working with bad tools!
But that’ll be for when I come back from India, folks. I’m off in three days!

As for the digital camera, it’s on the “wishlist” (feeling generous, any
of you?) – but I’m not going to abandon normal film though, I like it way
Others might have the same bad tools, so the new scans might become to

nevertheless: Bon voyage!!!!
hehe. if some people are to be unsatisfied, I’d rather it be because I’m
“doing it the right way” (and trust me, it won’t make the scans unreadable
– I wasn’t too happy with them anyway).
What is the right way? Being conform to standards? Being readable with any
browser? Questions, that are not to answer that easily!
Do it YOUR way!!! We like it the way you’re doing it!

Easy. The right way, as far as scans are concerned, is the one which makes
the scanned picture on a properly calibrated monitor most ressemble the
Well, I agree! And I am looking forward to new picture scans of India
