A little productivity

Folded rose

When I'm here on vacation, I of course have to take pictures of my mother's roses. So here's the first of what will eventually be several.

If there's one thing that I most wish that my current camera has, it's better handling of color. I don't think it knows how to devote enough colorspace to a particular color, and of course it's not a good enough camera to shoot RAW (which I suspect would help). So shooting anything with a lot of saturated color tends to result in JPEG or camera artifacts, as you can see in this one.

I poked around on-line this morning and then went and read and finished another book. That's lovely. That's something I rarely take the time to do during the day at home, since weekends are already so crowded with the things I can't do during the week. Then I felt like doing something a bit productive, so got the remctl release out that I'd been working on for the past couple of weeks, which promptly cured that feeling. I don't think I'm going to be getting much done for at least a few more days of vacation; I'm still way low on energy for doing anything productive.

A review will be coming, but I can say now that series readers will be happy with Brust's Iorich. I just wish he could write books in the Vlad series faster!
