ex machina

designers of the sb600 flash, i applaud ye.

sure, i probably shouldn't have been so rash in deciding to take apart my perfectly functional sb-600 flash, but what can i say, i like to take things apart.

as someone who used to set land speed records for removing the central nervous systems of fruit fly larvae, i'm quite comfortable with manipulating teeny, tiny parts and pieces. but the designers of the sb-600 almost had me beat with their devious industrial design that seemingly intentionally makes it nearly impossible to put all the pieces back together again.

clever and confounding, but ultimately i claimed victory and the flash lived to see (hopefully) many more days.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
