…are up. Rather, now they’re all up. The first batch has been up since Preview Night (a.k.a. Starting Night). Anyway, I’ve finally finished posting Max Pictures’ 200 photos covering the 4+1 days of the convention. Click the slideshow button and enjoy.

…is messy this morning. Still sorting through Comic-Con 2008 photos. Days 0 through 2 are online at maxpixpix on Picasa. Later, more.
…of the 2008 San Diego Comic-Con is over and done. Miss T and I and the K&E&k! Show spent a good six-and-a-half hours (less an hour break) perusing Comic-Con’s massive 523,000 sq. ft. exhibit hall. Starting at row 100 we wound our way up-and-down the aisles, reaching roughly row 2000 (or 40% of the exhibit […]
…is on. San Diego Comic-Con 2008 has kicked off this Wednesday with the inaptly-named Preview Night. With attendee registrations selling out well in advance of the convention, Preview Night has become the official “Starting Night” of the event. Miss T and I arrived a little later than usual to pick up our registration badges and […]
…in San Diego. With the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) about to start, Miss T and I are expecting some news on our favorite filmed-in-Hawaii-but-not-set-in-Hawaii show, Lost. In addition to Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof taking part in a showrunner’s discussion on Friday and the big Lost panel on Saturday, Octagon Global Recruiting will have a […]

BART is the third stage in my four-stage commute to work, and is the second-most reliable mode that I use (the other three are: walking; bicycling; and Amtrak). There are some good things about BART (90% on time; relatively low-cost […]
…came out this morning. The Central Valley has been trapped under a layer of wildfire haze for the past three weeks. This has given us some beautiful red skies, but living on the surface of Mars gets old after awhile. This morning I was surprised to see actual, honest-to-goodness blue sky—fluffy white clouds, sunbeams streaming […]
…ended up in a graveyard. With temperatures and the AQI (air quality index) finally safe enough, Miss T and I darted out of the house this weekend for a morning walk. One of the spots we stopped at along the way was the Davis Cemetery District. You can see photos from the cemetery at 10 […]
…but not for everyone. And, by everyone, I mean, me. While I knew there would be lines around the block at the Apple retail stores, I held out some hope that the situation would be better at the decidedly unglamorous AT&T stores. Miss T and I made an early morning pass at the AT&T store […]
…by a window in the lounge car. Actually, just about all of the seats in this type of lounge car are by a window. There are three types of lounge cars running on the Capitol Corridor: an old-style Superliner car, and two California Cars, the Cafe Coach and the Dining Car. The Superliner cars have […]
