I got this for some minor contribution to the Windows Feedback program. Totally worth it!

Yes! Signed. Notarized.
I purchased a 2006 Honda F4i day before yesterday via ebaymotors.com. Shipping from another state.
Yesterday, after much research into the seller and due diligence — and hand wringing. And pacing. And late nights — I bought a 2006 Honda F4i motorcycle. This is my ideal bike. The only way I could be happier is if it was a 750 but Honda doesn’t sell one of those.
In addition to a large sum of money, I put $1000 of camera equipment in trade. I sold my D40 body, which was already for sale, my 18-200 VR fresh back from Nikon for an AF fix and working better than ever and my 50mm f/1.4. At this point, the only camera I can shoot with is my little Casio Exilim. I don’t regret the trade one bit. I’ll probably just pick up an 18-55 Nikkor for a hundred bucks and be back in business.
I just upgraded my Netflix account from 3 to 6 simultaneous DVDs.
I’ve used WhatSize a few times and it’s been useful. It is not as amazing useful as the Windows-only app DiskMapper from Micro Logic. DiskMapper’s graphical representation of files by their size is what makes it so fantasically, stupendously awesome.
Ergonis released Typinator 3.0 today — or, at least, Typinator notified me of the update today. It has lots of nice refinements. It adds the TidBITS autocorrection dictionary (available previously as an individual download but I didn’t know it) and, best of all, there’s no longer a dock icon but a menu bar icon instead. Terrific. I haven’t used it for a single correction yet but once I get rolling today I’ll use it a lot.
I gave the D70 as a gift this weekend. It was well received. Body only.
