What to do on a long weekend? Digikam, Ardour, Drupal, new computers....

Monday is the Labor Day holiday for US residents, which means three days to have fun. As usual my todo list is too long: review a computer from ZaReason, learn more Drupal, think about upgrading my ancient Debian Etch system, though I still can't think of a reason why, learn more Ardour, write up a RAW conversion howto for Digikam...there are not enough hours in the day. The weather is going to be nice, so the great outdoors will be calling too.

Here are some Digikam-edited images created from Canon cr2 RAW files; Digikam is wonderful, powerful, and easy. Which reminds me of another project-- calibrate my monitor. There are some Web sites with charts so you can make adjustments by eye, but the most accurate way is to use a measuring instrument. There is some Linux software for these devices such as Argyll, which calibrates monitors, printers, and scanners.

I wish everyone a great weekend whatever you are doing, and we'll see you next week!
