Another Dark Little Corner
Started this before change to "New Blogger", as backup in case of trouble with digiphoto blog "In a Small Dark Room", or rants & links blog "Hello Cruel World" . Useful - at one stage Dark Room was there, but like the astrophysical Dark Matter, we could't see it ... better now, but kept Just In Case.
There is nothing. There is no God and no universe, there is only empty space, and in it a lost and homeless and wandering and companionless and indestructible Thought. And I am that thought. And God, and the Universe, and Time, and Life, and Death, and Joy and Sorrow and Pain only a grotesque and brutal dream, evolved from the frantic imagination of that same Thought. Mark Twain (letter to Joseph Twichell after his wife's death)

Some Online Document Tools
Possibly useful online document tools. The best thing to do with all of them is to save often and keep a local copy. The technology systems and implementation are still roughish
"Google's online word processor, docs.google.com [I think it was Writely before - MCP], lets you import documents and then save them in other formats, such as RTF, Word, OpenOffice, and PDF. This makes it easy to convert troublesome files even if you can't/won't install OpenOffice.

The Face of Sydney
Combining portraits of local residents and specialist techniques that turn Census data into visual images, The Face of Sydney consists of digitally layered composite images that represent the collective face of the city. More than 1,400 Sydney residents had their portraits taken in photo shoots in locations spanning the city’s villages.
During Art & About, these faces will be projected on a massive scale onto the wall of the AMP Building at Circular Quay,
