  • Finally integrated #Fancybox into @Wetpixel. Love the thing. #

  • Blackberry Tour is ridiculously slow. Lots of 20-30 second spinning clocks. Only downside to going global on Verizon. #
  • @andybiggs no Blackberry Bold on Verizon. Used to have one on AT&T. GSM in Bay Area not an option. in reply to andybiggs #
  • About to fall asleep on my feet. So much to do over the next few days -- not sure how that will happen. #
