I’m learning some of the photo apps on my ipad/iphone. I can’t wait for the new phone upgrade and wished I had a camera on my ipad. The app of the day is Diptic.
It makes little layouts of multiple photos and provides multiple ways to export. You can tweek the individual photos as well.Here is my first combing flowers from the Cook Park Butterfly Garden.

Today begins 5 weeks of PeopleSoft training. I’ve been very unhappy about it. Had to cancel a trip to New Orleans. I’ve been anticipating my commute increasing by 2 – 3 hours. But the worst part is I have difficulty picturing myself doing this type of development. It is very strange taking this class in the building I used to work at.
I have to say, I really like being downtown. Spend lunch in the Park blocks. My old Coffee People is now a very fancy Celtic Import Shop.
