You Are What You Eat!

The sky has turned a brilliant and gorgeous blue, quite like my own eye colour. I just thought I'd be sure to add that info here as I will only be adding a yellowing JPG file for today's blog entry. I did have to edit a bit in order to get it to look old and yellowing though. I already have enough photographs of beautiful Pier Park.

On to the old screenshot: Technology has a way of changing quickly enough to make relatively recent data look quaint or even humourous. For example, back in the day, an old 360K floppy seemed spacious. That seems pretty hard to believe now that we're streaming all of our HDTV content nowadays. I have no doubt that these juxtapositions between past and present will continue.

Of course, my eJournal and images functions as a repository for many things I could, in theory, wish to re-visit in the future. I frequently use it now in order to recall when we went somewhere or did something. How the hell else would I be able to know the year, much less the exact day, on which some trivial event happened?

How much do I eat?

I figured I could simply add my Internet bandwidth usage for last year. You'll note there was no activity during the initial several months as we were spending the winter in Luxor, Egypt. Even with all the binge television, I haven't recently come near our cap. I do remember when Telus upped the basic 16-mbps package to 200 gb per month though. It wasn't too long ago. For now it is sufficient. Yet maybe when I look back at these numbers in the future, they'll seem ridiculously low.
