T shirt Update.
I washed my 2.o shirt and it still looks good, nothing cracked, peeled, mutilated or spindled. It did shrink a tad, I plan to wear it to the gym and represent.

Computer Center

The Summer Help we hired in is almost gone.
I return to putting in slightly less than 20 percent of my time at work in this room.
I've decided to use this as an opportunity to get all 2.0 on ya. 9-12 hours a week to blog this, flickr that, RSS like a stone mo'. Perhaps I'll even institute a weekly IM session were I'll be available for Questions 2.0. or even "Make Kay Draw Something" day on Queeky
I'm drawing right now 11:34 am

I am consuming a turkey sandwich, awaiting the taping of ROCK THE PLAZA. Which will be more like JUMP AROUND FOR 10 MINUTES THEN WILT THE PLAZA owing to the extreme heat.

Melissa with Ice Cream

Here's a still from the tutorial shot I did yesterday in the library's cafe. I used a wireless mic and it turned out good. The lightings not the greatest but hey, that's what filters are for.

Some Helpful Links

Here is a wiki about LAME, the translator that works with Audacity to make MP3s.
Here is where you can get it.
This is a Link to CD EX that Wikipedia says also translates Audacity Files to MP3s. I'm going to check it out because LAME is making me blind with rage.
