Well I managed to get it to take a few frames but without a "XP version" of the iSight software, the pictures really really sucked.
er... my BIL loaned me his iSight to try out... and it's coming in handy to test some firewire problems I'm having with my other camera... :)

Yesterday... sigh... was not a good day.
I had a headache the size of a planet... brought on by getting whatever the kids have.
Geo seems to be past the fever stage and is now firmly into the coughs-so-much-his-throat-is-on-fire stage.
Edward? Spent yesterday in serious fever cycles... Getting him to take medicine is harder than getting the pope to go out on hallowween.
We are ... the sick family. ug.
Now... I'm feeling surprisingly good, so maybe my cycle was just headache and done. The jury is still out.
Z has had... well... really nothing of this yet... so fingers are fully crossed.

Oh, and we watched Ray last night.
I cried and cried every time it dealt his little brother George... sigh.
Lovely movie. Who knew he was such dick... talented... genius... but a dick.

wearing
~ pj pants, and a big gap hoodie.
planning
~ to listen to the umpteenth playing of The Incredibles as a kind of back drop to our household...
~ to take care of the sick crew...
~ finish installing software on my SIL's computer...
~ go to TKD? not sure...
~ not go to my brothers for dinner... sick kids making that ... a no go.
wishing
~ to shoot big congrats out to nbbmom on the sale of that house!!! (wohoo). (are you singing along with Gwen to "If I was a rich girl..." ??? :D)
~ meeshsmind's head doesn't hurt too much today.
~ that gravity manages to shake the headache...

Geek question: Ever heard of this? Plug in Hard Drive to IDE and Power in a pc as a master disk... and computer WILL NOT EVEN START... I'm talking "ON" button sends power for 1/1000th of a second and the system just sits there... no power.. no nothing. Unplug drive... plug in another drive... presto-bingo No Problemo. So as soon as I plug the this one western digital 80gig drive in ... dead. Replace it with another western dig 80gig drive and we're good to go? Can the PFM* on a hard disk actually cause this? (wary wary strange).

ok... I go be doc dad... and see how things are in the house of cough.
sigh
Talk to you later. :)

* PFM: pure fucking magic... descriptive phrase for whatever happens inside the little black chips on computer parts.
