Another shameless plug: if you also have cool old photos hanging around, try out my latest little project, Scan with Stan.


And finally, here is a more recent photo of me wearing a jacket that I had custom made in Korea, from my post “I was an Apple Fanboy“.

How sad that now I get the most traffic on this blog from my post, 65 Reasons why Mac Sucks. 🙂
