Back Up and Running!
I guess that this proves you are never too old or too experienced to learn the most valuable of lessons....in this case: backups! My Web Host is migrating accounts to a new platform and somehow most of this page disappeared! I did a quick patch job and we're back up and running. A completely new redesigned website is forthcoming, but it's huge and I've got limited time to work on it. In the meantime, enjoy what I have here!

2005 Emigrant Trails Bike Trek
We just finished a 3 day bike trek in Sierra Nevadas of California. The Emigrant Trails Bike Trek is an annual fundraiser for the Sacramento Lung Association Emigrant Trails. This year was not quite 100 miles, but oh, the elevation! Donner Summit (7,800) and Brockway Summit (7,178) were the highlights of this trip. And the funny thing was that i t was easier than last year. Here's the story.

Italy Travel Page Posted
It's getting harder and harder to put these things toget her, and they seem to keep getting longer and longer with each trip. Actually, this one was written relatively soo n after our trip - only a 6 month lag time: Not bad, give my previous procrastinations. Pretty soon, I'll need t o move from putting these things online to getting "dead tree edition" (a.k.a "Books") published! Anyway...click here for the lowdown on our vacation in Italy. This trip includes highlight s from Rome (including a real-life pickpocketing which is unfortunately entirely autobiographical), Florence and Tu scany.

My web page is now hosted by Ipowerweb. The domain name technicalecstasy.org now is a tru e domain (before it was merely reflected to http://technicalecstasy.org/). The new server also allows me 400 m egs of space! I am currently in the process of re-doing all of the travel pages: You now can (or w ill soon be able to) click on the thumbnail pictures in my travel pages to see full size images!

Rejoice! GIMP available for win32 platform!
Wow! Someone finally ported the GIMP from the 'nix plat form to Windows. I was suprised....it actually works pretty well. It also has TWAIN support for scanne rs, etc. This means no more scanning in Paint Shop Pro, then rebooting into Linux (couldn't get the scanner detected in Linux...USB support issues)to edit the images! Anyway, you can get it here: http://user.sgic.fi/~tml/gimp/win 32/

More Travel Pages Done
Wow...I managed to get the London and Bahamas trip pages done (it's amazing the work you can get done when you have a few days off from work). Check 'em out. The only travel pages that remain to be written are the Santiago, Chile trip and my skiing retrospective. The Santiago trip should be up here by the end of the week. As usual, enjoy, kids!
