Weekend update: Other things found last week:

Not sure if I'll be able to get this posted as I have been trying to post to the photo blog for quite some time with no results, so sorry about the delay....

Blogger says one of its databases is down. I'll keep trying to post here and on my photo blog, but have had no luck so far. (If you can read this it has succeeded.)
