Perhaps one of your computer gooks can help me
NIKON D70 - 1/30 sec, f 1.8 at 50 mm, ISO

Perhaps one of your computer gooks can help me

At the risk that this is going to cause me all sorts of problems, here it today's post.

At work today, my mother IMed me.

Ma: Hi
Spudooli: Hi
Ma: Esther has a new PC with Xp on it and the text is too small
Spudooli: Oh
Ma: How do we make the text bigger?
Spudooli: You mean in IE?
Ma: I think she has Firefox
Ma: Perhaps one of your computer gooks can help me?
Spudooli: gooks?
Spudooli: You don't mean geeks do you?
Ma: yeah

Normally at night when I leave the office I say to the remaining staff, "goodnight computer geeks" as I walk past and out the door. But tonight it was too good an opportunity to miss. So after explaining the back story, it was "goodnight computer gooks!".

The Photo
While watching the Indy highlights I noticed a new indoor plant had appeared. The setting sun was hitting it nicely. The Indy cars had got very boring with them just going round and round so I went and grabbed the camera. By the time I had it, the sun was gone, of course. So rather than wasting the shot, I had a play with Hugh and Saturation.
