Macbeth the Usurper

More Car Buying

All the car buying paperwork is done. Got a loan through the credit union 1.75% lower than the CarMax offered loan. And by the way, the CarMax loan was pretty cheap to begin with.

Old green car is now gone. Jenny should return the tags today, then rejigger the insurance.

We still need to set up automatic payments.

Goose-eggs on this month's book sales. I had hoped for better on this run, but I was wrong. This "getting known" thing is tougher than it looks.

$25 Camera Report

I finally got a gander at my $25 camera pictures. Nothing amazing. In fact, a little dull. The camera was still worth $25, but my SLR trounces it, hands down.

For good pictures, you need good optics and good sensors. Now you know.

Of course, you can take good pictures with a cheapie camera, but for the kind of picture that I like taking, the cheapie makes it hard. It doesn't capture color very well at all in the yellow/green range.
