It's been a long time since I went to Seattle but I found old pictures that I took on a hill of the city skyline. I had 11 pictures taken and found a really cool autostitching program to piece them all together to give me this picture:

My Family's First Cellphone

Cellphones have become so common place that it's a shock to hear someone tell you they don't have a cellphone if they can drive.

But cellphones were not common just a short time ago. Here's my first cell phone:

It's a old Motorola that I'm sure no one cares to know the model number. It worked and it had a display. My house phones don't have displays. This phone worked on the old Cantel network, which is now consumed as Rogers.

Printer Cartridge Garbage

For the past couple months, I've been out of ink for one of my printers. It's a new printer so it doesn't let you print anything if any of your ink cartridges are empty. I decided to swing by the local BestBuy to pick up an HP ink cartridge so I could print my travel documents.

I got one and opened it up. Here's what it came with:

There was the plastic seal from BestBuy to protect the metal detector stuck on the paper box, the paper box, a small paper box, a plastic wrap, and finally the cartridge.
Unwrapping all that reminded me of those joke gifts friends give you that make you unwrap newspapers and go through a couple empty shoe boxes. A real big waste of materials.
