Don't expect this to make any sense.
A mile is one minute of arc in latitude. That's the nautical mile, anyway. The other mile is about 200 meters shorter or so. But I prefer the definition of one minute of arc... It seems somehow less arbitrary. Only as arbitrary as the size of the earth and its speed of rotation, and the decision that there should be 360 degrees in a circle.
A knot, by the way, is one nautical mile an hour, which is a highly recursive definition.
But anyway. A mile is a large unit of measure. It's a semi-big distance. A motivated person could walk 23 miles in a day, couldn't they? So the distance isn't insurmountable.
...just where the name "Mile23" comes from.
I modified the image module to spit out a ColorInfo tag for IE.
I want to host some image gallery type stuff here, so eventually there'll be a mod to image.module to determine an image's ICC profile and send it out properly, but for now, it's all sRGB, bay-bee.
More info on color management for the web.
I'm getting a lot of referrers from Google, looking for the Fremont Solstice Parade 2005.
Well, I just wanted to point out that my pictures of the Fremont Solstice Parade 2005 are linked from here. :-)
Also, a separate photo album for the west African dance troupe I was there to 'cover.'
So there ye go.
a voice from above commanded me to make a blog entry, so here goes nothing.
...make a 'blog entry already. :-)
