Christmas Loot

Written By: Gary on December 25, 2004 No Comment

Merry Christmas! We’ll ignore the whole spirit and joy thing for now and just talk about the important stuff: What did I get!!!

I got the Cartographica Extraordinaire: The Historical Map Transformed which is a huge book about maps and the evolution of them. I like maps* and I saw these guys on the The Screen Savers talking about maps and the book and they way they superimpose images and scan and do stuff to make old maps better…

I got shirts and ties and gift certificates and something from my amazon wishlist that didn’t arrive yet (but I don’t know what it is) and candy and wine and a 512MB(!) thumb drive and that’s all I can think of for now.


* I’ve always liked maps. Maps and luggage. Digital maps, fold-up maps, road maops, etc. Always on the quest for the perfect map! For the luggage thing, I’m always looking for travel bags, backpacks, laptop cases, anything with lots of pockets to store all my junk and gizmos and stuff.
