I'm sure there are all sorts of things that are caddywampus on the site so please bear with me. I retooled the 'on the beatbox' section and added an 'on the side' section for quick links and stuff that might not necessitate a whole blog post. As always, this is all done using Blogger. The only thing that has stayed the same are my recently redesigned comments. Since I switched the physical server where shellen.com is held, I can now use the comment count feature. Yay. Anyway, now that there is no going back. What do you think?

The legislation approved in Congress does not establish specific royalty rates for webcasters. Instead, it authorizes the music industry's principal royalty collector, SoundExchange, to negotiate binding royalty contracts with small webcasters on behalf of all artists and record labels.from TechNews.com
Excellent news for small webcasters like colleges and independent websites! Thanks to Adina Levin for the good news.

I took this picture with my old Nikon Coolpix 800 (I have an 885 model now). The original photo looked pretty good but was a little bit cold and grey. That was before I found the 'Amelie Effect Action' plug-in for Photoshop 7. Now it looks like a scene from 'Amelie'. Thanks to Dawn over at a.lifeuncommon.org for making this! I'm also happy to report that it works in Photoshop 6.0 as well.

It did the trick, perhaps a bit too well. The SF Chronicle reports:
'The San Francisco elections office stayed true to its haywire history Tuesday when as many as 100 polling places ran out of ballots, leaving hundreds of irate residents unable to vote.'Bummer. However, I am happy to report that although it was a packed house on my side of the Bay, we did not run out of electronic balloting terminals.
