The lapcam dies

Exhibit A: the last photo from my laptop webcam. Not as in the last today, but the last one. I opened the screen of the laptop, and the webcam came off in my hand. A piece broke off, a particularly vital plastic piece that holds the USB connection together, and now it’ll no longer work. Dang. Well, it worked for quite a while – good deal for $40. I probably won’t get another one for the time being: I wasn’t that impressed with the performance of the Thinkpad Ultraport Camera. Even though it’s nicely integrated with the top of the screen, it’s just too slow to refresh images.

I’m in Dallas again this week, and I haven’t updated the blog lately. Working a lot, traveling back and forth, and at the end of the day I don’t feel like sitting around on dialup working on the site. Heck, I don’t even feel like going out for a haircut, and as you can see by Exhibit A, I’m in sore need of one.

Cynthia Cooper is returning to the WNBA – as a player! I’m excited for the team, and can’t wait for the season to start. Our season opener is May 22 against Seattle. I’ll be there!
