I've got a new website for my images.

Right now I've got six images up, but as I take more, I'll post them to the gallery. Also, I've got a DeviantArt page (user EbooksAsArt) where you can actually *purchase* prints, fine art prints, magnets, mouse pads, mugs, cards and puzzles of four of my images.

Feel free to stop on by and check out my artwork.

Yes, I've now sold my Canon XTi equipment and am now exclusively shooting with my Nikon D90. I'm loving it!

Not much has been happening with the Cybook.

Yep. We've been waiting and waiting for a firmware update for the Cybook Gen3 and it hasn't appeared yet! Yes, on July 4th, 2009, if an owner were willing *and able to* go to Paris for Bookeen's 'demonstration' of their new 5" ebook reader, such a special and *blessed* user could get the latest firmware. The rest of the Cybook owners out there got to suck dirty ditch water. At the time of the 'demonstration', Bookeen promised the release of the Cybook firmware update "soon".

Well, it's been 21 days and there's not *ONE* sign of an impending release. Ha!

I'm getting truly sick and tired of Bookeen's endless delays.
