Erin Go Bragh (or, see you soon)

Even the most uncannable blog animal needs to recharge his batteries once and a while.  I’m terrible about taking time off (clearly), but for once I’m giving it a shot, planning to spend the next week and a half in Ireland with my family.  All this chatter has reduced my stock of blarney to dangerously low levels, so I plan to return to the source for a reload.  Therefore I expect the blog to go mostly, if not completely, dark until mid August.  [It depends in part on connectivity while on the road (in 1984 we were lucky to get hot water, though things are said to have changed dramatically), and in part on my ability to kick the ‘Net habit for a few days.]

In the meantime, you can keep busy visiting some of the blogs from which I so liberally borrow links (not an exhaustive list, so sorry if I’ve omitted anyone):




You also might want to check out this site’s category archives, as I’ve tried to group most posts by topic (e.g. photography, illustration, typography, etc.).  Otherwise, see you on the flipside, and wish me luck capturing a few good images of the old country.

    Great travel to Ireland, I love it. Ireland is one of the most covered country under the ‘internet’ side. It won’t be difficult, for you, to find an internet point and be connected. But holiday are to relax: don’t worry about your blog, it will be there when you will be back.
    [Heh–you’re right: I got WiFi in the hotel and am killing time so that I don’t go to sleep right way & thereby prolonging my jetlag. –J.]

    Sure if you make it to Galway, drop me a line and I’ll show you around.

    Have a great trip! I’ve been to Ireland a couple of times and really loved Dublin :-)
    [It’s great so far, thanks. –J.]

    Enjoy the vacation John!
    May Ireland provide you lots HDRs and Photomerged goodies
    [Thanks! –J.]

    Have a great and safe vacation. Looking forward to pictures of the vacation on your return.
    Your interesting links to design and art will be missed over the next couple of weeks.

    Great list you have made. It will take me days to read most of the info from these places. I have the time, so it is not a problem. Take care and have a good holiday, recharge your batteries ;)

    Hope you had a great trip, John — I just returned from Eire myself. Check out the panoramas I stitched using Pshop CS3’s Photomerge…
    [Very cool, Dave; thanks for the link. I just returned and am looking forward to sharing my pix. –J.]

    No fair! Haha.
    It’s my life DREAM to go to Ireland.
    I know it’s not related, but can you pleeease help me out with something? I feel bad but i’m desperate and I can’t find anything, haha.
    I have Adobe Photoshop CS2 and it’s driving me insane that when I type, the letters don’t show up. You can’t even see the text thing blink.
    It’s driving me insane and this is how I make money (working with photos) and I’m on a deadline.
    Gah! Helllllp.
    :[ I’m soo sorry it’s kinda random.
    [I’m afraid I don’t have any specific suggestions, as I haven’t heard of this happening. The standard suggestion is to reset your preferences (I think that on Windows you hold Shift-Cmd-Alt immediately after launching the app). –J.]

    Nice list of links. Hope you enjoyed your trip to Ireland! Good idea to add the “photoshop” thing at the bottom to prevent spamming.
