the bob loblaw law blog

I have made many grievous errors in the life of this blog, but one kind stands out particularly...ummm...brightly. Why hasn't somebody pointed this out to me before? That all my photographs I post are washed out. Too bright. Shit. Pure shit.

I purchased a new laptop on Saturday (and an IPOD). It's monitor is bright. Crystal clear. And when I look at my pictures on that computer, they appear to be washed out. I've had some suspicion that my desktop monitor is dark (it's 5 years old and was a discount, refurb to begin with), but the contrast between the two monitors is striking.

I apologize for any and all seared retinas and I will attempt to edit all new photographs using my new laptop.

The GIGANTIC FUCKING SUMMER EXTRAVAGANZA begins tomorrow, 6:30am. Prepare for an onslaught of blogging so fierce and varied it will confuse you.

You selfish son of a bitch! You told me you couldn't pay me back because your nephew was in the hospital and now you're going to an ffffing casino? No way man, no fffing way. If I don't see you and my money by Thursday, I'm gonna put a 1/4 inch drill bit through your god damned fffing knee.
I mean jesus dude, first I agree to finance your sex tourism escapade because you tell me your dying of bone cancer -- not true -- and then you refuse to pay back the $1,400 I loaned so you could get back at that carnie who ripped you off. This has been one hell of a month.
Fair warning Rank, I'm looking for you.

Daddy: I'm not going to make it to French Lick. For one thing, I'm going to be out of town, but for another, "the casino at French Lick" sounds like some place I want to avoid at all costs. I'm out of Indiana for pretty much the whole summer. Thank god.

Pell: your powers of remembering names from high school are slipping. At least your ability to spell them correctly (this is no surprise). But nice posts anyway.

If you bought a Mac the pictures may appear differently. Windows and Macintosh operating systems use different gamma settings (1.8 vs. 2.1) so there will be a clear difference in brightness and contrast.

However, if you bought the same OS as your last machine, then your old monitor was just crap. ;)
