The beauty of having your own blog is that one can be both egocentric as well as eccentric as this post will demonstrate. It might be awhile before I can make offerings at the temple of the gods of IT and offer up fervent prayers for the resurrection of my old laptop. I know I ought to have paid heed to the creed of the IT professional; thou shalt make regular back-up copies. Alas I strayed from the path of righteousness. But at least I listened to the wise counsel of one high priest and allowed him to make copies of my data the last time one of laptops quit this mortal coil. Going through the recovered files, I came across this strange little film I made a few years ago. I had clearly meant to edit it down and send it off to someone else. I cannot recall if I ever did.
