Man, am I pissed.
I'm copying the pictures I took yesterday off the digital camera:
[spc]marvin:/Volumes/NO NAME/DCIM/100OLYMP>scp * \

pictures copied okay):
[spc]marvin:/Volumes/NO NAME/DCIM/100OLYMP>delete *

Only the copy didn't work out as expected (okay, who's bright idea was to
include semicolons in Mac OS-X mounted volumes? Especially for those of us

picture on the camera, which was of the cheeseburger I had yesterday after the movie (should have used

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

links to that entry only. The format for the links are

so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
