This is the first image that I tested my scanner with—it was the first flat, coloured item that I found. It’s my address book that I’ve had since 1999, on the cover of which I drew a picture of a koi carp, based on a simple painting that I saw on the bottom of a Chinese noodle bowl.
I was feeling burned-out today. In fact, I’ve been feeling like that all week, after expending a prodigious amount of effort on the search engine I’ve been developing. Around 3 pm, I started a long spidering job on the server, and decided to take the rest of the afternoon off to recuperate.
