I had been thinking about getting a new camera for awhile, because I bought my Coolpix 995 back in like 2000 or something and it’s getting a little tired. But I thought I might step up to an SLR this time, and I figured now would be a good time to get one so I would have it when I go to Berlin next month.
I’m always very impressed with César’s photos, so I bought a Nikon D200 like he has. It just arrived yesterday, and I started toying around with it some. I’m not posting any photos today though, because I haven’t taken any good ones yet. Hopefully I’ll get plenty of good photos in Berlin at the GTK Hackfest though.

Today I committed a patch to rework modal windows on Win32. This fixes #455627 and #511111. Ever vigilant, Brad quickly caught one very important thing that I missed, so I filed and fixed #514643.
I also finally took the time to get the gtk-2-10 branch caught up with all the latest Win32 patches, since Medsphere is using 2.10 still. I merged in patches for #505928, #506769, #504984, #144269 (again), #164537, #371036, and #405178.
There seems to be a lot of interest right now in improving GTK on Windows. There’s now a new wiki page devoted to it, and #win32 on IRC. Very exciting!
