A few photos at

I didn't want to take the machine to pieces just for photos, but
next time I have cards out I'll photo most of them.

I'm going to clean the heads on the disk again soon (tonight or
tomorrow) so I'll photograph that apart. I'll drag out the
photoflood lamp if I didn't bang its filament to death.

My digital camera seems to be losing focus, it bother me, because
I absolutely love this camera. It's a FujiFilm M2700. A "pocket"
camera, 2.3Mpixel, but it was quite popular with pros as a
"spotting" camera. I honestly don't know what battery life is;
it's weeks-to-months (only good for a couple of weeks now; still
the original battery). Bought it in 1998 for nearly $700. Always
took great photos, but it's deteriorating, boo hoo. Scratched up,
missing screws, etc.

I know SLRs are better, but I'll never carry them, they become
asshole magnets, get stolen, banged up, left at home, etc. I far
prefer a high-quality "pocket" style, I carry it with my literally
every day and use it all the time.

Or maybe it's just the low light in my lab; taken outside
seems OK. It bothers me.
