The Dog Days of Summer

We made it through July, spooky interpretations of Nostradamus aside (though some "true believers" claim we need to get to October before we're really out of the woods) But I digress! We've got another month of new creative work and a PalmPilot related ramble from yours truly. So get to reading, and enjoy the summer while it lasts-

(For the record, this issue marks 2 full years of the new Blender Digest format, with the first version of the Love Blender itself dating all the way back to late 1993...)

as always: read love & enjoy,

Kirk, Blender-Keeper
