    Well, we're back at it. We had the studio presentations yesterday, ballots were due at 3pm, and today the studio assignments are posted at 1:30pm. Exciting, yes?

    And now, here is a picture of what it's like to ride the bus to school in the morning:

    On the bus in Vancouver!

    Also, I bought myself a digital camera over Christmas holidays. Since I didn't have one before, it made blog posts quite a task. Life will be much easier now.

    I love you all. Work hard this term, all my friends in academia, industry and other endeavours.

      im still waiting for the xmas sales which would start this weekend to buy my new digital camera....any suggestion???, i want to buy something cheap around the 3 megapixels, and not go over 200 euros (like 300 dllrs???, i have no idea how much dllrs r now for euros, and i dont know also how much canadian dllrs for one euro), anyway here they wait for the sale until jan 6 (which is the "reyes" holiday)....bests to Canada ;-)

      I just bought a 5 mgapixel cannon powershot A95 at for 290 US Dollars. You should check it out. If its too much, the powershot A75 is 3 megapixels and is running about $175 dollars.

      You should be able to get up to 5 megapixel for about $300 USD, as per Brian's post. Check for reviews and such. That site is a lifesaver. My camera is an Olympus C-8080. I got it for $900 CAN brand new: 8 megapixels, and a 28-140mm SLR equivalent lens. It's replacing my film SLR, which is a Canon EOS A2, in case anyone's interested in buying it...

      The Vancouver transit system, although perhaps creepy, is wonderful. I live in a good location, so I take transit everywhere...

      I bought at Sony DSC-P120 (P100 but black with case and extra battery) it 5.1 megapixel, with a Carl Zeiss lens. Great little camera, compact and rather stylish, I haven't used it much yet, but very impressed with it so far. I love sony products, they always seem to know what they're doing.

      I bought it from Amazon for £210 GBP, sorry I haven't got a clue what it retails for in the US or Canada. But I recommend it wholeheartedly.

      i agree david. vancouver has one of the best mass transit sytems that i've experienced.
