Hi Carletta: I got some link issues early today on my SWF url. I miss your comment on my entry :(

You could almost picture the sunset being the moonrise with the moon glowing orange like that.

I updated my "Story Behind the Moon Shot" post with the technical info on my SWF for this week since several people had asked. That post is scheduled for tomorr... uh... what day is it anyway??

It's scheduled for Saturday.

Whenever that is.
