Nathan Hoad's How to: Meld for Git diffs almost worked for me. Two minor things got in the way. First you have to have a change in the selected file or git diff does noting. There is no error message, just nothing happens. It took me a minute to figure out. Sure seems obvious, but I tripped over it. Second, you have to set the execute permission on the python file. The error message made this obvious, still worth noting.

One of the over 1700 photos I have to go through from the wedding. People think digital photography is instant, and it can be. Most of the time it involves selecting then developing a photo out of dozens of possibilities. As work through the photos I'll be posting a number of them to Laurier and Andrea's Wedding set on flickr. I'll give Laurier and Andrea a DVD with a wider selection of photos.
Wish I could say I planned the above shot, but it was a happy accident :)

As I was walking around Parliament Hill this afternoon there was one woman trying to take a jump shot of her friend. After a few attempts, I asked her if she had gotten the shot. She said no. I explained about burst mode that shoots multiple shots in rapid succession. The only way to time a jump shot is not to time it. Alas we couldn't find a burst mode on her point n shoot. So I offered to take the shot and would give them my card so they could email me. They we quite excited by this offer. So I did the above shot and one with more of the Library.
