Yesterday morning I built a tool that automatically crops and rotates a 
batch of snapshots. The photos are of all the pages of a recipe book I 
created in 1993, for which I no longer have the source files. I shot the 
book with my phone using a photo box like this one 

This afternoon I plan to make some small changes to a LC-based 
client-server business system that should dramatically reduce the amount 
of LAN traffic it creates.
