Deep Zooming, new laptops and feeling craptaculous

My latest science project has been to figure out how to cut up an image for Silverlight's Deep Zoom (see HR Memorabilia) so I can store the create and store the images on the fly, without using Deep Zoom composer. I've had only limited success. I'm missing something in the math, which is in part because it's still poorly documented. Some of my interim zoom steps are the wrong size. I feel like I'm so close, but not quite there.

Apple sent out invites for a new laptop announcement next Tuesday. The common sense part of me says, "You don't need a new laptop." The other side says, "A new laptop will have more RAM and hard drive space, and you can get a bigger screen, all of which are issues with your current 2.5-year-old laptop." It's true that the constraints are annoying, but of course I'm thinking about the stuff I need to buy for the next six months and the crappy economy.

I still feel crappy after last night's respiratory meltdown. I don't quite feel bedridden sick, but I don't feel even remotely good. I got home today and crashed for an hour. It sucks because the brain is willing to engage in a great deal more than the body is.
