Fracture and Phallic

suffered unicortical fracture of right thumb metacarpal head. Translated in layman terms, there is a minor avulsion of covering of the bone of the right thumb. Hand not in plaster but is supposed to be immobile for 2 weeks

In a totally unrelated question I have been trying to find the correct antonym for the word “Phallic”

Lots of other things are happening about which I just can’t seem to find time enough to write about.

Among notable things – I have decided that I want a DSLR in addition to my Nikon 5700 and I also need some professional grade studio flash lights, budget Rs120000, to fund this I am starting an interesting experiment, sell customised copies of Coppermine. Lets see how it goes

Shifted to using Digikam instead of

mount /mnt/camera/
cp -r /mnt/camera/dcim/* ./

Yes now the camera is in PTP mode, instead of USB mass storage
