An interesting introduction to how Facebook works

28 02 2014

Sadly, Facebook is not all about sharing with everybody…  It shares selectively and poorly Sad smile


hmmm…. Bad Facebook Smile with tongue out

Catching up on some Photo Processing on a Wet Sunday

10 04 2011

It’s a wet, cool day out today, so I caught up on some of my birds from a couple of weeks ago.  I haven’t had a chance to do much work on them recently with a short trip to Cleveland in the middle and a website that I’m supposed to have done for somebody 😦

Well, here are the birds from a couple of weeks ago… all nicely geotagged with the new BT-Q1000XT (Fun little device)

What the HELL is some Project Manager at MS thinking????

2 05 2008

Count me as NOT impressed!

I’ve talked about Foldershare before and mentioned how good it is.

That just changed.   MS have forced an "upgrade" to a new version.  Win2K NOT supported 😦

Well shucks – great way to kill off a product guys.

There is so little code that should require XP only… Come on, this is ridiculous.

Apparently I’ve got to go look into some nice little open source tool called Unison

New Version of Foldershare!

25 03 2008

For those of you that have been using the great File sync/sharing app called Foldershare, the boys at previously named ByteTaxi (now part of MS) have put out a new version finally!

If you are using any older version, you should get the new one.  It apparently is better and smoother than the (very) old version.

Get your New Version of Foldershare!

MS Fixed, then broke and then fixed the "Click To Activate"

14 02 2008

A while back, MS announced that they had “made a deal with the devil” and have an agreement to license the stupid Eolas patent which will allow us to load pages and NOT have to “Click here to activate”.

They implemented it  Life was good.  No more extra clicks just to get a page to load.

This stopped working with the Black Tuesday updates that came down the pipe this month 😦

Now… they’ve FIXED it again!!!

I’m starting to miss the easier, earlier days of the Internets.

For those that don’t want to read all the extra and just get on with it…. just GO HERE

    9. Duracell batteries – 36 for $12.50

    New Year’s Day:

    1. 30 DVD+R Dual Layer $24 @ Future Shop

    Good times!  The Portland trip was crazy and fun, but a LOT of driving.  With gas at the equivalent of $0.75/L it didn’t seem quite so bad – particularly with my truck just LOVING highway driving compared to city.  We drove approximately 1300 km on 2 tanks of gas – about $140.  Having the TomTom One XL GPS was a life saver.  We were able to find our hotel, the outlet mall, and REI in Portland and Seattle without really having any idea which streets took us where.  The only problems came when we didn’t have a correct street or address for a location.  We found that the POI interface was a bit difficult to navigate, but I think we’ll find it easier with more use.  Did I miss having street names pronounced for our directions?  No.  If  I DID miss a street turn (which happened once or twice when streets were kind of crazy in Seattle) it just rerouted me.  No problems.

    My Thanks to the gang that had us along:  Brad, Greg, Dave and the crew… it was a blast!

    Happy New Year to all!


    30 11 2007  – This site is great!   I can’t stay away.  I was introduced to it via my photoblog and now it looks like we’re all using it (a bit too much it might seem.  The site is down as I post this 😦 ).

    Here are a couple of the shots I’ve “magged”:
