I’m using Posterous now because a) I can email anything to email@example.com and it will appear on my posterous blog and b) because it will automatically get posted to Hangout, flickr, twitter, and many other social networking sites.
It really doesn’t come any easier than this!
Thinking about getting a new P&S? Read David Pogue’s New York Times article on the latest offerings from Sony, Canon and Fuji and why they’re so much better than last year’s models.
The bottom line: buy the Sony DSC-WX1.
Just got a new Dell 24″ monitor. Just for research purposes, I tried connecting it to my Dell Mini 9 and then rotating the monitor to portrait mode. A couple of Display Preference clicks later I had this! It’s running the 24″ at 1200 by 1920 pixels.
In 2006 and 2007 I bought five LaCie external disc drives, mostly the d2 or d2 Quandra models with a capacity of 500GB. I also bought two LaCie Mini 500GB drives, the kind that match a mac mini and sit neatly underneath it.
Last week it happened again. This time I ordered a drobo, ripped out the drives from the LaCie d2s and installed them in the drobo. As soon as I got that up and running one of the LaCie mac mini power supplies drives failed! Luckily I’ve now got a large stock of power supplies so I’ve just swapped it over.
Six power supply failures out of seven drives. Not good.
We’ve just heard that Karen’s photo of the Spinnaker Tower has been chosen as the best photo of the Portsmouth (UK) photowalk. It now goes forward as the Portsmouth entry in the WorldWide Photowalk competition! Well done Karen!
