i am the typical asian tourist… with a camera for everything… also.. i don’t like being photgraphed.. so… as the defacto photographer… i avoid that .. i am always behind the lens

i used to have my dads old canon a10 film camera.. but film was expensive … so did not get to indulge myself… i could test settings without having to remember what settings i had.. it is all encoded now in the digital pix… and i can generally get the shot i want… although some shots of a sunrise messed up the focus for a little while…

with the digital cameras… i found a medium where i could shoot like crazy… i was averaging 600-1000 frames during recent vacations.  and disk space is all i have to worry about… and used to post all my stuff to a php gallery that i setup on one of my servers…

i finally took the plunge and started to post things to flikr.. here

so… take a gander… i only have a fujifilm s5100 … cause that was the only slr type camera i could afford at the time.

i am still experimenting with it as some of the settings are goofy.. and i hate the delay from snap to capture… that i never had with a film camera..

i am trying to get the go to get a nikon d70 or something.. i just want a camera with better macro functionality and better lens support…

i also pegged some of the pictures on the sidebar … so.. let me know what you think….

more to come

so installed office 2007 last night.. and it is purdy….like mac osx aqua style on windows…

i did an upgrade and it ran fine

this is what it looks like… a little too much baby blue for me… so i switched it to a black motif


the ‘ribbon’ feature is gonna take a little more getting used to… but the app runs fast and a lot of the common tasks are available without having to drill down deep into sub menus and such…

actually looking forward to incorperating both non-beta versions of vista and office 2007 on my production/day to day machine … instead of a machine that is used just for beta junk…

now to see how it handles the day to day tasks that i have gotten used to doing on the old version.. and seeing how much ‘better’ this is really gonna be.


so.. you may have noticed and maybe wondered about the little icons all over the place…

well i am expanding my ‘you guys are dorks’ campaign on those that use all of these bookmarking/tagging/social network type tagging methods to attempt to get friends…

i swear.. it will end in the next day or so.. i am getting tired of it already as well

microsoft launched their long awaited … 5 years in the making… operating system to surplant windows xp… windows vista

i have had the beta running for about a month and was fairly pleased wth the updates and features … and somewhat apprehensive.. because i don’t know what to get…. just another hp/dell/whatever to run windows and linux on… and now .. vista will be preinstalled on machines… or an macbook pro to run leopard (once it is out)/vista/linux … either way.. i will be scraping the default install anyway.. so i guess it does not matter unless i want my mac apps with me too .. hmm

i think i may have to stay on the windows platform for my primary system because of business applications that are not on either linux or max osx.

i am going to wait until at least service pack 1 to install on my current machine… as that will be about the time i get my copy in the mail… (wahoo for beta programs and vendor sppnsored freebies)

i saw bill gates on the daily show with jon stewart and was kind of sad that bill was flustered and they did not show some of the features on the huge screens they have for backdrops… ther ehave been those infamous demos by bill gates when the machines lock up.. so i think he reserves the demos to controlled environments.

are you ready for vista?

there is literally hundreds of bookmarking, tagging, favorites, networking links that some people go crazy with… stupid lemmings… just cause one person thinks tha it is important .. does not mean 150,000 of you need to look at the page too… it is the slashdot’d of today.

you can look a huge list of them here

ok… you may have heard of, digg, furl, techorati, and reddit… all out there to help you connect. remember links. see what is popular.. get search engine optimization on steroids if you play it right… i wanna play. i don’t understand the draw to things like this… but i guess people looking for friends… actually enjoy this stuff… and interacting with people.

so..i am going to start doing this for the next few weeks and see what happens…

well.. there is no plugin or module for that orther than on the some themes for the free (one reason i have thought about going and installing it one of my servers) … well.. i combined all of them together.. and it will take some manual work in html.. because the php is locked down… but i think i got it..

i have to post first.. ot have an idea about what i am going to call the page.. but i will just wait. i then take the permalink url and type in a description and output raw html that has all the stuff in it… it is a very simple bash script that i read in the url and title of the article into.. and then output all of the html .. it is ugly.. cause i don’t want newline after each link.. like it does if you put a newline


echo ”
\<a href\=\”http\:\/\/\?url\=$permalink&title\=$the_title\”\>\<img src\=\”\/files\/2007\/01\/delicious.png\”\>\<\/a\> \<a href\=\”http\:\/\/\/storeIt.jsp\?t\=$permalink\&u\=$the_title\”\>\<img src\=\”\/files\/2007\/01\/furl.gif\”\>\<\/a\> \<a href\=\”http\:\/\/\/index.php\?Action\=Blink\/addblink.php\&Description\=$the_title\&URL\=$permalink\”\>\<img src\=\”\/files\/2007\/01\/blinklist.png\”\>\<\/a\> \<a href\=\”http\:\/\/\/submit\?url\=$permalink\&title\=$the_title\”\>\<img src\=\”\/files\/2007\/01\/reddit.png\”\>\<\/a\> \<a href\=\”http\:\/\/\/cosmos\/search.html\?url\=$permalink\”\>\<img src\=\”\/files\/2007\/01\/technorati1.png\”\>\<\/a\> \<a href\=\”http\:\/\/\/submit\?phase\=2\&URL\=$permalink\”\>\<img src\=\”\/files\/2007\/01\/digg.gif\”\>\<\/a\>
” | perl -pe ‘s/\\//g’

not too bad…. and get something like…

tag ‘dont eat rocky’

<a href=” eat rocky”><img src=””></a&gt; <a href=” eat rocky”><img src=””></a&gt; <a href=” eat rocky&URL=”><img src=””></a&gt; <a href=” eat rocky”><img src=””></a&gt; <a href=””><img src=””></a&gt; <a href=””><img src=””></a&gt;

this.. then in turn becomes…

i upgraded my wordpress… for css edits.. but that does not give me php level access to hardcode this stuff in… so this is what i have to do i guess…

another thing that you can do is use microsoft word or text editor… and do global search and replace for the url and title as well.. using whatever you want ..

so…. i published this post and got the permalink for it… and now… pasting in the new links
