The week so far

It's been a rich, wonderful, tasty touristic week.

Lunch with ladymoonray. A walk to see the telectroscope. Dinner at Baltic with easterbunny, aca, haggisthesecond, and naxos. Lunch with an antiquarian bookseller and pittenweem. Productive grading sessions. The striking Chapman Brothers exhibit at the White Cube gallery with fjm and chilperic. A mildly disappointing William Curley Dessert Bar trip (due to ill and thus absent chef). Tortellini with a rich variety of cheeses. A visit to the closed Thames Barrier with easterbunny and ebonyrae in the most perfect of weather. A visit to the Sarre Windmill. An impromptu trip to see the lovely Herne Windmill. A walk beachside in the declined resort town of Herne Bay. Pork, pineapple, onion, and a spicy Indonesian Redang sauce, all stewed. Lunch at the local Gordon Ramsay pub with houseguest. Tomorrow's the BSFA's AGM.

Our visiting pittenweem left us this afternoon for futher travels.

I have hundreds of photos and need to clear more files off of my hard drive in order to upload them, a recently developed problem. It's not possible to have a hard drive which is too large.

I remember having that hard drive problem. v. frustrating. Now I have an external that I use for everything I'm not currently using. It also made it really easy when I got a new laptop :o)

Methinks a flickr account where you can upload lots of stuff and people can leave comments would be a really good idea. (hint hint)

We're pricing servers with backup hard drives. It's really what we need in our lives as a more versatile and redundant backup solution.

I'll consider a flickr account - does it do automatic photo resizing? That's one of the things which hampers me uploading photos. When I take them, they're a couple of meg, but for posting online, I like them to be small and speedy to load so manually resize everything which will be uploaded right now.

Flickr does do automatic resizing.
If you create a free account and let me know it is then I'll add you as a contact. Then you'll see lots of extra options to do with my pictures - including all the sizes of photo it produces: small, medium, large, _original_.
