Stare Into Space

What? You’re still here?

Too long, man.  Too long. Seriously though.  It has been too long.  In my defence, I’ll simply say that I’ve been busy/lazy.  Only one of these is a half-lie. It’s the Twitter, you see.

Instead I do other things.  I drink lots of tea.  I stare out of the window for […]

Filckr Vs. Picasa

The death knell has sounded for flickr. Its uploader for Mac was buggy – editing anything already typed in the text fields before an upload caused it to go mental and, after every upload, it made me login again.  It limited me to 100M a month, which isn’t too bad on an ongoing basis but […]
