WOW Intense!

This is probably the best film i’ve seen with a message discouraging people from a certain behaviour while driving….

The video was done with local actors by the Gwent police department, to be shown in area schools as part of a 30-minute deterrent movie about “texting while driving.” It’s effective, violent and bloody. That’s probably the point

DO NOT WATCH THIS IF YOU ARE SQUEAMISH

Where do i put my photos?

By | Techie | One Comment

 galleries

I’m struggling with how bets tomanage photos and video i take and where to put them i.e. where to store them on-line. The choices are:

  • My Website
  • Photobucket
  • facebook
  • posterous
  • twitpic

Each of these have their own limitations and conmsequences.

My Website, has the limitations of not being able to upload many large sized photos. This is a major pain as uploadingasimple gallery is always….hicupful. Ideally i’d just like to upload high res images to my site and for them then to be published to other places automtically from there.

Online accounts all have the same issues – Does anyone remembr GeoCities? that was a website ervice that died and went away. I am looking for a solution that will never go away. i.e. I dont wanna use a web based service only to finfd that in 10 yeas the company folds and my images die alongside it.

Posterous is great except that it is still a young company and it wont post images on to MY site – it will only display them on my site. It will push tem to facbook adn flickr and the like but not o my own website.

Hmmmmmm what to do….

I craaaaaaaave a good nights sleep. Where we are camped is right beside the road. We are literally about 10 feet from the road – with a small hedge complete with hedge hogs between us which does nothing for blocking out the sound but the rumble is also a contributing factor.
