I have half the X chromosomes, half the swim suit, less than half the good looks, and about twice the years of the runner.

I'm starting to get things sorted with the camera, and iPhoto. Etiainen's right; it is fun. There are settings for all sorts of things, but I reckon I'll eventually be going back to something with more manual options, and an optical viewfinder.

Actually, it's not my first digital experience. That was back in the 1990s, when digital cameras first came on the market. Much of the information was in English, and Thai friends wanted one to use instead of having to scan photos to catalogue the products they were selling. The one we bought had a resolution of about 1 megapixel. I installed the software, and played around a bit with the pictures with Photoshop, then left their staff to get on with it.

So there I was, among the early adopters of e-marketing, but that was it for me with digital photography until the past week.

Some weekend soon, once the weather settles, I have in mind a bit of a motorcycle jaunt, which I will document and post. May and early June can be quite rough as the monsoon kicks in. Soon it should get better for a couple of months.

Morning Ride map test

See if this works

Mission Hospital-Phuket to Mission Hospital-Phuket - Google Maps


Edit: I wanted the map, not the link...... I'll have to try again

You could take a screen shot, then upload that to the host of your choice.

(ctrl +alt + print screen, then paste into paint and save as... for those that don't know that little trick)

Or you could just leave it as a link. That way we can zoom in to street level and see how fun your ride really is

Thanks for the screen shot idea. I'm Mac (and a still learning tech agnostic, not a geek) so the way its done will be a bit different.

A heap of work that has just come in will be keeping me busy this weekend, but by way of diversion I hope to start to pull together the components of a ride report, which I will post in due course. It won't be the epic of the likes of Aargee. It is just a short dawn ride, but I still want to make a decent report of it.

Note to admin: Trip Reports do come up in "today's posts", but don't seem to appear in "active topics".

Good info, etiainen.
I've always used Grab, but that might be easier. Plus, it saves as a png, so more portable from the start.

Yeah, it's simple and easy to do. It's how I take screens of my rides and whatever else I need screens of(teachers used to ask for screens of running programs for hw assignments).

Thanks, etiainen, you've just taught an old dog a new trick.

Now to knock out that trip report as a diversion in between marking batches of assignments over the next little while.
