Hi folks! Welcome to my feeble attempt to keep a blog alive. It’s pretty guaranteed that I’ll be posting fairly rarely - mostly, to let those who seem to have given up on mailing lists know that I’m still alive…

Posting will be faciliated somewhat by my latest gadget - a Nokia N95, quite a nice phone, apart from an atrocious battery life, but it makes photo-blogging amazingly easy. The process is:

  • I take a photo with the phone’s camera - it has 5 megapixels in theory; although nowhere near the quality of a real 5 megapixel camera, it is plenty for displaying on a web page.
  • I select “send by e-mail” and send to a flickr e-mail address
  • Next time I connect to my 3 mail, the photo is sent for free - no nasty bandwidth charges!
  • Flickr grabs the mail, loads the photo, and sends a blog post like this one to my blog!

Of course to make a proper message like this, I have to go in and edit by hand - but for basic photo-blogging, it couldn’t be simpler.
