Hey Vance,
I know it's too cold now, but PM me if you get into central Colorado- Got a little guest cabin in Salida you're welcome to use. Dinner and a beer for good stories. Cabin even has heat if you're here when it's cold!

Vance, what kind of memory does you camera use?
Mine uses compact flash, I'm thinking of buying a CF reader w/ USB, this way I'll rarely worry about hooking up the camera to any computer, just plug in the reader via USB, it could work a lot smoother on other's machines.
CF reader/writers can be found $10-20... FYI...

Shoot...I can't remember what it is called, but i know it has a regular memory card (about an inch long by 3/4 inches) and then something called a "duo" stick that you can ad. It came with a 32mb stick and I bought another 128mb stick, so I can take about 65 pictures at the highest resolution (4 mega pixels)

I was planning on just doing some written updates once or twice per week and then posting links to my smugmug account when I can find a friend on the way who will let me load the pics. My camera came with "camera driver software" that has to be loaded onto a machine to grab the pictures. I could not figure out how to open the camera from IE like you mentioned. If there is a device where I could just stick the memory card into... and USB to a Kinkos machine without downloading software...that would be great!

I am just waiting to get paid on the 4th of the month and was going to go to Frys and have them help me out if I don't figure it out here first. Your idea sounds great. I'll try and remember to look at the name of the stick when I go home. (back and forth to the library and home! BRAIN DAMAGE!)

AAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! !1

Dude! You rule! You should work at Frys. I'll just get one and I should be able to use Kinkos everywhere. (most librarys don't have the boxes where you can see them, just the screens, keyboards and mice) Mice? hahahaha

Anyway...problem solved. I will just quickly use kinkos to upload to smugmug and then go to the libraries to do the updates.

Thanks!

PS...I use gerbils for tampons.

OK...here is my first attempt at linking from my smugmug account with a few pictures...here goes:

Tekillya_John came over last night and bought up the last of my stuff and had a beer with me (in his own chair as I have none) :-)


Here is said "last of stuff" he bought the 2 dart boards and TKC 80s.



Now it's just me and the bike left. This is all packed up save the water proof rafting bag with spare clothes, large tarp and misc. stuff...Almost out of here!

Jeeeez...is it time to leave yet?

More after Mexico...thanks to all for the offers!

Vance

Smugmug is up...

http://vanceforster.smugmug.com/

Looks like some places identify my camera as a hard drive through IE, but still won't let me upload pictures in the "drag and drop" feature of smugmug. (or maybe it's just down? there is a little red X in the upper left of the drag and drop box...) Firewall issues? Who knows... I shoulda bought a laptop...but that would have put me out of the loop for Baja...and I don't want to miss that.

The idea that is reflected in that photo is just really cool.

Look me up when you come thru Denver, beer and dinner and a couch to sleep on is on me.

Yo, big man. Try the "Standard Upload" feature instead of the "Drag and Drop".
If they have the security set correctly the "Drag n Drop" won't work as it requires ActiveX (iirc).

Looks like the girls got those baby blues, eh?

You gonna let us thow a bon voyagee lunch at Alices?

What's your ETD?

Hey man! Well, me and Tekillya_John are taking off for Mexico on the 16th and meeting up with the Lone Rider crew in Mulege on the 17th. Bubba is thinking of going as well, and Dick wants to meet us that morning (the 16th) for breakfast in Los Gatos (would love it if you showed up for that...) No solid plans yet. All of the other days, I am up for anything. I'm just sleeping in my empty apartment with my camp stuff.

I'll email you...
