what damage did you manage?
I'll assume you have all been to the Damage site. Been there, added a post.
Bit scared to? Did you have to make up a new name? Did you lie about where you live?
roll on the flu season
Vaccinated, as I am, today actually, by GLLD (Good Looking Lady Doctor), should help stave off the worst of the coming flu season's ills.
Preparing for the dip into Winter. Cold nights. Cold mornings. Westerly wind. Happens every year. Electric blankets. Heaters. Track suit pants.
Weight loss? None. It appears the bike has managed to make me no lighter, but somewhat smaller around the girth. Something we are happy with apparently. I would have been happy with a huge weight loss.
More time on the bike. Much more time on the bike.
Attention this week has been taken up by an upstart of a company that you probably already know about, called Flagr. Flagr, briefly - you can go there yourself and get involved - is a system where you (if you're in the US) SMS in your address, complete with photo, and an icon is allocated to the point along with the photo and whatever comment you sent.
Naturally the SMS thing refuses to work from here in AU, but we got around it by simply finding the address we wanted visually, marking it and uploading an image. Same thing, without the mobile. The day that Google finally maps the place is going to be big.
As is usual we have had to contact them re some stickers, which they are dispatching. Expect to see a Flag sticker decorating a site near you. If you find one go look it up on Flagr - see how it came about.
In the meantime, as once again I seem to be the only one doing it for Brisbane, can any of you shake off your lethargy and get out there and show these blokes what we are made of? (sounds like snoring in the background)
and, while I was there
You now how it happens - you get to a site, you find other things they are using, one thing leads to another... Well, it happens to me anyway - all the time.
Flagr - cruising about it - looking at their blog, noticed a small icon 'send me an Odeo'. Now, what is any sane person going to do?
Of course - now we have an Odeo presence as well. Odeo does for me what I was trying to do for me a while ago - it organizes audio. Simple as that. I can record melodious messages, podcasts, right on the Odeo site. I can link to external audio. I can 'phone in' my podcast - similar to the brilliant AudioBlogger - developed by the very same people in fact, if I have my facts right, and I can embed it on Blogger should I feel the need.
Proof of concept appears below.
I make no apology for the voice - it's the only one I have.
You feel the need to message me using voice follow the sidebar over there ->
down until you see the Odeo button.
