Red Kite


Sometimes...

Sometimes, after a wedding, I play around with some of the photographs I've taken. They don't form a coherent set normally so I'm never sure what to do with them. Here's a few from a wedding earlier this year, for example.

By all means, use Dropbox

Go ahead, do it, use Dropbox. That way, you'll find out about the following features:

1. The rest of your internet doesn't work. Nothing. It all slows to a crawl. This despite you believing you have chosen settings that don't hog all your broadband: you haven't and it will.
2. Lack of speed. Despite taking up all your broadband, prepare yourself for multi-hour uploads and downloads. Sure, some of this is because of your crappy broadband speeds in rural wherever, but Dropbox isn't going to help you any in this regard - I don't know how or why they choose to make everything so slow, but that's their gameplan and they're sticking to it.
3. Notifications - they're great. I mean, you have a shared folder or fifty now that you have been using the system for a while - what you need is Dropbox telling you all about every single change to every single folder via annoying notifications on your desktop. Possibly there is a way of turning these off but see 1, above - you might believe you have done so, but... Maybe one day I'll find out.

So yes, give Dropbox a whirl - if you like what you've read, above, you'll love it!

On cholesterol, zibaldone and staying active...

A cholesterol reading of 6.1 which is a bit high so I am going to have to eat a bit more of this sort of thing: 


This weekend, a bank holiday weekend, here:


Hopefully not too much time spent wearing these: 


I've spent a little bit of time with these things already, but more would be good: 


With the above, I make the Zibaldone I have mentioned previously. Below is the last one I "finished" (though they are never really finished as such) - as you can see, it is in the form of a sketchbook that uses a folded concertina effect which, when I opened it out for the first time properly yesterday, I loved: 


So anyway, onward. Here's a few other recent efforts - more later no doubt:
