Whew!

I've just set up a web site at Tripod. Until I can get a decent image hosting service, I'll be sticking some pictures there. In an hour or so, I managed to upload four. They are sort of grainy and washed out and look even worse than they do on my image viewer, but what can one expect from a free site run by Lycos? It's actually better than I expected it to be.I'll get around to uploading more pictures soon, I hope. In the meantime, you finally get to take a look at some of the places I've been writing about. (I know everyone has been so anxious to see them. :-P) So, what are you waiting for? It's only two pages long!

Complaint

Juno seems to be hogging my e-mail. Nothing arrives for hours, then eight or nine pieces will show up all at once. E-mail used to be the one reliable feature of Juno. If that goes, it'll be nothing but a cheap AOL. :-P

Hmmm

I was right. Juno is bogarting my e-mail! I just got 21 messages in one big clump, followed a minute later by two more. Some of them were things I e-mailed to myself from the New York Times yesterday evening. Annoying. About half of them were LJ comments. It will take me a while to get around to answering them.

In the meantime, thanks for all the comments on the pictures. Eventually, I'm going to try uploading a few to Webshots, to see if the quality is any better there than it is at Tripod. I suspect that their poor appearance is more the fault of the point-and-shoot camera (and the photographer) than it is of the web site, though. Also, those four pictures I've posted so far may have been the ones that were on Fuji film. I need to go through my files and find those taken on Kodak, which tends to be a bit more vivid. Still, I won't be posting anything as good as edbook's photographs. And Tripod doesn't allow free users to load pictures on their server to another site, so I can't put them in the journal. You have to go to my tripod page to see them. (Nothing new has been added yet. This link is just for anyone who might have missed the earlier one.)

Thanks.
