Flip Test

I recently purchased a Flip Mino HD. Overall I’ve been really impressed with the camera. It’s dead simple to use, small enough to fit in your pocket, and provides very good picture quality. The one downside would be image stabilization. Because of the small size and light weight of the camera it can be difficult to keep still while recording. And forget about walking while shooting and getting a still picture. Another small gripe is that the FlipShare software, while allowing simple uploading to YouTube, it doesn’t allow for the uploading of HD video.

Here’s a short clip (50 seconds) of the view from the back of our house. Don’t forget to watch it in HD.

Sure, Why Not

Three months, four posts, and now a re-design…sure, why not. I had great hopes for this site. I dreamt of it being a holding place for all things “me”. The dream is still there, but the thing about dreams…if you don’t get off your bum and do something with them they’ll just remain dreams. And so, I find myself busy with life, not giving to this site what I intended to give.

Then, after looking at it for a couple of months I decided I didn’t like the way it looked. So I set off on a search for a new look. I finally settled on the nice Bloggingstream theme by Woothemes. I’m not finished tweaking things. I still need to clean up the type and make sure some links are working properly. But for the most part things are as they should be.

So why should you care…because I’m ready to make the dream a reality. I’m ready to give to the site what I initially set out to give. If you’re still interested in following along and joining in then I welcome you.

And by the way, just because I’ve not been active here doesn’t mean I’ve not been active at all. Sometimes it’s just easier to post to Tumblr, and of course Twitter.
