Thing 9 Technology Adding pictures

Maggie just showed Ellen how to add pictures to her post. This is my attempt to do the same thing.

This beautiful illustration is from the
Book of HoursValencia, c. 1460Vellum, 167 leaves, 150 x 100 mm. Chemise binding.Collection of the Koninklijke Bibliotheek, Netherlands.
Thought it would go nicely with my other pictures.

Yeah for technology


Do not try the Tags link on Syndic8. People are obnoxiously "shouting" their tags in the biggest font they can find. I can't even look at them it hurts my eyes. Not to mention it takes forever to scroll through the list. I am going to try other parts of it. The Pings one is cool. It shows you the recently viewed feeds and if you click on one it gives info about the sites and their web address.

A little slow on the uptake

Found the RSS for the OCL webthings challenge so I added it to my bloglines. It would be worse if I never noticed or someone had to point it out to me.

Thing 9 Finding feeds

Hey Jill, so cool of you to drop by. Thanks for your help.

Love the bloglines but the newsfeeds are not my thing. Feeds kind of confusing. Don't really need constant updates on any subject, but I will keep checking topics. Never know what will hit me. Technorati and Topix were both okay. The future thing on Technorati will help I'm sure.

I need to experiment more to find out ways the feeds can help at work. You are better informed for answering reference questions I guess. If nothing else you can describe how they work and help people sign up for them. OCL already has RSS set up and I know customers who love it.

Thing 8 RSS and bloglines

Okay, I had time on the scanner and scannned a picture of the Devil's mascot. Sent an email to the oclwebthings that it's done. Now I don't know how to let them know about my bloglines account. These are are my RSS picks.

Blackfriars Thing 6

originally uploaded by Miss Britt.
Found this awesome photo under the tag light when cruising on Flickr. I think it's so beautiful.


WooHoo! I successfully sent a post from Flickr. I will try to send a picture now. Too cool.

Thing 5 Flickr

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

Thing 7 Scanned picture

I haven't been able to scan a picture yet. I can never get on the pcplus. Hopefully when I cover reference today I'll get a chance. I already have bloglines so that thing is done but I don't want to email the webchallenge team until the scanning is done.

Been addicted to clicking on the next blog link at the top of the page. Just cruising and looking at all the different blogs. Lots of really cool ones out there. So many of them are parent blogs with pictures of their kids. It's nice if your family lives far away to have access to the kids life but I think if I did it I would might viewing private. Anyway, gotta go.

Edited 3/26/08 Okay, scanned a picture of the NJ Devils mascot and sent it to the OCL webthings email account.

This challenge is causing such a commotion. The incompatibility of Flickr and Blogger is actually easier but everyone is so confused. This is only the beginning and everyone is frustrated. It is hard to get a computer to do daily tasks because everyone is working on their challenge.
Very interesting.

7 1/2 Habits

Habit 6 Use technology to your advantage is the habit that works best for me. I like having access to answers at my finger tips. I like that if you do not know how to use an application or a program you can just search for directions to learn how to do things.

Habit 1 is the hardest for me. I never can visualize the end things can go so many ways.
