Friday Creature

Yeah, I didn't post a Wordless Wednesday this week, but I've been migrating to a new computer and I don't have any of my photos on the new digs yet. But I went to some extra effort to bring you this Friday Creature -- because the weather has turned very nice all of a sudden (hence the sunny scene) and because I finally broke down and shaved the dog this past week (hence the clipped version of the dog from last summer, right after we had that awful hackberry tree cut down). We're in transition, folks, and warmer weather is right around the corner!!

And there are more creatures on the ark for your consumption. Have a great weekend, everyone!!!

Wow, that was one big tree! So, giving up the Mac completely or just getting ready to travel?

Neither, really. I'm going to try my best to keep everything in the cloud (and backed up), but so far, most of my pictures are still just on the mac. Hopefully I'll get the rest of them up soon, so I can access them from wherever. That way it won't matter if I'm on the mac or the netbook.

I'm considering moving to the cloud, too. I'm getting tired of having stuff all over the place and then having to sync it all. What do you use? Feel free to write an actual blog post :-) or point me to one you've written; I know you've mentioned this before.

Well, once I finally finish with the photos, the blog's archives will be the next big project -- that's been in the queue since last summer and not done yet, so even if I have written about it at some point, I wouldn't necessarily be able to point to a post. ;-P So much catching up to do...

But anyway, I'm just going all in on google, for simplicity's sake if nothing else, but I do like the job they're doing with their apps. I'm storing the photos on picasa, and a lot of other stuff on google docs. I also use their bookmarks, rss feed reader, calendar, and (of course) blogger. I like the way the different apps integrate and also the fact that features are constantly being added and updated.

It's not perfect, but it's quick and easy. Oh, and cheap -- only $20/year for 80 gigs. I also have backups of the really important stuff (on an external hard drive and on DVDs), so if google ever completely flakes out on me, I'll have copies of a few things.
