Talk about dedication from Ludwig Gatzke, a collection of “Web 2.0″ startups/companies. It’s just amazing to see how a couple of companies made it through the dot-com bubble burst.
Meanwhile, while sifting through the vibrant collection, I was ported over to PXN8.
I tried it out a bit, seems like cool web-based editing software. It can be bought for a one-time fee of $795.1 This might be useful to those just needing something right-away and not wanting to put the man-hours into it. Because at the end, it’ll probably cost either the same or even more if you would’ve just bought it.
Anyways, check it out. It’s made by an Ireland-based company called Sxoop. Some function to note would be their “fun effects” which include: Lomo, Filter, Round, Interlace, Blur and Snow.
So last Friday, I had the opportunity to take PTO (Personal Time Off) from work to go do some checkups and stuff. After doing those, I then went to the city to find me a bag for my new toy. One of those shops I went to was Adolph Gasser’s.
I wonder, are you considered a customer if you don’t buy anything in the store? From the definition of what a customer is (one that buys goods or services), it seems that you have to do “business” with the store or vendor. I guess if you don’t, you’re just a waste of “space.”
juan (12:59:30 AM): so by your definition if i park in a “parking for customers only” space, I am by law of the sign obligated to buy something
me (1:01:08 AM): i guess
juan (1:02:31 AM): so if you dont buy anything, they can tow you
juan (1:02:45 AM): that’s F’d up
…and there you have it folks, great words from a great man.
Stewart Butterfield, one of the smart people from Flickr, announced early this morning that you can now sign-in and have the option to integrate your Yahoo! account with Flickr. This is great stuff for those with Yahoo! accounts in that they don’t have to remember another login, for those that do that kind of stuff anyways. The only downside, a temporary one, was that for people using third-party Flickr API-based programs (like myself) have to wait for the developers to update them with the new authentication API.
The program that I use a lot would have to be by Jon Gilkison called FlickrImportr. I use it to do my uploads and set management. I would say that its 10x better than Flickr’s own Uploadr tool, at the moment.
Meanwhile, as I keep saying, if you blog and recently start taking more and more pics with your digital camera (point-and-shoot, phone and/or dSLR)… then Flickr is the way to go. Not to mention the great community that it has. If you ain’t sold, then check out the quality of pics Flickr photographers take via the Explore page.
Anyways, good morning and go Flickr!
PS. I wonder if Flickr would be adding that damn exclamation mark like Yahoo!‘s. Looking at it, it’ll be hard to be grammatically correct when you write about Flickr, specifically when you describe something from Flickr like Flickr!‘s website… its just plain wrong but so right with the current news. I need to wake up. Sorry for the nonsense early in the morning. Good times =)
You guys and gals ever wonder who created that cool Blink 182 album cover for Enema of the State? The creator apparently is a Flickr user, who goes by obie27. Check out his Music set to see other great pics of rock bands/artist(s).
