Free Parking and Consequence

Free Parking and Consequence

Free Park­ing and Con­se­quence by stechico.

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.”

Here’s what Juan have to say about it:

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.

Flickr Yahoos!

Signin to Flickr using Yahoo account

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 =)
