Monday Monologue #3

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • Once it finally arrived, the new Eye-Fi memory card has been problem free (which is to be expected.) It’s a good idea; but I think that we’ll make sure our next camera has built in wireless. We don’t use any of Eye-Fi’s online features; yet we still have to have an Internet connection to set up/configure the card. Why does it need to get registered before it can be used anyway?
  • I ran a road race on Saturday. It was cold so I didn’t run as fast as I could have; but I was still pleased with my finish time. I like to run a race for time occasionally so I can see how I’m doing as compared to a few years ago. So far, the ravages of old age haven’t caught up to me.
  • I lent a co-worker a USB drive last week so they could transfer some photographs from one computer to another and they still haven’t given it back. I’m starting to get annoyed. How hard is it to drag and drop? Especially since they had all weekend (in addition to several days through the week). It was a loan and not a gift. If they wanted to keep it forever, they should have just bought their own.
  • I didn’t realize it until today; but the “Notify me of follow-up comments via e-mail” check box was missing from the comment form. I’m not sure how I overlooked it. Anyway, it’s fixed now.

  1. I never had to register my memory card (but it doesn’t have any online features).
    I’m pleased I can still keep up with my 14-year-old daughter in most things 😀

    • Kazi: That’s a quirk of Eye-Fi cards. The wireless capability is way cool. If I’m someplace with a fast Wi-Fi connection, I can even set up my cameras to upload to my phone. But it shouldn’t require you to have to log into their servers to make configuration changes. The next camera I get is going to do wireless uploads natively and cut them out of the loop.
