New Year's Day 2011 Notes

Bubbling water in northeast corner rock garden

Squidoo glitches: Squidoo's new topic scheme does not match with many of my lenses. Worse, the "My Lense" module I use to build themed lensographies is not working at all for me with the new topics since the changeover, though it does function so-so when I imput "Any topic" plus a tag, and that is how I usually use it (fortunately) . I know this will be fixed soon, and such curves get thrown often on the Net. 

The upside: By updating all at once on the dashboard, I received 500 points and all my lenses suddenly showed a 12/30 or later "last published" date. So, I am all caught up suddenly, for the New Year -- though none of my lenses had been published since mid-December anyway.

Back to bugs: Yesterday and today, annoyingly, the Squidoo dashboard over and over again invites me to re-categorize lenses I already switched to the new topic scheme. I have submitted reports, of course. 

Camera testing: I began playing with the new Fujifilm FinePix J40 (donated by JMM). The rock-garden pic above is one of the first. Tortoise Cat helped me snap a second batch.

Cloud life begins: I'm uploading then deleting from now on!

Tortoise Cat: My colleague is comfortable preoccupying herself with cat-naps and winged dreams.
