Re: Hardrock pictures.
- Boy, you pace someone to a glorious crash and burn
mile 90 DNF at Massanutten and this is the thanks
you get!(Have you ever seen a "question mark" run?
The Troubadour's back was so wrenched, that's
*exactly* what he looked like at that point...of
course, being the ace pacer I am, I was still beating
him like a rented mule and telling him how great he
was doing). Limmicker, when you are ready to get
rid of that MMT "visitors rock", let me know!
Ok, so, I've corrected the units on my rate of climb
in the photo captions.(in an earlier caption, I
claimed to be climbing at 2100ft/min, yowsa!)
So to answer, why snapfish? I don't particularly
care for the whole registration thing at any web
site but the clever person can complete all that
without giving away any real direct information
including using a disposable/throwaway email address.
You *did* use a throwaway, didn't you Rich?!?!
See, I'm still in the dark ages with my camera.
Alot of the kids here won't remember these
contraptions but once upon a time, you had to actually
load these little film canisters into a camera, the
film was exposed and then you had it chemically
processed to reveal the image. I still use one of
those. So, for 5 bucks(which includes the mailing
to and from), I can send snapfish my film,
they will process it, return the negatives and a
single set of prints *and* scan the images into my
account so that I can then organize them, caption them
and share them via the web if I want. NFI in
snapfish but if you're still in the dark ages like
me, the bang for the buck for what you get isn't bad.
It's actually funny when I take a picture of my nieces
and then they run up to me wanting to see the picture
on the back of the camera. I have to explain to them
that the pictures are "stuck" inside the camera and
it takes awhile to "get them out" so they'll have to
wait until next time to actually see the picture.
This disappoints and baffles them.
