Reading and posting on LJ improves my mood. I should remember this. I miss you all, even though I see a lot of you on the Facebook and the Twitters.

Getting out to see people improves my mood. I should remember this. I had a FABULOUS time at the State Fair last night. First I took pictures of farm animals and stuff. Then I watched a set & a half of Martin Zellar. It was actually 3/4 of the Gear Daddies because both Nick & Randy were there. Then [livejournal.com profile] 7thstranger & I walked & chatted as I took more pictures and I ate some cheese on a stick.

Finding out that a friend has died does not improve my mood. [livejournal.com profile] gingerpook lost her battle with cancer this morning. You'll be missed Ginger.

An article about Facebook & Photo Storage
and An article about Facebook's fast-growing role in digital photography

I've had people bring in files that were saved off Facebook to try to get prints and the quality is crap.

From one of the articles:
It's also troubling that most users aren't aware that uploading a picture to Facebook -- and then deleting it from your camera -- means you've lost the original image for good. According to a recent survey from market research firm InfoTrends, fewer than a third of people surveyed knew that photos on social-networking sites are stored at a decreased resolution. This is probably because Facebook photos look just fine on a computer screen. But when they are printed, the images cannot be cropped or enlarged without looking blurry.

I see it all the time at work. People will bring their memory card in to get stuff printed, but they won't want the pictures burned to a CD but they also have no idea how to even transfer the pictures from their camera to their computer. They just don't get it. Until you back up the files, that memory card is like your photo negatives. If it's damaged or gets corrupted or you camera gets stolen, you don't have those pictures any more! Those original files are your negatives!
Also, just because a picture looks good on your computer screen, don't assume it will look like that when printed.

For years I've resisted making Moose his own LiveJournal...

But I couldn't resist making him a Facebook profile. So many people were putting up pictures with Moose in them and I wanted to be able to tag him. :)

You can find Moose's profile here: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1350234686

On Facebook where it tells all the new stuff your friends have done "xx joined the group xxxx", "xx and xx are now friends", etc I've noticed some "xx became a fan of xx"
I'm guessing that is a way of following someone famous who has too many friends or who won't friend you back?
Or do you end up following an entirely different profile of the same person?
Is there any reason to become a fan of someone you're already friends with?
Why can't everyone in the world just be on LJ for their online stuff to make my life easier?
Also, my new computer still needs a name. I don't even know if it's a boy or a girl!
