I have one of those scanners that came with the computer package. Tried reading manual ... HA! ... so far have gotten one picture into the computer ... no idea how to send a photo onward. Ohhh, maybe my cyber cafe ???? !!!
And if I have success and it scares you to death , well, you asked, nay, begged for it.

Just as an aside, a friend recently returned from a trip to Italy where he asked about availability of Internet Cafes only to discover from an Italian that in Italy the public access places are called Internet Points ... in case you're travelling.

Luddite Unite!-- Actually getting a digital pix is not all that hard--or expensive.

Take a picture with your favorite camera (a disposable, a 35 mm single lens, a PHD camera (push here dummy--automatic) using you favorite film (the ones on sale!) and then take them to any reasonable place-- your local photo shop, Costco, Kmart, Walmart..

and for an extra $5 (US) get the entire roll on Disks! (usually 2 floppys for a roll of 24--) for $10 you can get a CD cut-- but i usually find i don't really want to save all of the photos--only about half-- so why pay more? Its easier to edit floppies.

Each floppy come with a "Kodak Photo viewer" so you can see "thumbnails" (small images that load super fast-) and then click on the thumbnail for a full size image.

the kodak disk images (JPEG's) are easy to use-- and you just "Mail" them like any other attachment--(use the Paperclip icon... look on A: (your floppy..) and your on your way!

the same images can be used for "wallpaper" or screen saver images...

the real trick is to be in front of the camera!

Max's new web site has a "mail to" option.. you can mail your photo to him...

If you need more detail directions--send me a PM (meanwhile, i have spend all my time behind the camera-- so I don't have any ready images.. but I bet Max could find one.. (hint-- there are image of me posted elsewhere on the net--not my doing.. I did mention my son was a webmaster didn't i? and he is not the only one who has plastered my face in cyber space.-- really does any one need that?)

my other obsession

Great site, Max! My Netscape gets it fine! Curious how often the images we create through the personalities we sense through the interaction of words seem to resemble reality quite closely in most cases..."in most cases" being my safety valve here! (Watching Sir Paul McCartney on Larry King right now, God I'm getting old) Of course, my present state of computer savvy doesn't permit me to contribute just yet (thanks, of troy, for rendering that last excuse irrelevant with your crash cyber-photo course! ). But, of course, I could never go before Jackie posts hers! (there's my out!)

To put words into Jackie's mouth (or PC or whatever):
"I'll get my picture took just as soon as I can find the bow to my cupid costume, sweetie!"

Now don't disappoint us Jackie!

For the benefit of y'all having problems getting to the Gallery:

rursumque ait non poteris videre faciem meam non enim videbit me homo et vivet

C'mon Jackie, double dare you twice over ...
Enough of this false modesty!
If I can brave the "exposure" so can you.
And we will all see you through the eyes of love.
And Mav, now that you've had your lil' joke ...???
No guts, no glory!

ohhh, does this mean we can expect to see you up there soon, wow?

and mav, i'm with wow. let's have it!!

besides, those onion things frighten me, and not just because i'm probably the only one here who still doesn't get the joke)

ps: anna~ hubba hubba... were you the driving force behind the change? the funhouse image was cool and all, but clarity becomes him =)

pps: hi, alex!! =)
