Thank you Erika Gunderson

The story of how Erica and her fiance Brian Ascher returned a camera tracking clues from the photos left on the camera itself to an Irish owner living in Australia.

An interesting tale where everyone comes out a winner. A nice piece to read to end the weekend. I just wish someone found me from a camera that I left in a taxi in Amsterdam on Queen’s Day 2004. A lot of memorable photos were lost.

Automatic geotagging of photos

DP Review reports that a new geotagging device that adds geotagging to photos taken while carrying it around. I have thought about adding geotagging to my photos but every solution that I have considered takes some effort. This would be very nice to sync with Google Maps on my fotolog site.

The pocket-sized receiver keeps track of where you go and, so long as you’ve synchronized your camera with the clock on the Photo Finder, will match up your photos with where you were when you took them. Inserting an SD, SDHC, MMC or Memory Stick PRO Duo card allows the device to embed this location information into the EXIF metadata of the images on the card.

Interesting concept behind Metalink3 as the substitute for Siebel Supportweb. Instead of designated contacts for an account with all users within that account using one of the designated user accounts, now each user will have their own account and they will be granted access to an account. This will provide Oracle with a more detailed view of their application user base including what projects individual consultants work on. It seems likely that end clients will be more diligent about adding and removing access to users rather than the past practice of changing the password everytime that someone left a project. It seems that finally Oracle/Siebel is interested in practicing CRM on it’s own customers and consultants.

Goodbye Siebel Suportweb

It has been replaced by Oracle’s metalink. Unfortunately, old logins no longer work. I would imagine quite a few developers are feeling naked today without the access to that material.

Man wins damages for theft of wife

Amazing story

When Sandra Valentine divorced her husband, Johnny, and married the man who had fathered her child during an affair, it had every appearance of another unremarkable tale of marital breakdown.

But when Johnny hit back and sued his rival Jerry Fitch for a six-figure sum, the Mississippi love triangle took on an altogether different dimension. And when he won in a verdict upheld by the state supreme court, he was suddenly richer to the tune of £750,000.

opening up the eee pc

Just read this great article
from the Download Squad about enabling full desktop mode on the eee pc. I was initially looking at installing mysql, php and apache and using it for web development and came across the website. Very easy to understand for someone who has never used linux before but it gives me an appetite to really dig in and discover what this baby has to offer.
