Thing 23 January 29, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — cammyz @ 4:57 pm

Thing 23 is to look at podcasts?! which are sound files to listen to. I have to find one of interest and add an RSS feed to my blog. Not quite sure how, exactly I will achieve this, but I will have a go anyhow.

http://podcast.com/show/14207/Best-of-Nolan/

Well I’m not sure I have done it correctly. I will just have to publish this and see if it works as it should. I chose this podcast (after signing up for BBC podcasts with yet another username and password, well, actually I keep using the same ones for everything, the memory isn’t what it used to be!!) for the simple reason that Nolan was my maiden name and no other reason at all. I may try having a listen to it just to make sure it isn’t totally boring…

For Thing 22 I have to look at the YouTube website and find something of interest then add a link to the video clip. My clip is on Boston Terriers with a subtle link to libraries!! 

Wow, I’m amazed that that worked!! It’s quite fun watching all the different clips, you could lose hours on there. It almost makes me want to try having a go myself.

For this thing I have signed up to Library Thing  and entered in some of the books I have read within the last few years. Here is a link to my list of books http://www.librarything.com/catalog/cammyz . I’ve actually entered quite a few, but the exact editions shown in the list that comes up when you type in an author isn’t always the one I have read, if you know what I mean..I just picked the first one when it gave loads of different publishers. It’s an easy site to use and I supose reading others comments on what they thought about books you have also read is interesting. I may be tempted to use this site regularly…

This week it’s online image generators that we have to play around with and try and link to our favourite sites and supply one of our creations. I’m going to have a go with the South Park site because I made quite a cute little girl cartoon on there but am having difficulty saving it, http://www.sp-studio.de/ The picture is the wrong type of file to upload onto here so I will try again. http://www.fototrix.com/border/?border=0-600-480-tennis&version=saved&wrap=imagetennis-otis. Woohoo it worked. I chose tennis balls for Otis because he always seems to find one on his walk. Thing 20 was to sign up to Google Doc’s and share a document with another 25 thinger. I managed to do this quite easily and think this would be quite useful for sharing of non-sensetive/confidential information.c-morellihud-ac-uk_0841eeef I have also visited the following site http://www.faceyourmanga.com/faceyourmanga.php?lang=eng and created the rather flattering image on the right!!! Great fun!!!

Getting close to the end now… Well thing 17 was to sign up to Facebook the social networking site and I thought God, my kids are just going to love this!! So I duly created an account and asked them to be my friends. I wasn’t sure of a positive reaction to this, but they both said yes….I think I am going to regret it though because within minutes my eldest daughter had tagged lots of photos of me. Aaaargh! It seems quite fun and the hours just seem to pass by in an instant. Not sure if I will be bothered to carry on with it ‘cos I can never get on at home as my 2 are always on it!! Will just have to have a look when I’m at work instead. For Thing 18 I signed up to Twitter!! Not sure I will like this because I can’t find anyone on there, only Stephen Fry and I’m not too bothered about his going on’s, so I don’t think I will continue with this one.

 

Thing 16

Filed under: Uncategorized — cammyz @ 3:56 pm

Thing16 is to look at Google earth. I know we actually have this downloaded on our home computer, so I will go home and try to remember to have a play on it as instructed and report back on my findings…I’ve got to admit that I haven’t yet been on Google earth at home but from what I can remember of it, it’s very similar to Google map, which I have found to be quite useful.
