STC TCS 2010 Dallas Photo Journal

May 09, 2010 in Society

In the interest of time, I thought I’d share the photos I took in Dallas with the world the quickest way possible. I quickly weeded through the doubles and darkies on my disk, imported them into iPhoto, then exported them into a new Picasa album. This is my first attempt to embed a Picasa album.

Read the write up for more insight.

Restoring SDHC and Compact Flash memory

Sep 28, 2009 in Technology

I meant to write about tools to restore the data from FUBARed SDHC memory cards last year. This week at least a couple of co-workers told me about their SD and micro-SD cards becoming unreadable, possibly due to their computer’s lack of support for the SDHC format.

In this post I talk about a couple of free and commercial tools that helped me recover lost space when my card reader mysteriously stopped supporting my SDHC card, and recover lost photos from corrupt Compact Flash cards.

We all stream for ustream.tv

Aug 22, 2008 in Creativity, Personality, Technology

As part of my volunteer activity for the Society for Technical Communication – Canada West Coast chapter, I offered to evaluate some streaming video technology we may use to kick off our program meeting in September. Since the spring of 2008, we branded ourselves as a virtual chapter, and shifted our focus from face-to-face meetings to online communities like a forum and wiki attached to our web site. One area we had yet to try was the notion of live video streaming. You can’t get more virtual than live video. On a recommendation from Bruce Sharpe, I explored ustream.tv tonight, and I got hooked. In 20 minutes I joined ustream.tv, set up a channel, and broadcast my first video from a webcam connected to my laptop. I even recorded a clip, if you’d care to look….
