Gmail vs SBCGlobal

I know everyone’s offering them, but I’ve got them, too.

I have two Gmail invites at the moment and I’m happy to share if someone wants them. Just pop me a note on any of the known methods of getting a hold of me (email or comment).

As a reaction to Gmail, SBC’s Yahoo email that I use most has upped their pitiful 10 megs to 100 megs without me so much as asking. And they removed the annoying animated banner ads. I appreciate that. Because I am, after all, actually paying for the SBC service and deserve that little perk.

I have trouble with Gmail, mostly because I have to check it. I have a great little client on my computers called eprompter that tells me when any of my email addresses gets a new message. And I can actually preview the message as text, too. Gmail doesn’t let me do that. So I’ve been hesitant to use it.

And I like my SBC, actually. It’s functional. Which is all I really wanted anyway. So, that’s where I’ll stay for the moment.

I never truly abandon any email address anyway. I still use my AOL address from time to time, even though we left AOL five years ago. Call me old fashioned, but you never forget your first email account.

Dear Readers

I feel like I’ve let you down. I was posting so vigorously there for a while and now it’s been almost ten days. And the thing I left you with, well, some of you aren’t so happy with the roach.

The things I have to blog about are not things I’d put in my blog, so things will be sporadic here for a while. I may get inspired and inventive and want to keep in touch. Or not.

It’s nothing personal, of course.

In the mean time, I don’t think I’m going to give up on the photos, so if you want a little Cybele goodness, just pop on buzznet and you can at least see what’s in my back yard at any given moment or maybe on my drive home.

A little buddy, just for you

I won’t say where I found this fellow (not in my house!) but those of you who know me well will know where he came from.

Though I’m not the type to take photos at the site of an accident, I did huge photo shoot with this guy and used the “burst” mode on my camera where it takes three shots in quick sequence.

Once I saw those, I just had to make them into an animation.

Because I like to learn new things.

Okay, I really should be using these skills for good, not evil.

During November it's all about me writing a novel. Sometimes it's about whalewatching. You know, and then there's other stuff.
