Gave lots of options including Flickr. However, to get WYSIWYG you have to click on preview which is a bit cumbersome as it shows a new window 🙂
Spelling works ok Although is it US or UK here is colour spelt the UK way which it doesn’t like 🙂
I think this one will hit the trash as well.

Using Qumana

First post using Qumana software on the iMac . Spent ages sorting out the problems of it recognizing my blog. Turned out I needed a .htaccess file  to allow remote posting. Then it transpired that it needed 664 permissions. All sorted now hopefully. Although I seemed to have destroyed Sally’s blog in the process 🙁

One problem only has a US dictionary.

Geoff the lazy so & so

 Ellee sent me the link to the Texperts tonight, these are folks who you can text any question too 66000  and get an answer.

They have a challenge quiz to see if you are suitable as someone to work with them.  Here are my results:-

Category Percentage Pass
General Knowledge – Music 40.00 Fail
General Knowledge – Science & Technology 80.00 Pass
General Knowledge – UK Geography 60.00 Fail
The Basics – Fun With Numbers 80.00 Pass
The Basics – Speakin’ the Queen’s 75.00 Pass
Read It and Weep 68.75 Fail

We’ve tallied your scores and it is official: you are a Lazy So & So. Your brain doesn’t hurt too much right now because you never switched it on. You have beaten the Class Dunce but have a long way to go until you make Gold Star Texpert status. You’ve definitely got ability, though, so freshen up and have another go.

You have been unsuccessful.

So the same as my school reports – lazy must try harder 🙂

Have a go and leave a comment.

Putting your head in a spin.

A cool optical illusion or a computer gimmick. which way is this dancer rotating?

Spinning Dancer

The theory is according to Geoff of Geofftech.

If you see it spinning clockwise, then you are a ‘right sided’ brain person, who uses feeling, is ‘big picture’ orientated and your imagination rules you.

If you see it spinning anti-clockwise, then you are a ‘left sided’ brain person who uses logic, is detail orientated and facts rule.

Most of us would see the dancer turning anti-clockwise though you can try to focus and change the direction; see if you can do it.

So do you see clockwise or anti-clockwise? Are you left or right minded?

So give it a spin and let me know in the comments?.

ps its clockwise for me – most of the time
