Oh no worries, easy mistake, the first page with the rules on is (p)ages away.

I have an ugly mug! I have two of them!

Oh yeah? Well I've got FIVE!

Edit: No ugly mugs were harmed or injured during the process of making this photo.

The last one's right at the top, inside the giant white one. It's a bit hard to spot, but there's definitely five ugly mugs.

We went camping for my birthday.  Here is me after having some cake and eating it too:

My buddy's wife likes bubbles, so she made this rig with two sticks, some string, and a weight.  You dip it into a big bucket of bubble stuff (her own formula), use the sticks to open and close the string, and with a little practice, can create gigantic bubbles.  It was intense.

Here's my son making one:

I feel like it's time to explain as much of my family as I can with one shot. A wedding shot.

This is several members of my family, from left to right:

(http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u146/Zingoleb/ohgod.jpg)

My grandmother, my cousin Cody, my aunt Debbie, my cousin Jessica, and the groom, my cousin Chip. Notice Chip's teeth. None of them are real. This is because Chip drinks beer constantly - even at his own wedding vows - and never brushes his teeth. On the far right, you'll notice a John Deere tractor. More on that later.

What you cannot see in this picture, is that this ceremony is taking placing at the local gun club. Neither can you see the cherry picker, which they said their actual vows on. Neither can you see the truck in which they cooked the chicken for the ceremony - by wrapping it in foil and putting it on the engine, letting the heat cook it through.

What you can see is my cousin. Why, yes, those ARE shotgun shells with flowers in them. The tractor? Why, the theme of the wedding was "John Deere". Note the green dress, and the green and yellow balloons. After the wedding was over, they drove home in this tractor.

This is a summary of my family, in one picture.

Edit: I found a picture of the bride's bouquet, felt I had to share.

Punk houses are the best for breakfast. Vegans and punks are deconstructing and re-examining many societal principles, and reconstructing their lives the ways they want them to be. In doing so, they have discovered that breakfast is bitchin' cool.

Totally. All the punk squats we played at gave us amazing food. That's also why I love it each time we play in Ungdomshuset in Copenhagen, especially on days where Crustina from Nuclear Death Terror is head of the kitchen.

Paella could certainly be filled with langoustines and oysters!
I was watching a Food Network show where someone was just trying all kinds of different paellas from across Spain, and one guy was cooking in a big paellera over a fire and when he had combined everything he took a big twig of rosemary, lit it on fire with the flame, then tossed it on top of the paella and closed the lid so it would just slowly smoke into everything.
That is what I want to do with paella some day.

I actually really like this shot, even though it was about 5 second too early to catch me groping my friend as well. There was another group of people doing similar things right behind the camera. We were having a grope-off, I guess? It was very silly. Too much alcohol, etc.

The Precision is the only way to fly. In typical Fender fashion she's had better luck with the Hwy 1 models than the more pricey Am Stds. Unfortunately the red one just above had to be given back to GC because the neck ramped up. She recorded all the tracks on our 1st rekkid on that one <sniff>. Fortunately she got the black one for nothing because: uber warranty. Also SNAPPY!

Just a heads up - I think pictures of guns are against the rules on this forum. I realise you aren't posting it as a kind of "look at me I'm a psychopath shoot everyone up!" thing, which is what the rule is presumably worried about, but it's best not to risk it I think. A mod might well correct me on this one though :) (Love the ears ;) You should get that done surgically!)
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: pwhodges on 20 Oct 2011, 01:28
The forum rules don't mention it (I'll think about that).  However, your memory is correct: unfortunately, when I split this thread down to a practical size, that left behind the introductory post which says:

Some guidelines for newer people/reminders for regulars:
- Photos have to include you in it.  No posting random funny pictures; that's what the Pointless thread is for. (Thanks to Joe for reminding me about this one)
- If the first thing you do when you join the forum is post in here a lot (ie: more than one photo-post per page) then people might get annoyed with you.  Let us get to know you a little first!
- Also, while photodumps are kind of cool if they are about you doing something interesting, please keep it to one or two pics per post.
- Please don't be creepy in this thread.  Giving someone a well-intentioned compliment is one thing, but generally bar posting porn being a total sleaze in this thread is the quickest way to get yourself banned.
- No posting of violence-related material such as guns, knives etc in here please.

I have edited the photo above to remove any emphasis on the gun; but as the picture also hides and distorts the subject's features, it could be considered not to be a picture of them either.  I will think on it, and still may remove the picture completely.

I guess the question is, why do we have that rule? Is it because Jeph doesn't like guns, full stop? Is it because we're worried about glorifying weaponary on a forum that could be accessed by children? Is it because of some American law I don't know about? Personally I find guns disturbing, but I think that's because I'm from the UK and we don't really have them here in the same way so to me, a gun is something alien and terrifying. But that isn't really a reason not to allow someone to post a photo of themselves doing something that is part of their identity.

I'm quite glad I'm not a moderator!
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Carl-E on 20 Oct 2011, 07:16
Nothing about laws, but I think you've hit on the reson - most of the other rules have to do with the annoyance of the viewers, and certainly there's a sector of the population that find weapons of violence disturbing, hence no weapons. 

(Personally, I don't like guns either, but seeing other people's guns (in a non-violent setting) doesn't disturb me.  In fact, I participate in a forum for a zombie comic where talking about one's guns is the norm (the artist is a collector of sorts, and many of the readers are "survivalists" - it's an interesting place...))
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: pwhodges on 20 Oct 2011, 07:37
Well, the no guns thing is not in Jeph's rules, but it is in est's. 

In some respects I'm still sorting out in my mind what this forum actually is!  When it was first set up, the people who are now on PocketJury moved in en block  from another forum (this is perhaps simplifying things, but is broadly accurate, I think).  I understand (from messages in the mods-only forum, and from early comic newsposts like #79) that est (perhaps) and another admin who's no longer around, called Heather, actually helped Jeph with some of the server setup.  However, when the rest of that group started using this forum as their home for general socialising, the mods' and admins' extensions of Jeph's rules became necessary to control some of their behaviour, and also to control their interaction with people who actually wanted to discuss the comic.  Now those people have moved on (including all the previously active admin and mods), feeling that after seven years they've outstayed their welcome, the forum is in some ways a blank slate; and so it seems to be up to me, with the aid of any moderators I appoint (only "Is it cold in here?" at present), to define the ethos of this place (Jeph has not yet decided to contribute to this though he must by now be aware of the changes, but obviously I would defer to him if he does).

Three years ago, one mod (Inlander) raised the matter of incomplete rules in the mods' forum, but no one picked it up and nothing was done.  He had received a query about guns, in fact, and had replied:
Quote from: Inlander
Yeah, there are a few informal "rules" that have sprung up in response to certain unforeseen problems or situations that weren't foreseen when the original rules were written. Not posting pictures of (real) guns in the picture thread is one, because somebody did just that once and a lot people got a bit freaked out by it.
Since then, there has been one poster who started and drove discussions of guns in the Discuss! forum, and again annoyed a lot of people (he got banned in the end). 

My notes on the rules (http://forums.questionablecontent.net/index.php/topic,27423.msg1056736.html#msg1056736) is intended to be the necessary extension of Jeph's rules, gathered into one place, and I have added a sentence about guns to it, alongside the prohibition on religion and politics (another thing that people ask about because it's not in Jeph's rules), and worded it so as not to prohibit photos in which the gun is incidental.  In the end, though, it comes down to the discretion of me and the mods - we try to be reasonable, while also maintaining standards.

@Wraith11B:  Don't worry about the face thing - what you say makes sense.

It was basic campfire sing-a-long stuff.  A bunch of Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, John Denver... stuff that old farts like myself who grew up in the 70's would know.  Progressions were were simple (lots of A, D, G, and other guitar-friendly chords) so whipping up a countermelody, taking a solo (since no one else wanted to) and/or adding a well-known hook line wasn't a biggie.  Pretty amateur stuff, but it was fun.

Making a living professionally modelling is very different from what I mean when I use the term "camwhore" and really, I don't think the photo I took fits it either. It's not like taking a photo in the bathroom mirror making a pouty face just for the sake of taking a photo of yourself. :-P

I would say the intent to make an interesting photo for purposes and shows something other than, "Look at me. Ain't I attractive?"

Also I suppose making money from it, probably regardless of intention, in that it's become their profession.

what gauge and metal type for the helmet, does it have a complete leather suspension system or just the chin-strap?
Flattened and alternating riveted/solid wedge-riveted rings with 17 gauge mild steel wire.  Rings are about 9mm diameter.

And the helmet has the leather lining suspension.  16 gauge steel.  It's actually more massive than it appears in the pic; if the liner's wide open, the helmet sits low enough for the noseguard to be below my chin.  I packed the upper inside of it with leather for a more stable fit.  Weighs a tad more than a Kevlar helmet.

Hello photo thread, it's been a while! Since we last met, I've been a busy lad. One night before winter finally really hit, some buds and I did a stupid stache night out, and this was my entry:

Then a little before New Year's I played a gig with my friend and not-yet bandmate Matt, who is a fucking champion. I am the one in the amazing hat:

OK, so techinically it's not a photo, but it is  me.  And it's not new, it's been around for about two years (I think), but I just came across it again.  It's from the webcomic Simply Sarah (http://www.drunkduck.com/simply_sarah/), she said she was going to have some walk ons, and would anyone like to be in a webcomic?  I sent headshots, and she made me a used car salesman...

This one shows you a bit more of the atmosphere of the show; this was during the one cover song we did (as well as the only song I sang), "Twist and Shout"

That was the song that really got the night going, too, everybody loves the Beatles! The bass belongs to my best friend, he's loaning it to me since he can't bring it with him while he's in the Air Force (he brought his Jazz Bass with him since it's a lot more sturdy and durable than, say, a hollowbody bass, although McCartney's has lasted him for decades).

Nothing in music is original anymore. Same with art. Not saying that people aren't creative, but chances are that whatever is "new" references something else and is by no means going to be a new revolution because it's already been done before.

That sounds really pessimistic, but when you're talking about the rules of music, it's all been done. It may sound different, but there's something in it that has been done before.

Idunno, I never heard of the Beatles singing at a cymbal and close-miking both so that the cymbal would provide a natural reverb. That's part of how I spent my day. I also never heard of them using reverb tanks as percussion, or weed grinders for that matter. They also never played a stylophone or used a megaphone to process vocals. Or taken a complete "I have no idea what I'm doing" take of a trumpet (we really didn't know what we were doing) only to use it prominently at the end of a song.

There's still plenty of things the Beatles never tried, people are just too timid to do it because they (perhaps self-consciously) think the Beatles invented the universe. They didn't, they just made it worth me living in it.

Here's me and Kabir at our last show as Injun Magic. We're not breaking up, I just finally managed to get him to agree to change that stupid name. I'm finally sick enough of hearing about how much the name sucks to start caring.

I don't think Linds was saying that the Beatles have done everything there is to do. She was just saying that everything is a development from something that has been done before and nothing is totally new. Which I agree with, regardless of your weed grinder percussion.

Yeah, that's what I meant. And weed grinder could be similar to Cage's vegetables in a blender I guess.

Anywho, Pat, I am really glad you are changing your band name. Because it is. So. BAD.
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Patrick on 06 Mar 2012, 11:29
We're changing it for a reason: I finally managed to convince Kabir that it's not polite to use a band name that contains the racial slur "Injun". It's pejorative against the aboriginal folk of America. He just thought it was cute because he's Indian, as in, India.

I was in this choral festival over the weekend.  Dress code for guys was suit and tie.  Black bow tie, to be exact.  I had to buy one.

This was obviously something that needed to be preserved for posterity.

Yes, it's March and there's still a Christmas wreath on the wall, and my house is a mess.  It's a nice wreath, and we're kinda lazy.

If you look really hard, you can see me, but you still can't tell that I'm just wearing black jeans with a suit coat.  We were there all day, and I was gonna be comfortable, dammit.

Nice! 

We do a choral thing at the cathedral every christmas, and I had to buy a bow tie a couple of years ago.  I have an old flat-pleat tux shirt with a wingtip collar that I wear with it, under a black suit whose jacket is much like your own. 

No pics, though. 

Oh, and don't feel bad - we almost  have Christmas packed up, and one of these days I'll get the lights off the front porch...

My student still has his Christmas tree up. I am chalking it up to a failure on my part to explain the concept of Twelth Night properly. But perhaps he just likes the christmas pig/bear/dog card that he stuck on top in lieu of a star.

I learnt how to tie a bow tie last week! It was very exciting. When my friend uploads the photos I will show you.

That just reminded me of a cool story. A friend of mine was pretty bummed out last year - he had a marathon scheduled on the same day as a Frank Turner concert that he'd bought tickets to. He'd been training for the marathon for ages, and because of geography, couldn't do both. So he gave his sister his tickets, in she went in his stead. Anyway, that night his phone starts ringing. Unknown number. He answers the phone, and on the other end of the line is a voice belonging to Frank Turner, who says that he just rang up to congratulate him for finishing the marathon. Turns out, his sister had bumped into Frank after the show, and explained how bummed her brother was about not being able to go.

Also, The Ballad of Me and My Friends, fuckers.

...yyeeeeeaaaaaahhh, folk music's a different ball o' wax entirely.  Too many people label siger-songwriters as folk musicians.  They are not  the same, although there's overlap, as with all genres.  Woody Guthrie springs to mind - everything he wrote souded like it had been around forever. 

English folk makes me think of Child ballads.  And my entry into them, through Steeleye Span. 


Now, where did I put all those old records?

Back in highschool I used to do archery (there is no proper verb form). I was really into it for a few years and my dad got all excited that his bookish, unmanly son was interested in a sport and he bought me a really nice bow and a bunch of gear. Last few weeks I've been getting back into it and the other day I managed to drive down to the Olympic Park and practise with the new gear I'd bought.

Nice. (Shame about that one in the black.) I'd wish my dad bought archery gear for me, but I'm more glad he doesn't advocate the stereotypical view of manliness, on account of being a massive nerd - just like me. I did an introduction course to archery once as well, but after the initial lessons were over, the archery club did require you to buy your own bow, which we couldn't afford at that time. Still, I walked away with some good lessons, and it was pretty fun.

We had some bows as kids, my two brothers and I. I thought they were the coolest things.

But I was and probably am still so weak that I couldn't pull the strings of the bows and instead of helping me my dad just did that "well hahahahahaha you suck because you're a girl" thing. so.

I got back at him by being the awesome kid.

You know what I had in HS PE? Running. We ran. Everyday. Into eternity. Which is probably why they didn't bother making you go passed the 10th grade. Then we just had like higher level pe that was optional and was still just running.

Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Kenyahp on 23 Mar 2012, 10:44
My teacher would try to make me and my friends do stuff. He'd look at the three of us, tell us to stretch and start running. We'd look back, say no, and that was that. Still got an A. I think the pure boldness made him not hate us?

I was also moody. Still am. Unfortunately, my friends would have looked behind the bleachers. Misery loves company.

I never got why my high school PE teachers were always so emotionally invested in making people who didn't want to play sports, play sports. It's not like they were ever actually teaching us anything. They just picked a sport, and we had to play it for a while or else. Why, Mr. [NAME OMITTED], is it so important for you that I play football? WHY?

There was one kid that was a little bitch in my PE class in 9th grade. During the hot months (in Arizona, no less) on Fridays we would all have to do a mile on the track then we got to go chill in the pool for the rest of class. No hard exercise, just playing in a pool. This one fucker would take like 18-20 minutes to walk the mile, even when more than half the class (everyone had already finished) went back and urged him to jog the last 100 feet or so to at least try and improve his time and get us into the goddamn pool faster. He just said no in this super snappy tone and so we all stopped liking him at all after he did it 2-3 weeks in a row.

Like, even the dude who was crazy overweight and was taking the class because you have to would jog in the last bit.

After going through this thread I have reached the conclusion that I must have the most uninteresting life ever. Band singers, choral festivals, Halloween madness, models, the whole gamut of lifestyles. You people are crazy! And I mean that in the exciting, 'I want to move to where you are' kinda way. (Also, this small cross-section seems to suggest that the QC readership is mostly comprised of white late-twenties). Anyone not from the US here? I wonder what the results of a poll would reveal about the demographics of QC readers.

Me looking stoned without being stoned. Actual camwhoring here, but it's one of the only pictures I have of myself so not sure if that really counts. (I hate photos cos I'm horribly unphotogenic in most circumstances)

Will check out this Frank Turner dude. In turn I recommend Amanda Palmer and The Dresden Dolls (her band but she's also a solo artist). Incredible stuff.

PS: If someone can tell me how to shrink photos I will give them a free hug. =)

demographics of QC readers.

I guess that this forum has a majority of people in their 20s from the US; but there are a lot from Britain as well, and from Canada, Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Scandinavia, and elsewhere.  Also people of all ages: there are active contributors who are teens and a couple in their 70s.  This all reflects reasonably well the readership of the comic as Jeph has remarked on it in the past.

Well it's good to know we're such a diverse bunch, even if it is largely limited to the western sphere (which is to be expected, given that this is an English-language comic). I was just surprised that there weren't more from Asia, Africa and such, considering that QC is likely the largest/most popular/famous webcomic currently running (I realise that this may be wrong, but if so, what IS the most popular webcomic out there?).

A Viking shield I'm making.  The background was later painted in a cadmium red, but under certain light it looks almost orange, so I might repaint it in a darker red.  The only thing keeping me from doing that is that it took almost an hour to edge the jörmungandr before taking a larger brush to the shield.

I was a newspaper reporter when the local cable channel asked me to interview an author. The interview went well enough, but when I watched it, I saw myself wrinkling my nose, far too often. It's not ordinarily a nervous habit, but it was for the duration of that interview.
And yes, a casual observer might see me check my fly on the way into a building. Or at least look down at my fly. But that's a good response to getting more forgetful about it in the last 10 years. Women in my workplace, I recall, were often looking down at themselves. At what, I don't think I ever learned, or even asked about.

I wish I could've gone as the Viking (to ravish the wenches, of course :evil: ), but the GA Faire doesn't allow weapons other than swords and daggers :-(

Disallowing spears/polearms and firearms I can understand (too easy to take out a lot of people with a polearm if you turn around quickly, and you can't easily tell with firearms if they're real or not...), but not allowing maces and axes as well?  Draconian... :?

I think the people who wear plate (like...real plate armor, not the plastic stuff) at ren fairs are a little crazy, mostly because I think they would be too hot to enjoy anything. Also it's all heavy and stuff, not that chainmail isn't. Though I have seen some guys make really fantastic leather armor and wear it and I am always jealous. Also one dude had a magnificent set of wood armor (he was an elf, not really renaissance, but still cool) that I pined over.

Personally, the things I'll be making for the ren fest will be more medieval, but I do not have skills to make an Elizabethan dress. This (http://butterick.mccall.com/b4827-products-6120.php?page_id=385) I can handle, but this (http://www.simplicity.com/p-1547-costumes.aspx) is way beyond me.

Actually! Plate armor that is made to fit the wearer (as all plate armor of the period was) is not as heavy as one would think. It was generally 18-22g steel and had many arming points to relieve the weight.
Chainmail rests solely on the shoulders and generally a belt is worn to help mitigate the weight but plate often weighs less than chain.

^this

Defensive technology is always behind offensive technology.  And "more prominent" usage is not the same a "common" usage.  Most people were still getting hit with blades in battle (or cannonballs/grapeshot/shrapnel, but what're ya gonna do?), so chain was still being used quite a bit through the renaissance. 

Not by the wealthy, mind you...

Not only that, but true plate armour weighs about a third less then the equipment carried by modern soldiers on their back. The modern interpretation of plate armour comes from Hollywood, where they would used Jousting armour, a type that was meant to be heavy and reinforced, as it was supposed to used for safety. Most of whom wore plate were trained to do so from childhood, meaning that they were gradually used to it, as opposed to people who wear nowadays who aren't necessarily used to it. And, there are books and reports of plate being highly mobile, with many knights able to run over significant distances, swim in full armour, as well as performing backflips from a height.

Third date I had with my girlfriend, we made sushi. Right before an unfortunate incident with a blob of wasabi, I was impressing her with my skills with chopsticks, despite the fact I had never used them before XD

Anyway, some scenic photos from when I was in Finland over Easter.
The view from the bar of the Hotel Torni, which, while no longer the tallest building in Helsinki, is the highest bar in the city. (I made the mistake of wearing a short sleeve shirt with a t-shirt underneath it. Very chilly. And this coming from someone who loves the cold.)

And then on Easter Sunday, my girlfriend and I went for a walk around and on a lake. (Lots of jokes were made about walking on water....with a loud crack as the ice shifted as the punchline)

To be fair, the ice was about a foot and a half thick, with the thaw about a month away, so we were safe enough. But then again, as someone whose main experience with ice is the cubes I pour a drink over, I wasn't 100% comfortable with walking on the ice as each shift of the ice had me thinking "WTF!?!?!?!?CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAP!!!!" Still walked along though, nice day too.

When I lived in Albania I used to spend summers working in Alaska, and wound up dating this awesome girl there. One February I was able to come visit. It would snow a lot, but some days it would warm up so much that the snow would melt just enough to turn into thick, hard ice by nightfall.

One day we were walking home from the grocery store, and my girlfriend at the time slipped, fell, and broke her left wrist (she's a lefty, and an artist too).

I don't fucks with no ice.

I got sick of having my hair in pigtails pretty quick. Also had a strip of red and black material tied in a bow around the tails but it got pully and sore pretty quick, especially with the red hair spray making my freshly cut/clean hair rock hard.

Some older lady came to the open mic at my bar this week and took pictures of me and some of the various folks I jammed with! In this one, I look quite interested in what I'm singing:

My band had a show today in the middle of downtown Livermore. Since this town is kinda a shithole of white suburbia, we did a mega pisstake on all the old men walking around in Hawaiian shirts. You can't see it here but Matt (left) upped the ante by wearing socks and sandals.

Once a month, the department has a "bow tie day".  Our department chair wears 'em, along with vests. fedoras, and he collects and uses fountain pens.  He thought it would be a fun way to promote unity in the department. 

More and more of the department joins in each month.  I'm at a branch campus, but no reason I couldn't join in!

In response to Patrick: The singer playing harmonica in the wrong key and me mouthing "what the fuck" at him.
I will never understand why he decided to do that.

So maybe he was trying to get the two of you to bend?
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Carl-E on 07 May 2012, 13:58
There's bending, and then there's the wrong damn key.  Does he have more than one harmonica?  Maybe he grabbed the wrong one.  Unless it's chromatic, he's stuck. 

Or an idiot.

Geez, I thought it was a joke. TBH, I own a few harmonicas but never learned to play blues, never learned to bend at will, never put in the time to learn. My choir partied a lot in the 70s and 80s and went across the street to a bar after rehearsals, and when we started to sing -- Country Roads was sort of a theme song -- I'd ask the guitar player what key she was in.

Probably singing, that was taken at a cantus, which for those of you who have no idea of the concept is just a bunch of students drinking and singing in a semi-ritualised fashion. It's a pretty interesting phenomenon.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cantus
It is interesting; I'd never heard of this. It immediately brought to mind Brahm's Academic Festival Overture, and a historic Detroit MI building, the Harmonie Club, which used to house a German ground founded around singing.

Not Beatles, but yeah - definitely reminiscent of the late '60's-early '70's.  Something I really would've appreciated back in the 80's when it came out.  Considering the music circles I hung out in back then, I was just surprised I'd never heard of them.

Personally, I'm a musical omnivore.  Bluegrass to baroque, rock to ragas, and most stuff in between.  And these forums have been a goldmine, although I tend to stay out of BAND.  Just...too much.

I warmed to country and bluegrass, a little, over the years with my Nashville-born wife, after Clara proposed to me on our first date and I rejected her because of her presumed rural upbringing and musical tastes. I never warmed enough to ragas even after 20 months in India, although I still enjoy the sound track to the Satyajit Ray Pather Panchali trilogy. Clara and I came late to opera, and that taste is still developing. It's apt to slow without her or another companion to attend Met Live in HD performances.

But I mean, people will do weird things sober or not. I knew a guy who would take his shirt off every time he could (photos, just because it'd be funny, etc.) and he doesn't drink. But I know people who get drunk and that's when the weird comes out, so yeah. I mean, I dunno, but that guy totally butt bombed the photo and it's funny either way.

My pre-gaming parties usually involve alcohol.... but then I have been called a lush more than twice.   Really I am just cheap.

yeahhh, me too. when i go out i want to get nice and drunk and it's just too damn expensive. Why am I going to pay $5 for one drink when I can spend the same amount on 6 of them?

In that photo which doesn't include the birthday boy, who doesn't drink, only four including myself drink. I'm not even a big drinker and one other isn't either so we won't miss it at a party. The other drank at the going out part.

My birthday party had pre-drinking drinking though.

I cut my hair last night - took about 6-7 inches off. It was too long and drab, it needed body! I see from the pic that I have a little evening-up to do, whoops.

That looks great! I've been considering a radical chop, my hair has been long for such a long time now that I feel anxious about it but it's heavy and warm, which is likely to be an issue this summer. Might wait til I get to the States and see if I think it's worth it for the drop in temperature.

If this summer will be anything like last summer (which it's looking like it will be), it's going to be really freaking hot. Ft. Wayne is not in a valley like Cincinnati is, so that might help a little, but I remember coming back from vacation in Florida and watching the thermostat in the car go up as we went north instead of going down like it should have. (It was easily 10+ degrees F hotter in Kentucky and Ohio than it was down south.) Indiana usually has similar weather to here, just less humid (stupid valleys), but I remember thinking I was nuts for growing out my hair again last year.

Thanks, May!

And ^ what she said. Even in the northern states (I think you said you'll be up north mostly?) it just gets ugly in the summer. You may want to consider getting your hair thinned out a bit even if you don't get it chopped, or be prepared to ponytail it!
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Lines on 23 May 2012, 10:11
Forgot to mention I really like your new haircut! Derp.

You could also have it thinned out a bit? I don't know if that's just something people do with shorter hair, but my stylist would go in with a razor and cut some areas of my hair a little shorter, like underneath the outermost layer of hair (if that makes sense). It helped quite a bit.

Becky (is that the right spelling?), I'll be in the east coast as far south as Washington DC in July, then in Indiana for the rest of the summer. I wear my hair up all the time anyway and it's warm here - I think today's high was 22 celcius, which is about 70 Fahrenheit. I suspect it will be warmer there. Argh.

It's been in the 80s (around 24 C according to weather channel) lately, but it's going to be up in the 90s by the weekend. So...it's going to be hot. I mean worse comes to worse, you just get your hair trimmed while you're with Edith if need be. Or just spend most of your time inside or at the pool like I do when it's hot. :)

It really is amazing how lovely a cold floor can be in gross temperatures. The cat has been spending all of her time sprawled on our tile kitchen floor. It's been fairly steady temperature-wise the past week but it's been SO humid. At least it almost feels like Spring/Summer though...the weather here has been very indecisive. It's not unusual for us to experience the sensation of all four seasons in one week.

Guys it gets up to 45 C (~115 F) here in Livermore during parts of the summer, no joke. I cut my hair off after it was past my shoulders, as you've seen, and it's about 2" long now. DEFINITELY the best idea for temperature control. Thinking about cutting it again soon, in fact.

She put that outfit together herself and did have a hand in the wing design. Mike really did a great job on these pics. Now I gotta sell a kidney or something to pay for his work. He took a load more but I think that's enough of teh photodump for May.

I was teensy- 5 lbs, 6 oz when I was born. Also about a month premature. And apparently I was "quick" to do everything else too. I spoke fairly early and remember my mom telling me that even before I started school, I "read" bedtimes stories instead of her because I memorized them. Of course now, I can't remember crap.  :-P

Funny, my mom says the exact same thing about me. I had my favorite bedtime story memorized as well, so it was basically me telling them to my mom.

She also tells me that I started reading before starting school because of the TV guide. Toddler me sees my dad looking at a booklet, who says "oh, this is on TV", at which point he turns on the TV and lo, it is as he says. MAGIC. Toddler me demanded to know how he did that, and so was taught to read.

Heh, thanks everybody ^_^

Mac babbles a lot and we can tell she has her own words for a lot of things (wtf is dockadoo?), but right now there are only a handful we recognize. Her favorite word right now is "hey". Someone walks in the room - "Hey! Heyyy! Hey! Heyyyyyyy! Heyyy!" She says "whoa" when she drops something or falls down, and she says "oh yeah!" when she's excited about something. She also knows nie-nie (night-night), bah (ball), bot (bottle), mama, dada/deedah, mum-mum-mum (nom-noms, what we call solid food), and grah (granny, grandma, or granddaddy). She even came out with the full "grah-dah-dee!" one day.

She nods her head, which we're figuring out means both "yes" and "I like this" - either way she recognizes that head-nodding is a positive reaction. Luckily she hasn't learned to say "no" yet, though she definitely knows what it means! She dances any time any music comes on... or when we sing or drum on something... or just when she feels like it. And a few days ago she was trying to jump. Physical skills are definitely her forte!

Yes, I'm a first-time mom, how could you tell.

I don't know how old I was when I started walking/talking, I just no my first word was, "No," and I supposedly liked saying it a lot, both for no and yes.

Apparently I preferred to say "yes" rather than "no" when I was little. One time I got hurt badly enough that my parents took me to the emergency room, and the injury - I wrenched my arm, maybe? - looked like possible abuse to the doctors, so they tried to ask me questions... Did someone hurt you? Yes! Did your parents do this to you? Yes! Have they ever hurt you before? Yes! I want to say I was about 18 months, which seems rather young to be trying to question a kid, but it all got sorted out.

Oh, lord... that reminds me of our adventurous (and consequently accident prone) daughter and her frequent visits to the emergency room for the oddest injuries.  I also remember the one where, after the nurse looked at us oddly (it was the fifth visit in three months), we insisted that she tell the nurse what happened herself.  I think she was 5, explaining how she cut her foot falling of the top of a fire hydrant. 


The nurse's reactions were always the same as ours;  "...and what were you doing on top of a fire hydrant?"

Or the stiches that put the inside of her cheek back; "...how did the cat's paw get inside your mouth again?" 

Or the broken wrist; "...why were you doing a handstand in the bathtub?" 




You have some fun ahead of you, Elysiana...

PHOTO DUMP AHOY

So I went flying with my old man on Fathers' Day. This was our mount:

This is a row of the so-called "Mothball Fleet" in Suisun Bay:

(http://i.imgur.com/pcbnK.jpg?1)

This is the part of town I live in. See the D shaped golf course (center)? I live toward the bottom point. My bandmate Matt lives beyond the other end of it:

(http://i.imgur.com/KPkl1.jpg?1)

This is the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where lasers, supercomputers, and nuclear fusion research all happen:

(http://i.imgur.com/9WBzw.jpg?1)

And this is the Curtiss P-40E (early WWII-era American fighter) that lives at the Livermore Municipal Airport. She's one of 7 flying examples left, and she's absolutely fucking pristine, a real treasure:

Blood of unknown origin would be the most metal.
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: BeoPuppy on 05 Jul 2012, 09:28
Depends on the type of metal. Nu-metal demands blood mixed with tears both from self-harm. Thrash asks for moshpit-mishap blood. Death metal ... maybe the blood of society wrung from it by evil corporations. Black metal ... well, vampire blood, or maybe the blood of a really frisky nun, or something. Real metal ... virgin blood or possibly blood gotten out in battle (usually the same thing) ... Folk metal must be the blood gotten from fingers cut on those fucking mandolin strings ...

Something.

Vampire blood would be gothic metal, surely. For black metal, you need a goat's blood. And for viking metal it'd have to be the blood of a Christian.

This thread is mainly for pictures of ourselves, and possibly family.  Something like an artistic photograph or a photoshop creation sits better in the MAKE forum.  That is rather quiet, admittedly, but if more stuff appeared in there, more people would visit it as well.

It looks like the URLs you inserted are for the webpage the images are on and not direct links to the images.  You want a URL that ends in .jpg (or another image type).  You can usualyt find that URL by right clicking on a photo and selecting "copy image url" though I think Flikr has that disabled.  It looks like you can get the URL you need from the "share" menu above the photo.

That; and you've set the images to be not downloadable, so I can't change to a hotlink or rehost them for you - so I've changed the links to be visible as such.

EDIT - OK, I managed to dig out the hidden links (obviously it can't be made impossible, because the browser has to get the pictures to display them, but they do try to make it hard!)

My role, curiously, was the same; my step-daughter-in-law's family had disowned her (specifically for marrying my step-son), so I filled the function of the bride's father throughout, including the speech at the reception.  Her mother made it to the church, which was a bit awkward.  My difference in style was more a matter of what my daughter wanted - it was the first time I've worn a waistcoat since 1963, when the late Queen Mother visited my school and the senior scholars had to wear court dress.

On May's pictures, I used the Firebug extension in Firefox to look at the Javascript in the page with the picture on.  This is unformatted, but Firebug tidies it up enough to find the url; The equivalent in Opera (Butterfly, which is built in, not an addition) doesn't do the reformatting.  I think to get a larger size, I would have to add something to the url, which the Javascript would do, but I'd have to decode the whole lot to work out what that was (though once done, always remembered, of course!).

I applied Firebug and muddled through until I found a .jpg. Posting photos here has been a problem for me.

In an Army barracks in South Dakota in the late 1950s, a buddy and I stayed up late one night going through magazines such as Life and Time, looking at photos and ads (adverts?) of women and characterizing each as "cute", "pretty" or "beautiful." I can't imagine I'd apply the same standards now I did 50-plus years ago, but your daughter is clearly a beauty, your stepdaughter-in-law was certainly cute.

May- it's awesome that you've gotten to meet up with Redball! Did you guys go on a run? :-D

Paul- great shots! the photo of you and your daughter is beautiful. Her dress is gorgeous and you look so dapper!

Linds- I am SO with you on the poofy sleeves. Nick and I went to the fair yesterday and got our (4th) caricature done. The same lady does them every year and we told her that we're using this year's drawing in our wedding somewhere, so she put us in "wedding attire", meaning that Nick got a bow tie and I've got poofy sleeves. :-P I'll post a pic of it when I get home from work so you can all see the hilariousness.  :wink:

Naw, not enough time and the temp at their arrival was about 80. You two get out here by Sunday for a repeat; hoping for three more as well. Hey, it's only an 11-12 hour drive!
And it was awesome to meet up with May and Eed.
You've heard of southerners seeing their first snow in the north? I've never been present at such an event. But May saw her first hummingbirds Saturday.

I've been getting my gym'n'swim on for the last six months in a big way.  Haven't lost much in terms of weight because I've put on a decent amount of muscle (not that visible really, I just had fuck all muscle beforehand haha!), but I feel a lot healthier than I ever have.  I've started calorie-counting this last week and realised just how much I was eating before.  I was looking through my old photos on facebook and ended up making this:

If I can attend next year, I'll be the photographer, since I expect to have zerozipzilch familiarity with the games. Haven't learned a card game since Canasta, haven't played board games since Monopoly and Parcheesi and no experience at all with role playing games.

The cool thing about GenCon is that people explain the rules to you for game demos and will play with you in case you have questions. Also there's a game library to test games on your own, which is nice if it's similar to another one you've played, but can be tricky if it's not. (One we tried to play we barely understood, but the rest were fine.) And the events tell you how much experience is required, so there's always an opportunity to find games you've never played before that are geared for new players.
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Barmymoo on 21 Aug 2012, 13:06

Yeah and state law requires that I get a 30 minute break and two 15 minute breaks for an 8 hour shift. The number of times I get those breaks I can count on one hand.
Mostly its that I wake up right before I need to leave for work and I don't get home until almost midnight. But I still won't be registered to vote by then.

The only thing that bugs me is it has weird built-in padded cup things. I don’t need any padding and there’s no support in them to go braless, so with a bra the material stretches and you can see the cups. Ah well.

Woohoo Linds! Congrats!  :-D The wedding planning world is fun, exciting, scary and annoying all at the same time. :-P My best advice to you- avoid The Knot like the plague and check out Offbeat Bride. The awesomeness in that community is unmatched. Except maybe by the awesomeness here.
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Lines on 11 Oct 2012, 11:38
I've heard good things about Offbeat Bride and the only good thing I've heard about the Knot was a free planner book that a friend got. Besides, it's a traditional wedding-type place and I am not a very traditional girl.
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Barmymoo on 11 Oct 2012, 12:09
What's the advantage of some kind of wedding planner group or consultant or book, as opposed to simply doing it yourself? I would imagine it'd help you make sure you didn't forget anything, but I think I'd feel under pressure to DO EVERYTHING GO GO GO.
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Lines on 11 Oct 2012, 14:35
It's a book where you keep everything, but like specifically for your wedding. Like a daily/weekly/monthly calendar book with slots to put phone numbers for all the people involved, pick up dates, etc. Not a book that tells you what you should do. I kind of know what I want to do already, I don't need a person for that.
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Papersatan on 11 Oct 2012, 16:33
The worst thing about planning my wedding was people expecting me to know what I wanted.  It is good you have that sorted.  I felt like, if I gave the florist my colors (in the form of swatches of fabric) and told you what sort of bouquets/arrangements I wanted I should have been good, but she wanted me to pick the actual kinds of flowers.  The baker wanted me to pick exactly how the cake would look and so on and so on.  I didn't care.  The few things I cared about I was stern on, but the rest, what am I paying you all this gd money for if I still have to make the decisions?

Thanks!

I can honestly say that's the first time someone has ever told me they love my hair. Although I can't really tell if you're joking (not that it would hurt my feelings). It's just a standard military 'high & tight' although I have a habit of pushing the maximum length for the top. They won't let me do a mohawk D:

I added a bit to my costume before Halloween proper.  I didn't get a pic of it all together, but it is as above, plus these leggings:

I've ended up going through a bunch of my old pictures. So, huge post incoming.

at eleven:
(http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u146/Zingoleb/DSC09570.jpg)
I was wearing fezzes before fezzes were cool.

At twelve I got glasses and a cat which I named Awwdabooboo:

(http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u146/Zingoleb/DSC08039.jpg)

the next few years resulted in me wearing a lot of black and being awkward and tall:

(http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u146/Zingoleb/EdtheGiant.jpg?t=1352489950)

I wore flip flops a lot. More than anyone ever should:

(http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u146/Zingoleb/11.jpg)

I found a car at some point:

(http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u146/Zingoleb/iPhotoiPhoto-mailtmp-0.jpg?t=1352490856)

(http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u146/Zingoleb/iPhotoiPhoto-mailtmp-02.jpg?t=1352490856)

Just a few days after I turned 16. My mother threw me out of the house; this is me in a greyhound station.

(http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u146/Zingoleb/DSC01099.jpg)

I ended up moving back to Tennessee after that.

(http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u146/Zingoleb/DSC05383.jpg)

I lost weight after moving back to New York around seventeen. I tried to spend time with family:

(http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u146/Zingoleb/DSC01545.jpg?t=1352492329)

I was in a band at some point.

(http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u146/Zingoleb/DSC01967.jpg)

At some point, I just ended up looking sad in every picture. I was still living with my father.

(http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u146/Zingoleb/Photo46.jpg)

I cut my hair off, and started living as a girl just after my 20th birthday.

(http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u146/Zingoleb/12-30-10_2233.jpg)

I lost about 80 pounds all in all.

(http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g387/YunaCorne/Photo2.jpg)

I moved to Washington, where I grew my hair out again.

(http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/375893_348939135192874_1035710375_n.jpg)

I got stabbed in the face not too long ago, and then in a fit of drunken pique, I cut my hair off. Results!

because she's a crazy bitch

she hears voices she attributes to god (which apparently told her I was going to kill her in her sleep), and looking back at how all of my interactions with her have gone I have zero doubt in my mind that she's borderline. she's done the same thing to my brother and also to my step-father.

ETA: I meant to caption this but posted and ran off and forgot. I've started wearing makeup again for the first time in a long time; I got tired of people asking me why my face was red. It's rosacea or something, I dunno. I do feel better about myself when I wear makeup though. The shirt is one I designed for our poker company, pretty pleased with it. Also, this is one of the first pics of me in a long time that I've felt okay with posting as-is. I used to Photoshop myself down a size or two. Losing thirty pounds has made a world of difference.

I didn't say I feel old, I said that the idea of getting older terrifies me. I'm young. I recognise this fact as true. But that doesn't stop the years from having passed by so goddamn fast that I feel like I'm hurtling towards death, that I could die at any moment, and I still haven't done a single thing I'm really proud of. I feel like I've barely survived, that I've somehow managed to half-crawl, half-drag myself to where I am today, and it can all be taken away in a single moment.

...wait, am I having a midlife crisis? I'm too young for this shit!

In the Disney photos? It's a pin lanyard. One of the 'must-do's' of Disney parks is collecting pins. Buy a starter set, and then trade the stock pins for all the cool unique ones that the staff have. I collect mostly Stitch pins. The three most visible ones on the R2-D2 hat photo are: a Stitch head, a maple leaf Mickey, and a 2010 year pin. I also try to snag a year pin for every year I visit, which is '10 and '12 so far. Never thought I'd be one to enjoy Disneyworld (largely because of the crowds, and not a big Disney fan), but it's actually pretty awesome.

Aw thanks then. They swapped my dingy white cast for a blue one. Too soon to go free arming it. That means 1 more show (http://artistdata.sonicbids.com/illicitizen/shows/new-york-ny-ottos-shrunken-head-nov-25-2012/945164) with castyMcCasterson. S'posed to come off before the next one (http://artistdata.sonicbids.com/illicitizen/shows/new-york-ny-wicked-willys-dec-5-2012/935780). At least I'm on the blue squad of customer service at work so +5 points for my team every Thursday. Life has definitely taken a strange turn. Not sure if we give too much of a dang or too little. I'm pretty sure it only matters to us. Heh. Big pond up here and all. Anyway, here's a pic from June when both arms worked but my guitar did not.

Also got my driver's license renewed. Pic on the left was me about 3 years ago. Pic on the right is the newest one - haircut, makeup, and 25 pounds lighter.

I had to take off my glasses for my passport photo, which is also my driving licence photo and happens to be black and white. I am so white I almost wash out into the background. The only dark bits are my pupils/irises and the bags under my eyes.

Come on now get on that with a wool dress, get some period shoes (vikingleathercrafts.com) with wool socks (the socks are hidden they can be modern). Get yoself a nice lined wool cloak.

Actually if you are interested I have a friend who makes really really good garb for fairly cheap. I picked up a cloak for my lady for $60 (normally they're a bit more but she has budget fabric sometimes).
Her website is www.tailoredtunics.com
I guess you could let her know that Rafiq sent you there too.

Thanks guys :) This truly was the first DL pic I've gotten where I wasn't like "... the hell, guys? Why didn't you tell me I was making that face?" It's also, I think, one of the better photos of me in general... dunno what that says...

And Jace - I know, I know! Money's tight right now but I think I'm going to have to pick up at least one other piece because we have an A&S event in two weeks. But I mean - I'm in Alabama, it really doesn't get cold enough for us Meridians to own much cold-weather garb! It was especially embarrassing this weekend though because (as the tabard denotes) I was heralding so I was conspicuous all day long... plus I'm kind of a Greater Officer so I gotta get something nicer >_< I did change for court, at least. Aaaanyway - I bookmarked that site, she really does have good prices. Thanks!

Not as flattering a pic, but here's me doing my thing (sort of - I'm not a herald, I was just helping yell schedules):

The thing I really like about Ilsa is that you can just be like "hey this is where I live and this is what I'm looking for" and she pretty much knows what fabric to use.
I wanted winter fighting pants, and she made me a pair of salwar out of a nice cream colored wool but she then emailed me letting me know that they might actually be too warm for fighting and did I want linen instead because she was concerned with me overheating, even in the Buffalo winters.

So Youghal has some of the oldest examples of town walls in the country, dating back to the latter half of the 13th century. Steps have been taken to preserve the walls. The following photos are from a section of the wall around a Church of Ireland church/graveyard right next to Myrtle Grove, where Sir Walter Raleigh lived. (Incidently, Myrtle Grove is supposedly where a servant of his threw a bucket of water on him believing him to be on fire - he was smoking a pipe).

(http://i246.photobucket.com/albums/gg111/PaulC1984/IMG_0150.jpg)
(http://i246.photobucket.com/albums/gg111/PaulC1984/IMG_0149.jpg)
(http://i246.photobucket.com/albums/gg111/PaulC1984/IMG_0148.jpg)

Then there's this section:
(http://i246.photobucket.com/albums/gg111/PaulC1984/IMG_0147.jpg)
The recess in the wall was traditionally where a pauper's coffin was kept. If someone died and they weren't able to afford a proper burial, they would be put into the pauper's coffin and kept in the wall until another funeral. The coffin would be taken to the open grave, where the person would be wrapped in a shroud and buried. A little gruesome, but perhaps better than putting them into a Potter's Field. Occasionally, the family of the other person would offer a small marker in commemoration.

Last photo.
My hometown has a rather dubious connection to one of the more prominent figures in British history, Oliver Cromwell. The story goes that during the winter break in his campaign in Ireland during 1649-1650, Cromwell stayed in Youghal and left via the town when Charles II landed in Scotland. The only seaside area of the town wall still intact is the arch, commonly known as Cromwell's Arch.

Wood core and I practice with a shield destroyer so I don't worry about repainting them after the first time since I just assume that it'll be destroyed first.

I've spent a silly amount of time looking through everyone else's photos, and enjoying all of them, so I figure it's only fair to share my own.  It's a bit of an old one (I've grown my hair out back to my natural brown, but I admit I miss the pink).

Thanks, all  :-)

Sadly, I don't have the piercing anymore - I retired it because finding a job was becoming too huge a pain in the ass and I needed to pay my rent.  Then I got laid off anyway, so a big fuck you to that job.

I've been trying to work up the courage to talk to my friend's artist about designing a tattoo.  While I don't have any of my own right now, I do love talking about them and enjoying them vicariously through other people.

I once went to the hospital in Leuven for a meeting about a computer system.  When the person we were meeting arrived, he saw my companion (a salesman), swore in Flemish, and left.  I then flew back to England. 

I had also been unable to set up the demonstration I had taken because it was on a 9-track magnetic tape, but it turned out that their computer had a 7-track tape deck.

It is, and my guess is that it's a leftover from the Ottomans, which of course was born of the ashes of the Byzantines. It's also one of the myriad petty bones of contention in Serbo-Albanian relations.

I hate it when artists smash their instruments. Seems ungrateful to the instrument and to the person who made it. If you want to stop yourself from playing it smash your own damn fingers. Much more metal.

This is why watching people smash their instruments makes me angry. Also I know they're inanimate objects but I always feel like instruments have personalities, so watching people smash their instruments is like watching someone beat the shit out of their best friend for no reason.

No, for sure. I hate smashing instruments. And I pieced together that Jazzmaster, so I want no harm to come of it.

But. I wanted to do a Paul Simonen thing, since London Calling is my favorite record of all time:

So I was in San Diego this week and was out to dinner when my kid starts texting me that the Aristocrats were playing that night in town. Since the bass player, Bryan Beller, is an old friend, she really thought I should go. Then his wife Kira started texting me asking me to come down. So I did and surprised the hell out of him when he got off stage. Neither of us had any idea the other was in town that day.

Left to right, Kira Small (AMAZING voice, check her stuff out), me, and Bryan Bellar of Aristocrats/Dethklok/Steve Vai and numerous other musical ventures.

I've been rather bored today. So I decided to attempt to put up shelves in my bathroom. Here's a look at most of what I wanted to fit on the shelves.

Guys. I put up two whole shelves. They are holding weight. No one was injured! I am proud of myself. Also it might be a little sad that I'm proud of myself for this but I am clumsy as fuck and the last time I tried to hang something on the wall I ended up leaving 6 holes that definitely did not need to be there, and I had a panic attack and hurt my arm. So! This turned out better.

I've always wanted to order a dress from eShakti, but it's taking me a while to realize that a nice splurge every once in a while is worth it if it actually lasts a long time. The $100 leather boots I bought 3 years ago are finally starting to show signs of wear and tear.

I was considering buying a fancy white swing dress for our rehearsal dinner. How long did it take for your dress to be made? I saw that if you register with them, they give you a $25 coupon.

(1) The forum software is set to limit the size of displayed photos when you post them (by adding dimensions to the tag), if they would have been large enough to disrupt the layout on a typical desktop monitor.

(2) Limiting the displayed size doesn't alter the amount that has to be downloaded.

CloudFlare will not affect anything being loaded from other sites, unless they use it too, of course. In any case, loading is not slower, but changes due to editing a page may be delayed by the caching. However, as the forum is a dynamic site, this is unlikely to be important, as it won't be cached as much as static pages will be.

Back in April of 2000, I bought my first digital camera, a cheap-a$$ Epson that had all the photographic power of what you could probably find in your iPhone today. After I got the batteries in, and got the card installed and everything, I took the following picture:

Post by: Zingoleb on 04 Apr 2013, 11:44
just as a pedantic aside

a compliment (with an i) is a statement of praise.

a complement (with an e) is something that goes together well with something else.

so i might compliment you on how your hat complements your outfit, see?

also ridiculous face for the photo thread

Its not a picture of me but its my new shield after one practice, this is pretty much going to be my heraldry too once I get it registered. This shield is much larger than the last and while its a bit heavier (my arm is sore from that) the extra protection is definitely worth it.

A friend from ROTC stayed at my place for a few days while she's PCS'ing, and we took the swords down to play with.  Since we didn't have full protective gear, we were feigning attacks for the most part.

I'll look for some better pictures, but here's a fun one.

Back in...2011 I think, a storm decided to be all "hey bro i heard u liek trees' and so I got visited by the tree fairy!

and by that I mean a tree fell on me and my car.
(https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/316895_1566652823971_412176220_n.jpg)
(yeah that was before I started transitioning)
Also no, I was thankfully standing outside of the car on the other side of where I'm standing in this when it happened. So for the most part all I got was some nasty bruising. This was taken by a photographer for the city paper after the ambulance had already stopped by to make sure we were okay (friend of mine was with me and got hit too), and I was salvaging what I could.

I have no idea how to do that but i know its possible  :psyduck:

If you have the Javascript skills, you might be able to implement something in Greasemonkey (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/greasemonkey/), possibly finding inspiration in a script repository (http://userscripts.org/tags/greasemonkey).

You'd need to make your own replacement avis from the pictures of users that you've found, to make them suitable for the 100x100 space they will be fitted in (and to make them small enough that the speed of displaying pages isn't too compromised.  Rather than making a list of replacements, just give the files the name of the user, then the script can do the replacement if it finds the required file exists, and not otherwise - easier to update and maintain that way.

Firstly, Unicorn looks cute as hell in this photo.

Second of all, this photo's composition and pose makes it look like a story from one of the shitty gossip rags they have over here like Take A Break where the cover is 'I carried my father's rape baby - with him in prison now I'm loving life' or something.

i was actually just bored of watching dolphins and was chilling in the window when a neko came up and was all 'hey i'm here to take your picture' and i was all 'okay let me put my cute face on' but failed at that instead

Unicorn, ever heard of the Streisand effect?

yes but i don't care if people see my panties.

So I made a gambeson a little under a month ago. Sleeves were too short and too tight in the elbows. Bought fabric to make a new gambeson. Realized that the body of the first one is fine. Tore off sleeves and made new ones. Much better, although a little tight in the left elbow, but not too much of a problem.
Fits like a goddamn dream.

a while back, my band played a show at this place called Mojo Lounge in Fremont, CA with a band called Piranha Party. They're friends of ours and we love sharing bills and hanging out with them. It was just the two bands at this show, and we played first. After Piranha Party's set ended, I borrowed lead guitarist Adam's Jaguar and started playing "After Hours" by the Velvet Underground. Keyboardist Emily decided she wanted to sing with me. And somebody decided to take a picture!

Unicorn...your beautiful curls are all gone.  :cry: *sniff*

yeah, it's p. tragic. i don't like my short hair. but it's already starting to curl up at like an inch long, so who knows! i get to watch my hair grow out for the first time ever.
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: lepetitfromage on 03 May 2013, 13:07
Thanks everyone! And yeahhhhhh they've definitely taken up way too much freaking time. I think there are probably 40-50 flowers in each bouquet. I started dreaming about folding all that shit.  :-P

And Unicorn- I will so make you some after the wedding insanity is over! Maybe not sixteen.....but some.  :-D

I'm trying to figure out if I should cover the little center holes with buttons in the same color as each flower or if doing so would just push me over the edge.....still gotta do corsages and boutonnieres too. Oy.
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Papersatan on 04 May 2013, 00:00
I think buttons would look super cute, but they look fine without them, so if it is a lot of stress, don't worry about it.  Or maybe a compromise, and put button on just the un-patterned flowers of each color?

Well I had mine changed for good reasons. First of all I still had a gif of Goebbels applauding and hodgy beats requested I change it given the forum's more chilled out tone now, so I obliged.

Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Jace on 30 May 2013, 11:16
Well, most of my injuries actually come from getting hit in unarmored spots or places between my armor. Like my buddy Enzo got me with a really good shot on the shoulder that landed between the plates on my gorget (neck armor that has a bit of shoulder coverage) and the spaulder cop (armor that covers the point of the shoulder and upper arm). There's a bruise there, but it'll be healed by the next time I fight (two weeks, I work next week). The only really lasting bruise was the hit to my unarmored shin by a shield, which is a fluke.

That's kind of a curse for me. My right shoulder dislocates rather easily, but can't be relocated without a certain move which requires four people. One holds the upper body, one holds the legs, one pulls the arm downwards from the hand and the last one pulls outwards from the upper arm with some sort of cushion. The docs call it "green", idk why.

I wore gray raver pants and a white shirt to mine, and my hair was a weird blueish greenish color.

i'm staying at my friend's lakehouse and i ran for the lake and just jumped full bore into it

it was about what you'd expect from jumping into a lake in the pacific northwest: very cold, very wet, and very green.

it gave me tentacle sideburns.

Congrats and best wishes, Welu! That's awesome news.

I played a show in a friend's backyard barn a while back, and another buddy of mine took a pretty good picture of me playing what I assume was either "Color Wheels of Evil" or "Red Rat Bucket Dirt Grave". I do wish someone would get one of me looking sorta toward the camera though. That never seems to happen, even though I can't help but stare at it sometimes.

Great fit on the dress there, Linds. I've seen many people who, in the most expensive dress they will ever wear, still don't get it to fit right and you are not one of those. Helps that it's a really nice dress too.

Hey, all the brands widely available here, but not in the US (though relatively expensive here as well. I only had a Romeo y Julieta Mille Fleurs once). I feel bad for you US citizens. Officially you're not even allowed to own Cuban cigars even when you're abroad. But who could check for that anyway.

Are those Dutch "smoking kills" stickers on the rolls on the right?
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: GarandMarine on 24 Jul 2013, 10:19
Actually Romeo y Julieta are quite popular here, they're just sold/made in... somewhere not Cuba for the U.S. Market. (If you believe that shit) Excalibur cigars were my brand till I quit though, nothing like a Churchill and a comfy chair.

I have definitely smuggled a Cuban cigar into the US after buying it duty free in Munich. Fucker was like $60 for a single cigar. Fuck the embargo, man, it hurts a lot of innocent civilians and obviously hasn't stopped Cuba from existing for the 50 someodd years we've been imposing it.

Pictures from the battle on Thursday. This was at least 60 minutes in since after the 60 minute mark I was getting water and noticed that the leather around the back and sides of my helmet started to come off so I did a quick field repair and tied off the sinew stitches to get me through the rest of the battle.

I went to a party my last week in Colorado. It was on a small island in this beautiful lake

(http://i1009.photobucket.com/albums/af217/andersbe/IMG_02921.jpg)

I went to Michigan for the coastguard festival and as a tradition, went to this amazing corn dog place.

And then I took a lot of pictures of boats

This isn't all that recent, but I saw this photo in my library and I really liked my hair in it, so I decided to post it.

There is a movie called "Babies" which, un-narrated, follows 4 babies through their first year of life.

I see babies every day I'm at work. It makes me want to have them now until I hear them screaming and then it's all:

Babies are cute when they're happy. They're kind of terrifying when they're not. Then they get older and they're even cuter, but the temper tantrums are even worse, and then whoop one of you is going out of a window and you can bet it's the one that's screaming. Which may or may not be you.

(Don't get me wrong, I love kids. I wouldn't work with them if I didn't! :laugh:)

you should all watch "Babies."  It is an interesting look at how children are raised around the world.  The four families were obviously chosen for their contrast, so even un-narrated it seems heavy handed sometimes, but I think it works.  I think the Mongolian baby sections are the best.

Mongolian baby cannot be held back by walls s/he just wants to roam free.  FREEEDOM!

(for real though, at one point this baby is just crawling off into the fields, seemingly unsupervised.  You all should watch it, it's not just a movie for when ovaries get sad.)

I have painted minis for a decade and for about 3 years of that I've done it for money (I still would but the market for it up here is kind of shit). Apple barrel are great when you're starting out and suck but at some point you'll want to move to citadel, vallejo, or another higher end acrylic if you want your stuff to look good. Apple barrel will crack or yellow over time and occasionally chips and rubs off much easier when played with or handled.

I guess apple barrel paints are okay for terrain, which is all that I use them for.

Oh the paints are not mine, the guy who wanted me to paint his guitar just gave me the guitar plus some crappy materials to work with, it's sometimes nice to make due with what you have... That said, I'm glad I brought some paint brushes on my own because his were terrible. I have a proper studio space (with a desk) and good quality paints where I usually reside.

On holiday.  We stayed in a village north of Lucca.  From one end of the garden (the whole plot is 14 acres) we had this vista:
(http://cassland.org/images/EG/Vista.jpg)

It's usually hazy, but the day after a big thunderstorm was was clearer than I've seen there before, so we could see Corsica (the shape behind the obvious island):
(http://cassland.org/images/EG/Corsica.jpg)

and Elba (the shape on the right, behind Pisa and Livorno):
(http://cassland.org/images/EG/Elba.jpg)

If you look closely at the image of Pisa, you can see the Leaning Tower (which is 25 km away).  Here it is cropped out of the above picture, which was taken with my longest lens (210mm APSC = 315mm equivalent):
(http://cassland.org/images/EG/LeaningTowerDay.jpg)

and the same view, handheld at night:
(http://cassland.org/images/EG/LeaningTowerNight.jpg)

To prove it was a holiday, here are my grandchildren sitting against the cathedral in Pisa after we discovered they can't go up the tower until they are 8:

Ah, but when the shave grows out a bit, it feels like velvet...

You may also find that more grows back.  The finer hair from the thinning follicles were probably getting broken and pulled out by the length you were keeping.

I will never not be happy with my Geek Life tattoo. It does, however, need some touch up work. Never got a touch up after it was done and I gained close to 100 lbs (and lost a a good chunk of that) during the interim. Not terrible, but I need to have a period where I have some spare money to do it. Also, I think I've definitely confirmed I like it. It is, however, a very weird change to get used to. There are some nice advantages, and disadvantages, to it though.

Pros:
A nice cool wind on a bare scalp during a hot day feels fantastic
No worrying about eating my hair during a meal
No untangling hair in the morning
In general, I'm a lot more comfortable during hot days
My ear jewelry will never be hidden by hair

Cons:
I really loved having long hair in general
Having Vitiligo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitiligo), I get sunburned ridiculously easy. A sunburned scalp sounds like it would be miserable
This means I need to learn to not hate hats. Probably going to try and find a newsboy I don't hate
Ladies seemd to love playing with guys long, wavy hair

Also, Kat is desperately wanting me to grow it out for a few more days so she can pet the velvet fuzz. I might not do that.

Edit: Also I think that both the long hair and shaved scalp go equally well, though differently, with the goatee. That will never be shaved.

Urrghhhh sunburnt heads are the worst! I decided to get one braid put in my head while we were in Jamaica and the only part of me that didn't get any sunblock was the actual "part" created by the braid. It was SO friggin painful.

As a side note, I've recently discovered that 90 SPF sunblock actually does exist. And it does a damn good job! Invest in a bottle of that stuff, and you can continue hating hats if your heart so desires, without suffering the painful consequences.  :-D

There is absolutely no point using anything above 50SPF sun cream. In fact, it's not legal to sell it in this country because it is misleading - 90SPF is no better than 50. If you use 50 properly, it provides 99% protection again UVB, and no sun cream properly protects against UVA anyway so you still need to keep out of the sun. 30 is something like 98% - a negligible difference.

If you want your sun cream to be more effective, apply more of it. Most people only use 1/4 of the recommended amount, meaning that they get about 1/3 of the potential protection. You should still stay in the shade and cover up as much as possible, because you're still at risk of cancers and radiation damage even if you're smothered in the stuff.

I have a friend who is a PhD bio-chemist taking a break in her medical degree, and who happens to have Albinism, so she is pretty passionate about this stuff.

Hmmm. I heard there was no difference but Nick didn't want to chance it while we were in Jamaica so I sucked it up and bought the 90. Last thing I wanted was to buy the 50 and have to hear him complain about getting burned. And it was the same price, so I figured why not? Only applying once in the AM each day, I didn't get one speck of color for the whole 6 days we were there (except on my non-lotioned head) and we spent all day, every day in the sun.

I've used 50 and been burned before, so it made sense to me that 90 was "better". Maybe we got a defective batch of 50SPF.  :?

That must be why the one my wife bought the other day was labelled "50+".  And in what sense is it "misleading"?  If there is a standard for what these figures mean, and the products meet those standards, how is this misleading?  (If there is not a real standard, then the figures are misleading at all levels, of course.)

Um, 98% to 99% is not a negligible difference.  What matters is what gets through - 2% versus 1% is twice as much.  If someone is still burning on that 1%, then halving it to 0.5% by using a factor 90 (I presume that how the factors work) is not pointless.  If it's unreliable because of ineffective use because the instructions are not followed properly, or are inadequate, that's a different thing again.

But your comment about UVA may make this all moot (making the figures meaningless, in effect).

In my case I'm actually considering trying out physical sunscreen rather than chemical sunscreen. The problem is that the physical sunscreen I'm interested in isn't available in the US, but it might be worth it to import it and see how it works for me.
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Papersatan on 26 Aug 2013, 13:24
I think the issue with sunscreens of higher SPF, is that you usually need to reapply frequently enough that the coverage doesn't make a difference. 

The formula I always learned was that when properly applied you are protected for the time it takes you to burn times the spf number.  Example: 10 min in direct sun x 50 = 500 min or over 8 hours. The problem is your sunscreen will not last 8 hours without reapplication.  Even water resistant varieties will need to be reapplied, particularly if you are sweating, or swimming.   In this respect spf 90 is no better, because it still will have worn off.  However, if we are all underapplying, then there may be a difference in the actual protection received from a thin layer of 50, v a thin layer of 90.

When I see guys with shaved heads, I always imagine them in saffron robes. Yes, even Jason Statham (coming to a cinema near you in Transporter 4: Nirvana Or Bust, co-staring an actress with large breasts).

As for sunscreen, wear a hat! And a proper hat, not a baseball cap that doesn't protect your neck, ears, cheekbones etc. Seriously, I see so many older white Australian men with deep scars and obvious skin-grafts all over their heads and faces. And nobody looks good with obvious chunks of their ears or noses cut away. An advantage of being Asian, and living in a Chinatown, is that nobody thinks twice if I wear a douli (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conical_Asian_hat), or carry a sun-umbrella. It would take a self-confident Western man to do either...

That's why I am not ashamed to wear a sun hat that covers most of my shoulders as well. I burn easily and I don't fancy getting skin cancer. I tend to buy SPF 50 only because SPF 30 is only ever good if I'm outdoors less than 30min. Which is pretty much only when I take kids onto the playground at work and I stand in the shade as much as possible anyways, so who cares.

Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Barmymoo on 27 Aug 2013, 11:37
Kat explained it better than I did - what matters with sun cream is putting it on enough, and frequently enough.

Misleading because even SPF 100 would not be 100% effective. The difference between SPF 50 and SPF 90 is so small that it is in effect non-existent, and yet people would believe that 90 was better and be prepared to pay more for it.

But yes, the UVA issue makes it all meaningless because sun cream does not provide complete protection and might encourage complacency. Kind of like how some people argue that wearing a cycle helmet encourages some people to cycle less carefully.

The photos are tastefully blurred, and acceptable (as tagged and spoilered) in a European context; a US mod may feel that more caution is required for a largely US audience, perhaps.  The applicable rule written by Jeph is:

IMAGES: Porn, gore, and other offensive material will get you banned. Immediately. This is not the place for that kind of stuff.

And just possibly (with regard to poking the mods with a stick):

This isn't Slashdot or the Something Awful Forums. Don't be a jackass.
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Barmymoo on 04 Sep 2013, 08:52
As a general point, though, this forum is not a place to be posting photos that you would be uncomfortable having appear elsewhere. For instance, if you wouldn't post it on Facebook (ignoring the fact that Facebook has its own rules about nudity), then don't post it here as we have no control over where things go after they've appeared on this forum. Even if you change your mind and delete the post, the photo might well still be roaming free around the intertubes.

I realise that where this boundary falls will be different for everyone, and that's obviously something you have to decide for yourself. But if it seems that there's a tendency towards increased posting of sexy, semi-nude or otherwise not-mainstreamly-suitable photos then a stricter rule might need to be introduced. You have been warned :police: :-P

Tl;dr: Make sensible choices, people, even/especially when on mind-altering substances (make sensible choices about that too), and don't turn this forum into a soft porn site.

Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Barmymoo on 04 Sep 2013, 09:19
I think basically if you feel that you are pushing what you think the limit is, then you probably should not post whatever it is (or potentially seek a mod's opinion). There may be times when the mod consensus is that something is inappropriate and the poster is surprised but on the whole I think we all have a similar feel for what this community accepts (even if some of us, like me, are personally more conservative and others, like perhaps Unicorn, are personally more liberal).

Does that make sense? Obviously if you know that what you're posting is against a specific rule then just don't.

Administrator Comment As far as this thread goes, what May said about pushing the limits is right. This post pushed them as hard as they will go.

No, you misunderstand me - I wasn't saying that your photo was soft porn. I was making a general request that people do not post soft porn here. If we thought that your post was pornographic in nature, it would have been deleted and you'd probably have been banned because that's pretty much the only rule that Jeph has: no porn, no gore, no assholery.

Your points aren't irrelevant at all. There's a bunch of new mods, I'm one of them, and we're finding our feet. As a team we're also figuring out where the boundaries are, and sometimes realising that they're not actually very clear (and sometimes they're outdated). Anyone who has any useful input is welcome to contribute to that discussion, although at the end of the day if Jeph were to ban discussion of penguins or something we'd have to abide by that even if we thought it was a stupid rule.

Man just seeing that hair makes me happy =) is it a comfortable wig?

Wedding photos are starting to roll in and this is the (public) album:

Regular Ordinary Swedish Wedding-Day (http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10152200100588916&type=1&l=df66cfc7e0)

We were very tired and sleepy:

(http://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/1234700_10152199794193916_1071434726_o.jpg)

She was oversaturated but hella pretty:

(also mischievous (http://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/546995_10152200493388916_1148538193_n.jpg))

Our union received the stern approval of the community:

(http://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/535889_10152200498393916_1760871888_o.jpg)

I received a hug!

I apparently looked like an overstuffed blue sausage but everyone courteously kept quiet about that. Also I didn't get any henna! But it was a beautiful day and the bride and our guests twirled and swirled through it like so many butterflies or little bits of wrapping paper :) All in all it was a mighty fine shindig but not doing it again

Hello thare, photothread. Figured I'd peek my head out of the art and music boards and post some stuff here as well :) Quick warning, most pictures of me are either from gigs or from viking/medieval markets, so yeah.
Anyway, here follows a few photos of me and/or of my bass (A few are venue-marked. Hope that's not a problem :) )

Secondly I got my completely rad scarf I ordered on Etsy from StarsSpikes (http://www.etsy.com/se-en/listing/112571771/pride-flag-scarves)! I'll spoiler it because it's 20 webcam shots that are only like 40kb a piece, so might as well have 'em in the sequence I took them real quick to show it off last night!

hmmm, no. Upon closer inspection, I think I donät have the same glasses - but they have the same form.

I honestly must say that I never really thought about it and the last time I was at an optician was quite some while ago, but gendered glasses are ridiculous. I want pink sunglasses.

It is a very nice pic, Jimmy. Your solo album cover? ;)

Valdis' pendant and scarf are excellent! Gendered glasses are ridiculous, but not really any more so than many gendered items. Obviously some aspects of men's and women's bodies are different and require differently-cut clothes, but women's feet, for example, are pretty much exactly the same as men's apart from being slightly smaller on average. Many so-called "women's saddles" sold in bicycle-shops are exactly the same as mens, except for the colour of the cover. Much the same applies to shoes:

Marketed as "women's".               Marketed as "men's".

Most of the time I'd literally hide from cameras[1] (http://i.imgur.com/nrMhe8P.jpg)[2] (http://i.imgur.com/iIiJyyc.jpg); certainly not smile at them. Gj, book. :-)

It's the nerves and arteries that get compressed, rather than the prostate.  My prostate is enlarged - it's an age thing - which you might think would make it more of an issue, but I cycle every day without it being any trouble at all.

So does my baby brother.  He's 10 years younger, so 42 now, 6'2" (~2m) and an easy 300 lbs (140kg?), so I like the term "baby" brother.   :roll:

His fave is a Fender 5 string fretless.

Global Moderator Comment  If I had given her an official warning, it would have looked like this.

It was a plea from me as a person. I'm sorry I don't like dead things, even taxidermy makes me nauseous. But apparently I'm only a mod, not someone who has been around a long time and expects people to not post stuff like this.

And apparently other shit happened and now she's banned and this is what I get for going to sleep.

ETA: Spelling because my phone is stupid.

Post by: nekowafer on 26 Oct 2013, 11:02
Unicorn is fine with being called she as long as we accept her nature - genderfluid and other terms that I am not going to toss around because I don't know much about them. Also Zingoleb was her original username.
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: pwhodges on 26 Oct 2013, 11:04
Unicorn was banned for a serious breach of the rules for which anyone would have been banned.  We try to apply rules fairly and uniformly to all members of the forum.  Any sigh must be directed at Unicorn's mis-behaviour.

Their account name (login) was never changed - only the display was changed.  I didn't know it would revert on a ban being given, and am actually surprised that the software does that - I consider it a bug.  I now know how to deal with it, though, and may change it back in a while.  [later: done, I think]

It's like May leaving the modstick in the weapons locker and asking politely that people not hurt her personal feelings with Jesus macros. Linds has personal feelings too and was scrupulous about phrasing it in those terms.

Global Moderator Comment The rules apply to PMs, too. It's entirely possible to be banned for abusive or harassing PMs and it's happened.

IMAGES: Porn, gore, and other offensive material will get you banned. Immediately.

Unicorn has not been banned for those images, though.  A trophy would seem likely to be OK, but if obviously gory, spoiler tags would be advisable.
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Loki on 26 Oct 2013, 14:42
Paul ninja'd me, but I am gonna post what I was gonna post as an addendum:

There is no rule against dead animals per se, as you can see by the fact that Uni's dead squirrel wasn't deleted. I would however ask that you put it into clearly marked spoilers (as per the "don't be a dick" rule that applies *always*) and that it contain no gore (http://forums.questionablecontent.net/index.php/topic,4161.0.html) and be not focused on guns (http://forums.questionablecontent.net/index.php/topic,27423.msg1056736.html#msg1056736).

it will probably be the same pic I would post to FB if I actually had an account.

This tall young man is one of my dearest friends, and he left for the Marine Corps at 5pm yesterday. He came to my work at 2pm (I still had another hour) and we took this picture. I am going to miss him, and I am going to keep the mustache/chops combo so he recognizes me when he visits after graduation :3

Sometimes pictures are stored the wrong way round with an EXIF field saying that they should be rotated; not all software honours this; if you process the image (e.g. to resize for a forum) without saving the EXIF data  in the new image, the rotation indication can be lost.  Your image has lost its EXIF data (I looked).

I can see where ChaoSera is coming from. EXIF stores a lot more data than you think, especially GPS data, which makes it somewhat scary if you post that information online.

But evil? I wouldn't go as far as that.

Exactly what Masterpiece said. Pictures taken by phone are risky to put online, that goes especially for young girls who decide to send naked pictures to whomever. If that picture finds its way to 4chan, you are in trouble. Tracking somebody down using the EXIF data and some facebook search skills is disturbingly easy.

But you can stop your phone from GPSing you, can't you? I basically do that all the time because I didn't want my location being broadcast anywhere and I assumed it used data, I only turn it on if I'm lost. Or does it keep doing that?

You can turn off your GPS, but you can't turn off the tracking via the mobile network and that's enough to give a rough estimate of your geographical position, which then gets embedded in a picture's EXIF data.

Hey guys, you can learn about how your devices work!

In my iPhone, I can turn location services (not just GPS) on or off as a whole, and if on can allow or prohibit individual apps from accessing it.  My iPhone is set so that I can use GPS when out, but my camera cannot get to it.

Android, sadly, only allows turning location on and off as a whole, but none the less you can do that.  In v4.3 and v4.4 there is code to allow controlling access to location from individual apps, but (a) you have to get an app ("App Ops Starter (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.schurich.android.tools.appopsstarter)") to reach it, and (b) Google have blocked this app in non-rooted v4.4.2 "because the code is experimental".  Google also stores your movement history if your device is logged in - you can delete that by going to a website (https://support.google.com/gmm/answer/3118687?hl=en).

You can be secure - but Apple are better at letting you be than Google are.

When people say "all phones have GPS" do they mean all smart phones? My little Alcatel OT 665 doesn't have anything that I can think of as using GPS. I realise it's possible to locate a phone based on its signals to the network but beyond that, do non-smart phones have any location technology?
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Masterpiece on 26 Jan 2014, 05:38
Mostly no. GPS technology got extremely popular with the second gen iPhone. It was available before then, but not in "feature phones".

That said, if you live in an urban area with plenty of cell phone towers, tracking your location is a piece of cake. And if you store cellular data, it's very easy to create a movement pattern of you.
A German politician once sued the German Telekom and requested access to his stored cellular data. He proceeded to give this data to a German newspaper which reproduced his movement and created an interactive map:
Click play to see him go about his days. (http://www.zeit.de/datenschutz/malte-spitz-vorratsdaten)

This is what scares me much more than the metadata in exif files. It's this systematic approach to monitoring the populace. If anyone wanted to dirty my name, they know everything about me. And I can't do anything to change that.

Post by: pwhodges on 26 Jan 2014, 05:51
And note that the UK has the highest ratio of CCTV cameras to population in the world.  Apparently less than 2% are state-owned (source (http://www.bsia.co.uk/home/bsia-cctv-number-of-cameras-in-uk)), there is one camera to 11 people (source (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/10172298/One-surveillance-camera-for-every-11-people-in-Britain-says-CCTV-survey.html)), and they amount to 20% of the world's CCTV (source (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-444819/UK-1-worlds-population-20-CCTV-cameras.html)). 

(The last two sources are the Daily Telegraph and the Daily Mail - make of that what you will.)

I sailed the great lakes.  We lived in Buffalo at the time, and had a 21' open cockpit wooden sloop for a few years that we sold and upgraded to a 27' racing sloop.  Sailed to Ontario and back many a time, once in a gale-force storm that got us halfway across the lake with no sails up.  Won our division in the '78 Great Lakes Championship, too. 

Most runs included the importation of several cases of duty-free canadian beer... some of which made it home.    :police:

I've got no facial hair, but I can show you how cold my room is these days. That's right, it's COLD

Well my bed is right next to the radiator, so even if I'm cold, I just have to snuggle in my bed.

Yeah it's freezing in my room too. Luckily, I have warm, cuddly cats.

Post by: Metope on 19 Feb 2014, 10:00
Yes! Not just inspired, it's a copy of one of his works. Here's a better pic, although it's a little blurry:

*Swoooooon* That is amazing.


I've been thinking about incorporating a few Miro inspired elements when I have enough money to start working on my sleeve. For whatever reason, the thought to do a replica never crossed my mind and I'm almost ashamed lol. Love it!
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: Metope on 19 Feb 2014, 12:08
Aww thanks guys! And yes, do it! There are some fantastic Miro tattoos out there. Getting a few elements over an entire image is a neat idea too though, maybe you could make an art mashup with several works from different artists?
Title: Re: Photos can be pretty cool
Post by: lepetitfromage on 19 Feb 2014, 16:31
Ooooh, that's a good idea too! I'll definitely be posting ideas/sketches/etc over in the tattoo thread once I have the moolah. :-)
