Buh-bye Typepad

posted by awelborn

No, no, don’t think you’ve got to change your bookmarks. I’m sticking with the blog, but I think I’ll stop posting photos on the Typepad photo albums. – Flickr is easier to use, plus you can do cool stuff with associated utilities, like make albums and posters. I put together an album of our Rome photos and total cost was not much more than the cost of individual prints plus purchasing an album – besides, all of the captions are already built in!

I have a few trip photos posted, but not too many. I gave my camera to Katie, who was going to Peru (no, that’s not a typo, and no, it’s not Peru, Indiana either. It’s the Peru of which the capitol is Lima, and she gets back tomorrow, along with David. And for all the fussing about the impact of technology on modern life, impact this: My daughter can go to a computer in her hotel, log on to an IM program, see me online, and IM me about her trip and how she’s doing, no long distance charges involved. I’ll take it.)

So, the photos I have up there were taken with my dad’s camera in Knoxville, and we’ll have to wait for Michael to post his photos for the rest.

By the way, for more on sites that help you produce printed photo albums, check out this recent Slate article – but also look at the comments on the article in The Fray, which mention various sites that the article neglects.

There is nothing I shall want
A couple of weeks ago, a memorial Mass for Michael was held here in Birmingham at the Cathedral. The bishop presided and offered a very nice, even charming homily in which he first focused on the Scripture readings of the day, and then turned to Michael, whom he remembered, among other things, as on

Revolutionary Road - Is it just me?
Why am I the only person I know..or even "know" in the Internet sense of "knowing"  - who didn't hate it? I didn't love it, either. There was a lot wrong with it. Weak characterization. Miscasting. Anvil-wielding mentally ill prophets.But here's the thing.Whether or not Yates' original novel in

Books for Lent
No, I'm not going to ask you about your Lenten reading lists...although I might.Not today, though. This post is about giving books to others. For Lent, and a long time after that. You know how it goes during Lent: Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving, right?Well, here's a worthy recipient for your hard-

Why Via Media
How about....because I'm lame and hate thinking up titles to things? No?Okay...how about...St. Benedict? Yes, yes, I know the association with Anglicanism. That wasn't invovled in my purpose in naming the joint, but if draws some Googling Episcopalians, all the better.To tell the truth, you can bl

Brave Heart?
I don't know about you, but one of effects of childbirth on me was a compulsion to spill the details. All of them.The whole thing was fascinating to me, so of course I assumed everyone else should be fascinated as well in the recounting of every minute of labor, describing the intensity of discomfor
