Ex # 7 . 2

Of the four search engines looked at I found Technorati the most user friendly and will probably use this one when I want to go searching further. The other three search engines either took too long to load, had busy, busy fron pages or did not find the information called for.

Ex # 7 - RSS

Interesting but still learning to like. Without my instructor I would still be floundering. It would be really helpful in my line of work if a debt collecting link was available.

Ex # 6 - Thoughts on technology

Technology to me is a vast and scary scene which has me hesitating, closing my eyes and generally thinking "I cant do this". Had not worked on a computer until joining the library in 1994. Now facing the monitor is a daily happening and I can, within limits, go onto auto pilot for work purposes. Spreadsheets, calculations etc come into the equation and I whizz along quite happily but judder when faced with something new. Then I mastered the mobile phone and the inevitable text-ing. I am not much impressed with the truncated socializing introduced by this piece of technology - get steamed up when I spot a group of people sitting together in front of their lattes or drinks, totally ignoring each other, while they hold animated conversations with those who are not in sight. Why bother with flesh and blood when you have a lump of plastic clutched to your ear? So, I am still learning the pros and battling with the cons of my own making when it comes to the invasion of technology!

1. Chesil Cove - Night time long exp, 2. Over the mountains and the sea.....:), 3. Serenity, 4. Orphan

With much help I selected these four lovely images which, again with help, I am sharing. I am still on a steep learning curve which will, hopefully, flatten out before I drive my instructors to despair.
