And So It Ends



I tried downloading the software on and, but the ActiveX software would not download. I found this to be very frustrating, that the sites I try to visit would not run and every podcast site I tried to open failed.

I finally was able to pull up one of the podcast, and I see how the library could use this in the library, in order to help someone learn how to use a new program the library has to offer and for patrons who just need a quick step-by-step on setting up an email account. I would use this to record stories for my son to listen to, because we sometimes make up stories and I do not remember them later, so this would be a good way of recording and maybe others would be able to enjoy them as well. This was nice despite some frustration with two quests; I have enjoyed this Tech Trek


Part One You Tube

I like to visit YouTube every now and then, in order view different comedians I don’t get to see, unless I go to my sister’s house to watch cable:( When I searched on You Tube, I found an old TV show Richard Pryor had it was a skit show like todays shows. I do think YouTube is one way to get information out about the library and all of the wonderful programs that exist. I also visited Google video and searched there. I liked it a little better than Youtube search, it brought up clips closer to what I was looking for.

When I saw this one I just loved it, I thought of my son and how the simplest thing makes him laugh. Enjoy.


Online Apps!

I tackled this quest and was able to post a document online, but I could not post it to my blog and seeing how it looks on other people bolgs I prefer to have it as a link on my blog instead. I would need to play around on with this more in oder to work it like Microsoft Here is a link to the document.


Wiki Wiki

I rarely use wikipedia, after I found out that the information was not guaranteed. When I do use the information, I double check to make sure it is correct.

I did find the Bull Run Library Wiki site interesting. I was drawn to the Search on the web section and went to the link What song was Number One on the day you were born and Math Resource.

I may set up a page soon.

Social networking

I am already familiar with most of the social networking sites and have an account through MYSPACE. The main feature I like about MYSPACE is being able to decide who views my page, so only my friends who I accept or invite can look at my page. I do not place to much personal information about myself on the internet for anyone to spy.

Social networking has been a way for me to keep in touch with family I do not get to see on a regular basic.

It is wonderful that libraries are taking advantage of this to promote themselves and their services.

My Photo Pick

I love fall weather and I would like to take a trip to Maine, so this picture covers both of my desires.

This is a link to the photo I picked.

Here is the summery that came with the picture.

While visiting T's family in the Boston area, we had to spend a few days at their cabin in northwestern Maine. I'd never been to New Hampshire or Maine, and only Vermont in passing. Apparently we hit the fall color time just right, and it is extra colorful this year. Lucky me! I took bazillion photos, which should take a while to go through and upload, but here's a start. This is the road just outside the cabin, Dead River Road, near the town of Stratton, Flagstaff Lake, Maine.
