I cleaned some of the little throw rugs and tossed them onto the stairs to take the rest of the way later. Minutes later Calla had claimed the stack as the new best place in the house. The noggin-scratcher is an added bonus.
I makes a great place for duels with the camera strap.
…meanwhile I was spending a lot of the day investigating the picture download issue. I finally went with Picasa on the portable. It is even faster than the old camera software and detects what has been loaded on its own.
It even has a funny automatic face detection that runs in the background. It seems to pick up pictures on the spines of books and on DVD cases from tiny images.
It looks like the slow load on Windows 7 is either a Win 7 issue or an issue with my camera’s interface. Window’s own program takes about an hour and a half to load. Other programs seem to get stuck and fail totally. I spent a lot of the day loading and unloading programs and wondering if I was waiting long enough before giving up.
This camera strap is mine!
…Not much time for the kitties, or much fun either. At least one of the computers is in a good mood.
