The colors of Autumn are changing very quickly. Sometimes the light is amazing... I don't think I could capture it with my cameras. As we had dinner tonight, I watched out the dining room window, as the light faded from the glow on the leaves and color in the sky to grey and black in a matter of minutes. It was truly marvelous. And so was the conversation over dinner. Just as an aside, I think a civilized and interesting dinner hour is wonderful. I am definitely blessed.
I spent quite a bit of time on Megashot, today. This was fun, too. The site is quite fast. I believe Cyrus is working like crazy to get Version 2 designed, coded and on line, asap. There are a few glitches in the site since migration, but as the site will be a lot different on version 2 these things should not matter. (I can't believe I typed CITY instead of SITE in the above sentence. Yes, the site is like a city, inhabited by friends and as it grows, by people we only see in passing, through the Explore or the Contests or in members photo uploads, or other places. )
I ran into a small annoyance ... Java wanted to update... well hells bells, everything wants to be updated, constantly. I said No and googled this Java update thing. After reading some of the answers to my search saying its a virus... eeeek ... everything is a virus... I found a site that seemed to me to say what it really is... Java seems to have this checking thing running in the background and asking to be updated. The people on this site say you can disable this annoyance, and your computer will run faster. ok... I just left it at "no" for now. I have no idea what Java does, or why I might need it. According to the geeks on the site, that I tend to believe, it can be disabled with no loss but with an improvement to speed of the cpu.
