Things that have been happening over this week

No, not the obvious political and economic things (though we have been laughing heartily at the expected - and indeed actually stated - "Oh Despair!" of our esteemed pal Nick Matthews at Mandy's in Cabinet part III). These are more the everyday, conversational things that by and large occupy the mind of this blog:

Like Wongablog hitting FIVE years of blogging service to the public: my that's impressive!

Like it being 'Buy a Friend a Book Week' (found via Wongablog!)

Like Marie's pean to not heckling at comedy gigs and, by extension, not talking throughout music performances

Like the animated video for the Elements Song by the god of satirical song Tom Lehrer (found via lovely EineKleine Rob)

Like the forthcoming - okay, it's a long time till it comes but - focus on Science Fiction on the BBC Radio

And trying to sort out getting my pictures from my camera to my computer now that I can't find the discs to allow me to connect to a mac after using it on a PC. Grrr....

What - disks for a Mac - I thought it was all so obvious.

Problem is that my Canon camera isn't very mac compatible so when I connect the USB cable it doesn't recognise it as hardware from which it can download images...

Yes, I know: universal card reader needed...

George said...

Ah, universal. That's what I'd clicked to give a comment for! How about downloading a Mac driver for your camera??

Lisa Rullsenberg said...

Far as I know G I can't actually FIND a mac driver to make it see the camera (Canon Powershot 410 btw)

Andrew said...

I *think* that the Mac drivers are built into the ImageBrowser utility. Haven't actually tried it personally, though...

This may require more investigation than I have brain at the mo but ta!
