I like to think that I am fun and funny. That I say and do things to make people laugh because laughing is much more fun than being serious all the time. I like to laugh, I assume others like to do that too.
However, it seems to me that some of the things I do are more ‘ass-like’ than ‘funny-guy’. Recent example comes to mind.
I received a text from a friend that said “Hey, Lee. Think we can meet again soon?” My reply, which I thought at the time was funny: “Awww. You miss me?”, then sure we can get together. Fortunately the person who texted me knows me and I assume likes me and he responded “ha ha, When I can’t talk to you it feels like I can’t breathe”.
More and more I think I’m an ass and not funny. What is the dividing line? If people laugh at you instead of with you? People who mumble under their breath about you? I don’t know.
Either way, I’m going to keep it up because it makes me laugh.
Like so many others I have a LOT of digital photos. Somewhere around 782GB and 158,738 files.
The difficult part is that they are not all stored on my computer. If they were I could use Apple Photos or even better Picasa from Google. Both are really good photo management tools, Picasa being superior, but they are of no use if you don’t keep everything on your computer. I have a Synology Diskstation set up that allows me to back all my photos up and sync with a cloud storage tool, in my case Dropbox.
This article by Adam Dachis on LifeHacker convinced me to not use any of the tools but just use Dropbox. I’ve set it up now, and while it does take some effort to go through the past photos, the monthly backups are quite easy.
Give it a try if you have a lot of photos that are not simply on your computer.
