London Life - Sun in your Eyes

Good News Everybody, I've just decided to do some observational work.
Here's a conversation I caught earlier today while going out to buy some crisps and cut-price electronics from the German discount store.

Click to make big.

When I click any pictures I've posted in the last few days my computer doesn't open them but wants to download instead... do you get that too :S? What a nuisance!!!

Anonymous said...

yes, i get that, too
and thought it was a nuisance
but on the other hand this one is so brilliant that it's quite neat to have it on the computer :)


Viviane Schwarz said...

Drat!!! I'll look into that.

:) Thanks!

Arf! - First emailing posts stopped working and now this - I can't see any difference between the old posts and the new ones in the code. Why why???

Eric Orchard said...

Ah! It's happening to me too! Was this a real conversation? That's great, really funny. My friend Keram just translated my first book into German. It's funny what didn't make sense, birds can't "mew" in German.

I'll check on the blogger forum what to do.

Mostly real conversation, I distinctly caught the last bit, the beginning is reconstructed. - I really liked how she was saying "it makes you... happy", in a distracted mummy-explaining-something while not really having the energy and concentration right that second sort of a way. - I was the same when I was tiny, my mum had to drag me around until my heels wore down because I so hated going for walks. I liked being outside some of the time and going exploring by myself, but walks, no - it's quite hard-going when you are small and someone is holding your and ALL the time it seems so you can't pick things up and you can never stop and look at stuff and have to go much faster than you would and you don't know where and why you're going at all and it's all just pavement anyway. But what can you do, the urban environment is just not suited to letting toddlers toddle freely... aaah good to have grown up.

Ah, everyone's got vthe problem, they are working on it. Until it's sorted we're supposed to do this with the code that is automatically created to insert the pictures:

1. Replace "-R" with "-h".
2. Replace the image location folder (preceeding something like "s1600-R") with the folder in the second URL.

Viviane Schwarz said...

Ah yes that works.
The bit you have to replace is really just one bit of shlumpf between two back-slashes, not the whole picture link.

I wonder what does it? Must be something at Picasa.
