class work : )

Photography has always seemed intersting to me but has way to many terms to remember and little photoshop things to remember also! Were lucky I can do this basic stuff in class!

But today I did learn alot that I found very intersting and some of it even jerked my memorie from Video 1 a few years back... surprising, I know. : )

I found the most insteresting thing we learned to be about the different lences and how they could change how the "same shot" looked. Like the baseball game how from the camera behind the pitcher both the pitcher and the batter look the same size. When really there's like 60ft between them... it's amazing to me how a camera can do that. Also to my dad when I told him about it. I also didn't know there were so many different lences. That's nuts! & now I see where all my money payed to NESCom goes... hahah!

It blew my mind how pictures use to be taken... the work that went into taking those pictures is unreal. And it's also unreal how much detail they showed when back then. But the real topper about "older" camera's is that the Bangor Daily New's paid 20,000 for a camera that larry said basically stunk! For sure they didn't know it when they bought it but still that much for a camera any day, any camera... what were they thinking!

I also learned about flicker...yes until today I had no clue about flicker I always just use tinypic.com. It's awesome how you can put as many pictures on flicker as you want for just 24 dollars. I'm for sure doing this asap because god knows when & if my computer crashes there go all my personal pictures.

Today I learned about gain (has to do with the sound), the Navy actully being apart of the light settings & such, and also an important lession about the EDC... they don't fool around! Don't bring your stuff back late! EVER! I can't believe someone was made to pay 60 dollars. I understand the reasoning I just find it crazy!

So now I'm going to go to a yard sale and look for a camera that say "DIW or ASA on it, so it will be 20 year's old or older and worth some money. So I can pawn it then pay NESCom so they can buy a fancy new one. : )

More class work.

Tim Berners-Lee, Internet Pioneers.

I found this really really interesting and actually something that I think people should know, at least people who are always on the web! and of course NESComers. It's such a large part of everything we do here at NESCom.
I found all info about his past interesting but the thing I honestly found the most interesting is that you can contact him yourself. I just feel like that isn't really offered really at all in today's world. I guess kindness is just something that amazing me. : ) As I believe it will most people.
Also I found that 10 thousand hits a day in 1993 is so many! I know sites get so many more today but I didn't even know of the internet in 93 granted i was like 4 but I don't even think my parents knew about the internet. Plus access to the internet back them was so much more limited.
I also think it's amazing how many achievements he's had in his life and just the amount of achievements he's had is something for everyone to strive for.

class work.

Here are the link's to semi intersting but yet boring vidoe's we watched in class & for homework.
We also had to read a little history of the internet.

I found these a bit boring partly because I believe I watched them in Scott Taylors class but also subject just doesn't interst me. I love internet and use it alot of course. But the history of it... eh, I could do without. I personaly found reading the history better then watching it. It was so hot in class I wanted to fall asleep... But reading atleast kept me awake! hah. : )
I think it's really intersting how during an "era" we think we have the best tech. and that we can't think of how of anything that we could be more advantanced. but they always find something more advanced.
I didn't know that "button's" were inveted so long ago. During web design I thought they were so complex and kinda hard to do and to think that back during the 70's ,I believe, they were doing something like that, atleast starting it! To me that was the most interneting part! : )
& of course I love the internet for facebook, twitter, youtube and all those fun modern things! :)

Class work.

I'm taking a Web Technologies course this semester because we all know I could use to help with computers & the internet in general, pluss we get to learn alot of other neat things.
So this post is just for that class!

"Write about how you use the Internet in your daily life and why it is or is not important to you”
I use the web for many things: this blog (still needs a little touching up), army wives forum, email, IM's, facebook, skype, shopping, homework (like this!), so many different things, I'm sure I've forgotten something.
I find it very important. Not only for homework needs and research but also for social life in today's world, also it's a great way to find support among others who are going though a simular thing as you (forums). I find the web to be very important but I'm finding out right now that I am able to live without it... or atleast mostly without it. The internet in the dorms stinks! Our wireless is out so were back to the stone ages (haha) using "wired internet" but event that isn't really working great and cuts out alot. But still I couldn't see myself without the internet!

This could possible be true love.

Yes I mean the shoes & glits on the skirt. I'm head over heals in love. I need some!
