An April Full of Goodies


Let’s go and explore! The internet has something to offer for everyone. Do you love to hike, cook, travel, craft, paint, quilt or perhaps … dance?

Hang tight because during the month of April, Inside-Out is going to take you to some of the best sites on the World Wide Web.

Do you need to get fit, get smart, get strong or get a job?

Want to play online games (by yourself or with a group), write books, design houses, take courses?

Do you have favorite sites that you frequent and think others might like as well? Let me know …

Time to get out of your ‘search engine’ comfort zone and try something new. This page from RefDesk has a page full of search engines that are divided into types and service. Check it out.

Stop using Google Search and check out these 2 search engines that give back to society every time you use them. Search and Give — sounds good, huh?

This Precious Moment


Make time to read a book!

Make time to read a book!

What one thing have you been putting off?

Reading a magazine, finishing a book, starting a blog?
Writing a letter, talking a walk, visiting a museum?

Biking at Copper Mountain

Take a bike ride -- right this moment!

Forgiving yourself for some stupid thing you did last week (or last month or last year?)

Why not just do one thing you’ve been putting off… think you can?

The lyrics below from Right This Moment by Scott Johnson sums it up.

This very moment is where your new life will begin again …

Right this moment, this very moment
Life is happening right in front of you.

Right this moment, this very moment
Life is changing and everything is new.
Right this moment, this very moment
Is the only place you can be.
Right this moment, this very moment

Contains every single possibility.
Trust yourself to find your way
Take a step out and seize the day…

Using your cell phone to take photos?


GPS receivers from Trimble, Garmin und Leica

Wikipedia

I love to take photos but was unaware of the risk involved when you take photos with your cell phone and post them online (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) Unless you go into the GPS settings and turn off the tracking option, the location of the photo you just took is visible to the public.

Take a look at these videos that sum up the risks and offer solutions to the problem.
