Miles to go

Observe the Mid-Atlantic Tufted Freak, as it begins its annual migration north toward its ancestral breeding grounds. We may never know how it endures the rigors of this thousand-mile trek year after year, disconnected from all Internet access and subsiding a a meager diet of cheese sandwiches and Red Bull.

I've noticed that some of you clever peoples know how to make picture posts and things from your phones! I want to be able to do that. I'm sure I could figure out how if I looked around the FAQs and stuff, but...

*waves hands around frantically*

Look, just tell me how to do it, OK? Please?

I haven't figured it out either.

Copmuters are hard! Let's go shopping!

Anyway, hope you have a good trip and we'll see you when you return...

Safe (and happy) travels. (I don't know about the photo thing...)

Um, you take the picture, send it to me and ask me to post it to your LJ? Or do I need a paid account to post pictures?

Will check.

Won't actually be able to confirm I can upload pics on this free account untill I get home, as the pic area of LJ is blocked at work. And I know it is not what you are asking for. But I don't know the real answer, so I offer this as a back up plan.

Here's a start for you....

How do I post pictures from my cell phone to my journal?
This FAQ applies only to Paid, Plus, and Permanent accounts. To check your account type, please see your profile page.

Paid, Permanent, and Plus Account users can post pictures to ScrapBook from cell phones. First, you need to set up your ScrapBook account as well as your mobile posting settings.

Before sending a message, you need to use the Mobile Post Settings page to add the email address of your cell phone to your Allowed Sender Addresses list and to specify the default settings for pictures uploaded by email.

Creating a Message

This procedure varies with different cell phones. On many phones you can view the desired image and then choose to send it from the options or properties menu, or to compose a multimedia message (sometimes called MMS). After you've found a working method, send your message to the post.livejournal.com mobile posting email address. You may find it easier to save your address with PIN in your phone's address book, so you don't have to retype it.

If you have a Flickr account, you can upload photos from your phone and then have them automatically posted to your journal. Basically it involves configuring settings for an external blog so that Flickr can access it (http://www.flickr.com/help/blogging/#55) and then you just send photos to a special address at Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/help/photos/#33); anything sent to that address gets crossposted automagically.

Those Wisconsinites don't cotton to weirdos breading at all hours, y'all be careful now.

Ah, please be careful my dear ones. And please give our regards to your parental units. :)

Can't wait to see you two next week.

Love you!
