How to view my MMS logs on the moblog
to view my MMS logs
The Blog Engine doesn't allow for separation of a series of MMS uploads
by subject. So everything runs annoyingly together. And to complicate
things further, last photo taken is displayed first.
Thus, I've numbered the MMS uploads and indicated which one is last. To
view the MSS uploads, scroll to find the first of the series, numbered
#1 and read backwards.
The navigation bar is currently only at the top of the page and not at
the bottom. Just to make it extra challenging for everyone :-)
Sorry, hor. Is like that :-)
For past uploads, I've done a website
version of the mss uploads for easier browsing.
My experience mobloging through MMS...
At first I was a real clutz at it. Fumbling with the tiny dials on this
delicate thing they called a mobile phone that they lent me. (I'm more
used to my Very Manly Siemens which can withstand seawater, rain, hailstorm
and Falling Down from Very High Places). The clam-shell configuration
was really annoying as it meant I couldn't handle it inside a plastic
bag in the rain. It has no holder, only a lady-like strap that I ended
up biting between my teeth whenever I couldn't hold it. Some more, totally
didn't match the rest of my Manly Field Gear at all. It's just too cute. :-)
But eventually, I got hooked on it. As a photographer, it's great to have
something to take photos with all the time (though blurry and tiny photos).
And people don't seem to be as intimidated by a camera phone as they are
with my gigantic Real Camera.
It was wonderful that I could immediately share what I see and experience
with others. Life as it happens. The fleeting moments of meeting new visitors
joining my group, little bits of nature that surprise and delight, or
simply the clear blue blue sky and glorious sunshine.
I hope to visit as many of our wilder places as I can during the moblog
period. So I can share them with you. During lunchtime, the parks in our
wonderful city. On weekends, wherever I am guiding. And on my other trips
(usually at ungodly hours), whenever the light permits (no flash leh).
Do check out my uploads.
So do drop by the moblog. I promise to share with you all the wild sights
that I encounter every day of this wonderful place we call Singapore and
...and oh yes...a little secret...
I still haven't mastered this keying all kinds of long words in sms for
the MMS uploads. So I cheat. I upload just the photo first, then go home
and add the words on the PC. So sometimes, you might see just the photo
with no explanations. That means I'm on my way home yah?
an update on my experiences moblogging after
the moblog period.
After using it for the moblog period, I am quite impressed by Feeble Phone.
It survived drizzles, a fall from a Low Height, and generally being jostled
and abused in the harshest places possible. But I still prefer my Manly
Moblogging was fun, but on long long days after seriously hard field trips,
it was a struggle to have yet ONE more admin matter to deal with at the
end of the trip. Particularly since adding comments to an mms upload is
no trivial matter... see my views on the technical
and support issues of the moblog.
