iPad Picture Frame problem

Posted in iPad on May 11, 2010 by Pat

I had a little problem with the Picture Frame function on my iPad 3G – the slide show would stop changing the pictures. If I tapped to bring up the unlock screen and then tapped again the slideshow would run for a few more images then stop again. The fix? A hard reset accomplished by holding both the power button and the Home button until the Apple logo appeared. I’ve found his fixes strange problems on the iPhone so I just tried it with the iPad.

At least it will actually go away after a 14 day waiting period.

Spring in the Willamette Valley

Posted in Driving around on May 10, 2010 by Pat

I was driving north on I-5 yesterday from the Eugene area and was enjoying the scenery. The fields were all green, there were lambs in the fields, and the clouds were towering, fluffy, cumulus. The only thing hurting the view were all the giant signs promoting candidates for the upcoming primary election.

Reactivating!

The propensity for Facebook to keep trying to make more private data public by default has made the decision to leave Facebook an easy decision. I am going to be deleting my Facebook account and putting my thoughts on this blog. My photo blog will still be updated but this will be the site I use for non-photography posting from now on.

Some Odds & Ends

Posted in 2008FallTrip on October 1, 2008 by Pat

Planned Distance Traveled: 1635 miles, Actual Distance Traveled: 2150 miles

Planned MPG: 18, Actual MPG: 20.7

Highest price paid for premium fuel: $4.799/gallon, Lee Vining, CA

Average price paid for premium fuel: $4.157/gallon

Best value for lodging: Best Western Antelope Inn, Red Bluff, CA ~$80 for a very nicely furnished room, right off I-5, near many good places to eat.

Worst value for lodging: I won’t say in a public forum like this blog. All I will say is it was a close call among three different motels.

The one place I wish I spent more time: Lassen Volcanic National Park

The one place I wish I spent less time: None, it was a great adventure.

Final thought: We have a wonderful Creator. How anyone can argue there is no Creator after seeing and experiencing what I have seen and experienced over the past week?
