A lot has been happening in the world of Woman Activated Networks . I continue to champion the cause of users baffled by their online experiences and applaud Facebook for its recent unerring upgrades and improvements . While I try to provide the mandatory three page response to all messages I receive , there will inevitably be some compromises at times and then those which just slip through the net. My apologies.
I received detailed instructions as to how to reprogramme my Smart Socket to reroute information from practically anywhere in the world. I don’t actually have a Smart Socket but, never mind, it is the thought that counts. I observed another example of noble thinking when I was offered hands on tuition to access a range of front end options for high end users. When it began, “Can you see the text underlined in blue? If you click on any of the text underlined in blue it will take you to a helpful website, “ my heart wilted a trifle.
One step beyond front ends are Offline Readers. The point of an offline reader is to reduce the amount of time spent connected to the Net. It accesses the services, grabs the specified data you are interested in and then you log off and you don’t really have to lift a finger. When it works an offline reader is an amazing sight to behold but they work best if you have a good understanding of the service you are accessing.
This week I am reacquainting myself with Elastic Reality, which was originally an industry standard software tool for image blending in the 90s. Now we have apps for that and Apple’s Photo Booth provides Elastic Reality without even batting an eyelid. With Elastic Reality these days we don’t ever have to think about the Render Full option. The video I have offered you is from its original concept. Now you can navigate a corridor at full pelt with no obvious escape and save the whole of civilisation from some mad cartel. In the hands of a visual arts expert Elastic Reality knows no bounds and the creative image possibilities really are infinite.
