Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

Not quite sure how to post these pix properly. I know that they need to be 800pix max in dims, but the upload function keeps on going on the fritz when I try to d/l from my computer. Maybe you can PM me how to do this properly... (pretty please)

I am no expert on uploading photos. It seems that many people upload to a website such as Imageshack or Photobucket and then link to it in their post. This gets round the size limits.

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

You could also use a more basic and easier service like imageshack.us. Do you have this photo from Zurich in a higher resolution, I'd be interested!

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

Near the airport - this was more interesting than the planes


Wildpark Langenberg - Langnau am Albis - the 2 "young" (6m old) bears playing in the water


and now some photos from a day trip to Bellinzona

















Hope you enjoyed them

yeah i'm using www.smugmug.com - they're not free - but they are awesome! and my photos get backed up to 3 other servers - so if i have a complete HD melt down then i can get copies of my photos back

mind you a melt down would have to be pretty big as I have them on an external HD on my mac, then on another external HD on my airport basestation and then on smugmug and occasionally i do another backup to another drive that is in the cellar

some might say overkill - but i don't want to lose my photos my kids etc. from the day they were born

There is no such thing as overkill when it comes to backups. I backup regularly to a single external HD and I consider myself to be vunerable.

If that was me, the plane would likely be deformed by now

There was a brief article in the newspaper about a small riot of radical leftists, else it must've been great! I wasn't there this year, though.

The riot took place in areas near the fest, but not in the fest itself.

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

A beauty parlour in Zurich's Kasernenstrasse that is having a hard time putting up with the French (or is it a service they are offering? If so, then this establishment is less a beauty parlour than an S/M joint.)
