UPDATE 2 pm 29 Jan: Thanks to 7 ad clickers, this morning’s grand total of 31 AdSense pennies jumped to more than $4 today. Much appreciated, and consider giving an occasional peek at an ad while you’re visiting the blog. I’m not in it for the money, but I’m not opposed to making my hobbies come closer to break-even. Yoo Hooo!
Doh! Murphy was right: whatever you want to do, you have to do something else first. (And the corollary is also true: whatever you want to do takes longer than you think. And costs more than you figured.)
I have no way to say for sure. I used a different kind of CD-R disk yesterday and the NEC DVD+RW ND-1100A built into my 3.5 year old Dell XPS desktop still gives me E800418ac: fixation error after it seemingly has copied files to disk. If I had a second machine and could try it there, I could rule out a Windows problem. As it is, I could put in a new drive and STILL not be able to move image files from 2000 through 2004 from the hard drive to disk storage. With the 16 Mb RAW images from the D200, I’m going to be needing to make room. Doh! Nothing on the web about fixing this problem that seems solid. Machine no longer under warranty. Doh!
Also under HELP WANTED: any Virginia readers who know about events coming up in 2007 where a starving author could pitch his books to a potential readership, please let me know. This morning, emails sent to the Galax Book Festival and the Fall for the Book festival at George Mason in September. I know there are others. Somebody out there in bookfestland might even consider a self-published author–ya think?
And I trust the Google Adsense ads aren’t causing a great deal of wretching out there in Fragments land. Heck, man, I’ve already made 31 cents! At this rate, I can pay almost 15% of my DSL charges per month! Click on a couple of those links, wouldja, so I can see if they make any discernable difference at all in “income”. Hmmm. Slow going. But then the continents have spread apart going only 1 millimeter every hundred years. I’m patient. If not immortal.
