I've been strictly Linux ever since. I've tried many Linux varieties over the years but have finally given up distro-hopping since their extra efforts to be secure always bring me back to Debian.

If uploading multiple pictures you can just select the ďmediumĒ size button when adding. If I am just uploading one picture I select the same picture twice and again choose medium and then once uploaded I delete the duplicate picture

I don't quite understand the point of that, what the advantage to doing it that way would be.

I do this on my phone and itís easier for me. To use a image reducer you have to open the image, reduce, and save as. Then in my phone itís hard to tell the reduced image from the original.

So itís easier for me when posting to select a image or two from my photos and then when you attach them to you post it asks you what size to use. Medium works for me.

When adding just one photo I donít get asked what size to upload. So my work around choosing 2 pics

I had something of a head start. I was nearly 50 when I got my first computer, and nearly 60 when I got my first cell phone.

And before that I remember when phones had no dial. You picked up the receiver and waited until a female voice said, "Number please," then you gave her a 4 digit number, and she manually connected the call. Our phone was like this until 1960. Larger towns around here had dial phones before we did, not sure how much before.

I did not make long distance calls when I was a kid so I don't know how that went. Communication technology has certainly changed the world, sometimes in good ways, sometimes not so good.

I'm hooked on technology, too, just the variety with multiple big monitors, a keyboard and a mouse. I'm actually a mobile application developer by trade, and I'm amazed at the kind of awful things people put up with doing on their smart phones, when the same tasks are so much easier on a desktop or a laptop.

I have seen postage stamps that are bigger than the screen on my phone. Now mind you, they were Meiji stamps, which I think are probably the largest stamps ever printed, but still, I prefer a monitor that is large enough so I can see details.

We are turning into a society that tends to ignore details and only really cares about the bigger picture, whereas I have always figured that if I take care of the details the bigger picture tends to take care of itself.
