"Before you know it as the years go by, you're just like other people you have seen, with all those peculiar human ailments. Just another vehicle for temper and vanity and rashness and all the rest. Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

The First Picture From My Camera Phone

This is the first picture I took with my camera phone. It's a picture of a mostly empty glass of red wine that I had at a fancy schmancy Italian restaurant in Fremont. Posted by Hello



After all the grief I had getting things working yesterday, I have to say that once you have your stupid Verizon account(s) all set up it's pretty darned easy to go from taking a picture on your phone to posting it on your blog. Here are the steps I used to upload the picture you see here:


  1. Took the picture on my camera phone.
  2. Browsed to the picture in the cell phone's image gallery and chose to upload it to my Online Album.
  3. Logged on to the Online Album at vzwpix.com and saved a copy of the picture to my hard-drive.
  4. Launched the Hello messaging software recommended by Blogger. The software has simple UI that allows you to easily add your blog as a pseudo-contact.
  5. Started a message with the pseudo-contact (aka BloggerBot), selected my picture, typed in the text I wanted to include with it in my blog and hit send.
