This is the 2012 version of having that alarm clock radio in your cubicle playing KNX 1070 all day long...

Ever wonder how RC manages to capture these amazing pictures in my posts??? Well U can too...!  It's easy in Windows, to take a picture of anything you see on your screen, simply press:

[Ctrl] Control & [PrtScn] Print Screen Button



It's really old school Copy & Past before Control C & V...

You just capture a screen shot of your screen as you see it; so you can capture a image of a video you are watching, a PDF picture that you can't simply copy, a whatever...

Then go and open up.. OG MS Paint...



Do the regular [Ctrl] & [V] and you just pasted your screen capture to the Paint Program...

There you can edit, crop, and re-size your image, click Save, I like JPG, then I can upload it to Flickr or whatever image program you want...

From, there, say Flickr you can, right click to get the image, URL and you can then...

Click on the image button on you TI posting page...



see... what I just did there?  that would bring up, the  command... you can then paste your picture URL in between the {img}http://flickr...your picture url{/img}... and there you go...!

besides, giving us dazzling pictures of you computer, which I expect more of around here...!  You people with smart phones, cameras and Google image... Screen capturing is great for work...!

Your boring email to you boss and clients can now include any image of your choice...  How do you think I get the attention of my customers or owners with just text email...?

I discovered the website, Lifehacker this week... really neat, cool geeky how-tos & general tips... today's post caught my attention...

Nice step-by step on how to get that ICS look on the Windows 7 desktop...  I already got the wallpaper, Roboto Font & some Icons...  I hope to get some Clock Widgets by the end of the day... there is this thing call -working- that I have to do also...

Gonna put this out here... What are you guys using for corporate Video Conferencing?  One on one or group to group... or how about -groups- individually at their PCs talking to, some people(s), elsewhere... if that makes, sense...

But I don't want to have to buy video cameras for everyone...  the only thing I can think of is Skype, that can't be the only thing for enterprise... is there..?

Here is what Lifehacker tells me...

http://lifehacker.com/video-conferencing/

Cisco WebEx


GoToMeeting


Google+ Hangouts


TeamViewer


Join.me


I like the free ones, TeamViewer since, I already have it installed... & the whole remote desktop should be great for presentations...!

Not exactly sure of the hardware or software, but it's heavy duty stuff.  We have rooms set for video conferencing that include huge 80"+ screens, dedicated cameras controlled by a touch screen device with multiple windows onscreen to see between sites.  We have offices globally and there is no lag.  I believe we use Cisco products.

If a member would like to upload their photo directly to Talk Irvine they may do that also. Look for the button called "Additional Options" below the text box when you make a post. Click on it. It will display an area to attach a file. The photo will not appear in quite the same manner as it does in the step above but saves a little effort if you want.

jvna sounds like they use the stuff you see in movies or TV shows like 24 where the Prez conferences in with another world leader.

Just use a notebook with cam, put the cam window on a projector via dual display... it's ghetto but it works... although at that size, the person looks like one of those pixelated blurred out people that don't want their faces on Cops.

I'm actually just discovering the LAX website...

http://www.airport-la.com/

I made a LAX ran last night, and I'll be making another one tonight... I can keep track of the progress of the flight throughout the day; and time the arrival with traffic conditions, just right...



long gone (hopefully) are those days, where I have to find parking, fight the crowds, get out into the terminal and look at that hideously confusing flight board...

another way, using my Android is bettering my life...

anybody else with an -i- user care to share, any tips...?  see how I didn't even say who I'm picking up, from where, which fight or what "intimate" details if you don't care to share...

@rc: Whenever you wonder about what -i- can do, just remember this song from Annie Get Your Gun:

"Anything you can do, -i- can do better!"
