The Whole, Gruesome, Aureate Spyware Story!
28th April 2001
Found a new way of taking candid photographs, using the multi-shot mode on my camera. This keeps taking shots as long as you hold down the button. I tried carrying it around town at arms length, with my finger poised over the button. Outside, I managed to record various shots of the city streets - see the example shown below. The angle of the camera when held down clearly led to some unusually angled shots, but this was all experimentation - I wasn't after perfection. Here's also a looping animation of city streets I came up with.
Inside shops, I found the light too poor to get clear photos. The best one is below.

Write The Web is an example of a clear layout that I like to see. Plus you're straight into the content, and there are no annoying flashing banners. The icons used for articles are confusing, but I'm forced to think: Why can't more sites be like this?
Seems there's a whole new wave of hype on the net for this Spielberg movie. You can go to the official website and chat with the 'chatbot'. Or visit Write The Web for the lowdown on what's turning out to be a fascinating challenge people have taken up. Anyone wanting to know just why this movie is rather special should try this article. It's from a brilliant site I found called Upcoming Movies. Now that is good content.
