View allAll Photos Tagged Backup+Services

Have you heard the news? Flickr is trying to ruin itself again. I think their theory behind it makes sense. The overall quality of Flickr would significantly improve without those who upload their entire memory card. Making Flickr into a backup service was a stupid decision.

 

But to remove Free users photos beyond 1000 is just horrible. There are many amazing photos of inactive or passed away users that will be deleted. Much of their art will just be gone.

 

I don't plan to go anywhere as long as Smugmug doesn't totally ruin Flickr, but I hate that if I don't pay every year, 86% of my photos will be deleted. And all the old discussions back when that was a bigger part of Flickr. I don't go back and read that stuff often, but when I do, the memories with long lost contacts and early days of decade old internet friendships are fun. And sometimes I want to lookup some old information, like searching Green Pea Spider so I can identify that Araneus detrimentosus.

 

We finally hit 10,000 photos in the Arachtober group this year. And it looks like Fly Day isn't too far behind. But if a bunch of older photos are deleted, we will likely be well under the 10,000 mark in both groups.

 

Not everyone wants to pay to share photos. And they shouldn't have to. A limit makes sense. But 1,000 photos is pathetically small number. That is like a 4 gigabyte memory card worth of reasonable sized JPEGs. Make the limit on new uploads.

It's amazing how important it is to be electronically connected in this modern world, and how isolated it makes you feel when you can't access that connection. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing, but for many it's a definite reality.

 

BTW...in the last week I discovered just how nice it is to have access to public libraries...and their computers!!

 

Also...if you aren't backing up your files and photos, START! I can recommend Mozy online backup service...I am in the process of downloading ALL of the photos that I thought I had lost!!!.......^+^

When I was at the University of Denver for the CO Coalition of Land Trusts conference I came across this really cool reflection in the sky bridge over Evans Ave.

 

Image Notes: This is the first image I've shared publicly from my new Moto X smartphone. There's no real trickery at all going on here as hard as that is to believe. There was a spring snow outside but enough light to brightly reflect the space behind the window and since I stood close to the window my reflection created a bit of a window through almost like I took a multiple exposure to get this. But besides combining the frame with the passerby with the frame including car traffic I did nothing to alter this besides some basic edits. You can see the original unedited frames below in a Google Auto-Awesome GIF that was automagically created by the Google backup service.

Ongoing SmugMug flickr discussion.

 

Generally speaking I appreciate what SmugMug is doing. They can't keep Yahoo's promise of a terrabytes of storage for free, and they need to immediately and dramatically slash the size of Flickr's library to reduce the migration costs to the AWS servers. This is entirely reasonable given the resources they likely have and the fact that they are a low growth, low investment company who needs to continuously make profits to remain stable.

 

The problem is with *how* Smugmug making this happen, and how counterproductive their choices are to their stated goals.

 

Smugmug's deletion policy is structured to delete rafts of public 100-200KB photos from Flickr's early community in 2004-2008, destroying images and comments not replicable anywhere. Some of the photos to be deleted are from people currently inactive on flickr. Some of those people are no longer active because they are no longer living. Regardless of those people's current relationship with Flickr, there is a legacy that is due to be permanently erased in about a month, for what is frankly very little benefit to the storage and bandwidth situation.

 

Meanwhile, Smugmug's deletion policy goes out of its way to save things like 1000 of the totally private 8-15MB photos a random person uploaded into their second or third redundant, anonymous online backup service in 2017 pretty much only because it was free. Smugmug also continues to allow private photo backups on Flickr, just that now those backups will have to be in 1000 photo batches. This kind of Flickr usage has nothing to do with community and uses up considerably more space per photo, yet these photos are cherished while Flickr's community history is destroyed.

 

Most of us can agree that Flickr shouldn't be used as a private photo backup server and that there are many, many, many photos currently on Flickr that could just as easily be somewhere else and that would be fairly easy for their owners to move somewhere else if they cared to. It is easy to understand Smugmug's need to delete a lot of Flickr photos at this point of transition,

Texas State Railroad ALCO RS-2 Engine #7

 

From the TSRR website:

--------------------------------------------

Engine number 7 is the second oldest diesel locomotive operated on the Texas State Railroad. This engine was built in 1947 by the American Locomotive Company at their Schenectedy, New York, locomotive plant for the Point Comfort & Northern Railroad of Lolita, Texas.

   

The Point Comfort & Northern was owned and operated by Alcoa (Aluminum Company of America) and served their aluminum manufacturing plant at Point Comfort, Texas. This type of engine is representative of the first wave of diesel engines that started replacing steam locomotives immediately after the end of World War II.

   

This engine saw many miles of road service for the Point Comfort & Northern, carrying train load after train load of material all over the eastern part of Texas.

   

Finally, when the hardworking road switcher seemed to be heading toward the scrap heap, its career took an unexpected turn.

   

In 1975 the fledgling Texas State Railroad was looking for a diesel engine to provide backup service to its steam locomotives. The officials at Alcoa decided to donate the hardworking engine number 7 to the Texas State Railroad. This diesel is still at the Texas State Railroad to this day; pulling work trains, carloads of ballast and pulling passenger trains.

--------------------------------------------

 

This model is my first original diesel train MOC, and made her debut at the Texas State Railroad's RAILFEST 2010 where I was able to get a photo of her on the real thing. She performed extremely well.

Open the pod-bay doors HAL.

I'm sorry Dave... but I can't let you do that. You first need to authorize your phone, then create an online account (with credit card), then sync, then create your free online backup service, then sync, then create a hard password you will eventually forget, then set up your mail account with your phone, then... and so on..... Dave, are you still with me Dave? .... Dave?

How do I get this onto my iPhone?

There are a number of ways to do this, however I think the easiest and fastest way is to download Flickr’s free app. Within the Flickr app you surf over to my photo feed to view the images (if you make me a contact then I’ll appear in the flickr contact list). When you find one you like, just click the download button and save the image directly to your phone. Quick & Simple!

 

I don’t have an iPhone. Can I still use it on my phone?

As of this writing this image (960 x 640) should be large enough to be used as wallpaper with the Droid / Android, BlackBerry, Windows 7, and iPhone.

 

How did you make it?

This background was made using graphic design software such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Filter Forge, Genetica, Wacom, Alien Skin, Topaz Labs, as well as several other programs.

copperstoneclubbiz.com 813-321-7417 The one guaranteed way to improve the overall efficiency of your communication system is to opt for a virtual phone system. With a virtual phone system, you can avail a host of sophisticated features such as call forwarding, find me follow me, conferencing, music-on-hold, caller Id, speed dial, call blocking, auto- attendant, voicemail to email, fax to email, real-time call history etc.

 

There are four main technologies that make virtual offices work: The Internet, VOIP, Unified Messaging and Cloud Computing Technology. Unless you've been living under a rock, I'm sure at some point in your life you've used or heard of at least one of these forms of technology.

 

The Internet

 

Let's face it; the Internet is one form of technology that most of us cannot live without. It's a part of our everyday lives. It's a resource that 85% or more of small business owners use to run their businesses. The Internet allows us to check our email, host our websites, shop online, pay our bills and most importantly use various tools to provide services to our clients.

 

VOIP - What is it?

 

VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is a technology that gives us the ability to use phone services over the Internet. As a matter of fact, traditional phone lines are slowly being phased out as small, medium and large businesses are reaping the benefits of using VOIP systems. The main benefits of using VOIP are the ability to make long distance phone calls, hold conference calls, use caller ID, call forwarding and other features that traditional telephone companies normally you charge for are available for free. Isn't that AWESOME?

 

Unified Messaging Systems

 

Unified Messaging is a technology that works with VOIP systems and is a feature that runs virtual office phone systems. Unified Messaging combines the integration of email, instant messaging, fax, voicemail, video messaging, and text messaging technologies together for storage onto a single system. For example, with traditional communications systems messages are delivered onto several types of storage systems such as Voicemail systems, Fax machines and email servers. Whereas with Unified Messaging Systems all of these different types of messages are stored in one place. This feature simplifies the user experience by giving them one place to check for messages rather than checking multiple places to retrieve messages.

 

Ultimately, the premise behind creating Unified Messaging Systems was to have a place where all of the above technologies can be brought together onto one platform to make communication as seamless as possible.

 

Cloud Computing: The Revolution

 

Cloud Computing Technology is taking the world by storm. You may have heard cloud computing being referred to as "The Cloud". This form of technology allows multiple servers to share resources that run various hardware and software applications over the "Internet" that can be accessed via web browsers. In essence cloud computing features web-based software and hardware applications that run over the Internet. The main benefits of using services in "The Cloud" are:

 

Cloud services and applications are web-based and can be accessed anytime, anywhere, 24/7 as long as you have an Internet connection from a computer, Smartphone, or tablet device

 

Cloud applications work with multiple Operating System platforms such as Windows, Linux and Macintosh computers

 

Cloud applications and services are very inexpensive and allow you to pay as you go to use them

 

In most cases, there is no need for you to install software or purchase hardware to use cloud services

 

The most common types of virtual offices for work are home offices, telecommuting centers, mobile offices and hoteling.

 

A home office can be a room, a portion of a room, a hallway, a garage, or any other space you choose to work in.

 

Home Offices

 

The primary advantage of working at home is that it makes it easier for people to run their lives. Those who have to drop children off at school or take care of a sick parent can juggle their personal and professional responsibilities better if they aren't rushing to the office every day on a fixed schedule. Dropping the daily commute may also free up time for other activities such as time with a spouse or children, exercise, or hobbies.

 

Working at home also means fewer meetings and interruptions. Not surprisingly, this often translates into productivity gains. A study found that 80 percent of work-at-home entrepreneurs say they are more productive at home than they were in a traditional office. An overall increase in control over scheduling can improve your sense of satisfaction and can lead to a higher quality of work. This increased feeling of control over your work and your life cuts down significantly on stress levels.

 

Telecommuting Centers

 

A telecommuting center is a type of virtual offices where employees work, usually part-time, outside of a central corporate office. These virtual offices are either used by employees from one company or shared by employees from several different employers.

 

Telecommuting centers can offer many of the advantages of working in a home office without some of the disadvantages. Centers present fewer distractions than a home office and more opportunity for social and professional interaction. They also can provide access to computer networks, secretarial services, conference rooms, and copiers, which are not always available at home. In addition, some supervisors feel more comfortable with employees working at another office site rather than in the home.

 

The major barrier to widespread use of such virtual offices is their cost. For obvious reasons, home offices are much less expensive.

 

Mobile Offices

 

The term mobile office describes a car, or sometimes even a briefcase, used by people who spend a lot of time on the road. These "road warriors" have all the technology and other tools they need in their mobile office to complete their work without returning to the central office. They complete their work in their mobile office, at a client site, or in a home office, and go to the corporate office only for meetings, to pick up mail, or for support services that are not available elsewhere.

 

Enabling mobile workers to spend more time with their clients through technology is appealing to employers. The same technology that allows mobile workers to keep in touch enables them to improve productivity and spend more time with clients. At the client's location, mobile workers use computers to access inventory information, process orders, and provide quick turnaround for all kinds of services. Employers also save on real estate costs by having mobile workers do the bulk of their desk work outside of the company office.

 

Hoteling

 

Although technically not an office, hoteling is a catch-all term for work arrangements in which corporate employees use desks on an as-needed basis.

 

Employees in hoteling arrangements do not have assigned offices on a long-term basis. Armed with portable computers and other technology, these employees visit clients and perform administrative tasks on the road or from offices at home. They return to the corporate office for meetings or when they need other support services.

 

Here is a list of 7 tools that can be used to help you get started with setting up a virtual office that can help you save money on operating expenses and give your business a professional look inexpensively.

 

1. Online Billing and Invoicing Solution

 

Online invoicing solutions help you in getting your payment on time. With these invoicing tools, you can send invoices to your clients via email which will help you save money on postage.

 

2. Online Backup and Recovery Solution

 

You never know when disaster will strike. When it does, you'll want to be ready for it. Having a backup and recovery system in place is crucial for any business-no matter what size they are. The advantage of using online backup solutions vs. traditional backup services is that you will have access to your important documents and files anytime that you need them. Some companies offer very affordable online disaster recovery solutions that will help get you back up and running again in the event of a catastrophe in your virtual office.

 

3. Online Fax Solutions

 

Tired of tying up your phone line to send or receive faxes? If you are, then an online fax service is the perfect solution for you. Online fax services eliminate the need to purchase an expensive fax machine or run to a local store or copy center when you need to send faxes. These services allow you to send and receive faxes over the Internet as PDF files.

 

4. Online File Sharing and Document Management System

 

Document management systems lets you store, manage and share your documents online anytime you need them via an Internet browser. This system definitely comes in handy for a small business owner needing quick access to documents even when they are away from their personal computer. You can create different folders to store your documents in them, share files with your employees, team members or business colleagues, post comments regarding specific files you uploaded, and set permissions for specific files and folders that you may or may not want to share. Types of files that you can upload are Microsoft office applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access), PDF files, and Executable files and programs.

 

5. All-In-One Printer, Copier and Scanner

 

Using an all-in one printer or multifunction device that features a printer, copier and scanner for your business will surely eliminate the need for purchasing other hardware devices separately. The feature I've grown to love most with using an All-in-One printer is the capability of being able to scan documents from the device, download it as a PDF and send it back using an online Fax Service. Isn't this a nice feature for a virtual office?

 

Some additional obvious benefits of using a multi-function printer include:

 

You can have almost everything you need in one device since most multifunctional devices are equipped with copiers, scanners, or fax machines.

 

They are very easy to maintain. Since all-in one printers are standalone devices, there will be less equipment for you to take care of.

 

You can save a lot of work space. Office equipment can tend to be bulky and take up a lot of space. Multifunction devices aid tremendously in this area.

 

You can save money. It is more expensive for you to purchase several pieces of beneficial for your company, especially if you are trying to save on your expenses.

 

6. Online Project Collaboration and Web Conferencing Tools

 

Online collaboration and web conferencing tools allow you to work with your employees and clients in different locations across the world via one virtual location. With these tools, you can conduct live presentations, host online meetings, do sales presentations and conduct training right from your computer by sharing your computer screen with multiple users over the Internet.

 

Most web conferencing and project collaboration tools require you to download a desktop sharing application onto your computer to share your screen or send a special link through email to the participants of the meeting. After the participants have received a link to the meeting and have clicked on it, they will be able to join the web conference.

 

Google Apps is an additional resource that offers free project collaboration and online messaging tools to small business owners. With Google apps, you can use your own customized business email addresses to send and receive email from Google's online email interface, receive 25GB worth of free online email storage, access to mobile email, an online calendar, and instant messaging.

 

7. Online Customer Relationship Management Systems (CRM)

 

I will warn you that Customer Relationship Management systems can be a tad bit complex for beginners. Before choosing a CRM for your business, I urge you to make sure that the software vendor that you select has great customer service or online tutorials and other resources available that will give you a step by step guide on how to setup and use the software program.

 

If you have a business and you are trying to keep expenses at a minimum and you don't want to have to pay someone an hourly wage to do jobs that can be automated, you have likely heart of a virtual office service. The great thing about these services is that you only have to pay for what you use, so there is no hourly wage to pay, as would be the case if you hired a full or even part time employee to do these things for you.

 

Wondering exactly what a virtual office assistant can do for you? Basically they can do all of the things that would be done by someone who was right in the office for you, except that you're not paying them every day that they come to work, you're only paying for when you use their services/

 

Some of the virtual office services that you can take advantage of include but are not limited:

 

- Secretarial support

- Copier and mail services

- Fax services

- Courier and postage services

- Remote reception services

- Automated attendant services

- Unified message that converts voicemail to email

- Live telephone answering service

- Call recording

- Booking ready to use office space

- Providing whiteboards, flip charts, screens and LCD projectors when needed

- Teleconferencing

- Catering arrangements

- Mail and parcel services

- Private locked mailbox services

- Email notification of mail and parcel pick up notices

- Mail and parcel forwarding as needed

 

This is jut a look at what these amazing services can do for you and your business. Of course not all businesses need these services all the time. This is why virtual office services really do make a lot of sense. When you're trying to reduce the operating budget as much as possible this is the way to go because you are only paying for the services that you need, and nothing more. So, instead of having someone on the books that is sitting there waiting for you to do these things, you simply need to contact the virtual office service when you need them and you're done.

 

If you need a few of the different services offered you can always choose a package of virtual services that works for you, or you can choose to customize a package that will give you only the services that you need and nothing more. When you customize the package you will not be paying for anything other than the services that you really want or need and even then you'll find that the savings will be substantial. The nice thing is that you can change your package or custom package at any time, if your needs change in any way, which will allow for you to budget for things in advance.

 

As you can see, working with a virtual office service really is a great option for a wide variety of businesses who don't necessarily need full time services and who want to watch their budget and only pay for what they need. Cracking down and diminishing the budget is always a great idea, and this is a really simple and straight forward way to do it for all different types and sizes of business around the world.

 

I'd say Dropbox wins on everything but price, if you need more than 2 GB that is.

 

Dropbox provides native software for Linux and isn't reliant on Adobe Air like Amazon Cloud Drive is.

 

You can share files publicly with Dropbox, such as dl.dropbox.com/u/13243104/cams.html

 

Mozy is more for backup than multi-PC syncing: 50 GB on just one computer at Mozy is $6 per month ($72 a year). Is there anyone Amazon doesn't beat on price?

 

SpiderOak looks good.

Unified Messaging is a technology that works with VOIP systems and is a feature that runs virtual office phone systems. Unified Messaging combines the integration of email, instant messaging, fax, voicemail, video messaging, and text messaging technologies together for storage onto a single system. For example, with traditional communications systems messages are delivered onto several types of storage systems such as Voicemail systems, Fax machines and email servers.

If you have a business and you are trying to keep expenses at a minimum and you don't want to have to pay someone an hourly wage to do jobs that can be automated, you have likely heart of a virtual office service. The great thing about these services is that you only have to pay for what you use, so there is no hourly wage to pay, as would be the case if you hired a full or even part time employee to do these things for you.

 

Wondering exactly what a virtual office assistant can do for you? Basically they can do all of the things that would be done by someone who was right in the office for you, except that you're not paying them every day that they come to work, you're only paying for when you use their services/

 

Some of the virtual office services that you can take advantage of include but are not limited:

 

- Secretarial support

- Copier and mail services

- Fax services

- Courier and postage services

- Remote reception services

- Automated attendant services

- Unified message that converts voicemail to email

- Live telephone answering service

- Call recording

- Booking ready to use office space

- Providing whiteboards, flip charts, screens and LCD projectors when needed

- Teleconferencing

- Catering arrangements

- Mail and parcel services

- Private locked mailbox services

- Email notification of mail and parcel pick up notices

- Mail and parcel forwarding as needed

 

This is jut a look at what these amazing services can do for you and your business. Of course not all businesses need these services all the time. This is why virtual office services really do make a lot of sense. When you're trying to reduce the operating budget as much as possible this is the way to go because you are only paying for the services that you need, and nothing more. So, instead of having someone on the books that is sitting there waiting for you to do these things, you simply need to contact the virtual office service when you need them and you're done.

 

If you need a few of the different services offered you can always choose a package of virtual services that works for you, or you can choose to customize a package that will give you only the services that you need and nothing more. When you customize the package you will not be paying for anything other than the services that you really want or need and even then you'll find that the savings will be substantial. The nice thing is that you can change your package or custom package at any time, if your needs change in any way, which will allow for you to budget for things in advance.

 

As you can see, working with a virtual office service really is a great option for a wide variety of businesses who don't necessarily need full time services and who want to watch their budget and only pay for what they need. Cracking down and diminishing the budget is always a great idea, and this is a really simple and straight forward way to do it for all different types and sizes of business around the world.

 

JULIE-ANN (later JULIE, MACQUARIE LADY and HAWKESBURY WANDERER)

 

The MV Julie operated in Forster for around five years providing a link from Wallis Island to Forster for passengers using the Airlines of NSW service to Sydney. She also acted as a tourist launch operating on Wallis Lake. This image shows her at the Little Street wharf in the Breckenridge Channel in Forster.

 

The story of the Ferry MV Julie that plied the waters of Wallis Lake in the early 1960s is convoluted and only recently have the details started to unfold. The information presented should be treated as a guide only and some details may be inaccurate.

The story is the result of the input from many including:

- Graham Nicholson and Chris Borough who jointly run the Flickr site Great Lakes and Manning River Shipping NSW

- Graeme Andrews – authority on shipping and widely published author,

- Mori Flapan – Naval Architect;

- David Saul – expert on fishing boats on the Richmond River.

- Rick Stockley - Brooklyn

 

One photograph taken by Graeme Andrews’ father in 1964 was the start of a quest to find more about the ferry MV JULIE the elusive vessel that plied Wallis Lake in the Great Lakes Area of the mid North Coast of NSW. No-one seemed to know anything of her - unusual as many people who live or visited Forster-Tuncurry are still around. The evidence is now strong that the MV Julie Ann was renamed the MV Julie when she was sold to interests in Forster.

1968 - 1969 H.G. Anniwell

1969 - 1980 Fellows Bus Service

1980 to 1994 (or possibly later) Warren Hollis Marine.

1987 Believed to have been re-named Macquarie Lady

After 1994 - sold to Davey family on the Hawkesbury River; based in Brooklyn and re-named Hawkesbury Wanderer

After 2008 Understood to have been sold; later sunk during during relocation from Brooklyn

 

Launch

The Julie-Ann was launched from Woodburn in mid December 1953 with Robin Day as Master. In late December she was operating at Evans Head as a cruise boat taking tourists to Schnapper Point. (Northern Star (Lismore, NSW) 28 Dec 1953)

 

Operation along Richmond River - 1954

The Julie Ann regularly operated as a tourist boat operating between Ballina and Lismore.

 

Altered and registered

The Julie Ann was altered and registered as Julie in late 1954 with Official Number 196420. She remained on the Richmond River until she was purchased and alterations made necessary for conversion to passenger work at Forster. By 1961 she was surveyed for 70 passengers and two crew.

 

Operation as ferry servicing air services to Wallis Island

A regular air service direct to Forster became possible when an airstrip was completed on Wallis Island in 1952. Butler Air Services commenced the service using DC3 aircraft. The launch ALMA G II (with backup service provided by Stan Croad in his launch the Lake Wallis) was used to transport passengers from Wallis Island from 1952 until December 1959.

Following a hostile takeover of Butler by Airlines of NSW, larger aircraft were put on the route and the launch Julie was put into service in early 1960. Funding for purchase of the launch Julie was provided by way of a mortgage from Airlines of NSW to local agent Jim Colliton.

The death of Jim Colliton in July 1964 caused difficulties for his family and the Julie was sold to local interests but was no longer used as a ferry service.

 

A new life for the MV Julie on Lake Macquarie

In 1966 the launch Julie was sold to J. Huxtable and in 1967 to I.W. Huxtable & D. Mullaney but it was not until 1968 (after she had passed survey) that she was bought by H.G. Anniwell and taken down from Forster to Lake Macquarie using her own engine

 

Operation on Lake Macquarie

From 1968 - 1994 (or probably later) she operated as a charter launch on Lake Macquarie. Initially owned by H.G. Anniwell she was bought by Fellows Swansea Bus Service in 1969 and then in 1980 to Warren Hollis Marine. Over time she was modified but retained the name Julie until reportedly renamed Macquarie Lady circa 1987 (see Ferries of NSW - Compiled by Alan Ezzy).

 

Sold to interests on the Hawkesbury River

Warren Hollis sold the Macquarie Lady to the Davey family who operated Hawkesbury River Cruises. She was renamed Hawkesbury Wanderer and was used as a standby vessel - observed at Brooklyn in 2008.

It is understood that she was sold and sunk while travelling south from Hawkesbury River - no details have been found.

JULIE-ANN (later JULIE, MACQUARIE LADY and HAWKESBURY WANDERER)

 

The Julie provided both a ferry service for flights arriving on Wallis Island as well as an excursion launch around Wallis Lake. A Finn, John Sointu, built his home on Wallis Island opposite Coomba park. The old log punt Queen I was purchased by Ida Niemi (a resident at the Sointu household) and sunk on the southern side of the wharf. The remnants of the log punt can be seen on the left.

Note: It is argued by the Great Lakes Historical Society that it was the log punt Wallis Lake that was taken to the Sointu wharf and sunk (see Log punt Wallis Lake...)

1987 Believed to have been re-named Macquarie Lady

After 1994 - sold to Davey family on the Hawkesbury River; based in Brooklyn and re-named Hawkesbury Wanderer

After 2008 Understood to have been sold; later sunk during during relocation from Brooklyn

 

Launch

The Julie-Ann was launched from Woodburn in mid December 1953 with Robin Day as Master. In late December she was operating at Evans Head as a cruise boat taking tourists to Schnapper Point. (Northern Star (Lismore, NSW) 28 Dec 1953)

 

Operation along Richmond River - 1954

The Julie Ann regularly operated as a tourist boat operating between Ballina and Lismore.

 

Altered and registered

The Julie Ann was altered and registered as Julie in late 1954 with Official Number 196420. She remained on the Richmond River until she was purchased and alterations made necessary for conversion to passenger work at Forster. By 1961 she was surveyed for 70 passengers and two crew.

 

Operation as ferry servicing air services to Wallis Island

A regular air service direct to Forster became possible when an airstrip was completed on Wallis Island in 1952. Butler Air Services commenced the service using DC3 aircraft. The launch ALMA G II (with backup service provided by Stan Croad in his launch the Lake Wallis) was used to transport passengers from Wallis Island from 1952 until December 1959.

Following a hostile takeover of Butler by Airlines of NSW, larger aircraft were put on the route and the launch Julie was put into service in early 1960. Funding for purchase of the launch Julie was provided by way of a mortgage from Airlines of NSW to local agent Jim Colliton.

The death of Jim Colliton in July 1964 caused difficulties for his family and the Julie was sold to local interests but was no longer used as a ferry service.

 

A new life for the MV Julie on Lake Macquarie

In 1966 the launch Julie was sold to J. Huxtable and in 1967 to I.W. Huxtable & D. Mullaney but it was not until 1968 (after she had passed survey) that she was bought by H.G. Anniwell and taken down from Forster to Lake Macquarie using her own engine

 

Operation on Lake Macquarie

From 1968 - 1994 (or probably later) she operated as a charter launch on Lake Macquarie. Initially owned by H.G. Anniwell she was bought by Fellows Swansea Bus Service in 1969 and then in 1980 to Warren Hollis Marine. Over time she was modified but retained the name Julie until reportedly renamed Macquarie Lady circa 1987 (see Ferries of NSW - Compiled by Alan Ezzy).

 

Sold to interests on the Hawkesbury River

Warren Hollis sold the Macquarie Lady to the Davey family who operated Hawkesbury River Cruises. She was renamed Hawkesbury Wanderer and was used as a standby vessel - observed at Brooklyn in 2008.

It is understood that she was sold and sunk while travelling south from Hawkesbury River - no details have been found.

JULIE-ANN (later JULIE, MACQUARIE LADY and HAWKESBURY WANDERER)

 

MV Julie Ann taking tourists to beach off Schnapper Point (near Evans Head) in early 1954

 

The story of the Ferry MV Julie that plied the waters of Wallis Lake in the early 1960s is convoluted and only recently have the details started to unfold. The information presented should be treated as a guide only and some details may be inaccurate.

The story is the result of the input from many including:

- Graham Nicholson and Chris Borough who jointly run the Flickr site Great Lakes and Manning River Shipping NSW

- Graeme Andrews – authority on shipping and widely published author,

- Mori Flapan – Naval Architect;

- David Saul – expert on fishing boats on the Richmond River.

- Rick Stockley - Brooklyn

 

One photograph taken by Graeme Andrews’ father in 1964 was the start of a quest to find more about the ferry MV JULIE the elusive vessel that plied Wallis Lake in the Great Lakes Area of the mid North Coast of NSW. No-one seemed to know anything of her - unusual as many people who live or visited Forster-Tuncurry are still around. The evidence is now strong that the MV Julie Ann was renamed the MV Julie when she was sold to interests in Forster.

No. 90 hauls a train of logs just south of Cook Creek on the newly relocated mainline. In the distance are some of the foothills of Olympic National Park. The new grade and heavier rail was required for the diesels that would soon arrive. Regular steam operation ended in 1962, but a few steamers were used in backup service until 1967. The railroad itself survived until 1984.

I am, paradoxically, posting this desktop both despite and because of the fact that my setup has not changed in any meaningful way for several months now. "Despite," in that I feel bad about not posting more often. Most of my spare time has been annexed by another large creative project, and I miss the unbroken hours of Rainmeter tweaking I used to do. "Because," in that there is still some value in taking stock of this setup: it has proven itself as a highly practical, unobstrusive, and all-around great arrangement. I just love it the way it is, and like all the best designs, it makes me feel like I want to use my notebook, and that it's going to do exactly what I want it to do.

 

For the first time since Lightning Sunset, I'm going to go through my entire arsenal of core applications and detail how they're being used and why.

 

(By the way, there's another reason why I feel like showing off my computer today: I just received a RAM upgrade, from 1 GB to 2 GB. I swear, it's halfway to a brand new computer. Even with all of the stuff below - every single one, running simultaneously - I don't break a 50% memory load. It is geekily glorious.)

 

- - - - - - -

 

Clouds

 

As anyone who follows my desktops knows, I go through wallpapers pretty rapidly, while having a few favorites that I regularly return to. This has become one of them. I love the style of having a single crisp, asymmetrical object surrounded by a simple, subtle gradient. It's a great synthesis of the functional and the aesthetic; fresh and stimulating, without being distracting or gaudy. (Via cain.)

 

- - - - - - -

 

Lakrits

 

I really love this visual style for XP; it's become one of lassekongo83's most popular, and deservedly so. Its most distinguishing feature, one which is inexplicably rare among Windows shell themes, is that it inverts the colors, giving Explorer, Notepad, etc. a dark-gray background against light-gray text. It is wonderfully soft on the eyes, especially late at night.

 

Of equal importance, it also finally makes Windows itself match the light-on-dark theme common to my Rainmeter, Firefox, et al. I think it was nitzua who pointed out that some of the most carefully-crafted desktop themes are shattered the minute you open the start menu. So it's a real pleasure to have a genuinely customized work environment, not just the illusion of one.

 

Aside from those, I'm just enamored of its simple grays. Lakrits is a legitimately minimalist VS, and I'll miss it muchly when I make the jump to Windows 7.

Startups

 

- Start Killer.

- Taskbar Shuffle.

- D-Color.

 

These really haven't changed since the Lightning Sunset days. I wrote an individual paragraph for each of them before I realized that I was just repeating myself from 16 months ago. The common thread here is that they're all tiny apps which enhance the taskbar and the desktop in extremely logical, intuitive, "I can't believe it didn't do this by itself" ways.

 

- - - - - - -

 

Virtual Shell

 

- Autohotkey.

- Launchy. Skin: Enigma.

- Rainmeter. Skins: Enigma 2.6, customized.

 

It's these three apps which really change the way I use my notebook. As you probably know, I use Autohotkey to

 

- Launch core apps, documents and settings with universal hotkeys. (Firefox is Win+F, Thunderbird is Win+T, Notepad is Win+N, Google Wave is Win+W, etc.) In addition, the other two get very prominent hotkeys as befits their status: I can start up Launchy with Win+F11, and Rainmeter with Win+F12.

- Adjust the transparency of the active window and taskbar.

- Minimize, maximize, restore, and Alt+Tab using only the Alt key and the mouse.

- Control iTunes with universal hotkeys.

- Send certain commonly-used phrases when triggered, ala Texter.

 

Launchy, meanwhile, does pretty much everything else. My devout adoration of Launchy has never wavered. Summoning any app, folder, document, control panel module, song, picture, video, theme, log, and search engine in less than ten keystrokes? Win. (And I still use Calcy all the time, too.)

 

Rainmeter, by now, speaks for itself. See the notes for more details. The only thing that deserves specific mention is that Rainmeter no longer requires assistance from a third-party app like Desktop Coral to reserve space at the edge of the screen. You can now redefine the coordinates of Windows' desktop work area in your theme file. Basically, I used to require three apps - Rainmeter, CD Art Display, and Desktop Coral - to achieve this effect. Now I can do it in one.

 

- - - - - - -

 

Yod'm 3D

 

With my new RAM upgrade (and please accept my half-hearted apology for going on about it), it really costs me nothing to keep this light, attractive three-dimensional desktop manager running at all times. It activates when the mouse enters either bottom corner, so the overall perception is one of physically rotating the cube - very intuitive, I've found.

 

- - - - - - -

 

Trillian

 

Trillian, like Launchy, may as well be a startup app. I keep it running all the time, even when playing games or watching movies. I can't stand being out of digital contact; it's like living without a phone. These days, I use Trillian to connect to Skype and Twitter, as well, which only reaffirms its value to me: the more tasks a single app can cover, the more I love it.

 

The reason I can't abide Miranda or Pidgin is that neither (as far as I can tell) is capable storing logs in a plaintext, single-file format. This is a necessity for me, since I'm constantly looking up messages from old conversations, even months or years later, and nothing beats bringing it up in three strokes with Launchy and searching directly in Notepad.

 

- - - - - - -

 

Dropbox

 

I've tried a lot of synchronization and backup services in the past. Before Dropbox, I was a big fan of a Firefox extension (I can't remember the name) which let you upload files directly to your Gmail account space. My desire for this genre can be summed up as "a USB stick in the cloud," and Dropbox is the first one that I've kept and used for over a year. It's perfect, and as the storage capacity increases over time, so does my loyalty.

 

- - - - - - -

 

iTunes & Last.fm

 

I know you all hate iTunes. I don't blame you, I'm just convinced that we're not actually using the same program. I don't know what I'm doing differently, but on my laptop, iTunes and its library (3500+ songs now) load in under 5 seconds, handle just as smoothly as Firefox, and do virtually everything I want a media player to do. I keep trying alternatives - I actually haven't yet uninstalled Songbird after trying the new version last week - but as long as iTunes ain't broken, I have no desire to fix it.

 

Last.fm, on the other hand, is an experiment. I'm simply interested in keeping track of my music listening habits and comparing them with others'. The scrobbler does its thing and never interferes with my work in any way, so for the moment I'm happy to give it a home. It loads automatically with iTunes, too, which is nice - one less thing to worry about.

 

- - - - - - -

 

Thunderbird 2.0

 

I have not upgraded to Thunderbird 3. I kept trying it with each beta release, and then the final version, and I was quite disappointed each time. As it stands, the interface is quite bulky, the folder labels are inexplicably verbose. The "Smart Folders" really bulk up the "unread" view, too, which is pretty ironic, since I've always relied on it to serve as my condensed, consolidated reading list. As if that wasn't enough, it also insists on synchronizing virtually all of my email, including the spam folders - which also appear in the "unread" view. I admit, I'd like to be able to view flash applets without having to open feed items in Firefox, but it's just not enough to beat the cons.

 

So I'm sticking with 2.0 for the time being. Like iTunes, Thunderbird simply meets all my requirements. It is my consummate message center: all five of my email accounts synchronized via IMAP, plus my RSS feeds, all together in one simple view. I use exactly one extension: Minimize to Tray, which lets me keep Thunderbird available at all times without taking up valuable taskbar space.

 

At some point, I do hope to have Thunderbird (email/RSS), Trillian (IM/IRC/Twitter) and Google Wave integrated into a single elegant client. I'm sure the day is coming. But for now, I feel I've brought them together on my system in the most efficient way available to me.

 

- - - - - - -

 

Google Wave Notifier

 

Until Thunderbird or Trillian get a Wave plugin, I can't say no to this lovely little tray app. Like Last.fm, it does its job and minds its own business, and it does both so damn well that it passed my stringent filters with surprising ease.

 

- - - - - - -

 

Firefox

 

My Firefox is still pretty much as seen here: just a box with an address bar. I use keyboard shortcuts to toggle my bookmarks and menubar, and, naturally, back/forward. Additionally, I use keywords to access search engines - for example, to Google "Lifehacker," I just type "g lifehacker". Once you get used to it, it saves an awful lot of time.

 

While I did jump on the Awesome Bar bandwagon for the first few months, I'm now trying to bookmark more aggressively. This is because, when my history and cache are clear, Firefox loads in under one second. It beats Chrome on my system. You just can't beat that.

 

I do want to mention something to users of Lazarus Form Recovery, an extension that I heartily recommend. It's saved me, on numerous occasions, from losing hours and hours of writing. However, 99% of the time, it's something I'd written just minutes prior, and lost due to a crash; I've never needed to recover something days or weeks after the fact. So I strongly recommend clearing your Lazarus cache (which is kept separately from the main Firefox cache) and setting it to purge saved forms if they're older than a week or so. Before I realized this, Firefox sometimes took up to a minute and a half to load, no matter what else I tried to speed it up. Now, as I mentioned, it freaking beats Chrome at its own game.

 

- - - - - - -

 

I am currently running virtually all of these apps. Firefox has a dozen tabs, I've got four conversations in Trillian, and iTunes is playing the score of The Thin Red Line. And I'm clocking in at a whopping 40% memory use. RAM is cool.

Merry Christmas. :)

The Truth is out,just in time for Valentine's day: Nobody Likes you, because you have crabs!*

 

*Just in time for Valentine's day, here's the latest product from our Grim Bros. romantic line - for now exclusively available as a prize in the Tainted love hunt which starts tomorrow. What we have here is couple of pet crabs which sit on your shoulders (or wherever you want to attach them, you dirty, dirty thing). They're animated, dandy, dapper and snarky, they are mean, snobby and arrogant and yes, they will cost you all your friends if you're not careful. When you click on them, they will give you a menu and you can pick what kind of insult you want the crab to throw into the world.

 

And because Valentine's day is coming upon us, soon, when you get the crabs, you also can give crabs to a friend or enemy. because the hunt prize box contains a pair of transferable crabs as well.

 

Please note: As Cutea's down with a nasty case of the flu and can't work at the moment, our backup service helpers will jump in. For this to work, it's important that you use the instore mailbox to get in contact (and please be patient with us!)

Hello everyone! I'm happy to report that I am making plans to recover and hopefully, exceed in file count and quality, the files that were stolen from me. I am so very grateful to have such wonderfully supportive friends and rabid nature and wildlife fans! I wish to thank each of you who have kindly taken time out of their day to leave me a message (or messages) showing such earnest support. Your words rang in my head every time I walked past my camera gear that has been collecting dust.

 

I started just pricing around to see what it would take to travel back to every place I've been in the last 5 years. As you can imagine, the total was quite high. Amazingly, many of the folks I met in my travels still operate at those countries/locations. Some have generously offered to discount their rates to help me out. Others are willing to guide me for nothing. I tell you, I was so moved by this kindness and combined with all your words of encouragement, I simply could not walk away from this hobby I love so much. So now its a mad scramble to scrape up my pennies so I can start booking flights! Funny how much more airline tickets are now. That's ok, I hear you can live a fairly full life on a single kidney LOL

 

I have since picked up a new laptop (its pretty bad-a$$ by the way) and am trying subscriptions to a couple of auto-backup services for my future files. I still have some of my main gear - Canon 1DX, 600mm f/4, 16-35mm f/2.8 and a medium capacity tripod. I guess that's really all I need! Man I hate to think of all the other gear I lost, it still stings to think about it, but I digress. I am looking forward to hitting the road and doing my best to replace what I lost. I have been told I'm crazy for planning it this way, but I hope to re-visit every place I've shot at in the last 5 years, all within ONE year!! I lost over 20 Terabytes of data or about 800,000 files, spanning 13 countries and 30 states. So like a crazy man, I hope to have a million files this time next year and if I fail in this quest, hey I know it be fun trying.

 

So far, the places already carved in my stone calendar include:

 

1. Budapest, Hungary - Hortobagy Preserve promises 25 or more species all at one of my most favorite countries on Earth. I literally live on Goulash the entire time I'm there. LOL

2. Seattle, Washington - Eagles, Short Eared Owls, and who knows what else, all with the company of great friends.

3. Sarasota, Florida - best place in North America to eat authentic Cuban food while photographing all manner of critters!

4. High Desert Landscapes - a whirlwind spin around the southwest area of the US. I just gotta get my landscape fix in!

5. Long Island, New York - one of the best places I've shot for shorebirds on the cheap!

6. Coastal Texas - so much action here, you better consult your doctor first to make sure you're healthy enough to have this much fun haha!

 

I was debating on whether I should post pictures as I get them, or not post anything until this yearlong quest of over. What do you all think? Honestly I don't know if I can sit on 20 terabytes of files and not share a single one for that long haha!! LOL So thanks again for your support and encouragement.

 

I leave you with a photo of the cause of all my troubles of late. This highly modified FJ Cruiser literally will cost me $100,000 by the time I've completed this journey

Here's the sunrise from Sunday morning, after the wettest Saturday ever. I think this was taken with a polarizer and a 3-stop soft-step ND grad but I don't really remember anymore.

 

Lately, several contacts have had their homes or cars broken into and their camera/computer gear stolen. This should serve as a wake-up call. Inventory your equipment, including serial numbers, and check that your equipment is properly insured. If you have sold or licensed photos, there is a very good chance any claim you make against your renters or homeowners insurance for your gear would be denied. You need a different insurance policy. Aaron provides one possible suggestion here. Also review how you backup your photos and data. If you keep multiple backups, but they are all kept in your home, remember that ALL of your backups could be stolen or destroyed if something happens to your home. Portable storage devices are a hot target for thieves due to their small size and potential for containing useful information to enable identity theft. Keep a storage device with an additional backup offsite in a different location, such as a bank vault. Or use a secure online backup service. While camera equipment can be replaced, the moments captured in your photos cannot.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I'm thankful for all of the wonderful help and feedback I've received from my Flickr friends. In the spirit of being thankful, I figured that I'd give back a bit and share the knowledge I've gained about backups. This info is all about backups with a Mac. You'll need to adapt to your needs.

 

This is a lot of info, but hopefully useful. Oh...and the image above is another look from outside of Paris, ID at sunrise.

 

Background

I'm a bit crazy when it comes to backing things up, so this has extended to my new photo library. After taking thousands of shots in my first six weeks with my D90, my laptop drive was quickly filling up. I'm a tech geek at heart, so I set about finding the best backup method for my needs.

 

How Much Is Too Much?

When it comes to backup, there's not too much. So what is ENOUGH? In my opinion, enough is having three copies of everything in three separate locations. If your computer and backup drive are both at your house, and your house burns down, your data is gone.

 

My Computer & The Problem

Computer: MacBook 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 4GB DDR3 :: OSX 10.5.5

Problem: My laptop goes with me, so it's not always close to an external drive for backup. I needed a solution that would work for multiple locations.

 

Option #1: My Previous Backup Process

I'm including this here since it will probably work for most of you that use a Mac. If you're fortunate enough to have Leopard, I hope you're taking advantage of Time Machine. This nifty built-in application silently backs up all of your data, every hour, to an external drive.

 

The problem with Time Machine is that it was created to back up to one specific external drive. There is a solution to this issue, however. Here's how to use two or more separate external backup drives with Time Machine:

 

- Get yourself a copy of "Do Something When" (DSW) here. Install it.

- Download my modified Applescript here. I would give credit to the originator of this script, but I don't know who that is.

- Open the script in Script Editor and follow the directions given there. Basically you simply need to change the names of the backup drives you're using.

- Follow the directions given in the script for adding options to DSW.

 

That's about it for option 1. The point of this is that you have two external drives in two locations. When you connect either one to your laptop, your Time Machine will fire up and create a backup, without any intervention from you. This option makes sure that you have your data in at least three locations: your laptop, backup drive #1 at home, and backup drive #2 somewhere else. If something bad were to happen, you would lose very little information.

 

Option #2: My Current Backup Process

As I've explained, I want my data in at least three locations. It helps me sleep a bit better. Option #1, above, is perfect if you have plenty of hard drive space on your laptop. I knew that I'd be running out of space within the next few months. With my switch from Aperture to Lightroom 2, I figured now was as good of a time as any to revamp my backup process. Here's what I'm doing now:

 

- I moved my Lightroom catalog to an external drive, which is connected to my laptop. This hurts the speed of Lightroom, but I'm ok with that.

- I had a friend of mine set up a Linux server, accessible via the Internet, with rsync. This server currently has 640GB of drive space available. Plenty for now. : )

- I created a script on my Mac that runs rsync. (You can use a script, cron, or something else of your choosing.) All of my images are now copied from my external drive to the server.

 

At this point I have my images in two separate locations. (My external laptop drive and the Linux server.) There are many options for your third location, such as an online backup/storage service that supports rsync, another external drive attached to the server, or what I've chosen:

 

I have a Mac Mini at home with an attached Drobo. The Drobo is redundant by itself, which is a great thing. My Drobo has just over a terabyte of space on it, which is perfect for backups. So here's how I got my data to the third location:

 

- I use rsync on the Mac Mini at home to sync my data from the online server to the Mini.

 

Conclusion...finally

 

All done. The cool thing about rsync is that it's bi-directional. In other words, I could install Lightroom on my Mac Mini (at home) and work on my images there OR on my laptop. Any changes done in either location would be synced to the online server and to each computer, provided that you're not updating images in both places at the same time.

 

Whew. That was a lot of info.

 

Questions? Please ask here in case others are wondering the same thing. If you are aware of a good, cheaply-priced online backup service that supports rsync, let me know.

 

Thanksgiving :: Thankful for Another Day :: Giving Back With My Backup Process on Flickriver

Last week I experienced my first hard-disk failure ever (in fact my first hardware failure in more than 10 years of using computers ... maybe something to do with the fact that I'm using Macs).

 

My external backup hard-disk died on me, suddenly, silently, without even saying good bye ...

 

Even my knowledgeable friends couldn't revive it (and they know what they're talking about you know, they are able to tell if a disk is broken just by listening at the first few seconds when it boots).

 

Since then, I'm even more paranoid than I was before about loosing digital files.

I was paranoid alright, but I guess just the right amount, now I've taken the leap into pure insanity... there no telling what I'll be up to next.

 

Kidding of course. But seriously, what do you photo-enthusiasts do to ensure your photos are safe? Do you copy your photos regularly to 6 different hard disks and store them at different friend's places? Do you print all of them? Do you pray every day? Or do you just live in ignorance, a happy and worry-free life?

 

For my part I first download my photos to my computer, then copy them to my other computer, then I back them up on an external hard disk (the one that died) and on top of that I burn DVDs every now and then. Add to that some uploads to Flickr and some print outs as well.

 

But is it enough? What if I get robbed, or the flat burns down, or a gigantic magnetic field erases every data I ever had? (did I mention I was paranoid?)

 

So anyway, lately I was trying to convince my friends that only the CLOUD could keep my data safe from harm. You know, uploading photos to online backup services that are specializing in just this.

I was (still am to some degree) convinced that this is the best option yet. I mean, those companies are making money on this, they've got to be good at it, right? .... Right ??

 

Somehow I imagine them having fire-bullet-thief-spilled cofee-proof rooms filled with professional servers, doing data replication all over the place. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe they just have the usual Windows PCs lying around in the dust of an office, stacked on top of each other (we've got some of them at work). Maybe the company is running out of money and will just go bankrupt in 6 months. There's no telling.

And this is exactly the problem with this kind of service, you don't know what they are doing with the data. You don't know if it is really safe and for how long.

Also, there's the big debate on confidentiality, but really, I don't care as much about this one. I'd be ready to copy all of my data to Google servers (I already do to some extent) for example. Even keeping in mind how much of a giant multinational group they're becoming.

 

So anyway, if you had the energy to read all of this, maybe you'll be so kind as to answer my simple question: how do you keep your photos safe?

A FUNDAMENTAL PURCHASE FOR ALL INVOLVED IN POSSESSION ACTIONS –

ESPECIALLY HELPFUL FOR UNREPRESENTED PARTIES

 

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

 

The new eighth edition of “Defending Possession Proceedings” by Jan Luba QC and his colleagues has been eagerly anticipated because it remains the key ‘homelessness prevention’ handbook available on the market for such a wide readership at such an affordable price.

 

The Legal Action Group always produce comprehensive guides to all aspects of welfare and social law and practice, and this one relating to possession proceedings pursued against occupiers of residential property is particularly needed now. It is a book which one will see regularly on the bookshelves in most courtrooms because it is a guide for all involved in possession actions.

 

The authors, Jan Luba QC, Nic Madge, Derek McConnell, John Gallagher and Sam Madge-Wyld, deal with the three principal types of occupier involved normally in these proceedings: social housing tenants, private tenants and mortgage borrowers.

 

As the title suggests, the manual seeks to guide occupiers and their advisers in dealing with possession claims, tracing the court process from the initial notice given to the aftermath of eviction. It is written in a user-friendly way which LAG excels at so that the title contains specific information which is directly relevant to the most experienced legal practitioner and yet it is still understandable to the least experienced housing adviser yet it possesses an “all-round applicability”.

 

The new eighth edition includes current and future legislative changes in the Housing and Planning Act 2016; the Deregulation Act 2015, the Immigration Acts 2014 and 2016, the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014; the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012; the Localism Act 2011 and the Equality Act 2010.

 

The authors aim to cover in detail the impact of the Government’s welfare reform agenda through the introduction of the infamous ‘bedroom tax’ and the benefit cap. We found the sections on possession procedure most helpful because they incorporate all relevant changes in the Civil Procedure Rules (CPR), and specifically the important new Pre-action Protocol on possession claims by social landlords and the updated Pre-action Protocol on Mortgage Arrears. It is this sort of attention to detail which makes the book so helpful, especially for litigants in person which now abound the courts in a way they did not do before the LASPO era.

 

Readers will also be grateful for the important new case-law: Kay v United Kingdom (ECHR); and the Supreme Court cases of: Akerman-Livingstone v Aster Communities Limited; Hounslow LBC v Powell; McDonald v McDonald; R (ZH and CN) v Newham LBC and Sims v Dacorum BC. The Court of Appeal is not missed out either with: Barnsley MC v Norton; Zinda v Bank of Scotland plc and R (JL) v Secretary of State for Defence to name but a few.

 

We consider that “Defending Possession Proceedings” remains an essential and fundamental purchase for all advice workers, solicitors and barristers working with actual or prospective Defendants in possession proceedings at a time when very many are now litigants in person against represented Claimants.

 

And it is all down to the energy of LAG and all their writers who give us such a great backup service for welfare and social law. Thank you for making our lives that little bit easier when we face confrontation.

copperstoneclubbiz.com 813-321-7417 The one guaranteed way to improve the overall efficiency of your communication system is to opt for a virtual phone system. With a virtual phone system, you can avail a host of sophisticated features such as call forwarding, find me follow me, conferencing, music-on-hold, caller Id, speed dial, call blocking, auto- attendant, voicemail to email, fax to email, real-time call history etc.

 

There are four main technologies that make virtual offices work: The Internet, VOIP, Unified Messaging and Cloud Computing Technology. Unless you've been living under a rock, I'm sure at some point in your life you've used or heard of at least one of these forms of technology.

 

The Internet

 

Let's face it; the Internet is one form of technology that most of us cannot live without. It's a part of our everyday lives. It's a resource that 85% or more of small business owners use to run their businesses. The Internet allows us to check our email, host our websites, shop online, pay our bills and most importantly use various tools to provide services to our clients.

 

VOIP - What is it?

 

VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) is a technology that gives us the ability to use phone services over the Internet. As a matter of fact, traditional phone lines are slowly being phased out as small, medium and large businesses are reaping the benefits of using VOIP systems. The main benefits of using VOIP are the ability to make long distance phone calls, hold conference calls, use caller ID, call forwarding and other features that traditional telephone companies normally you charge for are available for free. Isn't that AWESOME?

 

Unified Messaging Systems

 

Unified Messaging is a technology that works with VOIP systems and is a feature that runs virtual office phone systems. Unified Messaging combines the integration of email, instant messaging, fax, voicemail, video messaging, and text messaging technologies together for storage onto a single system. For example, with traditional communications systems messages are delivered onto several types of storage systems such as Voicemail systems, Fax machines and email servers. Whereas with Unified Messaging Systems all of these different types of messages are stored in one place. This feature simplifies the user experience by giving them one place to check for messages rather than checking multiple places to retrieve messages.

 

Ultimately, the premise behind creating Unified Messaging Systems was to have a place where all of the above technologies can be brought together onto one platform to make communication as seamless as possible.

 

Cloud Computing: The Revolution

 

Cloud Computing Technology is taking the world by storm. You may have heard cloud computing being referred to as "The Cloud". This form of technology allows multiple servers to share resources that run various hardware and software applications over the "Internet" that can be accessed via web browsers. In essence cloud computing features web-based software and hardware applications that run over the Internet. The main benefits of using services in "The Cloud" are:

 

Cloud services and applications are web-based and can be accessed anytime, anywhere, 24/7 as long as you have an Internet connection from a computer, Smartphone, or tablet device

 

Cloud applications work with multiple Operating System platforms such as Windows, Linux and Macintosh computers

 

Cloud applications and services are very inexpensive and allow you to pay as you go to use them

 

In most cases, there is no need for you to install software or purchase hardware to use cloud services

 

The most common types of virtual offices for work are home offices, telecommuting centers, mobile offices and hoteling.

 

A home office can be a room, a portion of a room, a hallway, a garage, or any other space you choose to work in.

 

Home Offices

 

The primary advantage of working at home is that it makes it easier for people to run their lives. Those who have to drop children off at school or take care of a sick parent can juggle their personal and professional responsibilities better if they aren't rushing to the office every day on a fixed schedule. Dropping the daily commute may also free up time for other activities such as time with a spouse or children, exercise, or hobbies.

 

Working at home also means fewer meetings and interruptions. Not surprisingly, this often translates into productivity gains. A study found that 80 percent of work-at-home entrepreneurs say they are more productive at home than they were in a traditional office. An overall increase in control over scheduling can improve your sense of satisfaction and can lead to a higher quality of work. This increased feeling of control over your work and your life cuts down significantly on stress levels.

 

Telecommuting Centers

 

A telecommuting center is a type of virtual offices where employees work, usually part-time, outside of a central corporate office. These virtual offices are either used by employees from one company or shared by employees from several different employers.

 

Telecommuting centers can offer many of the advantages of working in a home office without some of the disadvantages. Centers present fewer distractions than a home office and more opportunity for social and professional interaction. They also can provide access to computer networks, secretarial services, conference rooms, and copiers, which are not always available at home. In addition, some supervisors feel more comfortable with employees working at another office site rather than in the home.

 

The major barrier to widespread use of such virtual offices is their cost. For obvious reasons, home offices are much less expensive.

 

Mobile Offices

 

The term mobile office describes a car, or sometimes even a briefcase, used by people who spend a lot of time on the road. These "road warriors" have all the technology and other tools they need in their mobile office to complete their work without returning to the central office. They complete their work in their mobile office, at a client site, or in a home office, and go to the corporate office only for meetings, to pick up mail, or for support services that are not available elsewhere.

 

Enabling mobile workers to spend more time with their clients through technology is appealing to employers. The same technology that allows mobile workers to keep in touch enables them to improve productivity and spend more time with clients. At the client's location, mobile workers use computers to access inventory information, process orders, and provide quick turnaround for all kinds of services. Employers also save on real estate costs by having mobile workers do the bulk of their desk work outside of the company office.

 

Hoteling

 

Although technically not an office, hoteling is a catch-all term for work arrangements in which corporate employees use desks on an as-needed basis.

 

Employees in hoteling arrangements do not have assigned offices on a long-term basis. Armed with portable computers and other technology, these employees visit clients and perform administrative tasks on the road or from offices at home. They return to the corporate office for meetings or when they need other support services.

 

Here is a list of 7 tools that can be used to help you get started with setting up a virtual office that can help you save money on operating expenses and give your business a professional look inexpensively.

 

1. Online Billing and Invoicing Solution

 

Online invoicing solutions help you in getting your payment on time. With these invoicing tools, you can send invoices to your clients via email which will help you save money on postage.

 

2. Online Backup and Recovery Solution

 

You never know when disaster will strike. When it does, you'll want to be ready for it. Having a backup and recovery system in place is crucial for any business-no matter what size they are. The advantage of using online backup solutions vs. traditional backup services is that you will have access to your important documents and files anytime that you need them. Some companies offer very affordable online disaster recovery solutions that will help get you back up and running again in the event of a catastrophe in your virtual office.

 

3. Online Fax Solutions

 

Tired of tying up your phone line to send or receive faxes? If you are, then an online fax service is the perfect solution for you. Online fax services eliminate the need to purchase an expensive fax machine or run to a local store or copy center when you need to send faxes. These services allow you to send and receive faxes over the Internet as PDF files.

 

4. Online File Sharing and Document Management System

 

Document management systems lets you store, manage and share your documents online anytime you need them via an Internet browser. This system definitely comes in handy for a small business owner needing quick access to documents even when they are away from their personal computer. You can create different folders to store your documents in them, share files with your employees, team members or business colleagues, post comments regarding specific files you uploaded, and set permissions for specific files and folders that you may or may not want to share. Types of files that you can upload are Microsoft office applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access), PDF files, and Executable files and programs.

 

5. All-In-One Printer, Copier and Scanner

 

Using an all-in one printer or multifunction device that features a printer, copier and scanner for your business will surely eliminate the need for purchasing other hardware devices separately. The feature I've grown to love most with using an All-in-One printer is the capability of being able to scan documents from the device, download it as a PDF and send it back using an online Fax Service. Isn't this a nice feature for a virtual office?

 

Some additional obvious benefits of using a multi-function printer include:

 

You can have almost everything you need in one device since most multifunctional devices are equipped with copiers, scanners, or fax machines.

 

They are very easy to maintain. Since all-in one printers are standalone devices, there will be less equipment for you to take care of.

 

You can save a lot of work space. Office equipment can tend to be bulky and take up a lot of space. Multifunction devices aid tremendously in this area.

 

You can save money. It is more expensive for you to purchase several pieces of beneficial for your company, especially if you are trying to save on your expenses.

 

6. Online Project Collaboration and Web Conferencing Tools

 

Online collaboration and web conferencing tools allow you to work with your employees and clients in different locations across the world via one virtual location. With these tools, you can conduct live presentations, host online meetings, do sales presentations and conduct training right from your computer by sharing your computer screen with multiple users over the Internet.

 

Most web conferencing and project collaboration tools require you to download a desktop sharing application onto your computer to share your screen or send a special link through email to the participants of the meeting. After the participants have received a link to the meeting and have clicked on it, they will be able to join the web conference.

 

Google Apps is an additional resource that offers free project collaboration and online messaging tools to small business owners. With Google apps, you can use your own customized business email addresses to send and receive email from Google's online email interface, receive 25GB worth of free online email storage, access to mobile email, an online calendar, and instant messaging.

 

7. Online Customer Relationship Management Systems (CRM)

 

I will warn you that Customer Relationship Management systems can be a tad bit complex for beginners. Before choosing a CRM for your business, I urge you to make sure that the software vendor that you select has great customer service or online tutorials and other resources available that will give you a step by step guide on how to setup and use the software program.

 

If you have a business and you are trying to keep expenses at a minimum and you don't want to have to pay someone an hourly wage to do jobs that can be automated, you have likely heart of a virtual office service. The great thing about these services is that you only have to pay for what you use, so there is no hourly wage to pay, as would be the case if you hired a full or even part time employee to do these things for you.

 

Wondering exactly what a virtual office assistant can do for you? Basically they can do all of the things that would be done by someone who was right in the office for you, except that you're not paying them every day that they come to work, you're only paying for when you use their services/

 

Some of the virtual office services that you can take advantage of include but are not limited:

 

- Secretarial support

- Copier and mail services

- Fax services

- Courier and postage services

- Remote reception services

- Automated attendant services

- Unified message that converts voicemail to email

- Live telephone answering service

- Call recording

- Booking ready to use office space

- Providing whiteboards, flip charts, screens and LCD projectors when needed

- Teleconferencing

- Catering arrangements

- Mail and parcel services

- Private locked mailbox services

- Email notification of mail and parcel pick up notices

- Mail and parcel forwarding as needed

 

This is jut a look at what these amazing services can do for you and your business. Of course not all businesses need these services all the time. This is why virtual office services really do make a lot of sense. When you're trying to reduce the operating budget as much as possible this is the way to go because you are only paying for the services that you need, and nothing more. So, instead of having someone on the books that is sitting there waiting for you to do these things, you simply need to contact the virtual office service when you need them and you're done.

 

If you need a few of the different services offered you can always choose a package of virtual services that works for you, or you can choose to customize a package that will give you only the services that you need and nothing more. When you customize the package you will not be paying for anything other than the services that you really want or need and even then you'll find that the savings will be substantial. The nice thing is that you can change your package or custom package at any time, if your needs change in any way, which will allow for you to budget for things in advance.

 

As you can see, working with a virtual office service really is a great option for a wide variety of businesses who don't necessarily need full time services and who want to watch their budget and only pay for what they need. Cracking down and diminishing the budget is always a great idea, and this is a really simple and straight forward way to do it for all different types and sizes of business around the world.

 

The smell of burning electronics is not something you want to be greeted with when you fire up your PC in the morning, let me tell you from personal experience. A trip to Fry's and a new power supply later and my computer is still dead. You see, when your power supply goes there's a good chance it's going to take something else with it. Unfortunately for me, that something happened to be my 1TB hard drive with all of my images.

 

One week later and I'm running dual 2TB drives RAIDed together, and the 600gb or so of data that I lost, my precious images, have been downloaded from my life saver of an online backup service, Mozy. Remember kids, ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR DATA!

 

I'd love to recommend Mozy to anyone that needs an online backup solution, however they recently changed their rates and no longer offer unlimited data backup, something I (and most photographers I would imagine) need. Once my yearly contract is up my monthly cost will increase by a factor of 14. Ow! A shame, as they really saved my butt and I'd love to continue to use their service, but its no longer cost effective. Now I'm looking for a new place to back up my data online.

Inventpure Mail Backup X has got everything a client could possibly need during mail migration. Apart from the usual backup service it also provides services like inbuilt mail converter engine, a mail viewer etc.

6.To successfully carry Yahoo mail backup in lesser time you can simply use Inventpure Mail Backup X. Not only does it regularly backs up your data from any major given major mail client, it also acts as a mail converter engine and a mail viewer. The user would never run out of storage space when using this software as it compresses files before storing them. So it would not be unfair to say that this software takes care of client needs extensively.

Following Jason Calacanis' call to action, I am deactivating my Facebook account tonight (with plans to delete it later on).

 

I've made most of my information private, including photos

I've run a backup using backupify

I have just visited to deactivate my Facebook account www.facebook.com/deactivate.php

 

Deactivate puts your account into a dormant state.

 

I am pasting part of Jason's post below. You can read the entire thing at

calacanis.com/2010/05/21/im-deleting-my-facebook-page-today/

  

====================

If you're going to join me (and folks like Leo Laporte and Peter

Rojas) in leaving Facebook, please consider recording yourself doing

so. Post that video to YouTube saying "I deleted/deactivated my

Facebook page!"

 

As we've discussed, there are better services for you to use from

companies you can trust.

 

I suggest doing one of three things below with your Facebook account

*after* you back it up.

 

[ Note: Before taking these steps, I suggest downloading your photos

manually and/or trying Backupify's beta Facebook backup service--which

is free. www.backupify.com. I'm an angel investor in this amazing

company.]

 

1. Just stop using Facebook: Don't log in, don't republish your tweets

to Facebook and don't update your status. Turn off all your photos.

This is a basic step that will also get you a lot time back for the

rest of your life. Try NOT logging into Facebook for three days and

see how much better your life is–I'm sure it will be! Take your

"Facebook time" and use it to actually ask a friend or family member

how they are doing. Take the dog or your kids (or yourself!) for a

walk.

 

The fact is, Facebook sends only a dozen folks to a link when I post

it. Compare that to hundreds to thousands of people clicking through

on Twitter (on a CTR basis Twitter is 10-20x Facebook!). Also, the

content on Twitter it typically valuable to me. The content on

Facebook tends to be "I'm playing this game" or someone "liking"

something inane. Get off Facebook and do something more productive.

Nothing important happens on Facebook–nothing.

 

2. Deactivate your account: This renders your account dormant, but you

can still log in at any time and "wake it up" again. Bear in mind,

your information is still stored on Facebook. They still have your

data. Having said that, there is no harm in trying this either…

Deactivate for the rest of the month and see what June 1st feels like

after you wean yourself off the Facebook crack. Just two or three

clicks and you can do it: www.facebook.com/deactivate.php
