lurcher

Bob bob bobbing along...

I took some sighthound running pics of my hounds running with two lurchers and a greyhound belonging to some friends and popped them on Flickr for ease of sharing.  I don't normally use Flickr, but I wanted to put these up at a reasonable printable size and that seemed a quick way to do it...

They are here : http://www.flickr.com/photos/50739438@N02/sets/72157625699319843/    

Bob is not in them.  He doesn't really do competitive running : the best he can summon up is a sort of brief gallumph. I think he enjoys it though. Collapse )

This is the first set of photos I've taken off my new huge fast SD card (can't quite believe that 8Gb of data now fits on something that size*) . It is so huge and fast that the SD card reader built into philmophlegm's monitor could not cope, and refused to talk to it, so I bought a really cheap USB SD card reader off amazon.

Why did I not buy one of these before??? It's LOADS faster than the old card reader and the machine doesnt' have any tendency to throw a wobbly if you want to look at the pics without copying them first! It cost less than three quid! AWESOME.

* I've selfconsciously put this in in the hope that in a few years I will look back on it, probably using my grain-of-rice-sized supercomputer, and laugh...**

** damn it, I've just jinxed computer development for the next 30 years and possibly caused the downfall of industrial civilisation with that footnote, havent' I? I can only hope this second footnote will fix things.
