Flickr Uploadr in Ubuntu

Finally got around to installing the official Flickr Uploadr on Ubuntu with Wine. The tricky part is that you have to use winetricks to install the MS Visual C++ 2005 runtime dlls, otherwise you get the XULRunner error, "Couldn't load XPCOM."

chmod +x FlickrUploadr-3.2.1-2009.06.02.01-en.exe
sudo apt-get install wine
wine FlickrUploadr-3.2.1-2009.06.02.01-en.exe
sh winetricks vcrun2005
wine "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Flickr Uploadr/Flickr Uploadr.exe"

Mrs. Fields

The perfect spot to eat cookies, and great lighting too.

"darkalish" - kind of dark
and the related, "darkaler" - more dark

While Julian was eating ice cream:
Me to Julian, "can I have some?"
Mom, "you have to raise your hand."
Julian, "higher!"

At mealtimes:
Julian, "don't talk when you have food in your mouth!"
(We think he picked this one up at school).

Before bedtime, as I'm putting on his pajamas (spontaneously):
"Remember me."
(that one scared the heck out of me).

Macho Man

During an unfortunate incident with a door, his poor little finger got squished. He didn't seem all that bothered by it (after the initial outpour of emotion), but his nail did eventually metamorph into something quite unnatural. I was wondering if it might not be a bad idea to take him to the doctor to get it checked out, but it seemed to be healing quite quickly on its own. And like I said, he didn't seem bothered by at all.

We kept our eye on it though, and it wasn't much later that I was witness to one of the most brutal things ever. I had noticed that the nail started sounding a bit "hollow", so I thought maybe instead of just healing, it would just fall off. Until, one day, I looked down to see him chewing on his nail--something he usually doesn't do--then he bit down, pulled really hard, and the nail popped right off! He just spit it out like a watermelon seed. Shivers ran down my spine. Viv didn't even want to look. Julian just gave out a bit of a yelp.

I rinsed his finger off, it did bleed a bit, but underneath there was a shiny new nail. A couple weeks later now, and it looks almost normal, even.

Big smile, another test.

3-Way @ 1 Year & 7 Months

Has it really been that long? Yeah, there's a bit of a gap--but, you can find some here,


This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.
