My first post of 2009
Yes it has been awhile! I’ve been away for 5 weeks on annual leave over the Christmas/New year break. Yes I know it’s a long time to be on holidays but when you’ve been a the same company as I have you tend to build up annual leave. So it was time to take some of them. So what did I do? Well I stayed out of trouble and stayed safe. I just read about Frank’s adventure with a snowmobile! Sorry to hear that Mr. Frank! I’m glad you are better now. Anyway we spent Christmas at home and mainly caught up with friends and took a lot of photos. Last we we spent a week down at a beach house on the NSW South Coast. A beautiful part of the world if you ever get a chance to visit you should! We spent the week going to the beach with the kids and soaking in the ocean which was fun.
I wasn’t completely away from technology as I had my laptop with with the Windows 7 beta freshly installed and the new Windows Live Essentials beta. As on any holiday photos are a big part of it and this one was no exception. I used the new Windows Live Photo Gallery beta to enhance photos and even do a quick panoramic shot of the beach where we spent most of our time. Check it out below!
I took 4 photos from the one location, selected those after importing them from my camera, then chose Make Panoramic photo and in a few minutes I had a great shot of the beach!
So this week I’m catching up on email and my Windows 7 testing. I will be posting regularly about that and the newly released beta of Windows Server 2008 R2. Good times are ahead.
