Talk:Tools

OK, so uploads work. And the photos look great. But HUGE! Need to find a way to reduce...physical size, not pixels. It seems there must be a way to resize but it appears it requires thumbnailing [1]. Also, is there any way to lay out inside the wiki? Need to look @ 'pedia and see. Any hints to these mysteries would be great. From the interface, when you try an upload, you get the following:

Use the form below to upload files. To view or search previously uploaded files go to the list of uploaded files, (re)uploads are also logged in the upload log, deletions in the deletion log.

To include a file in a page, use a link in one of the following forms:

   * File:File.jpg to use the full version of the file
*
File:File.png
alt text
to use a 200 pixel wide rendition in a box in the left margin with 'alt text' as description
   * Media:File.ogg for directly linking to the file without displaying the file

Maybe we'll try some of those....

[edit] Gear thoughts

Followed by posting to the site or...is a wiki just fine for this? I assume at some point there is "sanctioned" content to be posted for the curious non-user on the non-wiki part of wikiGong. (Let's discuss. --Jjldickinson 08:08, 13 March 2010 (UTC))

Meanwhile, what about technology trends? Coming things? What could trigger a storm of interactive content harvesting? (Very good, fundamental question. How do we anticipate the disruptive technology? But the trigger might not be technological, I suppose. Where else could it come from? --Jjldickinson 08:08, 13 March 2010 (UTC))

The oil well candidate project has introduced discussion of low-Hz limitations of available equipment. Although this obviously constrains recording and playback of the Hemi 60 "61,000 pound vibrators," it may just as well be depriving us of an interesting range of the Golden Gate Bridge. --Jjldickinson 08:08, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
