Aha! He says, having just read the manual and realised that although his last camera defaulted to having the power-saving turned on, the IXUS 700 seems to have been delivered helpfully configured so that if — say — you are stupid enough to leave it on in your bag after fully charging it on Thursday night, it will quite happily stay on all night and all the next day so that it has gone flat by the time you want to use it on the .
The camera is now configured so it turns itself off, thus hopefully avoiding future tantrums by its owner.
Adrian Tritschler's stuff
My website, an agglomerative mess, probably half-eaten by a grue
Vanity site? Technology experiment? Learning tool? Blog? Journal? Diary? Photo album? I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you…
I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.
Its all been here a fairly long time. Like the papers on my desk, or the books on the bedside table, the pile just grew… and it all grew without much plan or structure. I try not to break URLs, so historical oddities abound.
Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried PHP, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on Emacs Org mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is Org mode and hugo.
