Mobile Fun

In honor of getting my new phone setup, I present you with some goodies:

Buster checks out my new phone while I take his picture.
The first picture I took with my phone.

In fact I’ve been playing with Gallery as an online photo album. I’ve set one up and even got it interfacing with my phone, so now I can send out an email with a picture attached to it and it is instantly posted to my photo moblog album. (That’s why I was so interested in getting email to work on my cellphone.) The interface is still pretty ugly on the backend. I need to clean it up more, but it works. These guys will do it for you but it kept bouncing back at me with password errors when I tried to use their service.

[Update: I would recommend not using the scripts at the “interfacing” link above. There’s some problems with them. I found a better method. Follow the link in my trackback section below for more information.]

I’ve been using iPhoto and a .Mac account to setup my photo albums. It’s so freakin’ easy it’s hard to say ‘no’ to. But it’s also a one-trick pony. I can’t do that whole moblog thing with it. Plus I have a lot more space on this server.

Now I just need to setup Gallery to interface with Movable Type. I love my job but it would be cool to figure out a way to get paid to tinker as a side thing. 🙂

Oh, and if you’ve got a cellphone that plays MP3s, here’s a sweet-ass little jingle for your ringtone. Those of you who know me and the cellphones that I’ve owned over the years, know that there’s one particular song that I have always programmed in for my ringer—not the one I’m giving you—I have to stay somewhat unique. I am very excited that now I can actually use a bit of the real song on my phone. I’m not going to tell you what it is, but I will say, “I pity the foo’ who don’t love my ringtone!”
