"Focalplane" has opened a Flickr account

Son Pete has had one for quite a while and today I decided to join the fraternity of Flickrs. The system is interesting if a bit quirky at times but the basics are well explained and there are some nifty uploading tools. I have decided to limit all uploads to a maximum dimension of 800 pixels. This gives a good image but not one worth stealing for a 10" x 8" print!

The future for focalplane.com looks to change now that Flickr and Blogger have indicated their potential roles for the future. This site might become more of a static showcase (portfolios and travelogues) while Flickr can handle images and Blogger can handle weblog opinions. So far I have only got one blog going and that is busy demonstrating how bad science has dominated the debate on climate change.
