They say that the sense of smell is the most powerful, that it taps a direct connection to your brain’s memory center. A brief, passing odor can instantly transport you back to the past, to childhood, and flood your mind with images.

The aroma that triggers one of the strongest emotional and psychological responses is that of freshly-baked bread.

What moment in your life comes rushing back with that smell?


For the month of February (2005), I am posting a link to a different "Flickr friend" each day. It may be a person you already know, or a completely new discovery, but it’s someone whose work and vision I feel you might really enjoy.

I call it the "Flickr Daily Photog Pickr," and today’s pick is Saseki : www.flickr.com/photos/saseki/

Memory best answer:

You need more, smaller cards.

The longest video you can take is around 17 minutes. The largest video file is 4 gb, so using larger cards will only result in lost files when the card gets corrupted.

Memory cards are NOT for storage. Your computer or DVD discs is where you need to save your image files, still and video.

You must format your card routinely to prevent card corruption.

Here is how digital image work flow is supposed to be.

* format your memory card in the camera you will be using it before using the card
* at the end of each shooting day, copy ALL the image files to your computer
* once they are safely on the computer, format the memory card using the format feature on the camera.

It is better to have eight 4 gb memory cards than one 32 gb card. Large cards will only make you lazy, forgetting to copy the images to your camera and formatting the card routinely

To show the use of the multimemory plugin in Munin to monitor easily memory leak. As this Perl services was processing around 5000 DNS answers per second, I finally figured out that the the issue was coming from a specific Perl module use (Date::Manip). That’s another good reason to extend munin to match your needs.
