Camphone Thread

WELCOME TO THE CAMPHONE THREAD. In this thread we are sending in the pictures from our phones to the Internet.

Here's how you do it. OK? Note that the following instructions, while complicated-looking, aren't really complicated. They're not so intuitive, however, that you can follow them without reading them.



1. Register



In this step, you need to tell the system who you are and what phone you use. Use your phone to send an email to cam [AT SIGN] linkswarm.com with the word register in the subject. In the body of the email, put your username and a password like so...



For purposes of screenshotting, we're pretending your phone uses Outlook for email. (It probably doesn't, unless you're Meta.) Here we see swarmer WilliamSBurroughs wants to register his camera phone. He wants the password meepemeepa, which makes sense, right? Now, pick a password you'll be able to type in easily from your phone, cause you'll need to send this password in with every picture you email. Why? Because email is meep. So ole WSB didn't pick a real great password -- I would have used a couple numbers, personally, because this doesn't need to be super secure -- but Bill takes his password policy very seriously, so whatever.

OK, so you send this registration email off from your phone. In a couple minutes, you should get an email back to that address from the system telling you you are all hooked up. Or the email may mention some error. If it does, let me know. Every cell carrier does meep differently.

Now, on to the good part.



2. Emailing pictures



Use your phone to take a picture of something, and email it to cam [AT SIGN] linkswarm.com. Subject doesn't matter. Save yourself typing and don't use one. In the body of the email, the first word needs to be the password you registered, like so...



Here's Mr. Burroughs sending in a picture of something. The password he chose in step 1 is the first word in the message. This will meet with success.



3. Optional text



When the system gets your email, if the second word starts with 'qq', this text will be tacked on to the bottom of your post.



i expect this part to be among the parts that haunts me forever, much like the rest of the parts. Anyway, here we see WSB sending in some text. Looks like he's been hanging around schoolyards again.



4. The end result



Your photo will be posted to this thread under your username. In the future, if there's enough support for it, I'd like to figure out a way to let you control whether the photo gets posted to this thread, or a journal entry of your own. For now, this meep is goofy enough that I'm Keeping It Simple Stupid.



OTHER QUESTIONS:

Update: No longer sending confirmation mails when you mail in a picture. No one seemed to need them, and they're probably kind of annoying. You should get an email confirmation to your initial registration mail, however.

Mail is grabbed on the system every 60 seconds.

if you're having problems registering, let me know. I may have to do it for you manually. Wrecker's phone's email client, for example, has no Subject field. It'll take me 14 seconds so don't be shy.

if you're having other problems, let me know. Cell carriers are rapturously maverickal so I expect this to be full of glee.

If you need a camphone password reset, let me know. There's no automated way to do that yet.

No, this won't work with SMS. You want to help me figure out a way to take advantage of a free SMS gateway that will pass MMS messages with a high rate of success, please step to this meepa.

If your phone doesn't do email, I'm sorry, but currently you are meeped. Enjoy being the castout.

If you have problems or questions, post them to this thread. I'll probably take long-winded support experiences offline, but in general I figure this is kind of wierd meep and will confuse peeps and they may benefit from your stupidity being exposed publicly.

If you have retarded comments to make about photos in this thread, post those comments to this thread, just like anything else.

I posted this little story last night in the shout box, about how my throttle got busted wide open, and this is the little part that failed. :(



And this is the POS car that is out to get me. >=(



Long story short, November of 2008, I was in a car accident on my way to work and totalled my car, so I saved up every little penny I could as I borrowed my moms as I worked at night. January 1st of 2009, I lost my job and with the $800 I had saved up, I bought this.

It was chosen over other ugly cars like a mid 80's Mazda B series and some kind of VW... Maybe it was a diesel rabbit?

I originally wanted the B-Series, but since my dad was inevitably going to help me fix whichever I bought, I didn't feel like hearing him lectured me on how I'd bought the wrong car.

"Dad, can you help me? I need to replace the strut linkage and I..."

"AWWW, U BOUGHT DA WRONG CAH, I TOLD YOOZ. SHOULDA BOUGHT DAT MERCRY"

So yeah, now I'm stuck with this death trap and I have been for nearly 2 and a half years.

Ah, ok I see now.

And, don't worry. It'll mostly just be inhuman criminals that are hurt. Mostly.

@spankerchief

Also; Unattended boilers, pumps, chillers, etc. eventually = KABOOM. I'm gonna just sit back and patiently wait for the inevitable.

@spankerchief

Just wait for the riot when the power goes down at 11:30 on a Friday or Saturday night.

it was an meep thing for me to say. sorry. I'll work on that.

being broke sucks - especially when you are trying to have a vacation.

I wanted to come to the beach party but I was out of town on work (ok, really, even if i wasn't traveling i probably wouldn't have come up - i'm awkward in social situations when i don't know people - though a couple of y'all seem like you are pretty cool and i would have wanted to burn some good meds with y'all).

I've probably helped cook a dozen pigs on open spits (and one in the ground) and you nailed it with that bbq. Ive always envied people who can build meep like that. it is very cool.

You're serious about this? how much pressure does that boiler make?

I was talking about the difficulty in getting overtime re; Startrecordingnow's comment on just "getting some more money"
I used to work shifts with four other guys. I made a lot of overtime pay when one would miss a day or if it was a holiday(The powerhouse had to be manned 24-7)
A few months ago TCI (Taft Correctional Institution) decided that it could function with just one guy on a day(ish) shift taking care of the central plant.
For a while I worked Saturday to Wednesday and during the other two days the general maintenance guy watched the plant for me.
I still got some overtime on days like Labor day though, because I worked the weekend.
The company didn't like that and decided last week to just leave the plant unattended on weekends.
I'm sure somebody got a nice bonus for this idea.

1- What is TCI?
2- WTF are you talking about?

Recently I became the last and only powerhouse operator at TCI.
From here on it's Mon-Fri.
I can still come in at whatever time of day I feel is right, but I can never have overtime now.

I'm a shift kinda guy(If that makes any sense) so it's taking some getting used to.

@spankerchief

You should get more money.

Nope, but there was a pretty kick-meep lobster fest going on near the aquarium.
I am so meeping poor right now...

Hope you went to the yard house

Thanks man!

@spankerchief

I was going to suggest the same thing as MAM, but without the research.

@spankerchief

"Dictionary of Wisconsin History - Term: dolphin striker (maritime)". Wisconsin Historical Society. Retrieved 10 January 2010. "A short spar perpendicular the bowsprit, used with martingales for holding down the jib-boom. The position is such that a dolphin leaping at the bow of a vessel could possibly be struck by this spar."

Went to visit Grandma in Long Beach and spotted this:



I'm researching some old pics of tall ships and I was looking at the bow of this particular one.
Does anybody know what these chains are for?:

Yup. Definitely Halloween of 2012.
I've never had a really good Halloween party.

Also,
Here's how goddamned stupid I am;
See this?


This is THE SECOND used car I've bought the ex wife just to keep the stupid c#nt off the street.

There's a whole crappy story behind this, but I'll just say that I'm only doing the bare minimum of what's necessary to keep my daughter from following her mom into the homeless shelter.
