Noormal Service

Normal service will be resumed as soon as Zooomr finish moving servers and doing the 2008 update. No heckling from the back, BG!

Not me. I heckle from the front. I trust that you've been following my exploits in their MkIII bug list / feature list group (http://www.zooomr.com/groups/help/discuss/623/page10/)

It'll be interesting to see if they, sorry, he (Kris) actually gets around to clearing my deleted pics, there's no point in transferring them to the new servers, they'll just be taking up space. I still need to get them erased, some folk are misusing them in my name.

I've said it before (but deleted it from their bug list) and I'll say it again... Zooomr MkIII was top-heavy with hi-tech features but lacking in foundations, Kris built it like a Jenga tower. Let's hope that this new incarnation actually does what it says on the tin.

TBH, BG!, no. I'm way behind in all my work, stuff, information. I'm just flying over forums, blogs, podcasts and blox like that. Too much to do in the real world, and only when it coincides, do I dip back into the online side of things - or when I have time to.

I lurk in/over places, skim down and drop into googlereader items, or over forum threads, picking up bits of "information". As I'm tied to my desk with little time to get out places beyond a few minutes from the car for photos, I feel that the chattering masses can do without me and it's no great loss.

Most of what I have to say is blx anyway as it isn't relevant to one field or another. Not everyone can be an expert.

Of to get on with the rest of the scripts I have to mark. Only 1 done so far, 9 more to go).

Good luck with the marking. It's a shame you can't sub it out to us timewasters :-)

& how does zoomer make money

I'd guess at advertising and charging folk for the premium service. Like what Flickr does. Then there's the extra features, photo printing, books, etc.

One-stop shops are great. Helps the users avoid shopping around for a cheaper deal, when that deal may only be cheaper by a few pennies, but takes an hour of searching to find it.
