A couple of items this week…Shorpy is a photo blog about what life a hundred years ago was like: How people looked and what they did for a living, back when not having a job usually meant not eating“. Check it here.

This week’s video

Ever had this happen? You have a long text document on your computer – perhaps it is 20 pages, or even more. You send it to the printer, and just as you click “Print”, you realize that there is an important change you need to make first. But it’s already printing! Panic! How do you quickly stop the printer from printing all 20 or more pages?

This may seem like a rather primitive and non-technical way of solving this problem, but the quickest way is to just remove the paper from the printer. The printer will discover that it is out of paper, and will send an error message to your screen. That gives you time to go to the lower right corner of the screen and double-click on the printer icon. Find your document in the print queue, and cancel it. Then re-load the paper in the printer, and you can print whenever you are ready.

I found a website this week that I found interesting. It is a photography blog. Each blog entry shows a photograph from somewhere in the US in the last 100 years. From the site:
