2 Days to D-Day, December 1!

We launch in two days - the result of over a year of work, and the reason why my blog posts have been so sporadic! LOL:

2 Rachmaninoff Songs from Ocean Grove, NJ

Even though my video editing pipeline cranks slower than molasses in Alaska, i'm really pleased with the way this video turned out - here are two achingly beautiful songs by Sergei Rachmaninoff, sung beautifully by my good friend Jacquelyn Familant during our summer recital at the Great Auditorium in Ocean Grove, NJ:



Enjoy!

Amazing touch-free screen touch

Yes, i did a double take too when i read the description of this video file, but once you see this, it makes perfect - almost simplistic - sense! I love how Scoble makes mention of how useful this webcam software technology could be for conductors to turn pages (might be a bit harder for pianists and other instrumentalists - maybe it could learn to recognize us sticking our tongues out at the page?)

A Dangerous Phishing Email from the supposed IRS

Folks, in these tough economic times, the number of email and web scams is bound to increase exponentially. Here is an example of an email i just received that showcases one such "phishing" scam:

After the last annual calculations of your fiscal activity
we have determined that you are eligible to receive
a tax refund under section 501(c) (3) of the
Internal Revenue Code. Tax refund value is $189.60.
Please submit the tax refund request and allow us 6-9 days
in order to IWP the data received.
If u don't receive your refund within 9 business
days from the original IRS mailing date shown,
you can start a refund trace online.

If you distribute funds to other organization, your records must show wether
they are exempt under section 497 (c) (15). In cases where the recipient org.
is not exempt under section 497 (c) (15), you must have evidence the funds will
be used for section 497 (c) (15) purposes.

If you distribute fund to individuals, you should keep case histories showing
the recipient's name and address; the purpose of the award; the maner of
section; and the realtionship of the recipient to any of your officers, directors,
trustees, members, or major contributors.

To access the form for your tax refund, please click here


This notification has been sent by the Internal Revenue Service,
a bureau of the Department of the Treasury.
Sincerely Yours,

John Stewart
Director, Exempt. Organization
Rulings and Agreements Letter
Internal Revenue Service


Ok, kiddies - can y'all find the spelling error in this email? Shame on the supposed "IRS" - or perhaps, appropriate given that the misspelling turns out to describe a castrated male goat...

Needless to say i removed the hyperlink and added the bold/underline manually to show where it had been. To be absolutely safe, don't go near suspicious hyperlinks and delete the email. If you absolutely need to confirm your suspicions, then as a Windows user you can right-click the link, select "Copy Link Address", and paste it safely in a separate non-linking program (like a Notepad document). In this case, the "click here" turns out to go to a site called "mail*fivestarcollision*com/refund*html" (periods replaced by asterisks - DON'T GO THERE).

Please be careful. Ta-ta for now!

Finally!! Pictures from Prague!

After struggling with guilt over enjoying all of our Prague photos floating across our Vista screensaver (gorgeously done, by the way - not EVERYTHING about Vista is bad;) i finally broke down and started to look into online photo sharing sites to make the sharing of happiness easier.

I've used Flickr for a few pictures, but frankly it looks pretty plain jane as a presentation tool. One other concern with "freebie" photo sites comes from the possibility that pictures could be deleted at a moment's notice (extreme circumstances, granted, but it's possible). Another concern is the limiting factor of upload quotas and size restrictions.

I've decided to go with SmugMug, a photo site that seems to have the approval of Walt Mossberg from the Wall Street Journal. The only freebie option is an initial 14-day trial; basic service costs around $40 for unlimited photo uploads and ad-free presentations. I'm going with the power user account for about $60, which allows for more editing options as well as the ability to upload DVD-quality video files - again, with an unlimited amount of storage space!

I've uploaded 2 galleries so far - here's a link to the "Day 2 - Day 3" gallery slideshow. You'll need to have Flash capability on your computer to view this. You can also click on the picture below to jump right to the slideshow:



Here's a link to the "Day 1" gallery:



Coming soon: Day 3 and 4, containing the visit to the Prague Conservatory and a whirlwind sightseeing tour of Prague!
