The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.


      simpsonized pass port photo

Today was a big city errand day. On top of the list was a passport photo, which finally gave me a chance to try out the Simpsonizeme website. I've tried the procedure in the past and it always denied my photo. Today Anna heard me grumbling at the computer and noticed that the site didn't seem to take enough time to scan my picture. She suggested trying it on the clunky Windows Vista side of the computer instead of the free wheeling Linux version I use most of the time.

Lo and behold that was the problem. A few minutes later it was done, but they seem to be stingy with giving you the complete download. They want you to email it to a friend and then they have to click on a link to view it. Maybe a select few will be chosen to form a spin-off show about a group of folks from the neighboring town of Shelbyville?
