Pictures From JoCo Cruise
Posted on February 1, 2015 Posted by John Scalzi 16 Comments
Morning! This post services as a test of my terrible, terrible Internet connection here in the middle of the Atlantic, and as a way to make you jealous of all the fun you’re not having here on the cruise right now. So please to enjoy the following photos.
Yesterday’s sunset as we left Florida.
Jonathan Coulton and band performing “Re: Your Brains”. The crowd, naturally, has turned itself into a pile of shambling zombies. As they would.
This morning out at sea. There looks to be a little rain on the horizon.
The online Internet connection is in fact as terrible as advertised. I tried simply sending these pictures to Flickr and the Internet connection choked on them because the files were too big. In order to get them to you I had to sideload them from my phone to my laptop via bluetooth, make smaller versions in Photoshop, and then upload those to WordPress’ media tool. There’s probably a simpler way to do things, which I will figure out presently (before anyone notes it, I could just make them lower resolution when I take them, but I’d actually like to have decent-sized pictures of the trip, not just ones I can immediately upload), but at the moment it’s kinda silly complicated, so, again, don’t expect too much this week (also, and again, I expect to be busy here on the boat in any event).
Before I go, however, check out this awesome shirt from Deirdre Saorise Moen, based on my Twitter reputation as a “Universal Blame Accepter” (i.e., if you need someone to blame for something, go ahead and blame me, since I already get blamed for a lot of ridiculous things anyway). You better believe I’m getting one when I get back to the world.
Enjoy your Sunday!
Your internet seems ok, very good. Thanks for sharing and have a nice day. Greetins from Brasil.

Passeando Pelo Mundo
I’m sure you’ll want to know that the upper Midwest is getting another snow storm. 4″ – 6″ expected in Detroit and more to the south. So you got that waiting for you back in the world.
I’ll go ahead and blame you for our next big storm and it’s 10-12 inches of snow.
There is a very good and simple picture-resizing tool (“PixResizer”) available at http://pixresizer.en.softonic.com/ . Recommended for making easily transmissible copies; I’ve used it without any glitches.
Looks like you’re having a blast. Most excellent. And that shirt design from Moen is awesome.
Yes! It’s all your fault! Everything from the extinction of the dinosaurs onwards…
I speak as an official Universal Blamer of course.
I suggest the Pixlr app (used to be Pixlr Express), not just the resizer. Open the file, hit save, and it gives choices for saving original, large, medium, small, or custom.
And, of course, you can play with the photo itself before you do that.
. . . then again, you probably won’t see this, so . . . nevermind.
If you happen to use Picasa for photo organizing, there’s a button labeled “email” that automatically sends a reduced-size image to the people you list. You can edit the messge too. I use this in conjunction with Gmail which works well for me. I think it can handle email clients other than Gmail.
Gimme a Jack sourmash and yup, all my fault (PS: I like the shirt).
I’m one congressional district south of JS and the rain giving way to snow and colder temps is all his fault. Not sure why.

Someone should put that “Universal Blame Accepter” logo on a bottle of smooth scotch whiskey.
I almost fell over laughing at the image and caption: “Re: Your Brains”. The crowd, naturally, has turned itself into a pile of shambling zombies. As they would.” Were they Republicans?
