Photography Notes for the Oracle OpenWorld Bloggers

Well, some of this stuff got my interest. Let's review, shall we?

Eddie Awad:

As of now, you can use your cameraphone or any email program to email Oracle OpenWorld related photos directly into the newly created (unofficial) Oracle OpenWorld Flickr account. You do not even have to be a Flickr user. Just email your photos to:

future[zero nine]]ideas[at]photos[dot]flickr[dot]com

You can use the subject line to give your photo a title and the body to add a description. All photos will be automatically tagged openworld07 and added to the Oracle OpenWorld 2007 Flickr group and the (unofficial) Oracle OpenWorld Twitter timeline.

I'll probably be contributing some of my photos to that account. And, of course, I'll try to stick to the guidelines:

You can take photos. Partners may request that you don't take pictures of your booths. Also, we request that you don't take photos during sessions as it is distracting to attendees.

And watch out about taking pictures in older fast food restaurants:

I asked the department secretary if I could borrow the Polaroid camera (this was the 80s) to snap some pictures to help me in this retrofit. Before she could answer me, a voice rang out from one of the nearby cubicles "You can't take flash pictures in the restaurants!" It was Tony, a long time employee of the R&D department.

"Why not?" I asked.

"Because ..." Tony said, "if you use the Flash from the camera in the restaurant, the computer-operated cash registers will shut down!"

But that problem was solved, at least for this particular restaurant chain:

It was a single EPROM (a chip that can be erased by exposing it to UV light). It only had a thin white paper label over the window, The flash was strong enough to disrupt the EPROM's programming momentarily, causing the whole system to crash. The solution I proposed: black tape over the quarter-inch square window.

Could somebody make sure that the Thirsty Bear's cash registers don't have this problem?
