Our media library in WordPress.com has been revamped. It looks good! When I read about the upgrade, I got excited! Thought they’d added the feature I’d wished for, for a long time: The ability to filter featured images! I’m not alone in wanting this. Everyone who likes to change themes every now and then, must have come across this problem. If you have used featured images, then some themes might look stupid.
Not only the media library but also our elevators, here in the building, are getting revamped. ‘Modernized’ they call it! There are 160 units, which makes for a lot of people! When both elevators are working, you never think of how many people there are. I’ve often thought that you can live here for a very long time without ever seeing another person. It all depends on what time of day you go in and out … if it happens to coincide. Sometimes you see someone three days in a row and then you never see them again.
Now, there’s only one elevator working, and that makes a huge difference! We’ve seen so many people we’d never seen before, and it’s always packed! You have to wait for ages before it comes. I think there must be a security hazard, but I try not to think too much about it.
All this started the 24th of June. The reason I know this date, is I was looking for a photo I took with the phone. It’s a crane, lifting parts up on the roof to the elevator engine. That was the day it started. Today it’s 31st of July and they’re still not finished with the first elevator. Bleh!
The little flower, in the beginning of this post, has a bit of a history of its own. It was the first photo I ever took with a digital camera! We’d bought a Nikon in the clinic where I worked, probably in 1999. The doctors would be able to take pictures of all kinds of conditions … eczema ‘n stuff like that. We thought it was an awesome gadget — to be able to bring up the picture on the computer screen the moment we had taken it. No waiting a week for development, no worrying about film!
My blogging buddy, over at Touch2touch, wrote about a flower named Johnny-jump-up, yesterday. I saw that it was the same — ‘viola tricolor’ — that is also the provincial flower where I come from. In daily speech, it’s called Night and Day [Natt och Dag]. ‘Night’ referring to the the dark purple. ‘Day’, of course to the sunny yellow part. It has another name too, but I’ll get back to that another time.
