Sinclair: Down but never out, the eternal optimist is back
There is an interview with the big man on the Independent's web site.
Sounds like he is trying to find a backer for a revamped C5 - hurray!

It is available as a DVD ISO image via BitTorrent
Not being a torrent user I:
- did a quick web search and found the BitTorrent client
- clicked on the link above to download the DVD image
- burnt a DVD to watch on my TV using ImgBurn
Looks good too!

Digital camera frame
I bought a cheap / mid-range frame today to put on my desk at work.
It displays 800x600 which is adequate for my needs.
In order to squeeze as much data as possible onto my old 512MB xd memory card, I created two folders: portrait and landscape
I then created two copies of a free batch photo resizer that I found on the web. The first copy I renamed to PhotoResize800x600.exe and the second to PhotoResize600x800.exe .
I dragged the landscape folder onto the former icon and the portrait folder onto the latter.
The utility automatically creates new files with 800x600 or 600x800 in the file name.
Then I used trusty old robocopy to copy the newly created files onto the memory card. Nice.
