Time To Go Pro

I had un petit crise the other day when I thought that my friend Flickr had deleted the oldest of my photos and trashed a couple of my Sets. As it turns out I had just surpassed the 200 photo limit of the free account, and while the photos are still there, I just can't see them. Phew.

So I've plonked my $24.95 US down for a Pro account. I love how that sounds. "Pro" I mean, I can feel my photos are getting better as we speak. I paid for it through PayPal so it take a few days for the payment to be accepted and the account upgraded, but then I get my photos back. The ransom has been paid, is in an airline bag in a locker at a Greyhound terminal, just waiting to be collected.

You'll be getting your own domain, next...

Needless to say, I can think of a number of other connotations for "pro"...

Morgan, I'm a "late adopter" so there's probably no point holding your breath on the "own domain" stizz... :-)

Mikey, so long as those other connotations refer to me being good at something, sure!

Andrew you sound quite cynical?

The Other Andrew said...

No, just a person who knows their own limitations. :-) My past history of being late to take up a) a mobile phone, b) a DVD player and c) MP3s - (I still haven't adopted those) goes to show that some things just can't be rushed...

You were pretty quick on the blog front, though...

The Other Andrew said...

I guess, although I riginally started reading online journals in the '90s. It wasn't until blogging software and free hosting became easily available that I started my own though.

I don't know about "good" but at least you get paid (grin).
