New image albums

Filed under: UTM Updates — Mike U @ 7:28 am

Over the past few days, I have added some new photo albums to the Gallery from recent storm chases — Sep 19th, 28th, 29th (all in western Kansas).  Check them out!  I’m pretty much wrapping up processing images from this year, although I still have a few more image galleries to add from back in May that have been sitting in my "queue" to be processed but haven’t gotten around to them.  After I get those processed, I’ll be making a "Best of.." album from all of this year’s storm photography, so stay tuned for that.

E-mail change from Hotmail to Gmail

Filed under: UTM Updates — Mike U @ 9:09 pm

I’ve finally converted my long-lasting "mesomike" e-mail address from Hotmail (MSN) to Gmail (Google).  I was getting sick of all the increasing spam, plus the fact that since I use Mozilla Thunderbird as my primary means of checking my Cox e-mail, I can add this new Gmail account to Thunderbird.  I’m trying to get away from anything "Microsoft Internet" as I can, and Hotmail is tied in with MSN… and since Microsoft’s primary e-mail client is Outlook, you can only setup Hotmail accounts (external from browsers) with MS Outlook.  So there ya have it.  Mozilla and Google pretty much reign the internet these days… I should have changed my "mesomike" e-mail a long time ago.  Soo… my updated "mesomike" address is now


Please make note of this!  It’s updated on my frontpage.
