Some Creative Commons pictures I took

A hen and chicks plant that is growing in a pot at my house.

A minor hobby of mine is photography. I don't know a whole lot about it, nor do I have any fancy equipment (unfortunately), but I can get my smartphone (A florescent yellow-green Sony Xperia Z1 Compact) to take decent photos. I usually take pictures of flowers, and occasionally I get a decent photo of something else.

  Anyways, I want to share some of my favorites here, under a Creative Commons 4.0 Attribution license. What does that mean? Here's a quick overview from the Creative Commons website.

Using a 2010 smartphone in 2016/17 - Is it plausible?

My Sony Ericsson Xperia X8, running Android 4.0
A while back, I stumbled across a 2010 android smartphone, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8. I decided to get one, and one was shortly acquired for the extravagant price of 11.00, free shipping, unused in original box. In order to excuse my frivolous spending on this obsolete gadget, I challenged myself to get it to a point where I could use it as a 'daily driver', and have all the features I use daily on my current phone (an iPhone 4S).

  First of all, here's a quick spec list (Borrowed from Wikipedia):
Screen: 3.0-inch capacitive touchscreen, 320×480 CPU: 600 MHz ARMv6 processorRAM: 175 MB Storage: 128 MB Android 1.6 (Donut), Android 2.1 (Eclair) A few notes about memory: Most modern 2016 smartphones have about 2-4 GB of ram, 175MB is about 4% of that. Built-in memory is also minuscule, 128 MB is about 0.8% of 16GB, the standard low option storage amount for modern smartphones. Yikes!
That's what I've got to work with! Now,…

I got a car!

This is a Dooling "F" tether car. They were produced by the Dooling Bros company, in around 1946. What are tether cars? Good question! They're model race cars with tiny real engines, that are raced around a circular track, reaching speeds of up to 200mph. It was most popular back in the 1920's to 1950's, and there are still enthusiasts out there today.

The pressed-aluminum front grill. I think this actually serves a purpose, as the engine has to be cooled somehow...
  Last Saturday, my dad and I went up to Astoria to look at a Volkswagen Rabbit that was for sale there. (We did end up buying it.) On the way back, my dad decided to go look at a sailboat he'd seen on Craigslist. It was part of an estate, and since the guy who was there had been working in a barn full of stuff, I asked if I could poke around. I spied this in a box and was intrigued.


 Upon digging it out, I found that it was powered by a tiny little single cylinder engine. Anyways, the guy who …

Huzzah! "Happy Birthday" is finally in the public domain!

The original version of the song, which actually had different words.  In a different publication of the song, the lyrics to "Happy Birthday" were included as optional.
  One thing that's always irked me about having a birthday and being at a restaurant is how they never sing you the real version of happy birthday! It's always some cheesy sounding jazzy song, and while they're singing it, you and everyone else sits there, wishing they were singing the real version so you could sing along.

  It seemed pointless, but I never knew the real reason behind it until about a year ago. It's simple- the lyrics to Happy Birthday, until June 28th, 2016, were under copyright.

  Most people didn't even know this, that the song everyone sings at birthdays, a nationwide symbol of cakes, candles, and making wishes, was copyrighted. But it was. And so, restaurants couldn't sing it, because, while it was acceptable for small groups of family and friends to do so, anythin…
