Who knew?

I was starting the online application process for unemployment today and it seems you can't apply for unemployment until you are actually unemployed.  This does make a certain amount of sense, but abuses my orderly world of planning.  I know I'm going to be unemployed on Monday, why can't I tell you that now?  <sigh>

I'm about to start working on making the digital camera talk to my computer so hopefully there will be tattoo pics forthcoming.  One question though, for all of you cool kids who've been adding photos to your posts forever - where do you host them?  I know of nothing except putting shots in my LJ photos section and then sending people there but obviously there are better ways.  Should I get a photobucket account, or something else?  Any recommendation or advice is appreciated as I trek into the wilds of, like, 1998 internet abilities.  Heh.

I think I should start with free. That seems to suit my total lack of ability. Thanks!

I use Photobucket, and I am a Techno-Moron, so it must be pretty easy!

Heh- yeah, I get why you can't apply until you are unemployed, but it also seems like maybe they would appreciate someone who is organized, ready ahead of time and not screaming, "OMG!!! I am unexpectedly unemployed! Help me!!" I was too lazy to bother to apply when my last company went under. How hard is the process? (I really know nothing about it!)

The process doesn't seem too difficult it's just very specific - you need to have details for all of your employment from the past 18 months. Which is harder for me given that I work on contracts, and I think I'm going to need to enter each contract individually. I'm probably going to end up doing it by phone just because I have a few questions, and don't want to enter wrong things.

I use Flickr which is free with my Yahoo mail account, and I think might be free regardless. I haven't run into any of the problems I see with some Photobucket accounts where you might exceed your bandwidth limits.

The tattoo is beautiful, btw. Can't wait to see what it looks like after the next phase of work is done.

If Flickr is free I might go there, though my photos tend not to be very exciting compared to some of the shared stuff I see on that sight. But ah well.

Thanks - I'm looking forward to seeing what it looks like after Wednesday too.
