Don't you hate that? Go around and change all the clocks.
And a couple days later, there is one more you forgot. This
semi annual clock change, I missed one of the clocks
indoors. And then a couple days later (Today) find one more.
The clock in my digital camera.
My home has at least 24 clocks which need to be reset. The computer and
satellite receivers take care of it automatically.
My latest one was the water softener timer, reset just this morning. It
often gets forgotten after power outages until I'm in the shower while
it is regenerating. Horrible showering in unfiltered water!

Personally I think we should all switch to GMT and be done
with all this silly stuff. If you want more time in the evening
convince you boss to have you come in earlier.

I never mess with the one on the camera - I keep the date right, as
that's actually useful once in a while, but the exact time doesn't seem

What I really want is a digital camera that says *where* I took a photo,
not *when* :-)
If you have a GPS that can write to your computer- and a digi-cam with
exif info- then you're in business;
"GPSPhotoLinker adds GPS position and location data to your photos.
The latitude and longitude recorded by your GPS unit are linked and
saved to your photos. GPSPhotoLinker automatically enters the city,
state and country into the metadata."
[there are other softwares out there- I haven't looked into this in a
while as I still am gps-less.

Yep, that had crossed my mind before, and I do want to get a nice GPS unit

I'm surprised there isn't built-in GPS on the high-end consumer-grade
cameras now (although I think there might be on some of the "professional"
models for even more money).
Maybe I'm in a minority in thinking it's one of those features that'd be
Sure... I'm on Linux rather than OSX, but I think I've seen stuff in
the past that'll do the job there (and if not I'm sure I can throw
together a suitable script to do it!).
I like to keep a record, since we travel a lot and it's not easy to
remember where you took each picture. I used to have my wife keep a
log, but that didn't work too well.
Now I just find a sign or something that identifies the place, and take
a quick picture of that. Since the pictures are in order, I know the
picture after the ID picture is whatever it says on the ID. Sometimes,
I just shoot a picture of a brochure or menu, anything that has the name
In the early Kodak years, the cameras took 100 frames. They
were provided with a log book. The calendar on my digicam is
very helpful. Occasionally, I can't remember what date I did
something or other. I've scrolled through my digicam
pictures, to find the date and time I did something.
My digital camera embeds the time and date into the data
if the camera's clock is set to the correct date and time.
Depending on the software I'm using, the date and time will
be shown for each picture.
