Introduction to Instructions

i keep forgetting to mention a few things...

i've been running into what i have been perceiving as ‘resistance’ by some family members whose names begins with 'B's.
i'm not sure what this means but; From your end, If you’re not a B Person—
Then i would like you to consider recruiting more people to participate in this project.
As it is now;
There are only The Eight Currently Living Sanborn Children,
And a few somewhat secretive peripheral family members.

Who else might know who these people are in The Snap Shots?

One complaint is that this project requires a lot of typing.

Perhaps a viable solution to this;
Is to find someone that is a good typist, A really good typist,
And have them come over, And type while you talk.

If you can't think of anyone like this off the top of your head,
Maybe you could hire a professional typist for an afternoon,
Or if that sounds too expensive, Try recruiting a typist from your local highschool.
Maybe you could trick them into thinking they're part of some kind of Historical Community Project, And they could do it for School credits...???

Another suggestion that i might make, To make it more fun,
Would be to invite a bunch of people over and discuss the pictures while someone is typing up all your comments.
Be sure to have plenty of Liquor Available so that people will say the darnedest things.

Be sure that the typist is only allowed soft drinks, coffee or tea.

The Flickr Account has lots of Keen Features that might make a cursory examination of large sets more enjoyable, such as The Slide Show feature.

This Option is available in the slightly upper right hand corner,
Either above the pictures when you've opened a Set,
Or-- To the right of The Side Scrolling Pictures when you're looking at individual pictures...!

It's difficult to explain all these features, When there are so many options...
You really need to just fool around with everything to see what happens when you click on them...???

Besides Adding Comments to all the pictures i've posted from The Abby's Repository...

i would really like to see you contributing all the pictures that you have in boxes around your house.

This would require you to Start a Flickr Account...
Or Equivalent... There are lots of other Internet Services like Flickr...

Or Post your pictures on a Blog...

Starting a Flickr or Equivalent Account or a Blog is usually Free or very Cheap.
i don't know how they can do this, but somehow it works out like that...???

Uploading your pictures is the easiest part.

The Tedious Bits are Scanning them ( 600 dots per inch ? )
And then Arranging them into Collections & Sets, Assigning Tags & Labeling them.
But if you set aside a little time every few days, you can get a lot done.

And i think that not only will people in the family enjoy looking at our old dead people,
But perfect strangers as well...!!!

Doesn't this sound like fun...!!!

( i would like that to be a rhetorical question,
But if you haven't answered it yet, On your own,
The correct answer is— Yes! )
