So I’m using another online file storage program: Box.net instead, as you can still do the exercises - editing a text document with Zoho, and uploading & editing an image (though it uses picnik not Snipshot, but you can add Snipshot) I think I might have a play with picnik's photo effects later.
Here's another storage device, the caption was "Wooden Google".

Opened in January 1888, the church building was sold off in 2006.
Tullyvea Church west of Tarranyurk, was used as a school for 12 months 1934-35, when the building across the road burnt down.

and a couple with a Christmas theme
This exercise was to cruise the LOLcat sites, and Blog about your favorite LOLCat, and include a link to it.
My favourite is the fishtank one, as it isn't staged and still manages to look cute. Interestingly when I first viewed it some time ago, it's caption was "pls not letting them eat mai toezz!!", but I think both captions work with the situation.

This time the exercise required that we create a scrapblog with the images representing our favorite books (gathered in Thing 27 - Photobucket) and integrate a few of the effects, then publish it and share it on flickr.
You can see my pages below or go to flickr and find it tagged: mccaffrey, harryp and scrapblogbooks (all participants use this tag).
For those without access to programs such as Photoshop, Scrapbook lets you use its features to be creative with your photos, or from other photo-sharing sites to have a play and combine them with fancy frames, stylish stickers, brilliant backgrounds, etc. Flyers and notices will never be the same again.

The mission closed in 1904 after the last missionary had died in 1903, and due to the government's assimilation policy which only allowed full-blooded Aborigines to live on the stations. The land was divided up and sold for farming, except for a small section on which the buildings still remain. These are the oldest surviving mission buildings in Victoria, and have been stabilised and partly restored. The historic station property is now jointly operated by the National Trust and the Goolum Goolum Aboriginal Co-operative.

We had to create a cover and post it to our blog, so here are a couple for when some multi-national coffee-table type magazine executive commissions me to tour the world on photo shots of exotic locations.
And yes I remember "On the cover of the Rolling Stone" by Dr Hook. Interestingly the Web2.1 link to the song is no longer available, here is my link.

Like flickr there seems to be a level of duplication and some average photos loaded, but I did like this illustration below (depicting Anne McCaffrey's book "Lyon's pride").
