I have discovered how to create and embed QR codes, those strange looking square black and white checkerboard bar codes that direct you to a web site, picture, or Mars. The only problem is my cell phone doesn't have a camera. Shocking, I now know, since several people didn't believe me until I showed it to them. I've had it for years, it works fine, I can talk or text, even play games, and I can't bring myself to discard it. Oh yes, and the fact that the new Internet-capable camera-included phones cost more than my TV set. Practically.
This does present a challenge. I can put codes on every bit of media I use on the computer, print them on business cards and t-shirts and throw them out of airplanes to the populace below. I don't know for sure that they are sending anyone where I hope they are.
Enter my friend Mary. I print out a code, e-mail it or walk it the half mile to her house, she snaps a picture of it on her modern phone and we wait to see what will pop up in the viewer. This process isn't as much fun as it sounds since rework requires that the whole cycle be repeated, and I'm starting to lay out broad hints to my darling Randy that Christmas is coming.
