"These photographs constitute an important historical record, as well as a data collection of interest to those studying the response of glaciers to climate change."

Special Collection: Repeat Photography of Glaciers

The National Snow and Ice Data Center/World Data Center for Glaciology, Boulder (NSIDC/WDC) archives both air and ground glacier photographs, and more than 4,500 of these prints are now available online via the Glacier Photograph Collection. Most of these glaciers are located in the Rocky Mountains, the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, and Greenland, with a limited number of photos from Europe and South America. Some photographs were taken in the 1800's. NSIDC is partnering with the NOAA Climate Database Modernization Program (CDMP) and the National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC) to publish this collection.

HotKey Shortcuts: Simplify Your Keystrokes (And Your Life?)

I don't know about you, but as an avid computer user (some might say "geek") for many years, before the mouse came into existence, I prefer to use the keyboard to navigate within and between applications. Call it habit, efficiency, or perhaps laziness, but it just seems easier to me.

So when the opportunity arises to learn about Hotkeys or Keyboard Shortcuts (Que?) for new/upgraded programs, I deftly Shift-Tab (in Firefox) over to the webpage to find out more. If there's a program you use that isn't listed below, email me and I'll be glad to find the shortcuts for you.

Keyboard Typing

OS Hotkeys

Internet/Web Browsers


Face it, your newfound hotkey knowledge will only win cool points with your small entourage of like-minded geeky friends, but it's a small price to pay for technical elitism, don't you think? (Ctrl-S)
