    Unlikely.

    Google is famed for their ability to read text in images and turn it into metadata. That's not even new technology.

    For the record, I don't really care. I quoted it on purpose....

    Re: Odd Issue With Uploading Images

    Much of what you're describing is impacted by your connectivity at the local level. Suggest you reboot and give your local provider time to work out any connectivity issues they may be experiencing.

    Re: Bill Hamilton and Mid-Continent Music

    Bill was a constant in the early days of the internet on CoMando, then on the Cafe for years. Was really bitten by the music. Sort of lost track of him the past few years though remember seeing a few...

    Re: Loars at Carterís

    There's a lot flying under the radar that's selling so fast it's dizzying, or doesn't even appear anywhere. Music Emporium sold $22K worth in two Ellis Mandolins in a couple of hours yesterday that...
  16. Mile Twelve loses two members, gains two more
