Google Launches Picasa 3.0 Beta
Not content to rest on its laurels following the beta release of the Google Chrome web browser, the worlds largest search engine has released version 3.0 beta of its Picasa photo management software. Google are rolling out major technology upgrades to both Picasa and Picasa Web Albums, and these are largely focused on how we share photos with others.
For starters, there's a brand-new feature called "name tags" in Picasa Web Albums that helps you quickly label all the people in your photos, so you can organize and share your photos based on who's in the picture. Name tags uses advanced technology to automatically group similar faces together. That way, you can quickly label all the people you care about in your photo collection. Once you've labeled your photos, it's then a snap to do things like create a slideshow with every picture of you and your best friend, or easily share party photos with everybody who appears in that photo album.
The Picasa Web Albums website has received a clean makeover as part of the upgrade. As well as Picasa Web Albums, Google has released version 3.0 of Picasa, Google's free photo management software for your PC. Picasa 3.0 has many new features paked into it:
There's a slew of powerful new editing tools to retouch and restore photos, automatically detect and fix red-eye, or attractively add text to your images. Plus, there's plenty of the fun stuff -- we completely overhauled things like photo collages and slideshows, giving you more creative freedom over composition and layout. Not to mention a brand-new movie maker that can blend photos, video, webcam capture, and music to create customized movies that you can easily share on YouTube.

All the inline temperature sensors on the market I've found are crap or the wrong ID for my loop. Can thermal probes be simply placed in the loop. That is can I thread the cord between a barb and the tube so the probe is in the flow of the water. Also, can I dip a prob in the res?

To get around the wrong thread issue we have these ones here:

They have a G1/4 thread so you can use them with all common hose sizes.

We also sell the sensor seperatly so if you have any spare ports in you loop (i.e. reservoir) you can screw it directly into that.

Hope this helps. :)
