I just generated the QuickResponse-code for HF
Here is the code you can use:
(click right button and save)
Or just bookmark it...
I RSS the page and use google reader. Works on your smart phone and in your web browser ;)
If you stare at it long enough, you'll see a hammock hanger in 3D.
j/k, although feel free to stare as long as you like. :rolleyes:
Stupid person here, with a new smart phone. I see these bar code things everywhere nowadays, but am not sure how/why to use them. For what exactly would I use this HF one, for instance?
And, for the record, I rolled my eyes at the parents for not being able to set their VCR.
Well, you'd download your QR reader app there, start 'er up, point it at your QR code thingy and have the app read it, which would take you to the HF homepage.
I am quicker on the draw with just hitting my browser bookmark, but I guess for new sites, it could be good. I'm not one to stand in the way of progress (ok well maybe a little bit in the way, but willing to move), but still am unconvinced about the usefulness. Of course my iPhone is slow in starting apps, so that may factor in to my experience with it as well.
There is that gee-whiz factor I suppose.
Don't worry about the hurdle of new tech, you've got to learn to use everything, this is new "not natural tech" - think about small kids having to learn to walk, impossible at first - but fast becomes second nature, and pretty soon they'll run.... it's all the same with mobile tech and computers;)
I don't think it's a matter of understanding the tech. To me it always comes down to getting a satisfactory answer to the question "what problem does it solve?".
I really don't think this was created for folks who spend every day here. (<---Guilty)
However, take that code and paste it onto a business card format out of word or whatever. Now you find yourself in your local outfitter(or hardware store...or bank...or gas station) talking about hammocks...'cause that's what we do...and someone asks about find out more info...
Got a smart phone? Here scan this and check it out...
Or say someone is selling wares at Traildays and they want to promote the forums...the symbol could be included on a sign.
Pretty cool, Wintec.
