... every day before going to work? I have to admire that kind of dedication on a daily basis but is there any way to trim down this process so I can do it on the run before work?

I detect the faint whiff of nom de plume here...
... but just to give a serious answer for a moment: it takes a maximum of 5 minutes (probably less) in the morning to take a few pictures with a camera on self-time. It then takes a maximum of another 5 minutes in the evening to upload them to my computer, edit them quickly in Photoscape, then upload to imageshack using their free plug-in and then post them in the thread. 10 minutes out of a day isn't much, I don't think.

Don't discount the ready convenience of mens washroom security cameras.

I still await the man who will pioneer ATM withdrawal snaps for WAYWRN.

It wasn't long ago that several members were regularly taking phone pix of themselves while driving to work. I'm glad that's no longer popular.

No, I just have low photography standards, don't carry a camera with me to do outdoor/lifestyle shots, and am a really bad image editor.

I was considering using the security camera in the bar at work?

If its a serious question - The process is pretty much the same, but photos are on my iPhone4, uploaded to photobucket while warming the car up, and posted at random red lights on the way to work.
