A few non-life related things. For one, photos are online in a new gallery system…so when you see me running around with my camera and wonder where all of those pictures went…they should be online now, or shortly. I’ve been scanning a few decades worth of negatives, and with the new gallery online, it’s pretty easy to share pics. The fun part is that I don’t have to keep making runs to have copies made of prints…every photo can be ordered as a print automatically.
It’s over there on the right, called Picturefest. I really don’t know why I’m still hanging onto that name…years ago I wanted something non-generic, but with the current explosion of blogs and galleries, being non-generic is fairly generic. Aside from the name, the rest of the gallery is purely set up for functionality – like being able to see photos at whatever size looks good on your display, being able to leave comments, pretty easy navigation, full searching by people in the photo/date/title/etc, ordering prints directly, and a few other little perks. So I have a decent lens, a decent scanner, and a decent gallery. Time to start taking decent pics.
more fun – the music server. I’m pretty much done testing it out. It works..woohoo! (for most people…sorry nasser, I have no idea what’s going on ) So if you get a song stuck in your head, don’t have it on your system, and need to hear it RIGHT NOW, get on the server, click on the song, and it’ll start playing in around two seconds.
I’m really on the look out for some of the really great classical recordings made in the past 40 years, so if you have something that isn’t already there, let me know. With a new place and sound system set up, the huge dynamics of excellent classical recordings are REALLY AMAZINGLY FUN to listen to.
