New Picture Page is Up

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

I have set up my Flickr account.  I uploaded some pictures of our recent trip to California, and some pictures of the property. 

  Click on Erin’s picture and you can view them all.

 There are some differences I don’t like with Flickr, but I can deal with it.  Being able to add pictures to my posts is pretty cool.  Not to mention the ghetto way of getting to the Yahoo! Album. 

I will leave the Yahoo! link up until they pull the plug on it.  Once the link is removed, then you will not be able to view them again.

Let me know what you think.  Any requests for particular pictures?


Another change

Tuesday, September 18th, 2007

I have been notified by Yahoo that the Yahoo! photo album service will no longer be available.  At the end of the month the link on this site will no longer work. 

They have given me the option of several different services to host my pictures.  I have chosen one called Flickr.

I am not going to transfer any of the existing pictures from Yahoo! to Flickr.  If I was to do this it would take too much time and effort.  This means that all of the pictures on there now will not be available for viewing.  If there are any that you want to keep, download them directly from the photo album. 

This is a blessing in disguise.  One of the things I didn’t like about Yahoo! was the inability to write comments about what the picture was.  So I was forced to name the picture something absurd like “me, him, and that guy”.  But with Flickr I can write small descriptions about what the picture is.  That is the biggest reason I made Dario’s pages built into the site and the other pictures elsewhere.

The Yahoo! page will go away at the end of this month.  I have already set up my new account at Flickr, but I haven’t posted any pictures yet.  I am having issues getting the site and Flickr to play nice together.

As soon as everything is set up and working properly, I will let you know and make a new link.
