1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Actually yes I do. I built a site using Wordpress as the core, made it ecommerce capable using Paypal as the payment gateway so no fancy SSL PCI compliant coding or nonsense required, real time USPS shipping quotes and so on. I just revamped the entire thing so it's a work in progress. If you're going to do it then do it right with your own domain and then find a good lab to work with for making your prints.

    I presume you mean the top one? It's at the 'Afsluitdijk', on the bridge over the A7.

    If I worked there I would've stolen a bunch! Don gave out that Leica M2 like it was nothing to an acquaintance/neighbor ;)

    Cool and thanks. Have fun wherever you're headed.



    I have two Godaddy admin accounts and about 50 sites I admin. What I did was install the program directly from the hosting panel into a fully hosted domain. No bullshit sub domain or anything like that. I need full domain level access for some of the stuff I do or when I have to modify code. Anyway it's about as painless as painless can be. Is there anything specific you want to know?

    Yeah, what Wordpress plugin you used to get the visual effects on the site. Or the storefront. Etc. Do goDaddy use cPanel?

    CPanel is available in Godaddy. I admin sites with whatever it is they use as default. It looks cPanelish but I don't care what it is as long as it works.

    The specific commerce plugin is Market Press. The general look of the site is controlled by a theme. In my case it's called Anan with some custom code cut into it. Beats the hell out of coding it all from scratch and themes are cheap or free.Other elements like the weather and so on are side bar widgets/plugins. I have something like 40 plugins on my site. Some you see some you don't. Out of the three CMS systems, wordpress, drupal and joomla, wordpress is by far the easiest to deal with. I "inherited" an online newspaper and it's drupal driven and we're thinking about bringing it back to life but first it needs to be converted to wordpress. Drupal is tolerable. Then there's joomla and well it just sucks. I'm currently building a new site for a client right now because the current site is using joomla as the CMS.

    In honor of my being in Tokyo, some pix of the Imperial palace. Sadly, it's tough to get close enough for a clear shot from a good angle, so I did my best.

    A77 or A99, A77 or A99? It took a while but I decided to go with an A77 with a 17-50mm f2.8 full frame lens. Now I have to wait for it to be delivered. This is going to be a long week.
