The Gallery Monkey!

It has taken a lot longer than I originally anticipated to get my Gallery up and running again – and even now I only have maybe half of my albums installed – but through no small effort, it is coming along nicely.

I don’t really understand why technology seems to have taken such a sudden turn toward the dark side lately, though. When I first installed the Gallery program on my server, it worked like a charm. This time, however, I installed and uninstalled the program no fewer than seven (7) times before I finally got it to work, and even then it required completely wiping out every bit of infrastructure I had in place in order to start from the ground up. It’s really very disappointing.

And now, the laborious task of uploading thousands of photos has begun in earnest. As I said, at this point I have maybe half of the albums uploaded already. This is partly my own fault; if I were willing to resize the photos things would go a little more smoothly, but I have thus far refused to do that. I may change my mind about this soon, however, since some of my pics really are huge, and there’s no reason anyone needs to look at a photo that’s any bigger than 1024 x 786, or whatever the largest size photo happens to be. Or even 800 x 600, which is what I think the medium photos are.

Anyway, that’s where things stand now. I am struggling through this, and hope to finish it within a week’s time… but then again, the best laid plans of mice and men gang aft agley, so we shall have to wait and see.

And speaking of seeing, the Gallery can be seen here: The Picture Perfect Life of Saru-San.
