Don’t let me get bored.

This was a weekend of rain and high winds. Between rain storms, I was able to sneak in some yard work (we have this weird green stuff all over the yard, and it’s not algae).  After said yard work, I’m proud to announce that I have the largest leaf pill on the block. Even though much of it blew back onto my yard last night. There were also some indoor tasks on the “honey do” list, but after it all, I was still bored, bored, bored. While my wife watched Jimmy Johnson drive his way into history, I jumped on the computer, and performed a few upgrades to the website.

  • Upgraded application servers
  • Changed themes
  • Added a “comment filtering” (now I don’t have to dig through 50 + spams a day)
  • Added Gallery software
  • Reformatted the more recent posts to use the Gallery viewer
  • Updated the reporting
  • Installed RSS feed software (to be displayed once I’ve worked out the theme)

With the time remaining I created an online store for another site (opening soon).

I apologize if this caused any odd behavior over the weekend (not me, the web site).

I’m still trying to figure out the best way to integrate the photo galleries into the site. I like having the images in with the text, of the individual dive descriptions, but the slide show does not link in as well as I would like. It might have to be a “click here for the gallery” scheme, but I’ll keep working on it. Personally, I’d prefer if the slide show appeared in a new window, rather than redrawing the screen.  It just does not seem to fit right to me.

However, now that it is gallery based, it’s much easier to upload images.  I’ve got more shots to integrate in. It was just difficult to do before.
