New Layout!

So I thought I wasn’t going to get to make a new layout this year “in time,” but it turns out I was wrong. =) Some inspiration and a good day’s work and well… here you have it.

I think I’ve gotten sucked into Flickr, I will probably go Pro soon…


So after messing with Flickr for a bit, I’ve got an issue (with Picasa as well). What I want, ideally, is to have the smaller version of the images I upload to always be 500px. Works pretty well for pictures that are not rotated (landscape), but for portrait type pictures, Flickr and Picasa are “smart” and will rotate automatically, however when they resize to “500px” they resize the width, which is actually the height since it’s rotated. I want the width to be resized to 500px, taking into account the rotation.

Any ideas on a solution to this issue? I’m thinking I could perhaps run a batch on the files and detect if they’re rotated or not, actually rotate the image and then wipe out the EXIF (or whatever) that says the image was rotated… but… I dunno…

Edit: Ugh, from the looks of it, it seems like Flickr will resize the largest dimension to 500px (no matter if it’s widght/height). Suck.

Flickr Test

.flickr-photo { border: solid 2px #000000; }
.flickr-yourcomment { }
.flickr-frame { text-align: left; padding: 3px; }
.flickr-caption { font-size: 0.8em; margin-top: 0px; }

Testing flickr. I suspect breakage is going to happen.

Woo! I live!

Well, camping last weekend was CRAZY. lol…

BTW, someone should tell Motorola they should have made the V8 SLVR the iTunes phone. All they needed to do is make the wheel in the center of it, a scroll wheel (like the iPod), not impose a 100 song limit, and walla, $$$! Instead they had to release that terrible ROKR. sigh

Of course, I kinda think Apple wouldn’t let them do that…
