As I’m still recovering from the thought of a Knight Rider movie … this will be brief.

At long last (though a small addition), I’ve added two scans from the wedding proofs. Once I’m stateside for more than a few days, I’ll scan the negatives for color and figure out what I’ll do about the B&Ws. Also, randomly hacked links to various sizes of each image, including originals from the camera/scan. Let me know if anything is broken.

It’s late and I’m going home.

More Tweaks

My apologies for being so very lame and not posting any more uninteresting and/or mildly crudlike content. [Which reminds me of every VW Trends magazine ad "Get your Cams from Mild to WILD!!!"]. But I digress.

Mr. T would pity me and doesn’t have time for this kind of Jibba Jabba.

Been working on some random stuff [which won't really hit the site for a few weeks]. Though I did note the server is at 198 days of uptime again. A few may know the system was taken down at 212 days 198 days ago to install another HD.

Minor Adjustments

Already using MT 2.51 … thought it might be nice to migrate this massive data store to something a bit easier to manage. MySQL was already up and running on one of my boxes. [It's been lying around doing nothing except holding a few dusty tables.]

The scripts run like a top to convert from BerkeleyDB to MySQL. Unfortunately when you add a user or change permissions in MySQL a reload is necessary. It’s not as much unfortunate as the fact that I forgot about that. D’oh. No wonder I couldn’t connect.

If you use MySQL with MT [and thus already have PHP and MySQL running] go take a look at phpMyAdmin. It takes less than 5 minutes to setup and makes life easier for simple admin functions. Including nice things like exporting to XML.
