Triptych two

The Art of Noise – Dragnet:

“This is the city.
I work here.
I carry a badge.”

Well, one of the above lines is true for me in relation to this photo. Can you guess which?

Olympus PEN-EE, Kodak 400TX (again: you couldn’t have guessed?) @ 200

On a totally unrelated subject… I’ve tried to implement some workarounds which should solve some issues with this site. I’d like to hear from you whether or not commenting using Safari on iOS is now possible. In the meantime I’m looking into a replacement for pixelpost. Even though it mostly does what I want it to do, it is getting a bit outdated. I’ve installed WordPress locally on my Mac mini and I’m currently investigating whether or not I can tweak it to my liking. If so, the difficult decision will come: start over with a clean slate? Import all photos (and comments) and continue? Or “kill your darlings” and start with a subset of photos? I really don’t know yet. For now, I will continue posting using pixelpost. I’m guessing a possible changeover will be a long-term project…

    I like this Triptych, Jacco… too bad the third frame there is a little too askew in relation to the others, but I really like it.

    So, is this where you work? What a cool setting to!

    As for your site, as you have I am sure, I have viewed it in Safari on my Mac… Just now, for the first time, i checked your site on my iPod Touch, and it looks and works well. Though, the singular calendar line at the top, if one were to navigate by it, they would have to pinch out a good deal to make it big enough be able to tap a date with the end of their finger… though the same could be said for the calendar on my site also, so…

    I like how you made the box to add a comment already expanded… before, visitors probably missed that they could leave a comment, but now they can see that they can, so that was a good call.

    Yeah, at the end of April, I gave WordPress (WP) a try, and in a couple weeks time, I was able to accomplish what I had been working on this whole year, with the old way I used to author and create my site! On the 16th of May, I was far enough along to take my site out of it's five plus month long beta stage, and officially call it live and open for business…. though I still have a couple things left to do, and it isn't really completely done, but close enough for me to officially throw it out there. I am really happy with having gone WP, the way that it automatically organizes everything for me, it's a lifesaver!

    For you, it really wouldn't be much different of an arrangement than you have had with this PixelPost, it would function the same, but as you said, would be a more updated and current method for you to use. And I am sure that it would possibly be able to easily import your history from PixelPost… I am not too sure with that though, since I pretty much started all from scratch, but know I have seen documentation on the WP site about importing previous blogs into WP, hopefully it would not be too arduous a task for you to do so.

    Jeff, your guess (or deduction) is correct. At the end of the year, we will move to a new office building, so I'll enjoy the location while it lasts.

    Thanks for your sharing your thoughts and experiences on websites, WordPress and more. It is encouraging to read that you're happy with WordPress, gives me the confidence that I should at least continue to investigate that path.

    yes the problem I had always was that comment line was not pssible to expand. Now I am Thai form iPad from Singapore. All seems to be working fine, but still I thing you will find that word Rees not only give face lift to your site but with many thingsbit does on background you will gain more visitors. If we talk about importing your blog in wordpress, the best waybis to make sure that your current site generating RSS feed, but full one including images as attachments. (look at RSS 2.0 spec) Than when you install wordpress to your existing provider into the subdirectory (wp for example) you can import all your post using RSS In it live. Than you stop your current web by doing permanent redirection from root of your web into the subdirectoriy where wordpress is installed.

    And the image 😉 I love it, seriously one of the better one on your site from last time, congratulation.

    thanks, and thanks. I like the idea of how to import the existing images into WP, and I will look into it. It might take me a few more months, but I'm "playing" with WordPress, tuning, finetuning, then deciding to change to a whole different template and starting all over again. So, don't hold your breath, but rest assured, I'm working on it, behind the scenes. I like what I've seen from it so far.

    Oh, and… thanks for your comment on the image itself 😉
