So I’m pretty sure I mentioned I got a new camera. I started using it this past weekend, and I’m going to enjoy shooting with it (some of those photos may be available for viewing right here on this website soon)!
As I imported my images to the photo-catalogging software that I used, I realized that my system for storing pictures is a little bit antiquated; I used to keep a certain number of pictures “sync’d” between my laptop’s hard drive and the server. Thing is, how often do I really haul my laptop around to show people pictures (unless it’s a special event)? And secondly, it seems like it would be a lot easier to work on editing pictures when you have them stored locally, versus on a network.
So I trashed the database that my computer had built of the pictures, I did a total reinstall of F-Spot, and I’m starting over with a local storage directory on my desktop machine that will be backed up nightly to the server. Seems like that fits in a little better with the current state of affairs.
I also overslept this morning and need to start getting ready for work soon, I’ll have to catch you up on the rest of my weekend later on.
Have a good Monday!
