Well I am proud to announce that the photolog has reached a great milestone: over 5,000 publicly viewable photos are now online. The champagne is flowing freely at the photomatt.net world headquarters. If you haven’t been in a while, I just put up two portrait series, some fun stuff, and some narratives. I’m looking forward […]
As you have probably noticed by now, the menu looks quite different than it did before. The markup is still exactly the same, it’s just the lists have been styled with CSS to make them appear more like a navigation menu and less like, well, lists. I have also coded a new feature that when […]
Thanks to Mike for pointing out a problem with the comments. While debugging it, I rediscovered what a mess the b2 comment code is, but I’ve cleaned things up quite a bit now. Why is everything done through an included file? Why can’t you show comments, pingbacks, and even trackbacks at the same time? Just […]
Just a small request, if you have any links here on your blogroll or link list with the www. prefix, if you could change that to be just photomatt.net I would really appreciate it. I’m not sure how Google is going to handle the 301 Redirect Permanent headers so any help you can give will […]
I’ve torn everything down and started from scratch. As a result things might look a little Spartan for a few days, but is that really a bad thing? The new PhotoMatt.net will run faster, jump higher, and post your comments before you think of them.
PhotoMatt.net is now available in four syndication formats. I admit to being totally new to this sort of thing, and the feeds have really only been tested in my copy of Syndirella, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite programs. They all validate but there might be other issues I’m not aware of. Enjoy! […]
Well all the cool kids are doing it ;). No actually, I’m starting to get back to the site in flux idea that I was attached to in the beginning. Before I had a home-brew theme system and I was committed to adding a new theme every month and making it the default for that […]
Final answer: most common starting words are “I”, “Well”, “The”, “It”, “This”, “There”, “Okay”, and “Just”. Most common first letters were I, T, W, A, O, S, M, and then J and H tied. I feel like I’m in a episode of Sesame Street. I’ve decided to add all this neatness to the Zeitgeist so […]
Well I ran some regexes through all the posts in database hoping to clean them up a bit, and got rid of all the instances where I was starting with an unnecesary paragraph tag, now that it’s all taken care of automatically. I also took out some things so my RSS feed should be cleaner […]
If you had come to the site yesterday, there would have been about 4,483 photos, now there are 4,935. I know I haven’t had much time to post lately, but that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it. I would espescially recommend checking out 12-29-2002 as it has a real range of every kind of […]
The first of the Christmas photos are up. Expect many many more :). Also I feel the first picture in that album deserves a little explanation, as it is a dump of everything except my laptop stuff and camera I carry in my backpack. Many people often remark to me that my backpack is too […]
Due to certain extenuating circumstances, I have fallen a little behind on the photos. But don’t despair: I didn’t stop taking photos, just stopped uploading them. If you check out the photolog now you’ll see that all the latest and greatest are up. Enjoy. I’m really looking forward to taking pictures over the holidays, but […]
I almost forgot to mention this but I have a ton of great pictures I want to put online but I can’t because I don’t have any sort of memory stick reader, so if you’re in Houston and have access to one, please drop me a line. You will get a special prize on the […]
Last night was wonderful; I got to attend the Da Camera Dave Holland concert I had been wanting to see with Sarah thanks to some last-minute tickets from my uncle. The concert was really great, and as an added bonus I got to see Joe, who I haven’t seen in a bit. Afterward we had […]
Have you seen Alex in disco clothes?
I mentioned earlier that I was rearranging some things in my room, and now in the photolog you can see before, after, and what was added. The photos from tonight all look a little grainy because the ISO setting on my camera was set wrong. The noise can really be killer on my cam at […]
Okay I got the new photos up finally. 10-17-2002 shows the pictures of when my computer went crazy, good for humor purposes if nothing else. 10-18-2002 has photos from my busy Friday, including the Birds of a Feather concert and David’s gig at Cezanne’s afterwords.
I’m playing around with some new colors on the site. I think I’m partial to the blue/green that’s up here now; it just feels cleaner. I’m open to comments, suggestions, complaints, rants, and observations. Put up some new pictures up, as well as some older videos that I hadn’t put online yet. Now that things […]
Fans of the random picture on the menu should be happy to see it has returned in its former glory, and even faster. Barring any gallery disasters, it’ll stay there too. I’m playing around with the colors of the site, so if you see anything strange let me know. I take requests too :).
It seems from a fit of stupidity I turned off FollowSymLinks in my gallery .htaccess file so that’s why the photos haven’t worked for a few hours. Things should be back to normal now, so now is a good chance to check out the new albums I’ve added. I’ve added some new days, which aren’t […]
