New photoblog

I installed this PHP-based software called Pixelpost and played with it a little over the weekend. It's pretty spiffy. It's free, which is excellent. Another thing I like about it is that I can upload a bunch of photos and then go out of town, and it'll post one a day while I'm gone. Which is exactly what I'm-a gonna do.

So for the next week you should be treated to a photo a day from last year's Burning Man trip, while I'm in the desert hopefully getting some more good photos this year.

Did I mention that my camera seems to be working? The one that's been sitting in a box for the past nine months or more? The one I thought didn't work no more? Well, I fired it up the other night to see if it might work, on the off-chance. And sure enough it works! Sort of.

The internal battery seems dead, so it won't retain the clock setting. So all my photos are going to have the wrong date, and who knows what other EXIF data will be wrong. And the LCD display still flickers strangely every once in a while, which is what is was doing before it died last year.

So I don't actually hold out a lot of hope that it'll last through the next week, but it'd be nice.

I was going to buy a new camera, but it would've pretty much cleaned out the bank to get the one I want, so this is better for now.

I like your ability to capture the world through the site of Mr. Crack. Many's the time when I wake up from sleeping on the ventilation grate of the glue factory and see the world just as you've shown it. God bless you young man for giving a visual voice to the demons in Mr. Crack's head.

Now one thing? they?re pomegranates not persimmons!

Hey Mark, any chance I can get a copy of "Sutro Tower from my roof | San Francisco, CA | August 6, 2005" at 1024x768 or better resolution?
