I was expecting to blog a little less frequently than I had been but I didn’t expect a 2 month delay in posting. However I have been busy during this period. Tasks I have been working on include:
- Moving my websites to a new hosting platform. This was necessary because I needed technical coding features that were not available on the old platform.
- Reorganising my photo galleries. This has proved to be more time consuming than I anticipated. I nearly have completed the first gallery and hope to publish that within the next week or so.
- At my camera club, there has been a change of committee and I now have a role in the new committee as the webmaster. This has entailed the setting up of a new website for the club. This also uses Joomla in a similar manner to that I am working on for my website. Have a look at www.bungaycameraclub.org.uk – I am quite pleased with the progress.
- The payment system I have been using for my website, Google Wallet, has been terminated – Google are progressing other methods. So, I have been researching other options.
- Finally, I have been upgrading my PC including a clean install of Windows 7. This in itself was quite a long task, especially with the amount of software I have installed. But this task wasn’t helped by the PC repeatedly crashing on me. To cut a long story short, there was an issue with the graphics driver (which was the first thing I installed after Windows) – using an earlier version as eliminated the problem. This lost me 2-3 days on a job that was expected to take a week!
So, photography has taken a bit of a back seat for a while…
