    So one of the limitations of the Blogger software is that it doesn't archive daily. So the index page will now contain the most recent 100 posts, but the Day Pages will have everything from those days, including appropriate pictures. The preindex page has everything from before Sept. 16, this AM.

    While they have not yet been uploaded, the bulk of the "explanation" pages exists and are ready to go. Page layout and color choices have flickered thorugh various versions over the last couple of days.

    Currently, static images form the South Shore poster collection are being added to the Day Pages and testing of the DLink camera is going on. THe camera arrived this AM, and it's actually a piece of junk. Other photo options are still being explored.

    You know, base level, I suppose I could have just bought a bunch of disposable cameras, abused an hour photo developing every night and posted pictures that way, though my portable scanner. But I've been avoiding buying a decent digicam for awhile now and could have madea lot fo use of it over the last few months.

    Anyway, work continues apace.

    T-minus 2 days and counting.

    Testing out this new fangled apparatus web publishing software. Hmmm. Should I list every damn Kinkos and CyberCafe between here and the Pacific along the route?
