thanks to google my reasons for learning web design and programming continue to be squished out of existence like grandma’s old eyewear.
they pretty much just came out with a new feature on picasa – web albums. so now, instead of creating my own photo album on my computer and sitting through a long process of uploading to a server and double checking links, i can just select the pictures using Picasa and it will automatically upload them to a google server (Free!) and post them there. Plus the format is better than awesome. Here’s my first web album: Starred Photos. So thanks a lot Google, you’ve just taken the last few excuses i had to program and automated the process. in a way i love and loathe it.
i don’t know what else to say. this may give me the time to post my old web designs online for people to see what i did before the 21st century – back when i had to walk up hill both ways just to get to my computer desk and pound out HTML and CSS using my hands on a desktop computer – hours of work for a featureless photo album. Back in my day we really had it rough, so quit yer complaining!
i really do feel ‘old’ in the face of all this new automated stuff. i remember back when i had email. nobody knew what that was so i kept promoting it (cuz i wanted to email people!). Heck, i remember being on the internet using DOS before the GUI stuff cam out. i made my own business cards with my web site, email, and pager number on them. now a days this stuff is standard, and every 3 year old has a website, and soon a google photo album.
