Gallery has died again. It’s getting kinda irritating since it tends to do so about every month or so. I don’t think it is really the gallery program‘s fault entirely. I suspect that Dreamhost is cutting the processes off early and it isn’t handling it well.
It’s a pain not only because of the outage but also because I have to reload everything. There’s too many pictures though and it chokes. Even after loading them incrementally, I still lose the captions. (Version changes kept me from restoring the database.)
Flickr is cool. I like the geotagging and community bits. I’m tempted to drop the $25 to create an account for a year. (Since it will take a while to upload 10gb of photos 100mb at a time. Though smugmug looks pretty good, but it’s $40. There’s also Picasa which would be $25 for 6.25gb.
Honestly I’m frustrated since I have hosting. It’s kinda sad that there’s not a FLOSS offering that works well. I love the idea of trying to write one myself, but who’s got the time? Maybe someday.
