Another RSS Feed Issue

I had a wrong setting in wordpress so that only summaries were being put out rather than the whole post, and that prevented readers from getting the images. I just checked and now google reader is getting the images as well as the text.

Funny how the web works.  I wasn’t using a reader at all until people started to say they were having problems reading my feed.  So now as I get it fixed, I get into the Google Reader and start adding a couple of feeds and man - this is cool.  In other words - the “learning curve” of the web is back and forth.  You ask me something and I learn something from you.  That is a great thing.

I’ve often wondered what would’ve become of me if I didn’t have the web as a technical and commercial platform.  You have to remember, I didn’t see my first computer until I was 28 years old.  Ancient in today’s terms.  And that computer was the blue Kaypro which I bought for $2500 with money I made from selling a screenplay called, Uncle Lou.

Soul’s of Accapella

Ah, they were good.  (In front of the Met.)  I could’ve listened to them all day.  Beautiful harmonies.  I always have to remind myself when I’m shooting singers that there isn’t going to be any sound with the photo.

Wordpress Upgrade?

I just got an email from my ISP that they’re upgrading my account and one of the things they said was:

If you have any databases, they will be upgraded along with your website. During they upgrade, your existing database name and database username will change to include 14970_ before them.

For example, if you have a database “sales” it will now be “14970_sales”. If you have a username “saleslogin”, it will now be “14970_saleslogin”. All database passwords should remain the same.

If you have any applications or scripts that connect to databases, you will need to update your configuration information. This includes things such as WordPress Blogs, Bulletin Boards, Forums, etc.

——— Any wordpress gurus out there that can tell me what exactly I’ll have to reconfigure?

Irrational Thoughts

I spent the morning at the Metropolitan Museum with the IR flash. (Remember - no flash.) I also photographed with flash in the various photography galleries where no pictures at all are allowed.
