New Photos of Julian
On a good note, I was able to reallocate some space on my .Mac account (remind me not to renew that blasted thing!), so I'm able to put more pictures up. I can't figure out what the problem was anyway. It kept telling me I was out of space, but even before I reallocated space, I was only using 39% of the available webspace. Oh well. Moving some of the space from my .mac email account (which I don't use), seemed to fix the problem, so I don't really care. Before I realized I could reallocate space, drmellow generously offered me some space on greg.cohoon.name. He even, um, kindly (?) set up a temporary web page up for me: http://greg.cohoon.name/estherchaya. Please note, I take zero credit for the content, and even less credit for the truthfulness of any information found on that site. Though I'll admit to being amused by the water molecules. :)

Since I was able to reallocate space, I decided to do some cleanup and reorganization on my homepage, which turned out to be a bigger, more obnoxious project than I'd been hoping. (Which is most of why I think I don't want to renew the .Mac account.... the interface is less than useful sometimes...it's great for throwing pages up quickly, but reorganizing them and editing them is not always the easiest...add to that, the fact that it's awfully expensive for not a lot of space and it's really not worth it even if it does conveniently work with iPhoto) ANYWAY. New photos are up.

Hey, how do those letters and numbers stick to the bathroom tile? Suction cups?

there's probably some fancy science term for it.... but they just stick. They're made of dense foam, so I think that when they are wet, the thin film of water between the wall and the letter creates a seal?

You do know, that since you are a paid users, you can also use LiveJournal to host pictures. Just go to http://pics.livejournal.com/.

I do know that, but since it's linked to my LJ name, I don't want to send that to all Julian's family and such. I don't have anything so private on my LJ (rarely the need even for a locked post, and even then, it wouldn't be the end of the world if it became public). But I still don't feel the need to publicize my LJ account to people I don't know so well. (Plus, I don't find it much easier to deal with. The .Mac account is about as simple as it gets to publish pages, but it's just a pain to change them)

what kind of camera do you have?

Those pictures were all taken with a Kodak Easy Share. I'm also using a Nikon N70 these days (a film camera). I think the picture in my camera icon is a Nikon D70 (the digital camera I really, really, really, really want).

yeah, there's a good reason for that.

Thanks for the pics!

but of course! Julian's an easy subject!

Yeah, I don't use .Mac for just those reasons. $100/year for 250MB of disk space, shared with your email account (and only ONE of those!) isn't worth it.

When we actually have time to get together, I can show you the system I use for pictures of The Boy. And I can point you at storage space for a lot cheaper than you're paying right now. You can even get your own domain name (and email addresses at your domain name) for less than you're paying Apple.

And Greg's page for you captures your essence better than anything I've ever seen. Especially that potted meat bit.

Yeah, I was going to call you about figuring options out. If nothing else, I need you to show me some things anyway, while I play around with the space Greg lent me. Since I don't use my .mac email address, I just reallocated space away from the email account. You had told me all the reasons I didn't want a .mac account, and you were right, of course. But after Julian came, I wanted to get some pictures up pronto. Emailing them to various people was getting tedious. Since the .mac account was easy and convenient, Seth said to just do it for now. Anyway, yes, I'd like to see what you do for pictures of The Boy. And yes, we wnat to get our own domain name. Maybe we should just find a time to PLAN to get together, instead of always saying "yeah, we should get together sometime in the nebulous future."

As for the potted meat, well, um, okay. Don't get too used to it. That page isn't going to be there forever...I hope.

(oh yeah... and at some point I have to convince you to come to OUR house to figure out something... we still can't get my iBook to see the printer. For that matter, we can't get my work laptop to see it either, but that's less of a crisis. Actually, I think my work laptop sees the printer, but refuses to talk to it)
