The pros and cons of handmade tools.

Once upon a time, I had a [fingerwiggle]proper[/fingerwiggle] photoblog, powered by MT, that automagically scattered thumbnails hither and yon as I updated it.

Seeing as my picture output is only a fraction of what it once was, though, I decided to cook up my own little upload/thumbnailer tool. It works brilliantly (though I really need to get rid of the history.go(-1); how many times have I sworn to never use that terrible thing again, now?) but on weeks like this, where I've actually updated it repeatedly, I've got no way to let people know there's new things to look at without posting like this.

Posting in one column to mention another, so LJ/feedreaders will pick up on it, then expecting them to come here to read the post, click out to the main site, and poke through my photos? More than a leetle broken, yeah. I suppose the newest addition to my To-Do List can be figuring out how to make an RSS feed for my photos.

Until then, here's a direct link to the picture that spurred me to post.

    Wow. Now that's the kind of thing I'd hang on my wall, especially in the kitchen. Can you imagine it printed poster size and framed? Beautiful!

    What's worse, that I thought it said 'grooer' or that I was going to post 'or shooer?'
