Updates Foti-Page

Oct 2013 - Dazzle Version

Zomaar een idee naar aanleiding van een paar oude VB screenshots. Toen was een screenshot nog echt met een analoge camera en de Hema fotocentrale dus.

imageFlip is hier (nog) niet beschikbaar want PHP is pas bij 5.3 Er komt zo af en toe een swastika voorbij, dat vind ik heel jammer

Maar de resulaten zijn verder wel vrij aardig.

2X Mei 2012 - Wegtikken Backlog

12521 Eindelijk aan de backlog begonnen.

12523 Na 300 foti zitten we nu begin mei 2012. Kan zijn dat er nog wat van verdwijnen, ben ff niet extreem kritisch geweest. Vooral qua varkentjes :-)

De foti van vorig jaar herken je aan (C) 2011-2012, dit jaar heeft (C) 2012. Leek me wel handig. Tzt de hele datum erbij? Kweetniet. Kan makkelijk met exif-functies, maar wat voegt dat toe?

12524 En na nog eens een dikke 100 foti midden mei 2012. Staat nu een kwart GB aan fotootjes online. Ik lijk wel gek.

12528 Backlog weggewerkt. CIAO!

Mei 2012 - DOC !

Okee. Ik had lokaal een paar tooltjes gebouwd om een hele bups eenvoudig af te werken. Maar denk je dat ik na een half jaar nog weet hoe dat werkt allemaal? No way.

Ik zie wel een paar knoppen maar wat gaat daar in? Wat komt er uit? Waar dient het voor?

Een tool is zo krachtig of zwak als zijn documentatie. En al inventariserende ontstond aldus een charmant reverse engineering tool. Dat ik vervolgens meteen ook maar gedocumenteerd heb.

Tja. En nu geen smoezen meer,dus aan de slag met 2012.

Mei 2012 - Achterstallig

Okee, ik geef het toe: sinds eind 2011 heb ik geen nieuwe foti toegevoegd. Guilty as charged. Heb nogal veel an de kop, en ben maar in m'n 1tje, dus kannie alles tegelijk. En ik ben lokaal alwel met 2010 begonnen maar dat schiet niet op en imiddels zitten we ook al weer zo'n 6000 foti diep in 2012.

Zucht.

Major uploade - final days of dec 2011

600 more pix in the final days of dec, 2011 is fully covered now. Thanx to some home-baked tools, adding new content, manipulating groups, etc, has become a lot easier. I prepare a new bunch locally and with a single click - and some patience - ftpes sends the lot here.

Sweet taste of revenge : when i added a page early this year to share the wonderful sight of a newborn lamb, i found i had forgotten so much about webdesign i even had to look up the img-tag... And now this sweet little lamb was present with 2 pix in the last bunch :-)

Minor upgrade - 24 dec 2011

Two more groups and an occasional refresh (auto-F5) . Added some 20+ pix of nov/dec .

Now the dust has settled somewhat and the new workflow tools seem up to their task, i'll be collecting some more pix of slightly older date : last spring and winter .

More Moves Forward - 18-23 dec 2011

So , it all started 1 month ago with 1 picture. Scripts have grown in size and complexity. Adding new pix became a tedium. And the pix lacked a short description.

The good news is : the one big general group has been split into a lot of small ones. I now have a kind of meta data interface on the local version of the site. It generates the scripts that are used by the scripts that generate what you see, and it does so quite flexibly.

The bad news is that i'm only halfway finished with the new project, so there's no image titles yet, nor is there a way to select specific groups.

There is, however, our great friend Random / F5. It now selects a couple of groups from the group pool.

Group is just another word for category. Examples : Sky, Park, Statue, Cattle, House, Town. Currently there are 16 of them, including the remainder of what was once the only one : General. For now the F5 subset grabs some 4-7 groups from the pool.

Great Moves Forward - mid dec 2011

A lot of content has been added since the previous note, and a lot of functionality as well. From dec 7-14 i've been working on the page's background, which by dec 10 was generating itself from a colour extraction that i implemented first. The watermark draws its colours from it now as well.

As the number of algorithms that generate these background images grew, alongside my fascination for them, i desired one more step : a Wall Paper Show.

Well, at dec 14 around 2 am it went live.

It can be reached by moving the mouse pointer towards the top or bottom on the pix-page, and then click the > button. Or directly, through wps

Minor but fundamental Update 11y21 - User-page

Implemented a user-page and group-level autorisations for Foti and Movies.

Minor Update 11y20

Added Food Pix.

When you Select A Pic by KeyPress (sap-kp), that key will be followed from then on.

So now when the page is loaded, there's only random following.

Update 11y19

A couple of pix added, as i may do from time to time without further notice. Today's Trip was beautiful, with a bit of mist near sunset.

Functionality added : keypress. One can now enlarge a smallpic by pressing the corresponding number-key (currently 1-4). JS is fun, except when one uses perl/php comment-symbol '#' . . .

Added as well : follow mode (default on for now). Whenever the followed minipic changes, so does the maxipic. 'Followed Minipic' may be random, but then the chance is 1 in '# of minipix'.

It's quite reassuring for my little old self to realize that this page started only four days ago with a single image (the 1 with The 'Eagle'). I learned a bit more about JS and did some tricks in PHP i never did B4. A Programmer's Life is never Dull :-) Especially not This One's.
