Gallery vs. Flickr vs. Something else

Tuesday, August 30th, 2005

I’m thinking about buying a Flickr account to post photos to. I’m up in the air about it. My giant photo site, which has more than 2000 photos, is hardly trafficked. It gets an average of only two or three visitors a day. I would like to extend that some. Flickr’s community would allow that to happen, but it doesn’t have a very good way to track statistics. I’m also a little annoyed with Gallery, which I’m using to run my current photo site. It’s a nice product and has a good API for things like Galllery Remote, but the package itself is bloated. I really don’t have time to write my own gallery software right now.

Visit to IKEA

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2005

I’m not a home décor kind of guy, so before I saw the giant IKEA store opening downtown, I hadn’t given much thought to them – but my trip to the store was quite an experience.Contrary to my preconceptions, not all of the furniture is particle board – some of it is real, unstained, untreated wood. The building is twice the size of the largest Home Depot and has two floors of showroom. It also has two parking decks and a regular parking lot. The showroom has small mock-up homes that served as demonstrations for how someone can live in small spaces such as 550 square feet.
