Our college-wide system just went out for an upgrade for at least a week.

Now, this means that there is a lot of work I can't do, but it also means there is a lot of work I can do that either does not involve the system, or I can do parts and put the rest in the system at a later date. It means that the crisis mode has to stop for a while, giving me time to work on stuff that is also important (federal reporting, scholarships, etc) but has taken a back burner to all the freaking CHAOS!

Why, I might even find there is a desk under these mounds of crap, I mean paperwork.

And when a student says "but, but, but...wah" I can reply "I'm so sorry. There's nothing we can do at this point. Rest assured you are held into class, and we'll talk in a week." To quote zippyt: buh-bye.

I'm not saying this is a great way to do it, but I have folders set up by year, and then within each year I have sub folders by day for each day I took pictures. The naming convention for these subfolders is YYMMDD, so folder 070526 contains all the pictures taken May 26, 2007.

Then in Windows, I have thumbnails turned on. This shows thumbnails on each subfolder for four pictures in that folder. Normally that's enough to find what I'm looking for.

Since 1999, I've taken 25,386 digital pictures organized in 880 folders using this system. I've been wondering lately how to do a better job organizing. I don't go back and look at the old pictures that much because the majority of them are nothing special. There are probably 1000 gems out of those 25K pictures. I think I need to create a "greatest hits" folder of some sort so I can deal with a smaller number of just quality pictures.

Maybe I should get a premium account in Flickr or Google's Piccasa and put all the good ones on the web where I can put captions under them and share them. I hesitate to create something good that will be controlled by someone else though.

(Regarding photo organization) In MS Outlook you can assign categories to e-mails, and each e-mail can have multiple categories assigned.

I wonder if there is a way to do something similar with photos (and other files). Then you could assign a photo to the category of "Wildflower" and "Hiking" and "Interesting," or some other label showing that it's a picture that you particularly like. And another picture could be "Wife" and "Hiking" and "Rocky Mountain National Park." Then when you group by category, each picture would show up in each of the appropriate categories, but without storing multiple copies.

This is how it works for e-mails, so it seems like something like this must (or should) exist for other files.

[This discussion should probably be in the Technology forum.]

whear your CUP ,,,,,,, Dude !!!

Oh and Congrats !!

Dagney 06-06-2007 01:34 PM

Congrats Griff! Best of luck in the dog and pony show next week :)

Three things in the Dagney-home to rejoice about today:

I've been looking for a job since I quit/escaped my old one in January. Well, this morning the long awaited phone call came. I was offered, and accepted a position that I wanted badly. I start in a week, make more money than I did, doing less work than I was, with set hours, no travel, and a 10 minute commute. Life is good.

My side business is taking off, I have three orders for wedding invitations coming down the pike - custom design, the whole kit and kaboodle. The extra money is going to surprise my husband with a new camera for supporting me while I wasn't working. Life is good.

My brother and sister in law had their second child this morning. Every one is doing well. Aunt Dagney is smacking the snooze alarm on her biological clock, but otherwise, everyone is healthy. Life is great. (She's so CUTE!)

Thanks guys! hmmm... body armor...
Looks like you hit the trifecta Dagney. Excellent.

BigV 06-06-2007 01:54 PM

what makes you think I'm happy? does this look like my happy face? I didn't think so. Bugger off.
