The Usual Stuff

Been back a week now, and last week was quite tough. Back to the client's on Tuesday, and three of the four days I didn't get home until 9 o'clock in the evening. It would have been four, except that I just dropped everything on Friday and headed off.

To make matters worse, I must have spend a couple of hours each evening going through the holiday photographs, tagging them and correcting them etc. This doesn't take long per-photo, but over the two thousand or so photographs I took, you can imagine it takes a little time. Plus, of course, even though very few of these photos ever get published in the album, they all need to get stored away someplace... (This break alone generated 20GB of images.)

Anyway, suffice it to say that after a marathon session Saturday, all the fiddling was done, and after an overnight batch job so too was all the sorting and storing. The published photos hit the site at 7 o'clock on Sunday morning.

Sad, eh?

Anyway, apart from messing around with photographs on Saturday, the weekend was pretty quiet. We headed over to Bournemouth yesterday, where Alice and I enjoyed fish and chips for lunch. Jacqueline abstained, she started a new diet yesterday which seems to involve drinking nothing but cup-a-soup! I jest, but it is costing her quite serious money and is all actually quite high-tech. She's pushing me to go on it too, although I think I'll wait and see the outcome first.
