Information for supporters and interested parties

1,5 km (1 mile) is the short distance I walked last Friday on the photo tour to the furthest point, the same place as last time. I was hoping for better weather conditions, but it was too foggy for landscape shots, so I made another study of trees in snow again. I have to admit that I'm obsessed with snow, I have to take every chance to shoot it, especially now that it's getting rarer and rarer. Since the last photo session on December 2nd, the snow had completely disappeared and came back a week ago, but due to my tight money situation, I only allow myself to use the car once a week (the place is too far to walk to), so I drove to the supermarket and then to a forest not far from the town of Winterberg. The parking lot hadn't been cleared of snow and my all-season tires didn't make it to the edge where I was supposed to be, so I parked my car in the middle of the lot. This time I had spikes on my rubber boots, but that was not necessary, the forest path was naturally covered with snow, lots of it. But my food intolerance attacked me again, I hadn't eaten enough, so my blood pressure dropped, and with no bench in sight, I lay down in the snow, my loden coat and lama wool hat keeping me warm. After 5 minutes I felt better. Next time I will eat something before doing another photo tour. Now it's Sunday and the frost is over, it will start to rain tonight. I hope Mr. Winter will come back, I still have some snowy landscapes to photograph. If you want to know where these photos were taken, most of them have GPS data in the metadata. With a program like XnView you can see it with one click.

Thanks to all my supporters for their support.

Piwigo Test Ended Negative

- Posted in Secret Lair by

The main problem with such a test is that I can't point the finger at the problem, whether it's the latest version of Piwigo, or its extensions, or my web server, or again the PHP version. It was incredibly slow and I couldn't work with PDF, animated WebP and mp4 files. And before I waste my precious time trying to get it to work, I quit and wait for the next version. This damn PHP is really getting on my nerves. Better luck next time.

Testing for Lair v2.5

- Posted in Secret Lair by

There have been a lot of gallery applications that I have tested to get the Secret Lair running smoothly, with a working user management and the ability to display all the necessary file formats.

Among these applications was Piwigo, but at that time it was not able to work with WebP formats. Now I have read that this application is able to work with WebP format, so I have to test it, especially if it is able to show animated WebP images. Although the name of this program is a bit unfortunate, it sounds like "pee we go" (sorry), but as long as it works, I don't mind.

So today I am going to test it and I will let you know if this is going to work. Keep your fingers crossed, please and thank you!

Freshly finished side project in two versions. I apologize that this is neither a movie poster of a new animated movie with a story I'd like to see, nor a short story I could give you (I'm not as talented as PhillipThe2), nor a comix that will follow.

Just in: If there are more than two images on a page, it can be considered a comic, and since it's pretty hawt stuff, it's a comix. Something much too rare to get from PhillipThe2. Also a great short story to go with it, all made by PhillipThe2. Thanks a lot Phil for spoiling us like this, keep it up.

New Link to Scheduler

- Posted in Work In Progress by

The scheduler list for current work in progress and planned new work can now be found here.

The first frame of this page will take longer because there are several Toons in it. Zack and Milo are already done, now comes Melissa (needs to be dressed as usual), next will be Joni and some other classmates.

Get it in the new special 2K, 4K and 8K folders.

The old special folders (gagala.org/2k, /4k and /8k) are accessible again, the web provider had to do a reset.

Thank you for your understanding and patience!

Blog App Now Working Well

- Posted in Blog by

It was just a small bug that will be fixed in the next version of HTMLy. I have a lot of usernames registered in my web browser and for better distinction I like to add a suffix to the username, like gagala_htmly. This caused an error. I renamed my username and removed the suffix, now everything runs smoothly. Thanks Dan for helping me so quickly, great job!

Short info about the OLD special folders of the Secret Lair: Still no help from the web provider.
