A very nice project

A small vertical slice of (Socal) life. Marvelously documented while it is fading out of existence.

It turns out that Google has fogiven for its past sins. The site exists again according to Google. I forgot when the ban started. It was certainly justified back in the day. Long story. Anyway, now it is google-legal again. With a cute little page-rank of 3 even.

In honor of this I bumped the image resolution of its pair play mode up by a notch. Screens got bigger since 2002.

data management

November 5th, 2006

Stu Maschwitz writes about data management for digital still photography

It is so very true. We can generate lots of data, some of it might be of potential value for us in the future. The filesystem keeps the it for us. But that’s about it. There is almost no help from the computer to really manage data. Yet that’s one of these things that computers could be really really good at: organising data. Spotlight was a nice attempt. But Apple of all companies messed up the interface. The underlying search technology seems to be working, but the interface is pretty much useless.
In order to find the ’spacehogs’ on my drives I had to write a perl script that shows me which data is stored in which folders (including it’s sub folders). Should be simple for the OS to just show me where those GBs have been going. Yet I had to gapher tape my own solution, which is never a good sign.
