Just a heads up for those of you that us my image archive.

Today I will be attempting to upgrade to from Coppermine version 1.3.3 to Coppermine 1.4.1 beta.

This version offers a lot of new options features. Most are on the administrative side, but there are a few cool user feature additions like password protected albums. Here is an incomplete list of new features:

  • advanced user management
  • exif manager
  • additional logging
  • browsable batch-add
  • detailed statistics
  • GIF support for GD
  • bridge manager
  • reset album properties
  • alphabetical category sort
  • help icons
  • improved xhtml compliance
  • picture manager
  • clickable keywords
  • expandable config page
  • emails in plain-text and html
  • plugin API
  • password protected albums
  • additional user profile fields
  • language fallback
  • server-side favorites
  • pics in multiple albums (keyword-based)


As you can see most of the improvements are behind the scenes, but there are some cool changes.

Anyway, expect some instability today.

The Coppermine upgrade is done. It looks like it was a success. Please go here and check out people pictures. While you are checking them out please play with the voting, comments and ecard features.

Thanks!!! :-)

FedEx must seek out the stupidest lawers. Take this story for example:

http://www.wired.com/news/culture/0,1284,68492,00.html

Down at the end we see this jewel from FedEx:

FedEx also said in the Aug. 3 letter that Avila clearly intended to operate a business from his website because he used the .com domain suffix, the "commercial level domain," rather than .net.


Let me get this straight... If someone buys a a dot com domain, they have sex with someone, end up making a baby, and they then post pictures of the baby on their website, FedEx says they must be trying to sell their baby?

Or if I make a bagel and put pictures online, I must be trying to sell it?

Dear FedEx,

Please do yourself a favor and fire your legal counsel. They are dumbasses.

Sincerely,
Adam Harrison

I just saw a post that reminded me of this joke...

Two rednecks are sitting at a bar, they both look over and see this beautiful lady eating fish dinner. A couple minutes later they look over only to see that the young lady was choking. One of the rednecks looks over to his friend and say's "I can handle this." He walks over to the young lady and says "Can ya talk?" The young lady shakes her head no. "Can ya talk?" Again the lady shakes her head no, "Are you choking?" She nods her head yes, with this the redneck lifts up her skirt and licks her ass. The young lady is so surprised she spits out the fish. The redneck proudly walks back to the bar and tells his friend, "Ya see that hindlick maneuver really works."

Hmmm.... I think I know why future religions will not herald me as leader of men...



Nibblin' on sponge cake,
watchin' the sun bake;
All of those tourists covered with oil.
Strummin' my six string on my front porch swing.
Smell those shrimp
They're beginnin' to boil.

Wasted away again in Margaritaville,
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt.
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
But I know it's nobody's fault.

Don't know the reason,
Stayed here all season
With nothing to show but this brand new tattoo.
But it's a real beauty,
A Mexican cutie, how it got here
I haven't a clue.

Wasted away again in Margaritaville,
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt.
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
Now I think, - hell it could be my fault.

I blew out my flip flop,
Stepped on a pop top,
Cut my heel, had to cruise on back home.
But there's booze in the blender,
And soon it will render
That frozen concoction that helps me hang on.

Wasted away again in Margaritaville
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt.
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
But I know, it's my own damn fault.
Yes, and some people claim that there's a woman to blame
And I know it's my own damn fault.

We just finished with my Grandfather's 85th birthday. This weekend he is doing the long ride on the bridge ride. I would be there, but I have a paintball thing I was invitedto with coworkers, and the coworker thing might be better if I'm trying to get hired as an employee eventually. Anyway, the birthday was fun. My Granddad brought his girlfriend and my uncle and cousins came over. A good time was had by all.

I know I've mentionned DJ BC before, but I can not get over how awesome his mash-ups are. But I think I especially like when he mixes rap with classic jazz. Before I mentioned a mash up of Ray Charles with The Jungle Brothers. The piano of Ray, the vocals of the J. Bro's, and some DnB style drums in the background... Wow... It sounds odd, but it works. But I think DJ BC's latest might out do that one... Coltrane with The Jurrasic 5. Fuck yea!!!

I really want to find more like this.

Oh, and I mention to a friend how DJ BC had a really good mash of Snoop Dogg with The Flaming Lips. It'll have you lighting the blunt in thirty seconds flat.
