Yeah, Yeah, I Know…

… it’s been far too long since I’ve posted to the dusty ol’ Deauxmayne. The sad thing is that I really don’t have much in the way of an excuse, aside from just the turning of the Big Blue Marble. If it would slow down, or if my life would, then I’d have more time for the fun things.

So what’s been occupying me?

Scanning has been a big thing. I’ve archived two full libraries of images this winter and spring, completing the scan of about 4000 images. This was a Big Deal, and I’m thrilled to have it complete. I’ve still gotta figure out how to get these collections displayed and indexed, but that’s a project for a different day. Preservation of the images is the big issue, and that’s done.

Sio and went to the Jimmy Buffet concert a couple of weeks ago. I’ll probably retroblog that separately, as there’s a bunch of stuff in my head about that extremely enjoyable performance. There’s even photos!

I’ve also been working on plans for the family summer vacation. I’m not ready to publish that yet, but trust me when I tell ya that it’ll be big, big, big.

And, as you’ve probably noticed, I’ve turned on the new theme. There’s still a bunch of work to get it working the way I want, but it’s time for a change, and I like where the author of the theme is going with it. My photo plugin even worked out of the box, so you’ll continue to see photos when they’re out there.

The change is part of a plan to get the Deauxmayne and to start having some common design elements. They look pretty different, and I think there’s good things to be borrowed and merged from both of them.

As always, stay tuned, and enjoy the ride!
