Site update

If you haven’t noticed, the photo galleries have been removed from the right side of the site. We decided that pictures of our family are better off stored behind some sort of permission wall, rather than available publicly to anyone who wanders by.

To that end, we’ve decided to store our pictures at Flickr, which allows us to determine which photos are public and which are for friends and family. For the uninitiated, Flickr is a free photo storage service. You can use your Yahoo account to sign up (does anyone not have one of these?) or create a new account from scratch.

Once you sign up, add me as a friend and then I can give you access to the pix. Or, email me and I’ll send you a direct sign up link that will take care of this automatically.

If you want to subscribe to our public photos, you can subscribe with this RSS link (using your own feed reader) or with this button to subscribe with your My Yahoo page:

As for video files, we’re still looking for the best hosting environment. YouTube seems like the best option but their recently updated terms of use make me wonder if there isn’t a better choice. Any suggestions?

One last thing then I’ll close out this bit of navel-gazing: I’ve been testing a new blog service called Vox, from the kids at SixApart, who created the Typepad service I use now. Vox is free (ad-supported) and currently invite-only. It appears to be a very nice way for non-technical folk to publish online and limit their publishing to just friends and family. So far, I’m liking what I see. If you want an invite, let me know. I’ll post a review of Vox here sometime soon.
