This will likely be a long list on unrelated thoughts, so sit back. Enjoy the ride and the mess of a blog post. One hack I’ve long wanted to implemented here on this site is a continuously–updated photo gallery. The existing /photos section still serves its purpose well, powered by iPAP, a simple photo gallery […]
VPS hosting is the future. After quite some time using Dreamhost’s shared hosting service, I finally moved most of my sites to a Linux VPS. Not that I’m extremely disappointed with Dreamhost, it just so happened that I’ve been hearing good praises on VPS hosting when compared to traditional shared hosting, especially with Slicehost.

iPAP now has comments, thanks to Mathias’s wonderful work. A million thanks, my friend! This is one of the most sought–after feature, requested in almost every email inquiry I receive concerning the photo app. Development has slowed down significantly the past week with spare coding time becoming very uncommon.

Someone must be playing tricks on me, my photos section looks different. wink Yes, I know it’s delayed — but it’s almost here.
Some of you might be wondering where the MySQL version of iPAP is — so have a look at Hannu’s photos. Coding has not stopped for the past few weeks, and the codebase is now completely migrated to MySQL. I’m refining the administration interface, and will be working on the new template. Mathias has some […]
revolutionx.net has a nice set of wedding photos, presented through a well–customized iPAP install. If you have some photos on iPAP that you’d like to share, leave your link!
