And the bugs just keep on coming… No, this time I’m not talking about colds and flus, but rather software bugs that silently but incessantly seem to creep into software whenever you least expect it, and result in a clusterfuck of epic proportions.
Around a week ago I wrote about this monstrously big website finally being in its new home. Everything seemed to be working well. However, then I tried to work on updating my gallery—something that I’ve been wanting to do for months now.
Unfortunately less than 5 minutes into that little exercise, I found out I could not edit certain aspects of it. Nothing vital, just the freaking categories, which makes the entire gallery useless!
After much research, attempts at fixes, a clean re-install: yup, still broken. Unfortunately the support for that software (4Images) is just barely one step up from useless, so I have made the decision to create a new gallery. :mad: Yah, because I have so much time on my hands, and the hundreds of hours I have spent on the existing one were what? A good learning experience for me?
I’m writing this to let you know that Bassic Sax Pix will be undergoing some major changes over the next while. How long is the next while? That depends on my schedule.
In the meantime, if you’ve sent me photos of your horns to include on my site, please don’t take it personally if I haven’t uploaded them. Quite simply, I can’t. I will do so when I get the new gallery up and running however.
I haven’t yet decided what to do with the original gallery. I might leave it exactly where it is, and not do anything. Or, I might choose to copy the images over to the new gallery.
Please don’t let this news discourage you from sending me pix of your horns though. I am very much looking forward to beginning a new gallery and only having large, high quality saxophone images. (Truth be told, there are certain things about the categorization that I wish I could have had a do-over on anyway, so now I guess I get my wish..)
If you have some photos you care to share with the sax-playing world, please use the email button located on the right side of all the pages on my site, to reach out to me. Thanks!
