About a year or so ago I noticed that a lot of pictures from some of my older posts were no longer displaying linked pictures. These images were hosted on my Flickr photo site, which has become a bit of a dinosaur. Unfortunately, at the time I could not see an easy fix, so I ignored the problem.
After writing up the kids’ yearly posts this month, I was reminded of the problem, and this time it really began to bug me, so for the past few days I’ve been hacking away at this issue. There was no easy way to do it; I had to go into each blog’s code, find the picture IDs, look them up in Flickr, download the image, re-upload it onto my own server so I would be no longer beholden to Flickr, then make the necessary HTML corrections.
Do you realize how many pictures I have posted of the kids, cats, and other sundry items over the last ten years??
What a mess.
But it’s done! For the most part. I haven’t yet dived into my little 1999 Europe Trip excursion posts, and once I got back to about 2006, the Flickr trail ended and I’m stuck for the moment.
So, if you want to relive any of my fantastic posts, you should have no problems — as long as you keep it between 2006-2017 and don’t go for the European stuff.
After all, who could forget Hot Girls?
And of course, there was the one about Renton’s small children. An oldie but a goodie.
