A quick note on Flickr. I have completely lost the faith. In general, it is a good service. The problem is that it doesn’t scale. We have 2500 pictures from 1999-2005. Flickr only gives you the option of creating sets on one level. The way it renders these pages is just not effective when you have 500 pictures in a set. And there is no way to create “sub-sets”. I am going to continue uploading to create a backup, but I will stick with Jalbum for our primary sharing until Flickr improves this feature. I should post it in the forums. Sub-sets!
Top ten 2006 predictions:
- Democrats will make gains in November, but not take over either branch of congress.
- Microsoft stock will slowly rise over the course of the year due to sales of their developer tools, xBox 360 and anticipation of Vista. (February, 2007)
- Sirius and XM satellite radio will lower their subscription prices near the end of the year in time for the holidays.
- The Jets will draft someone who plays horrible until he leaves the Jets, at which point he will become great.
- The Jets will win the superbowl. This time FOR REAL!
- I will start a new job at Intuit. (Fairly certain of this one. I will add more about this next week.)
- Matthew will be firmly entrenched all year in the terrible twos.
- Jared and Ethan will master swimming at the YMCA.
- Soldiers will continue dying in Iraq.
- The Lipka family will enjoy a banner year of happiness and joy.
Happy New Year to all!
