Issues & Projects for September / October

  • Continued to update new 2.0 calendar software, adding back organizers and venues as time allows. Also troubleshooting several technical glitches with the software company. They are not particularly responsive.
  • Flickr issued a credit benefit for 2 months of Adobe Lightroom/Photoshop, so I took advantaage of that. Flickr Pro is $49.99 annualy and will renew in November. This benefit saved us $21.38.
  • My computer continues to get slower / lock up and I spend a significant amount of time waiting for it to respond, rebooting, etc. This, in addition to the fact that Microsoft Windows 7 will no longer be supported by the end of the year means we need to get serious about a possible upgrade.

Photo Sessions:

  • Play in the Plaza
  • Rural / Fall Scenes

Website Maintenance:

  • Technical issues:
    • Several issues surrounding the calendar. Working with tech support.

    • Still need to work on transferring data from Access into a Google Spreadsheet so we don't lose the information.
    • Website Overhaul - review log analysis, research technical options and trending layouts
