  • Any Suggestions?

    - 4 years ago - 13 comments
    So..... it seems ipernity is closing down. I have over 100,000 photos stored here, and my biggest problem is that many thousands of them are linked to my blog that I have been running for over 6 years. As I understand that means that all my past blogs will suddenly will suddenly become photoless..... bit of a problem for a photoblog. I now have the mindnumbingly tedious job of downloading 100,000 photos and then reuploading to an new storage site. I doubt ipernity support staff will be bothe…

  • the new ipernity sucks

    Less choice. The format of my page has been changed without my permission. I HATE the white background. Less information. I now get much less feedback and information. More clicks to do almost anything... it is too frustrating so I am simply going to keep all future uploads private and look for a better service elsewhere.

  • cannot upload.

    According to Ipernity "Overlimit upload for this month You're over the limit of your monthly upload capacity. Even though you haven't reached your upload limit, your uploads lasted 50m 53s on our servers (the max duration is 3h per month.) In that case, you are allowed to complete your uploads during off peak activity hours." What is strange is that as a free user I have not uploaded a single file. Apparently because I uploaded files with my pro account before it…

  • Earthquake and Tsunami

    Many thanks for all the messages of concern that you have sent in the past few days. Yoko and I live far from the affected area and have no friends or family there so we are alright. The scale of the disaster is now becoming apparent, with the death toll rising hourly. Most of the damage and deaths were caused by the tsunami, and while Japan has a very good disaster warning system in place that manged to save untold numbers, the tsunami hit so quickly that there was simply no time fo…

    I have been thinking about putting together a book of my photos, and I know there are many sites out there for this purpose, Blurb, Lulu, etc. I would be interested to here from anyone who has done this. What tips do you have? What mistakes did you make? What has been most successful?

    Sorry I can't be active at the moment. Ipernity has become unusable. 2 minutes to change pages. Blank pages Screwed up pages. No other sites are behaving like this so its not my machine.

  • Happy New Year of the Tiger

    - January  3, 2010 - 6 comments
    Best wishes to all of you and your families for the coming year!!!! Apologies for not being a very "active" member. I don't "chat" much, rarely respond to comments, but do answer questions. I guess I'm more visual than verbal :) It doesnt help that ipernity runs very slow for me. I tire of reading waiting for ipernity transferrinfg data from ipernity... waiting for ipernity transferring data from ipernity it takes from 20 to 120 seconds to go from one page/photo to another if I a…

  • Cool architecture

    On my second day in Fukuoka I spent my time visiting some more architectural marvels. There was Canal City. a shopping mall and hotel complex modelled on the sandstone canyons of the american west. and then on to Acros and then out to a man-made island with a remarkable structure named "Grin Grin" Of course I visited shrines and temples, including the first Zen temple in Japan several shopping malls.... and did a little research on winter fashions in Jap…

  • An afternoon in Fukuoka

    - January 20, 2009 - 6 comments
    The slideshow is now complete Between Christmas and New Year I took a quick trip down to Fukuoka, the largest city on Kyushu, a place that rightfully has gotten a reputation for its architecture. I arrived at the trains station at noon and headed first for the Momichi area, built on reclaimed land. My first stop was the Fukuoka Tower, but on the way I passed through a museum and a library I went up the tower and then passed through a kind of HiTech area of technology compani…

  • faster & faster

    I'm uploading pics at a faster rate now in an attempt to decrease my backlog. As you know, my modus operandi is to take a lot of pics quickly. I recently spent a weekend in Fukuoka. I took 1,000 photos, 96% of which I will post. As an experiment I recently uploaded a whole album in one day. Most of the pics have hardly been viewed. I did learn this.... Most of my viewers are anonymous.l Many viewers just look at the latest 3-6 pics. A few of you go through and at least scan what I've…

  • Season's greetings and best wishes for the new year!

    Once again I'd just like to say thanks to everyone for the encouragement that comes from your visits to my stream. Thanks also for your streams! I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that viewing everyone else's vision as expressed through their streams has contributed greatly to expanding my own vision. What a generous gift. I don't want to single anybody out, but I do enjoy the streams by people who post LOTS of pics. :) Ho Ho Ho!
