Today I wrote some Korea holiday blog posts for my photo website and in the evening I went out to photograph the sunset.

Various stuff

I haven't done any blog posts for a while because Blogger had some problems. They seem to have fixed most of it, though the last couple of edits to blog posts seem to have been lost. I was waiting to see if they would fix that, but it's been a couple of weeks now and they haven't, so I guess that data is lost forever.

While you could complain about this, database problems will occur no matter who you're using. Only one morning's worth of data was lost, so it seems Blogger has a fairly robust backup system. I would guess (and hope) that they perform daily backups of the database. Anything more than that would probably be too resource intensive to be practical, anything less than that and you risk loosing too much data (IMO) in event of database failure.

This morning I cleaned my bathroom sink, then took some photos of Blinky-il that I made a few weeks ago:

He is a mix of Kim Jong-il and Blinky Bill.

After that I spent quite a while adding captions etc. to my photos in my picasa gallery, which is where Blogger stores the photos you upload to it.

I cleaned all my cameras and lenses, then we had lunch. In the afternoon I did some vacuuming and some more work on my mario light stencil.

In the evening I watched an episode of Star Trek TNG and Moomins (Polish) with Mauser and Bo. After that we went on Animal Crossing, then I finished my Mario light stencil. The box to hold the stencil still isn't finished yet though.
