Potential Outage / Coming Attractions

So, I’m planning to add a photoblog to the offerings here on imladris.mit.edu.  In particular, I’m thinking about using the so-called “Yet Another Photo Blog” plug-in for WordPress, since I have a decent amount of experience with WordPress and I already have 2 WordPress installations on this server.  However, as I was looking into adding a photoblog, I realized that having 3 separate WordPress installations would be a pain, since it would make 3 times the work for me when I want to upgrade to a new version of WordPress.  So, I’ve decided to try to consolidate things and run my blog, Heather’s blog, and my new photoblog all from the same WordPress installation.  How is such a thing possible?  Well, after looking through the documentation at codex.wordpress.org, I found the Allan Mertner/Stephen Rider symlink hack.  I plan to try to get this running in the next day or two.  However, I’ve had enough experience doing things like this to know that it rarely goes as smoothly as one might hope.  So, be forewarned that this blog, and Heather’s blog, for that matter, could be out of commission for a day or two.  Once everything is set up, I’ll post again and let you know where you can find my new photoblog.  I have a pretty big backlog of pictures, both from my ~20 rolls of film (with 4 more yet to be developed) and from the 600+ pictures that I’ve taken with my Pentax K10D since I got it, so I hope to be able to give my readership a picture a day for the foreseeable future.
