Photographs by Frank

Blog note… Big trouble in paradise… Updates gone bad.

The careful observer will not that the large majority of posts no longer have any photos attached and the few that do (as a result of my attempts at recovery) have photos that do not match the content.

I’ll spare you all of the gory details but this situation is the result of back end software upgrades gone awry. I was forced to update the database software which completely broke the gallery software used to display the photos. The gallery software was old and unsupported. Updated to a new gallery program and migrated all 5000+ photos in 900+ galleries. The result… a real mess; galleries containing random photos.

I have no clue when, if ever, I’ll get this all sorted out. <Add sad face emoji here.>

Hopefully new posts going forward as of today (23 Feb 2023) should be okay… we will see.


  1. Oh, no! SO frustrating! Sometimes the old adage that computers make our lives simpler just does not stand up to reality! I sympathize with your plight.

  2. Frank, I was hoping for some “pirate” pictures after seeing the “Aaargh.” But no. . .

    I have had issues with my email accounts and sending things through but it sounds small compared to your plight.

    Looking forward to those PIRATE pix when you get the system back. . .
