Universidad Latina Photo Album Created

I have added all of the photos, that I took during the Universidad Latina Thanksgiving program, to the Chiriquí Chatter Albums. You can find the photos HERE.

UPDATE: I guess I should update this post. Unless you read the previous post, you may get confused and think that Panama celebrates Thanksgiving Day. They do not celebrate Thanksgiving Day as a national holiday.The program that Universidad Latina put on, was done by their English School, and was a cultural awareness program teaching the students something about the background and cultural ties that this day has with the USA. It is done so that the students understand Panama’s northern friends better

First Crack At Jalbum

Today, I loaded the first album that I converted using Jalbum. In 2005 I took a little trip to Lima, Peru and I thought the photos would be a suitable test.

Creating this album couldn’t have been much easier. Coppermine required me to upload 5 photos at a time. Where this album took about 30 minutes to build, including uploading all the photos to my host, Coppermine would have taken me all day.

Jalbum, with this skin, provided animation, music, watermarking and a lot of options I didn’t need. You can see the new album HERE.

Let me know what you think of Jalbum and the photos I posted.

Allen Hawkin’s David Fair Photos

Allen is a Panamanian, that posts on many of the Panama Yahoo groups. He posts photos, that he has taken from all over Panama. I am going to direct you to a current set he posted, that he took in the David area.

Allen does all of his talking with his camera. Walk with Allen as he takes you around David, and in the fair (both day and night). Words aren’t necessary. I think you will enjoy your time, seeing Panama as Allen sees it. Click HERE, then watch his slide show.

Chiriquí Chatter Other

I was just looking at the Chiriquí Chatter Photo Album and see that there have been 97940 viewings of the 2587 photos in the albums. The albums are organized by year and then by category withing year. If you have seen Boquete recently, you might like to see its photos in 2003 before the enormous change hit. If you click on the photos in the album, you will see a larger photo.

There is also a Chiriquí Chatter YouTube area that contains many videos of parades and other events that have occurred in Panama that I captured.

This may be my last non-scheduled post for a few days. I wish you all a Merry Christmas. Make sure to give those you love the hugs and kisses they deserve.

Finca Santa Marta

At the end of last month, my friend Ron invited me to go see his finca. I went and managed to get in an entire month’s worth of exercise in a single morning. Ron has a beautiful location that he is going to turn into a model farm.

I will post only a few of the photos in this post. All other photos will be in an album at the end of the post..

To get to the area where these photos were taken, you had to walk down a winding road, that was what you might call challenging.

This first photo is of a small water fall that was hidden behind some trees on a hillside.

What Has Happened To The Photos?

I know. I know. I have been back for awhile and have not posted any photos. Well it is not because I don’t want to or don’t have any to post. I am currently having some more technical challenges that I have to over come.

I thought that today I would move the photos from the Olympus camera onto the UBUBTU PC and choose some to post. That was the thing that started all of the new challenges.

I removed xD card from the camera and inserted it into the xD reader that is supposed to be read by the USB port. I plugged the USB card reader into a USB 2.0 slot on the UBUNTU PC. The flash reader immediately appeared as a new device and I thought this was going to be as simple as it was using my Canon photo transfer. However then Linux told me that it could not find any information on the new drive.

Sometimes it takes a while to get new devices recognized by Linux and I thought maybe my reader is an unsupported device. Being impatient, I took the USB reader and inserted it into the Apple Mini Mac. Likewise, the device was recognized by the Mac but it also told me that the device had no data.

Upgrades In And All Photos Moved

I believe that the flaws with the move to WordPress 2.2 have been corrected. I have all photos now in the correct directories and the appropriate posts pointing to the new directories. The photo move will mean that Google Images will send a lot of folks here and they will get a 404 message since the photos are now in a new location. I also installed the latest version for the Chat facility.

I now have a new challenge. I went to a special lunch yesterday and took photos and videos. On Windows XP I always used Movie Maker to edit the videos and prepare them for uploading to YouTube. Now I need to learn if there is a corresponding program for producing movies on Linux.
