just wanted to confirm that I’ve made the move from my old site to this new one. I finally get the use of my www.richardbanks.com domain name, which I’m sure you’ll agree is VERY exciting for me. Possibly not so much for you.
For the RSS Junkies out there the new feed URL is: http://www.richardbanks.com/?feed=rss2
Welcome, one and all. Or probably just one…
You may notice that I’m messing around with the site design quite considerably. Sorry if the (possibly temporary) lack of readability offends anyone. I’m just getting bored with the old design, and playing around with using CSS to do all the layout. Please stay tuned.
I’ve spent a little time reorganizing my favorite photos. This is something I’ve been planning on doing for a while. I’ve tried to find a rought categorization for it all, based around architectural, object and people shots. And I’ve really tried to cut stuff out. But I’ve still ended up with over 150 shots. I think my bar for “favorite” may still be a little low…
OK, after a long period of extremely manual album making, I’m finally trying something more automated with this series of shots of the towpath outside our house on a frosty day. I’m using a tool called JAlbum which alows the creation of complex templates from which you can publish your pictures.
Thumbnail generation is automatic. Sub-page generation is automatic, and they have a whole set of tage you can use to set up the pages any way you want. It’s a bit like MovableType for images, but feels more flexible (to me) then MT for handling albums.
Quick update on the site’s home page, just to start getting the pictures a little bigger by default. Let me know if you think it’s bad/good.
Just added a google search to the bottom of the page. Now, finally, I can switch my IE default homepage from Google to this one.

The designs in here are kind of weird. A personal in-joke with people at work. I don’t expect anyone else to get it, and it’s geeky. What can i say? AND I don’t make any money from it. I’m kind of wondering what the point is.
Thoughts for grouping my favorite photos.
By those that glow.
And just dropped in the link.list below. My plan is just to blog stuff I see into that list (probably with no explanation).
Just added a favorites page. It’ll take a time to download all the thumbnails, so prepare to test your patience.
