    Well yesterday, while working to clean up disk space on nutcrackler123.com, i mistakenly deleted the 5 gigabytes of animated gifs.


    So as of today, you will not see the animated gifs in the gallery.


    This is the bad news


    The good news is this will require me to finish the program that will recreate the gallery. This program will fix the missing gifs on nutcracker123.com AND it will allow all of you with a ;local install to finally get your own gallery.


    It will probably take through this weekend to get code finished and a couple of days to recreate the images


    sorry
    sean

    The only files removed were the animated gifs. In order to recreate them i need to write the program to go and call all 10,000 effects and make new gifs. This has been on my todo list for about 4 months. So, yes, probably a good thing.

    Gallery is back on nutcracker123.com


    I will release the command that created the nearly 8000 images this week. People with local installs will finally get their own gallery.
    Doing some more testing.


    Timing was not so bad, less than 18 hours to build them.


    thanks
    sean
