Gallery migration done, party done, all is right with the world

I finished migrating my image gallery this afternoon. It wasn’t easy – it kept getting hung up at the same pictures. Upgrading from 1.4.4 to 1.5.1 and deleting the aborted albums out of the G2 album area helped, but some pictures just refused to migrate for some reason, including one whole album. In each case I had to copy the files to /tmp, delete the problematic ones, migrate the album, and import the picture from /tmp. I guess there were about 25 pictures I had to do that way. Not bad out of 2500+, I guess, but it was a pain. But the gallery looks a lot better now.

This afternoon/evening was our annual Christmas Carolling Party. I’m sure Vicki will blog about it in huge detail, but it was a rousing success. One of the things I like best about the party is that we invite people from church, people from work, and people from the neighbourhood, and I keep looking around to make sure that they’re not breaking up into homogeneous groups. Especially this year when we’re in a new neighbourhood. And it worked well. I think everybody got along with each other.

I love this house, and I love this neighbourhood.
