Pics all around.

Hey all. You might be wondering why you're seeing posts of pictures from the Personnel page here in the last few days. The reason for that I will tell you, but first a tiny bit of background...

Blogspot, the service that I use for this easy-as-pie-to-manage website, automatically saves every picture I load in an album on a sort of Cloud-like service. It used to be called Picasa Web Albums, but now I think it's just Google Web Albums or something like that. Anyhoo, the other day I went into the album to clear out some old pictures and somehow managed to delete THE ENTIRE FREAKING ALBUM.

I was SO freaking upset because I cannot for the life of me figure out how I managed to delete the entire album when I was only attempting to delete one picture. And I was annoyed, because it meant having to replace every single informational graphic (like the rank insignia pics and the animated starships in the ASDB) and character picture on the site. Every. Single. One. had to be replaced. And I'm still not finished. 

Okay, technically I could have had it done in a single day, but it's tedious work and annoying as hell to have to re-do something I did years ago. So I've been doing it in stages. I believe I have one more character list to do (Civilians) and then the book cover images in the few stories that have them, and then I should be done. Again.
