|With all the great pictures, I'm setting up a new "background" section. I've already set up the main page for it. Right now, the only size available is 1024 x 768, but I can take requests for any size anybody wants/needs. It will change every day at about midnite (somwhere between midnite and 2 AM). Tomorrow, I will add a thumbnail-size preview of the daily picture on the sidebar. I will go ahead and input a month's worth of pictures, so you can count on there being a new picture *every* day, come rain, snow, shine, or school (excepting, of course, issues with the server).
If you're interested in using the daily background as your background, I figured out a way to do it on windows. My background will now change every day, which makes the fight worth it even if nobody else uses the feature. If you're interested in details, let me know. Basically, I just used the "customize desktop" feature to show web content, if that means anything to you. I then put in http://www.petiejoe.com/JPics/background.php?size=1024 and made it fill the whole screen. I set it to automatically check for updates every day at 1:30AM (maybe I'll change that to a later time to compensate for possible daylight savings discrepancies), so we'll see if tomorrow I get a new background when I wake up.
Speaking of the current project, I gotta mention that it's really a pain in the butt to code PHP with error reporting off. I spent about 45 minutes trying to track down a bug that should've taken about 5, but because I didn't have a clue where I was looking for the problem, the single ')' that I was missing was a needle in the haystack. I'll talk with David tomorrow about solutions for that.
