Colophon

photos taken on a sony Mavica MVC-FD81 (purchased via e-bay, I think @@...); copied to jammer, my sony viao laptop (using a USB floppy), for editing.

index created with a shell-one liner to create thumbnails:

for d in mavica*; do (cd $d; mkdir tmb; for i in *.jpg; do convert -size 128x96 $i tmb/$i; echo $d $i; done ) ; done

and another one to create the index:

(for d in mavica*; do (cd $d; for p in *.jpg; do echo "<p><a href='$d/$p'><img alt='$d/$p' src='$d/tmb/$p'/><br class=''/>$d/$p</p>"; done ); done )>>index.html

then a nasty perl script@@ to format the dates nicely

@@ camera was supposed to be set to UTC, but at 2100 UTC, it said 0900 UTC.

then edited with emacs and checked with xmlwf
