Hacking on Photohub...
I'm not entirely sure if it was a waking dream, a real genuine earthquake (I checked quake.usgs.org and didn't see anything) or somebody clomping around and causing the floor to shake, but thought I felt an earthquake the other day while sitting in bed trying to sleep. And I realized that I wasn't dogfooding Photohub nor using it to manage my photos. Which means that I'm not making backup disks of my photos, which is bad given that I've always been a little suspicious about the chances of a desktop hard drive surviving a good earthquake.

Sometimes it's ok to have a sucktastic API
But, the way I see it, a base API doesn't need to be easy to deal with. It doesn't need to be simple. It just needs to be simple enough to gather a small bunch of users who can shake out a good wrapper from various repeated pieces of code and flexible enough that they can actually write something....
