After about four and a quarter years of spending a sizeable chunk for my spare (and not so spare) time as a hobby, it is time for a break. I started working on the IVRPA website as a hobby, and over the past year and a half most of the fun of doing it eroded away. A recent chain of events has convinced me it is better to step down as (sole) webmaster now than to stay and become (even more) bitter. Just thought you should know...
Thanks for all the fish.
I'm so happy to stay here in this Web Site Photographers Community !!!
As I mentioned in my previous post, there's an extensive todo list for the ivrpa site ecosystem. Listed below is
remaining issues since Drupal 5 migration
- notifications: reformat notification messages (remove "greetings [user],")
- Googlemaps are not showing in gallery posts.
- Search results when searching profiles don't look right.
- Fix googlemap "overlay" (balloon) content on Find a Member page.
- Move google map in user/me/edit to seperate page (user/me/edit/location).
This december, it will have been 5 years since I created the first user for this site. Since then, there's always been a notion of a webteam. Though the webteam has from time to time been contributing to parts of the contents of the site, I don't think I am being unfair to any of the current and past webteam members if I say that I have been the sole contributor to the actual working of the site.
Here is a foretaste of the Paris 26 Gigapixels image. Feel free to spread the info :)
Bonne Année ! / Happy New year ! / Feliz Año Nuevo !
Here's my first humble experiment with Panosalado and Spin Control that includes sound.
This is an old panorama From 2007(I've gotten better, so be gentle).I decided to add sound to it from a recording I did in 2009 with my little MinoHD video cam. I'll try to shoot these lovely folks again next year at the annual Balls Falls Fall Festival in Ontario, Canada.

CuTy, the Flash 10 based VR viewer that displays the QTVR files on the IVRPA websites, is now officially available as an open source project:
I've been setting up an infrastructure for hosting vr-related open source projects on the IVRPA site for a while, and CuTy is the trial project for that. More to come...
