  1. Gum printing, experimentation and premature demises

    by , 11-16-2010 at 10:59 AM
    My latest foray in alternative processes has been delving into the world of gum bichromate. I've gone down this particular garden path for a reason - no, not personal insanity, but rather I have a commission that requires it. Gum is pretty sensible all things considered, not any harder on paper than say platinum. However, there are so many other variables you have to work in - how much pigment to mix for a given color, how much exposure to give, what strength of dichromate to use, what paper to ...
  2. Turning over advertising to the pros..

    by , 10-20-2010 at 05:36 AM (Ramblings from the APUG admin..)
    I love that so many small businesses can reach a large target audience on APUG. We've taken on quite a few advertisers over the years and I've always tried to manage it myself. It's reached a point where managing this has become a slight disaster to say the least. Who has paid, who hasn't and left, who is still current but simply forgot to have money in their paypal acct, which ads to disable, enable or re-enable.. contacting advertisers and fielding problems with advertisers and their accounts. ...
  3. I got to see my new darkroom!!!

    Have you ever had that feeling that something was just right? When we decided to look at the home we are buying we had no intention of moving. We love our old house even though it is kinda small. I just drove by this new house and had to go look inside. It immediately felt like my home. I loved everything about it (except maybe the orange carpet)!It was built in 1921 and was so much like the home I always knew I wanted to live in. I saw the locked room in the basement and was told that it ...
  4. Chris's Photographic Rule No. 10

    by , 10-05-2010 at 12:37 PM
    Well, so far I have posted four of my photographic rules. I started with No. 6 in the spirit of George Lucas (I know, not number IV but not at the beginning, anyway).

    Here's a recap.

    Photographic Rule No. 6
    I don't do weddings.

    Photographic Rule No. 7
    If the film hasn't been rewound, it might get fogged if you open the camera back.

    Photographic Rule No. 8
    Always remember to extinguish your subject.

  5. More updates, fixes and features have gone in..

    by , 09-25-2010 at 08:33 PM (Ramblings from the APUG admin..)
    I've taken us from vBulletin 4.0.5 to 4.0.7 (containing 300+ core system bug fixes), as well as an update to the APUG Gallery from RC1 to RC2. Bit of a scramble and a 3hr outage but all is going well. The hard work on the initial vBulletin 4.0 APUG build has paid off, allowing me to have quite pain free system updates. Keeping our system up to date has never been easier, the last system was a nightmare to update. We also have some features ported back to the new system such as Gallery thumbnails ...
