|With just 1646 rows of PHP you can browse 19874 photos taked in 18 years.
All the site is developed using Free Open Source Tools like PHP, SQLite, ADODB, Sigma Template and runned on a IBM xSeries Server (thanks IBM for your Linux Effort) running GNU/Gentoo Linux with Apache2.
Actually photos are downloaded from my Digital Camera directly on the server in a tree structure.
This applications creates automagically thumbnails at 150px and preview images at 800px and 1280px with a great quality using Imagemagick, MEncoder and the great looseless rotation and RAW converter DCRaw. Each image is whitebalanced, normalized sometimes despekled and then published.
Photos area is a mass storage (of 0.00G) repository for me and my friends about travels or nice moments.
Feel free to browse them.

I liked the idea and I know where I am ... but I can't jaunto because I still don't know the exact place where I'm directed ... but I will find it ...
