Website Comments by CHOPZ

Nice new site, getting use to it - thanks. Just checking to see if any of the old pics we added will be transferred over, or we gotta restart every pictures ?

@Flashpro Ha, yes - I love beercaps, but some of the beers I took pics of in the past are long gone, and we can no longer get these pics. I hope you find a way to get them transferred one day, as I love going to a page that has at least one picture. And I have spent numerous time adding these to make the site clean and personable :P

@Chopz Oh no, I hadn't thought about pics being gone!

Well don't worry too much. I still have all of the pics both locally on some hard drives and in the cloud. The main issue I have is that trying to automatically move them over is a challenge because the new site uses about 3 different sizes of photos and that's done with a script that takes saves them in an Amazon S3 bucket, gives it a UUID for a filename, then gives that back to another script that saves it to the database.

Also, some files were too small and crappy and shouldn't be re-used, but I guess I can put some code in there to skip a file if it's too small. The other thing is that some of these files take about 2 seconds to process, because of the multiple resizing and saves, and cloud computing bills by microprocessing time so it will probably cost over a hundred dollars to go through all 20,000 pics ha!

@Flashpro Any way to get those old pics back. When I go on a website, and pics are missing - does not encourage me to continue on that site. We should have the old pics to where we do not have pics, at least for now, so it looks like a website that has been running for 20 years now.

@Chopz I can't figure out an easy way to have them converted into the new site format. So right now I'm taking all of the old full size photos and uploading them to a public folder. We'll have to manually upload them one at a time. There are over 23,000 beer photos...

@Flashpro Yes, this is my big beef. I have spent a huge amount of my time these last 20 years to take photos of the beer I drank, then uploaded them. Some I had to do some Photoshopping. Now, I am uploading new pics, some better, but take so much time. The internet with just words and not pics is not the same as a book.

@Chopz I started a new topic with a link to a page and a zip file of the first 1000 beer photos

@Chopz I've done less than 20% of the beer photos and I see 2888 photos listed on your page already!

I started working on brewery photos and did all ~800 photos belonging to the first 2000 breweries. 5117 to go!

It takes a bit of time to get them sorted out, uploaded, and processed, but the good thing is that it records the user that originally uploaded the photo.

All of the brewery photos are back on the site. I'll start working on the beer photos later this week.

All of the user photos have been copied over.

I've done the first 3000 beers. Lots of image errors.
