Just want to address a couple points. Those of you who have sent me emails or pictures, your messages are not being ignored. I'm just focused on transitioning the site to the other server right now and will deal with those when I can. As far as the transition goes, I hope to have the changes complete within the next 2-3 weeks (knock on wood), which means potentially the official switch could take place as soon as the end of February. When this happens, however, not all the pictures may be ready to go, so there may be a period of catch-up.
The whole reason for this server switch is so I can administer the data for this website jointly with the World Waterfall Database. Both websites will be hosted on the same server and the eventual idea is to seamlessly merge the two entirely. I will be keeping this URL indefinitely, but will use it primarily as a more focused outlet of information while the actual waterfall data and pages will be the domain of the World Waterfall Database. For the immediate future, the two sites will still visually look independent.
I do still have a huge backlog of additions to get up from this past summer, and when the server switch goes down, that data will become available (but again the pictures may not be ready right away), so don't fret the shrinking "Recently Updated" box on the home page.
Some of you have also asked me whether I plan to conduct any Photography Workshops this year. The answer is YES, but I haven't laid out the groundwork for the classes yet. There will be at least four of them, the cost will be the same as last year ($150 / person) and I hope to have the schedule and locations posted by the end of February at the latest (at this point, all I can say is there will be at least one in Oregon, but where I haven't yet decided). The earliest class will be in May, so there is still plenty of time to plan.
