It looks my photo software, Gallery, took a Humpty Dumpty fall and won’t go back together again. Unless the technical support volunteers at Gallery come back with some amazing help, I think it’s dead.
This is one of the most frustrating problems I have ever walked away from. It bothers me to leave a problem that I have engaged with unsolved. While I am sure that I could eventually solve this problem, I am also sure the time spent solving it would neither be enjoyable nor worth the final result.
So it’s back to Flickr.com and all the associated problems I was happy to have left for the last six months. In the end, I’m sure I’ll spend less time dealing with Flickr problems than I’ve already spent on Gallery software!
