Flickr photos: a hitch

I had wanted to put photos up on Flickr before I made the PowerPoint slide presentation, but we've got a major problem: Flickr is free, but has a 100MB storage limit. Because it would have taken me far too long to reduce file sizes on the hundreds of files we have, I've been using un-reduced photos for the PowerPoint slide show. This shouldn't be a problem for what we're doing at the church, but with several gigabytes' worth of photos (and my thanks to those who mailed, emailed, or handed pictures to us), there's simply no way I can upload everything to Flickr without a massive campaign of file size reduction.

I'm sorry, but that can't happen in the time I have left before the memorial service, so please expect the Flickr slide show to occur a few days after Saturday.

Thanks and sorry.

We will surely all be gratified to see the photographs whenever they might be posted.

Sorry that I can't be present for the service, Kevin.

A solution might be Picasa with 1GB of storage - login with your Google credentials or alternatively uploading the powerpoint to google docs.

Kevin, I haven't got around to passing on to you my condolences until now, though I have been following your blog through all your trials (and initially trails!) since you left Korea.

We mentioned your Mum's passing on the SeoulPodcast, and of course all of our thoughts and prayers are with you.

This is a hectic and not inconsiderable time of change in your family's lives, I hope though, when you have time, things settle down and you are at peace we might find more of your writing all of which, and especially the writings here, I'm sure your mum would be proud of.

Take care of yourself and my warmest wishes at this time
