You aren't expected to do anything you don't feel to. I maintain the gallery, on Fastmail's server(s), and don't charge anybody to 'publish' their photo on it, and I certainly expect nothing from nobody.

I thought most people on the Gallery have left the forums long ago.
Today I checked one by one, and was quite surpized to see how many of us are still active here in the 2020's.
Not a few people are active here for more than 20 years (more than Facebook...)

My EMD photo is 7.5 years old, when I weighed 95 pounds more and had a beard and was still in my early 60's. I should upload a new photo. I will have been a member of EMD for 20 years this upcoming May. I purchased a Fastmail account in April, 2004, and discovered EMD the following month.

My EMD photo is 23 or 24 years old, and I like how I look in it, so I'll keep it this way!
I have less hair now, and a bit more fat in lower places that are not shown in the photo. And glasses.

Time for a new one

Mine is over 7 years old, so I'm going to send a new one because I'm a different person. Well, not exactly, since I still get most pictures taken at restaurants!

I've added the new pictures. Every time I goto the album, I'm reminded of the way it used to be and the way it is now. It basically works the same as it (the Fastmail photo gallery) used to, but it is much different 'in the back end' now.

Thanks, Bruce. For those unfamiliar with the EMD photo page, the URL is:
http://emdpics.somdcomputerguy.com/

I (purposely) lost 95 pounds a couple of years ago, and I demolished my old house and built a new one with solar panels and roof rainwater capture (in the background of my photo). And of course I’m an old guy now. So that new photo was needed.

I’m so old, I was involved with some maintenance on the GTE Telenet early X.25 packet switched data network. The node in Austin, Texas was installed in the office of my employer about 45 years ago, and I helped maintain it for a few years. This was the first real public data network, long before the internet. ARPANET was an earlier system, but it was only used at certain US Government and selected unitiversity locations. Telenet was available to anyone who paid for an account and logged in over a modem. When I was involved with it, the user access speeds were very slow (110 to 1200 baud modems). Our node in Austin used a data concentrator to combine many of these low speed lines and connected to the main regional node in Dallas using a 56 kbps modem over a leased conditioned special telephone line.

I was about 11 yrs old at the time. I think I have some school pictures from then, maybe I should be updating my pic too..
