Aerial views of the St John River

can be found here. My parents farm is picture 20.

Note: Bill is right. The image # is 2, which is between #19 and #21. Silly me thinking that 20 fell between 19 and 21.

Here it is

...hm. Well, it looks like it's AWFULLY close to the house... but it's not underwater yet, so, yay, right?!

Hi dear.
In this browser it looks like picture 2, which, oddly enough, is spliced between picture 19 and picture 20. Picture 20 is the end of the Westmoreland Street bridge.

From the ordering of the photos it seems that the photo display engine has a funky sort routine for the photos that doesn't understand ordinal numbers. I've seen this kind or weirdness before.

Mira's Papa,

Joe's photo album software has the same problem. It obviously sorts the files in the folder by looking at the 1st character in the file name before moving on the the second character.
This drives me insane. The only way to have the files appear in the right order is to be creative in the naming of each picture file.

Christine,

I bet it makes Joe crazy too. Nothing like a badly written algorithm that fails on the most routine of tasks. Sheesh. I wonder what school that schlock graduated from?

As if ordered number sequences weren't as common as dirt. Oy!

How on earth does one return to "normal" after such an ordeal? I pray that it ends quickly and I feel for your parents, what a mess.

What a mess! I'm with Kansas A. I do hope that recedes rather quickly. Stay safe!

Yikes! That water's not just close to, it looks like it's in the house, there.

What's more aggravating than the fact that it won't sort intelligently? That'd be when you realize this, start numbering with a leading 0, and then have to go back & tack on another 0 because you've taken so many pictures. ;)

Renaming files? With leading zeros. That's what scripts are for. Written many a file renaming script over the years.

Wrote one for Jackie last night that she's likely going to blog about.

I'm with you. ;)

What a horrible mess! I hope your parents didn't fair too badly...I am thinking about you.
