WTF? When i decided to just go to bed without setting an alarm to see when i'd wake up on my own i wasn't expecting 9:15 to be the result! Actually it wasn't entirely at home, my cat was starting to play with stuff in a noisy manner because she was out of food, but she hadn't even gotten around to pawing at my face yet =P I got up and gave her food but now i'm wide awake and won't be able to get back to sleep without putting in more effort than i'd really like.

Well, i guess it's too late to get into work now anyways though, guess i'll have to take the vacation day afte all. Yay! Got lots of stuff i should be doing :)

Speaking of which, anyone have any good suggestions for websites that are good for hosting large numbers of pictures that are free or reasonably priced and have a decent UI?

Umm... Flickr?

The Pro features are very nice, and pretty cheap.

So, what was wrong with picasa? Is it not actually free?

And gee... I think if you left as soon as this was posted, you still would have beat us in. :-P

if i'd tossed on work clothes and run out the door without showering first i _might_ have made it before the morning meeting, but probably not :)

There's nothing wrong with picasa, i'm actually looking at it right now and trying to decide if i want to resize all my images so as not to use up half of the free gig just for this one set of photos :) It's just good to get multiple opinions and/or options.

(Well that and to not annoy people who might not want to download over a meg for each picture.)

LJ hosts pictures too, if you just want to store them. The scrapbook interface blows, imho, but ymmv.

As avani points out, there's always Scrapbook.

One of my favorite features of the Picasa client is the ability to batch-resize on export. So if you select a hundred pictures to export, you can tell it to make them all X size, which is handy for browser-friendly images.

Ohhh, thank you for the batch conversion tip! :)
