If you're seeing this, you're on the new server. How's everything working?
on January 30, 2008
Hey everyone. At about midnight-1AM tonight this server will be going down and the new server will be activated. It may take up to 24 hours for DNS to propagate out to everyone, but chances are you'll see the new server within an hour. This server will be down and you won't be able to upload pictures for that time, but I'll link you to the IP of the new server when I take this one down.
The new server is faster, stronger, more powerful, and filled with awesome and win. PREPARE YOURSELF!

Here's a handy tip: to quickly scroll through pictures on a calendar, use your arrow keys! The escape key also closes the image window.
So, how's everyone liking the new features? Any comments are welcome!

How ya doin', ladies and germs. Working on burritos and a complete lack of sleep, I managed to bang out a ton of new features. Here's what we got:
Friends: You can now add friends! Go to your favorite peoples' cal's, and under their photo click 'add friend' to add. Now you have a handy list of your friends listed on your 'cal, so you don't have to troll through the user directory, and you can quickly see who's updated.
Editing Tools: Yes, everyone's been waiting for this one. You can now change the photo for a day, change the caption, and even remove it completely.
Profile Pics: Profile pics now resize correctly and don't zoom in like your regular 'cal pics. Please reupload your profile pics to get everything looking nice.
There were plenty of other interface tweaks as well, along with optimizations. There are many features on the pipeline as well:
- Image rotation
- UI tweaks
- Theme days
In the next week we'll be migrating to a new server so the site will work nice and fast. Because domains take a bit of time to change, if you see the site down, worry not! Everything will be fine! As always, let me know when stuff doesn't work so I can fix it for you. Thanks for uploading! Tell your friends! I like exclamation points!

Well la-dee-da, look at ShutterCal and it's new editing feature. You guys asked for it and we finally got around to getting it up and running. The actual look of it may be tweaked in the days to come, but this is a good start I'd say. Woohoo! Next step is friends features...

As of last night I pushed some updates to the site. We now have working profiles. Just click on your username in My Calendar and click on Edit Profile, you can upload a picture of yourself and tell us who you are and what your deal is. Also added is the ability to link to a single day's photo. If I wanted to show you my photo from January 14th, I would link to http://shuttercal.com/calendar/mach5/2008/1/14/.
Many optimizations were also made, photos should pop up and load faster, anonymous users can no longer try to comment on photos, etc. Friend lists are in our next update, along with editing tools (delete, replace, and even rotate your pictures!), so stay tuned. As always, post in the comments here what your would like to see, or if you encounter any bugs.
