MiDFur and photo sharing

Well, it looks like I'll be going to MiDFur in January 2012 after all. I have space in a room lined up, but I still have to work out how to get there. As a last resort I could always fly down but then it limits what I can take with me. Also, it looks like I will need somewhere to sleep on the night of the 9th as I might be driving back up with ristin.

In other news, I want to keep sharing photos from my European adventures, but I'm not sure how best to tackle it. It should give me at least basic stats (like views), let me sort it into albums or sets or whatever and (more or less) give me unlimited storage. Ideally there should be a plugin for iPhoto so I could export to it directly from that. Both Picasa and Flickr are good, but both impose limits on the number of photos I can have. Any ideas?

Extra large Meekos available

t_h_squirrel has sent a Meeko and a husky (everyone should know what the classic Meeko looks like, but here is a shot of the husky) to a Chinese manufacturer (Joy Fay, from whom I bought a Remy knock-off I'm very happy with) who will copy the patterns and make over-sized versions of them. This costs money of course, but the more people who sign up for a given size, the cheaper it will be for all concerned. Myself and a friend are getting Meekos that will measure 91cm from rump to nose that will look straight ahead. Others are commissioning one that will be 152cm from nose to rump. Some are getting a husky that will be 183cm from nose to rump. How much they cost will depend on how many people commission a particular design and you will have to talk to Trigger, who is coordinating this, but you then pay Joy Fay directly rather than Trigger. As for how good these will be, I don't know. I am taking a chance on it myself. I'm just putting this out so other people can get in on this too if they want.

Further inquiries should be directed to Trigger:
