August is always a quiet month, so many people on vacation.
Galleries added this month.
Stories added this month. And I'm working on voiced versions of the stories, which will be great for people with difficulty reading from screens. I'm using Mary for this; the vocalisation is being done by Prudence. She has trouble with some sentences, so for those, I'm using an alternative that isn't quite so good.
Movies added this month.
Working fine. I've just done the usual archiving of older stuff.
I built up several new servers, using the 8tb drives that are now available, loaded them with Fedora 22 and some terabytes of data each, and took them down to my colocation. There were just too many faulty machines, I was running out of spares.
I did another swap on the Herbiceps server; I don't think anyone noticed.
Here's the full list of DtV family web sites
I checked the site statistics that Sandra counts up each night.
At the end of August 2015, there were about 1,545,000 pictures (329 gigabytes), 535 gigabytes of video, 15700 text files (mostly stories) and a total of about 865 gigabytes. There's 550,000,000 pictures altogether in Newsthumbs, increasing at about 5 million per month.
