updated photo website!

i spent some time in the last week to move the picture library from skoshe.com to doylez.com. what a task. the skoshe.com is up for renewal in the next few months so i thought it would be a good time to get rid of that domain and stick with doylez.com and an unnamed private domain for the home network. you can visit the new photo website here. i stuck with the kubrick theme since both pivot and coppermine both have that prebuilt, although I’m going to start fiddling with it a little more here and there.

stay tuned for more postings!
