Every picture tells a story

As you may have noticed we have some trouble with the images on the codebetter site. Despite all good care the majority got lost when upgrading to a new server. Too bad. Imho a picture tells more than a thousand words. At this moment my blog looks a little like a scrapbook where the pictures have been torn out. Right now I’m digging through all my private backups to dig up what I can find. And will restore whatever I can. But no more lamenting. This post is to celebrate the joy of pictures.

    WTF ! They have disappeared.. In this version of CS the url’s to images are different than the previous. Even different in a new session.. Back to the drawing board ?

    Well, that’s what you get for not using a VCS.
