Hello Family and Friends,

I just wanted to let you know that the Hildreth Server has been drastically improved by making the thumbnails load 100% faster. Now, it’s practically instant viewing pleasure.

Also, I thought I would take some time now and show you a few features that you’ll find when you get there. You may already know about them, but I’d like to tell you anyways.

Something that I’m most proud of because it makes going through pictures enjoyable. The main benefit is that you can see a smaller “preview” of what the actual full sized image looks like so you’ll know if you want to view it or not.

Directory Download:
Download Directory
So, what happens when you see a folder with 52 pictures and you want them all? If it weren’t for this nice little feature, you’d be stuck downloading them one-by-one. Now, just simply click on the link and download the whole thing!

New Images Indication:
New Images
This one is pretty neat just because it lets you know what’s new in my pictures. So, if you see the “New” image, you’ll know that it has been freshly uploaded within the last 5 days.

Search :
If you’ve seen a picture that you’d like, but you don’t know where to begin looking, then use this feature. Simply type in some keywords (like “Qeirstyn” or “Cabin”) and *poof* it will show you what you’re looking for.

File Information:
This is more-so just detailed stuff, but you can see how many times each file has been downloaded, when it was modified, and how large the file is.

Breadcrumb Trail:
This just makes navigation through the gallery easier. Click on the link and it will bring you to that directory. Click on the period “.” to get back to the very beginning.

I hope you like the Hildreth Server. I feel that it’s valuable to everybody and myself, so keep using it! Remember that the hours of operation are around 9AM to 9PM everyday (or when my laptop is on).


PS. All this was made possible by a script called AutoIndex.
