Hi folks,

Today, I added another page to my website:

Roman Republic, Part 39

Hi folks,

I finally finished posting all of my Roman Republic coins.

I also finished posting all of my major sections. Of course, I still have minor sections to post yet (Byzantine, etc.).

But, before I get into my minor sections, I want to "fix" my early photos. I am not satisfied with the quality of many of my earlier photos (Magna Graecia, etc.). Some of them are blurry, some were shot with improper lighting, etc. I must go back and re-shoot them with proper lighting and obtain maximum sharpness. Also, some photos need to be re-cropped. This process is probably going to take a few months, possibly longer. That should take me to late Summer, or maybe even Fall or Winter.

I began constructing my website in November 2015. So, it is probably going to take me over 2 years to complete it. And my website is only Phase III of my project. Phase I was treating my bronze disease coins, which took 1 1/2 years. And Phase II was re-writing my tags, which took 1 1/2 years. So, my entire project (all 3 phases) is probably going to take me 5 years or more.

Obviously, this entire project (all 3 phases) was a monumental undertaking. By the time I am all finished, it will have consumed 5 years (or more) of my life. When I began this project, I was 45 years old. I will be 50 years old in November. I hope this was all worth it.

Hi folks,

Today, I began the process of swapping out my sub-par photos.

I started with my Greek Italy coins. I swapped out about 25 photos (Apulia-Bruttium).

Hi Joe,

Thanks for the comment.

Yes, I enjoyed doing the project. It was an interesting learning experience too, in numerous ways. I learned about my coins, I learned HTML code, I learned how to use a flash drive, I learned how to upload files and photos, I learned how to treat bronze disease coins, etc.

Additionally, I felt like I was buying my coins all over again. I had forgotten about many of them. I purchased them so long ago that I lost track of them. Now, I have a digital and online record of them.

Hi folks,

Today, I swapped out about 10 sub-par Greek Italy photos.

My new photos are showing in Mozilla, but they are not showing in Google Chrome. I repeatedly click on "reload page", but my new photos are still not showing in Google Chrome. I don't know why. Maybe because I am not uploading any new pages (photos only)?

If you want to see my new (swapped out) photos, you will probably have to use Mozilla until Google Chrome resets/reloads its pages. You may need to click on "reload page", but it is working in Mozilla.

Hi Nick,

Thanks for the comment. :)

I wound up swapping out about 80-90% of my Campania, Neapolis photos. My photography skills weren't so good when I first shot photos of those coins about 1 1/2 to 2 years ago.

I still have one more Neapolis page to do.
