Updating the software that runs the pictures on GenWeb of Monroe County went fairly well. First thing I needed to do was back-up that section to my computer. It turns out it was about 8gb and it took about 12 twelve hours to download. At least it was running in the background of my computer. I also made a separate copy of the pictures folder on the website. Then this morning I finally dared to click the button to tell the software to update. I was happily surprised when it updated with no problems.
After the update I added a few more pictures. So now there are 3136 pictures to view. The updated software gave me more information on the pictures folder. It says that since November 2012 there have been 24 million picture views . For last week there are an average 24,000 views a day. I never expected that much activity.
