Installed all these three on pamela.santm.com and blog.santm.com which are running on wordpress 3.6 trunk. moved the dns details to cloudflare. While Pamela’s hobby site did very well Google page test result our blog result was not great. Looks like the culprit is inbuilt gallery of wordpress which is re-sizing images and seving them on fly causing high server time. the command that helped me a lot is “mogrify -strip *.jpg” which is part of imagemagick tool kit and removes exif data from images.

A journey of sharing photo only got me into having a website of my own. When digital camera came out with decent mega pixel was an early adapter of the same.

So long story small after the managing own gallyery app writen initally with csv and php , later mysql and php and lastly Gallery for almost 10 years.

Well after all these years of self hosting and WordPress I am kind of let go the Self-hosting. Moved pamela.santm.com to Tumblr and all the pictures from Gallery3 to Flickr. Still need to move www.santm.com somewhere and aarush.santm,com pictures to somewhere, most likely it will be Flickr again. hope to complete the all these before 2013 finishes.

The first-daywe got little suspicious with the transport rates being quoted by Kanchan View Hotel Manager. We reported that back to Calcutta the tour operator Mr. D. Ghosh. But once you are away from home and you have limited option to negotiate a bargain. The Hotel person by now have charged us 2500 for the first day covering only Tagore Smritivan , monastery and forest bungalow. For the second day we paid 2500 to cover 5/6 places but the distance was more.
