Porta v0.96

Porta allows you to create attractive image galleries from your digital photos in just a few easy steps. It offers several template designs that can be customized in thumbnail size, image quality, and some other aspects. You can also choose to add a watermark to each image, sharpen the scaled images, and display EXIF data for each photo.

Porta also includes SimpleViewer, a popular Flash-driven gallery creator that can be used instead of the included HTML galleries. The program is easy to use and allows you to create modern image galleries with minimal configuration.

    What about instances where a user has a Macbook Pro, connected to an Apple LED Cinema Display where the Macbook is constantly plugged into power?
    I’d say that my 98% of my Macbook’s usage comes when it is in its Twelve South dock, plugged in to the charger via the Apple display.
    How would I go about becoming the ideal Apple user; ”a commuter who uses her notebook on the train, then plugs it in at the office to charge.”

      Just did some research on this topic…
      Found that just because the Magsafe is plugged into the Mac, doesn’t mean it’s charging the battery.

      About 1 hour after the Magsafe LED turns green, the battery stops charging. After that the Mac is powered just from the Magsafe. The battery is isolated from the system. If you leave the Mac like this, after a few days or weeks the charger will add a little top up charge to the battery.

      So leaving the Macbook plugged into the Magsafe is no different than simply unplugging it. The charger is very smart and will look after your battery as well as possible.

      Read the Apple article carefully. It does not say do this to keep the battery healthy. It says “The battery needs to be recalibrated to … keep the onscreen … display accurate and to keep the battery operating at maximum efficiency”

      Calibration is more about accurately estimating how much charge the battery can hold. It’s like having a car with an inaccurate gas gauge, and a tank whose size varies with time. The only way to really know how much gas the tank can hold is to empty it completely, and then fill it up noting how many gallons it takes.

        Had my battery replaced last Thursday(4-7-11). After 29 cycles in 2 years the 2nd battery had expanded again.Apple bar dudes said not to leave it plugged in all the times.I mentioned that i thought they were smart enough to stop/trickle charge, but home boy still said,”no, you shouldn’t leave them plugged in all the time”. Tried to hit me up for 99 bills, I said,”No! Way!.Free battery followed shortly.

    Usually it needs to be up at least a week, but I’ve found items cached by Google as new as 1 day.

    If anyone would ever like to view content that has been deleted AND is at least 6 months old, the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine is awesome for that… I use it all the time when clients call and complain about their old website being bad – but it’s been taken down.
