Microstock Monitor / Microstock Watcher and Yahoo 4
« on: May 22, 2007, 04:05 »
It has come to my attention that the new implementation of Yahoo! Widgets 4 for Mac (and possibly for Windows) causes serious errors for MicroStock Watcher v1.5.  The Mac Dashboard version still functions properly.

I regret that there probably will not be an additional version of MSW since I have been running it on a shoestring and will likely be shutting it down altogether soon.

If someone is interested in taking it over (i.e. purchasing the intellectual property and rights), please feel free to send me an email.

I have not set a target "shut down" date yet for the website but no further support will be provided after 1 June.

I thank everyone who purchased the widget and those who provided comments/suggestions.  The creation of the widget was a great learning experience and I hope it has been helpful to those of you who use it.

iStockPhoto.com / Manual vs. Auto Disambiguation
« on: January 09, 2007, 04:04 »
I went back and looked at my D/Ls for Nov and Dec at iStock and noticed that the sales have been running about 4 to 1 in favor of the files I didn't disambiguate. 

This would seem to argue in favor of giving up on the onerous task of DA-ing altogether.   ::) 

That said, I'm not sure how many total files I have DA'ed out of the total portfolio, so maybe it's just proportional.  I would also note that my Dec sales were 1/2 the previous year, when I had many fewer images on the site. 

All in all not a stellar sign for 2007.

What has your experience been in terms of DA'ed vs un-DA'ed sales?
