One of my mottos is, "I can't be good at everything." Checkbook balancing, paperwork filing, and photo management are three areas that could stand some improvement. I don't plan to apply myself to the checkbook-balancing and paperwork-filing tasks any time soon, but my crazy photo system really bugs me.

I'm not writing about photo management just because I've been trying to figure out a way to use a picture of my Boston Terrier, Olive (even though she is the cutest). Actually, I ran across Kristin Shoemaker's "Flipping the Linux switch: Quick and easy photo management with F-Spot."

My favorite part of her tutorial is where she says, "You'll notice a few things happening, all at once. Don't freak out." It's like Kristin wrote this tutorial just for me.
