zwol: ((mad) science)

Upon discovering that Photo Editor A has inexplicably discarded the time stamps on ninety-four photos, causing Photo Editor B to get peeved and file them all under "No Event" instead of a sensible date, there are three types of people in the world:

  1. Those who ignore the problem.
  2. Those who manually re-enter the timestamps on all 94 photos using an interface not intended for this task.
  3. Those who figure out how to write a shell script that would automatically copy the time stamps over from the archived raw files.

Today I am type two. On some other day I might be type three, but probably never type one.

(Technology makes more work for us: if I had been shooting with my old film camera, there wouldn't be any timestamps to correct.)
