Finally found another site that allows the sharing of deep zoom images. Basically they are just super high resolution images that exceed the maximum properties allowed by regular JPEG files, allowing gigapixel sized images that load detail based only upon the area you are viewing, rather than attempting to load the entire image into memory at one time.
This image is only a bit over 200 megapixels, and about 60 megabytes in size. I just used my phone, set at 2x, and took scanning shots of the front yard and assembled them with Microsoft ICE. With a better camera and better/longer lens, much higher quality/detail images should be easy to create. Just another nerdy photo thing to test, in case I ever need it for something…
Hmm… I think I’ve actually got two old HD Zoom gigapixel images of Lancaster from Mt Pleasant from several years ago (taken with the dSLR) that I should be able to convert and upload.
I did stop in at my estate attorney’s office. He wasn’t there, but after explaining the situation to one of his secretaries and indicating that I didn’t really intend to leave their lobby until they could give me some more information… heh… she finally ended up calling him, apologized for interrupting, and then after a short exchange she got him to schedule another appointment with me at the beginning of next month. 😒 Not exactly the quick resolution I was hoping for, but at least it’s something.
It sounds like all he has left to do is to draw up and submit some sort of “final accounting” type paperwork to the county court, showing that everything has been well documented and that there’s been no shenanigans. 🤔 He’s had all that info for weeks now, and he knew that it would eventually reach this point, so I’m not sure why there’s been such a delay… but at least now it sounds like this next meeting might be the last meeting, and hopefully soon after that I’ll be able to send Dad his check, deposit mine, and then finally, finally be done with all this. 😑
It’s not that it has occupied all my time as of late, or required more physical or mental energy than I was able to expend… it’s just the tedious nature of it. The way it’s always hanging in my thoughts as one of the many “things” that I’m compelled to think about and worry about until they are complete. 🤓 So for the next week and a half I’ll be holding my breath and hoping that there’s no other stupid little things that will trip up the process.
