Mundane or propane:

Entry: image writing
Description: This is a modern conundrum for the data-driven family historian. How much information to share and how to protect it from further (unauthorised) sharing. A working fix of 2016 is a move to image-write, to render digital data into analogue. Not keen on your tree being shared widely? Draw one by hand with key information missing. Unfond of folk copying your Ancestry tree? Split it up into hundreds of nuclear trees (easily done with a rudimentary knowledge of gedcom files and MS Excel). Less than tickled by your Google Map data being filched from the source page? Arrange for PHP to write data to infowindows as image files. So simple, so satisfying.

Blew me away. Way to go.

I'd have had more exciting afternoons at the corn clinic. Get this snoozeworthy material off the site.
