There’s a former railroad route to the coast that’s been converted into a greenbelt and walking path lined with trees. Some parts (not these) specifically focus on native California plants. Others open into grassy parks.

This looks helpful: someone compiled a list of where the 4’s network bands overlap with various US carriers, so if you manage somehow to get one across the pond, you have an idea of how likely it is to work on your carrier!

While messing around with IndieWeb, I’ve decided I want to build a consolidated PESOS gallery

While messing around with #IndieWeb, I’ve decided I want to build a consolidated #PESOS gallery of my photos at Instagram, Twitter, Mastodon, Pixelfed etc. I’ve got current archives for all (including from a dead Pixelfed instance).

Specs:
* Gallery, individual, and tag galleries
* Include captions and descriptions (I can add descriptions to the old photos)
* Links to wherever it’s posted (may be several sites)
* Light page code. I’d rather things load quickly than act fancy.

I’ve made a prototype in #WordPress so far, and it looks nice, and I already know how to automate new posts using IFTTT. But it feels heavy. And of course it’s one more instance to increase my attack surface & maintenance.

I’m going to give #Eleventy a shot next. I’ve worked with it before, and I can optimize the templates however I want. The image plugin can generate different sizes, thumbnails, etc. The main drawback: I haven’t researched ways to automatically import to 11ty yet.

Long-term I’d like to add #POSSE (selectively) to make it easier to cross-post. I had a set of 3 photos yesterday that I wanted to post to Flickr, Pixelfed, my blog, and my gemlog, and while it was mostly copying and pasting, it was also time-consuming.

Some of the stuff @stringerblog and @dansup have been talking about kind of overlap with this space.

Oh yeah, Flickr…the way I use it is different enough that I don’t want include my zillions of photos in this project. I might try a more full-featured gallery like Piwigo at some point. It’s less linear and more collection-based. But for photos I’ve cross-posted, I would like to link to it same as I would to Pixelfed or wherever, and it would be nice to include it in the outgoing posts once I get that up and running.

And I do like the idea of just federating the photos out directly!

OK, this got way more complicated and should’ve been a blog post.

So: building a personal #IndieWeb capable gallery of my sociallly-shared photos from various sources, keeping it light, pulling in new posts automatically (#PESOS) and eventually posting on my gallery and auto-posting it to Pixelfed/Twitter/Flickr/etc. (#POSSE) on a per-photo basis. Probably using #eleventy.

Anyone have any recommendations on tools that might be better than WP/11ty, or that would work well with this workflow?

Ooh, I could also generate a Gemini gallery! I remember @FiXato came up with some ideas on how to format one. I’d probably want to break it into categories or do it by tag or something

I wonder how much storage this will end up taking up. I probably won’t need to use S3 (finally started setting things up on DigitalOcean instead of AWS!) for this gallery unless I really want to CDN the images. By the time they’re scaled for whatever social network, it doesn’t take up any more space than by blog storage.

If I ever make my own Flickr mirror, though, that’s going to have to be a consideration!

About as many monarch butterflies in one photo as I’ve seen in the last few years!

From this afternoon’s walk along the greenbelt: About as many monarch butterflies in one photo than I’ve seen in the last few years!

There were a whole bunch of them clustered on a pine branch above the path. I wouldn’t have even seen them, but other people out walking had stopped to check them out.

I was just reading that this year’s overwintering monarch count is up to over 200,000 – a huge improvement over last year’s count of, I kid you not, 1,914. Though still not up to the millions that were regularly seen as recently as the 1990s.

Blog entry at https://hyperborea.org/journal/2022/01/monarchs/ including links to articles about the monarch count and ways to help the iconic species rebound.
