Thanks for this link, your pull quote is perfect. As a recovering gif masochists it really struck a chord. I never aimed for perfection just some strange self imposted notion around file size. I blame #DS106 for my may years of gif-addiction.
I don’t know if I’ll every break completely free, yesterday an image on my camera roll cried out for giffing. The modern way, an iOS shortcut resulted in a 2.2MB monster. After a fair bit of command line, with Eddie Kohler’s gifsicle, I eventually opened an older version of Mac os on parallels that could run FireWorks to to squash it to 448KB.
Although making gifs is redundant & silly, it has given me so much fun over the years and I like to feel taught me a lot.
Interesting, the rather challanging hypothes.is comments were interesting too.
& I did a little more digging. I could not see any kind info in the Rest API representation for a post. Then I saw:
Posting capability via custom REST API endpoint has been removed due improved Micropub support
At the moment I’d be more than happy to post as a draft and set the kind myself. I suspect that I’d reply using the WordPress editor, like now, rather than Drummer anyway.
Drummer has a lot of interesting features, I am kicking the tyres a little. When I started this blog I used pivot, a flat file php blogging system. It also had this sort of feature, although they didn’t call it a glossary. I would think someone could write a WordPress plugin to do the same sort of thing.
A previous outline & blog system from Dave Winer, Fargo, had a post to WordPress feature. I am wondering if this might be possible for Drummer too.
This is a useful guide. I remember Oliver Quinlan, a guest on Radio EDUtalk talking about the eloquence of the command line compared to pointing and grunting.
I enjoy using the command line, often with Raspberry PIs, but it is easy to miss some of the basics which this guide covers well.
Since the start of covid I get a delivery from the supermarket once a week and make a quick trip to a smaller one in the evening. Newspaper from the wee coop early morning.
What I love about his post is the quote/ featured image. I liked it on flickr earlier.
I’ve been messing around with code and scripting on and off since I started using computers. Never enough to get the basic stuff in my head long term. I suspect my aged brain as well as the lack of daily practise. I can still have “fun“.
I for one appreciate your linking, mention, breadcrumbs that make up your online trails.
Dave Cormier Should be delighted to get so many mentions🤣
I am glad you posted this. I like bookmarklets. I run one a bit like this via AppleScript on my mac. This has an advantage of letting me add a keyboard to send straight to the clipboard.
I am going to add the indieweb mark up to that using Chris’s script for reference. Like you I couldn’t get it working at first I had to mess around with he single and double quotes. This works for me:

I do not think you need to worry about imposter syndrome. I went along to OER 16 where I was allowed to do some podcasting I was made very welcome. The whole conference was really exciting. Although the majority of folk there were in higher ed I didn’t feel uncomfortable being a primary teacher. A repeated thread was that open meant many different things can could be taken many different ways. I think presenting about your blog and how it work for you would make a great session. I certainly have alway thought of it as an essential open educational resource.
