@jimgroom Posting from my blog to social.ds106.us is working fine. Now replying with the indieblocks plugin & brid.gy.
I seem to have managed to move to social.ds106.us without damage?
Interesting dilemma, Thinking about moving to #ds106 https://social.ds106.us. It seems moving mastodon servers is not that difficult. I think you lose old posts but since I’ve POSSED some from my blog it is not a problem. Alternatively the ActivityPub WordPress plugin turns your blog into a member of the fediverse. The is attractive, but I am not sure how much understanding & work is needed. Or I could stay on mastodon.social
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.
Thanks for the love Joe,
Just when I think I’ll get rid of the sidebar. They do seem to have gone out of fashion. I guess I’ll keep mine till they come back in😉
Ds106, was/is a wonderful course on ‘digital storytelling’ that has run in several universities but allows anyone to join in. A source of a lot of fun and a lot of learning about owning your own space.
The video is in the style of the now disappeared online service pummelvision. After it went I wrote a script to replicate it.

Someone would notice & care;-) I log on to the club once every year or so. Just fixed a couple of http references to https. I still wonder if the tilde environment would make a good place to run a ds106 course.
It is also a good tinkering place.

What indeed. I like to see silly things I’ve made used.
