Recent twts from lyse
@ionores @firstname.lastname@example.org (#y6muzmq) Thank you, guys. I got attacked by three ticks when walking the down the grassy path to see the bussards or whatever raptors they are. Luckily I noticed them right away and kicked them off my long trouser legs.
We had a beautiful sunset again: https://lyse.isobeef.org/waldspaziergang-2021-06-16/
@darch(#nj3rtxa) You could use the basic format of ISO 8601, which is compact and doesn’t use special characters except in the sign of the numeric timezone offset (plus and hyphen characters). But you could convert it into UTC instead. The timestamp of this twt in ISO 8601 basic format would be
20210616T172000+0200, in the extend format it matches RFC 3339:
2021-06-16T17:20:00+02:00. Converted to UTC in basic format:
Listen up, slow worm friends, now is a really great time to spot them! Encountered two of them again. Also a fox at the chicken farm fence and two raccoons on a roof. Unfortunately I missed the really red sunset sky. I thought it’s not gonna get any prettier and went back into the woods and then saw an intense red sky through the trees. When I reached the woodland edge, it was all gone. https://lyse.isobeef.org/waldspaziergang-2021-06-15/
Hell yeah, luckily my brother spotted two slow worms earlier which I would have completely missed. https://lyse.isobeef.org/blindschleichen-2021-06-14/
@email@example.com (#oyt6lzq) After watching this video I remembered, that my first camcorder my grandpa gave me used some magnetic tapes and the other camcorder I bought myself later on had MiniDV cassettes. In school we also had those classical tape spools where we watched films like Die lustige Welt der Tiere in Biology several times. Just a few weeks ago I decided to sell all my VHS cassettes.
@firstname.lastname@example.org (#oyt6lzq) Haven’t watched it yet, but I used 3.5” floppies, CDs, DVDs, USB sticks and SD cards. I’m pretty sure that’s it! Oh no, I think I also had a compact flash (?) card for a small computer in the maths school lessons for the computer algebra system.
@off_grid_living (#g3th6hq) That’s an interesting observation, that the source image is even smaller! Your workflow seems overly complicated to me. Isn’t there a resize option in this image viewer? Maybe get yourself a proper image viewer. When I was on Windows decades ago I used Irfanview, not sure whether this still exists. As for dedicated image editing in a GUI, I can recommend GIMP. I reckon ImageMagick is availabe on Windows as well, you could easily automate resizing with it in a script if you have the courage to use the command line:
convert -resize 400x300 -strip -quality 50 ORIGINAL.JPG RESIZED.JPG is what I use.
Went on a hike to the tadpoles and the top of the local mountain this evening, where it has cooled down a little bit. The little guys are doing well and once again I saw a slow worm, holy cow! I never came across so many of them in my whole life than in the last one or two weeks. Awesome! The sunset was quite nice to watch. https://lyse.isobeef.org/waldspaziergang-2021-06-12/
Oh yeah, saw a slow worm again on todays hot walk in the woods! https://lyse.isobeef.org/blindschleiche-2021-06-11/
@prologic (#g3th6hq) No worries. I need to think about splitting the programs a bit more. Currently I’m trying to test your latest change regarding the configurable fetch interval. At the moment it looks like it’s not having any observable effect, but I’m probably doing something wrong. Back to testing.
@prologic (#g3th6hq) Okay, I had a look at the image code and noticed, that we don’t support JPEG. When requesting an image using
Accept: image/jpeg, a PNG is delivered instead. Locally converting the PNG to JPEG using
convert, results in a much smaller size. I used @off_grid_living’s solar panels https://twtxt.net/media/xpdN2Zg3WrZCLAhBo4Wu2U and got the following file sizes: 312.5 KiB PNG, 214.5 KiB WebP and 76.8 KiB JPEG. For photos, JPEG’s savings are quite significant. EXIF information are stripped when uploading an image, which is fine to me, @email@example.com would disagree on that. ;-) Maybe the hardcoded maximum image resize width of 720 px would be something to make configurable by twtd operators.

Fear not, rescue is close! https://lyse.isobeef.org/waldspaziergang-2021-06-09/ Today’s hike was muggy with thunder in the distance. I also checked out a new path and ended up on a field. Luckily I caught the tick crawling up my pants right away.
