I recently shut down my Flickr Pro account, with the intent of moving my image galleries onto this website (stored in S3).
This has turned into a bit of a yak shave:
- The source for this site (compiled with Jekyll) is stored in git.
- My Flickr images are numerous, and large.
- git-annex with an S3 back-end seems like an obvious solution, but …
- it doesn’t compile on my machine.
So as soon as I get the above sorted out, I’ll move my image galleries here, which will in turn fix many of the broken images on this site.
(Incidentally, Flickr returns a 302 for missing images. And their tech support ticket system treats plain-text emails as empty. In case anyone was wondering, it’s things like this that convinced me to just host my own).
