I’m going to spend my summer vacation in the U.K. this year. My planned route looks like this:
Photos will follow in June 2013.
Not much going on here recently; last time I published a photo on this blog was in January. Here’s why:
Posts to this blog used to be generated in a semi-automated process. A custom PHP script that I wrote looked up new photos in my Flickr stream, added some meta information taken from the photo’s EXIF data (such as date, time, and place the picture was taken, the camera that was used etc.) and queued the blog post to be published on touristathome.tumblr.com. All my PHP script had to do was calling some of the Tumblr API functions. Pretty straightforward.
A few weeks ago, Tumblr changed its authentification process. I’m currently struggling with the new Tumblr API and the OAuth authentification process to make my PHP script work again.
