On Sunday I got my first dose of the Astra-Zeneca vaccine. I’ve been feeling ill since Monday. I used my limited energies to send invoices and emails and I tried to develop a small feature for image uploads in blank.page.

I write tried because I was not successful in my endeavor. I wanted to pass the image upload through TinyPNG’s api so that my screenshots would be reduced in size, but I couldn’t make it work.

Still, I never tested the level of compression accomplished with this service. Let us grab one of the screenshots that I posted yesterday…

Hmmm… it will be worth compressing, but when I have found a better way…
