Found this pure-PHP Camo clone that I’ll use for my Microsub reader/Monocle fork, instead of a self-hosted image proxy. Pros: I’m almost able to run the entire thing on a dead-cheap shared hosting environment. Cons: I still need a caching proxy that’s able to resize and crop avatars, for now. (Ideally, though, the Microsub server would do all that. [No? Well, maybe not.])

    I can also not crop avatars, and just replace border-radius: 50%; with a smaller, absolute number, as I’d have no way of knowing each image’s aspect ratio. (Con: potentially huge image sizes, depending on the source. Also, not as pretty. [But don’t wanna resort to JS.])

    Thought I was smart, appending ?with-replies=1 to my notes section’s URL, but my Microsub aggregator—Aperture—seems to be ignoring it. No replies for me then (using this h-feed). Also, the image proxy thingy doesn’t work for this one image over at WP.com … Will have to investigate.
