Three days of debugging the OAuth versus Flickr procedure in my code. I even calculated all the strings by hand (in a spreadsheet) to get to the problem. In the end it was a single missing "=" in if condition. Universe, you owe me three days of my life!

I wanted to digitize a moleskine to pdf using a sony digital camera. To photograph the pages, I need to hold the camera in a portrait orientation. This script expects to be run in a directory you’ve copied your pictures to, then generates an optimized pdf file:

mkdir /tmp/t
for x in *
convert -rotate 90 $x /tmp/t/$x
img2pdf /tmp/t/*JPG -o /tmp/t/$1.pdf
pdf2ps /tmp/t/$1.pdf /tmp/t/$
ps2pdf -dPDFSETTINGS=/ebook /tmp/t/$ ~/$1.pdf
rm -rf /tmp/t
