So, now I can't even delete my account without handing them a cellphone number.

Did I succeed with what I tried to achieve in the first place? Hell no! πŸ˜†

This all reminds me why I shouldn't tread these waters in the first place. Once you're, you won't get out.

It will get your comments as json and create a worthy backup.

But, to get the high res files you need to log in using that. I used: instaloader --login=username --tagged --comments --dirname-pattern={profile} --filename-pattern={date_utc:%Y%m%d}-{shortcode} username

However, Instagram pretty soon realized something fishy was going on, so they decided to pull the plug and required to give me some a string of numbers that would tie my account to the meatspace me.

Of all big tech social media I hate Instagram the most. I just spent 3 hours attempting to download all my photos with comments and delete all photos from my timeline.

You can't delete your photos from their web app. The last thing I want is to install the Android app. So, first I had to install Android x86 via VirtualBox. I then had to go to apkmirror to get Instagram for x86.

The best way to download seems to be instaloader.github.io/

Phaedra gets a nice mention in the Tales from the Dork Web: thedorkweb.substack.com/p/a-we Cheers @stevelord

Sadly not 55KB any more, but getting more and more useful.

It is strange how hard @pla's death hit me today. Neither did I interact with that many posts he published on the fediverse, nor did I read all of his blog posts regularly. Most of it just scrolled by. Nevertheless, I am sad that his extremely positive attitude will not be around here anymore. It is quite easy to enjoy #cycling, but only to share the negative aspects of it on the internet. @pla did not do that.

I guess that means we all have to talk more about great cycling experiences.

Waking up to see the sad news that @pla passed away and requests to share #cycling pictures in his memory.

Here's one from August on The Great Glen Way.

I’ll miss @pla #cycling photos and sandwich updates. This is my most recent cycling photo (learning how cycling pilots help vision impaired people ride safely) and thoughts to his family and friends.

If you are a #cyclist, please share your ride photos. It would be nice to honor @pla's life of cycling after such sad news.

Please boost this if you can. Thanks.

*Century Rider*

His daily commute,
A regular route,
Astride his bike,
A ride to like.

Then weekends came
With more of the same
Riding a "century",
An adventurer, he.

It came to an end
On a road with no bend
His joy is now hushed,
By a car he was crushed.

But where is the moral,
The memorial laurel?
At bad drivers, I'm pissed.
PLA, you will be missed!
