Vergogna Ipernity / Shame on you, Ipernity

Quando iniziai questo blog decisi di utilizzare Ipernity come servizio di hosting per le immagini: l'interfaccia era gradevole, il servizio gratuito e chiunque poteva scaricare le immagini nel formato che più gli piaceva. Nell'aprile del 2013 le condizioni di servizio sono cambiate all'improvviso e senza preavviso: nessuno può più scaricare immagini gratuitamente, neppure io. Il mio lavoro di anni è rimasto in possesso di Ipernity e le mie immagini sono ostaggio del loro sito: o pago o non posso né riprendermele né consentire ai visitatori di queste pagine di scaricarle. Sto, faticosamente, recuperando i file da fortunosi backup, facendo di nuovo le scansioni mancanti e sostituendo le immagini sui post; piano, piano tutto sarà sul mio Google Drive e di nuovo liberamente scaricabile.
Meditate, gente.
