Updating my walking map with the new names for the Overground lines

Okay, so I haven’t done any more walks, but I have now updated my progress map to include the newly-named Overground lines.

This also means that I can tick off 3 new lines: the Liberty, the Lioness and the Weaver.

Testing video uploads using micro.blog Premium

Just upgraded my micro.blog account to Premium and playing around with video uploads.

I’m torn about the maximum 75MB file size. I get the thinking and understand that this stops the cost getting out of hand and also discourages people posting long video content, but it was quite a faff scrunching this pretty short video down to size, and it has lost loads of quality. Uploading video using the iOS and Mac apps seems a bit temperamental too.

Walking the TfL map – 13 February

This one was a bit of a slog to be honest. Walking through drizzle to finish off the Northern line.
