Como no perder las fotos del teléfono

La combinación de tener buena cámara en el teléfono, y tener el teléfono todo el tiempo a mano, hace que uno saque fotos con dicho dispositivo bastante seguido. Por no decir todo el tiempo.

Lo que no es tan fácil o automático es cómo guardar las fotos, cómo salvarlas de manera que no perderlas si te roban el celular, o lo perdés, o se te rompe, o se rompe la memoria interna, etc. Y además, cómo tenerlas siempre a mano: poder ir a buscarlas fácil para meterlas en un documento y mandarlas por mail, o mezclarlas con las fotos de la cámara grande, etc.

Yo tengo algo armado que me soluciona esto, hace rato, y me está funcionando tan bien que pensé en compartirlo. ¿Es trivial de montarlo para que funcione? No. Pero una vez armado todo, anda pipí cucú. Y gratis :D

Yes!

El setup o configuración tiene tres partes: un servicio online, el teléfono, y la compu o laptop donde trabajes normalmente.

El servicio online que uso es Flickr. Podés sacar una cuenta gratis, te da 1000 GB de almacenamiento. Son cuatro clicks, dale.

Luego, te instalás la aplicación de Flickr en el teléfono, y la configurás para que automáticamente suba las fotos a la nube cuando estés conectado por WiFi. Acá, algunos detalles. Está piola que las suba automáticamente, pero no te consuma internet de la compañía de teléfonos, así que no vas a terminar pagando más a fin de mes. Y funciona bien el "subirlas automáticamente", si estás conectado te las sube al toque, y no es para nada intrusivo. Además, te las sube por default en modo "no compartido con nadie", así que no tengas miedo en sacarte fotos en bolas o al resumen de la tarjeta de crédito, que nadie va a ver esas fotos (a menos que vayas al sitio web de Flickr, las elijas, y les cambies los permisos).

Hasta acá, tenés un backup automático de las fotos. Todo lo que saques lo vas a tener en la nube. Queda el último paso, que es tener las fotos bien a mano.

Para eso, yo tengo un script que corro cada dos horas automáticamente (lo puse en el crontab; dos horas parece mucho, pero no quería pegarle a Flickr todo el tiempo indiscriminadamente, y de última si quiero bajar algo que recién subió y no quiero esperar que se cumplan las dos horas, corro el script a mano). El script va a Flickr, se fija qué fotos nuevas hay en el álbum donde la aplicación del teléfono las sube sola, y las baja. Simple y efectivo.

Lo ejecuto así:

baja_flickr.py --quiet album_id algun_path

El --quiet es para que si todo funciona como es esperado no tire ninguna salida, así crontab no me manda mail al cuete (al principio, especialmente al probarlo a mano, no le pongan esta opción). El album_id es el identificador del álbum en Flickr donde se suben las fotos automáticamente, la forma más fácil de saber este numerito es ir al sitio de Flickr, ir al álbum donde están estas fotos, y sacar el código de la URL. Finalmente, algun_path es el directorio donde querés que el script te ponga las fotos que baja.

Un detalle importante, para que esto funcione. Como dije arriba, las fotos no son visibles para cualquiera, así que el script tiene que autenticarse como ustedes. Esto se maneja automáticamente, pero el script tiene que saber unos datos de ustedes; como pueden ver en el script, tienen que poner dos claves en dos archivos, más vuestro id de usuario de flickr en una constante. Las dos claves esas las sacan de acá.

Finalmente, un comentario sobre cómo se guardan las fotos bajadas. El script arma el nombre del archivo como, por ejemplo, el siguiente:

20160507-201900-26273387653_c1da64d753_o.jpg

Básicamente el nombre se arma primero con la fecha y hora de cuando fue tomada la foto, y luego con el nombre original que le puso Flickr.

Muchas películas nuevas

Se nota que le dediqué tiempo a la series, porque no vi tantas películas estos meses.

  • 10 Rules for Sleeping Around: -0. Una comedia de elaboradísimo enredos, bastante divertidas por partes, pero muy, muy mala.
  • And So It Goes: -0. Comedia sencilla, medio touchy, pero nada que termine de valer la pena.
  • Jupiter Ascending: +0. Mucha acción, tiros y persecuciones, más una chica y un chico, mucho lugar común, bah... pero estuvo interesante, especialmente por la mezcla de iconografías y explicaciones pseudocientíficas que daban :). Notable colección de actores conocidos, también.
  • Kingsman: The Secret Service: +0. Como una de James Bond pero en joda. Divertida, pasatista.
  • Kon-Tiki: +0. El hombre y sus obsesiones. Gran historia, maravilloso que sea verdad :) Muy bien filmada, aunque un toque lenta en algunos momentos.
  • Only You: +0. Comedia romanticona de mitad de los 90, deberían saber de lo que hablo. Así y todo está linda: Marisa Tomei y Robert Downey Jr. en Italia :)
  • Perfect Sense: +0. Me encanta como muestra lo que pasaría en la situación hipotética que describe, más allá que no trata de explicarla, me encanta como está filmada, actuada.
  • Radio Free Albemuth: -1. Con una trama rara, muy lenta, poco creíble, no me llevaba a nada, a duras penas terminé de verla.
  • Reservoir Dogs: +1. Un clásico absoluto, un Tarantino de pura cepa. Impecable.
  • Salmon Fishing in the Yemen: +1. Una hermosa historia, con el tipo de humor que me gusta, con unos paisajes increibles y buenas actuaciones.
  • Sleeping with Other People: +0. Una comedia romanticona divertida.
  • Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens: +1. Bien hecha, bien contada, con mil guiños, y con un detalle interesante (teniendo en cuenta que es una película, y que es de ciencia ficción): creible.
  • The Intern: +0. Es una comedia simpática, bien llevada, buenas actuaciones y con ritmo.
  • The Signal: -0. A nivel argumento con algo de sentido en una parte, pero demasiado volado todo alrededor, y el resto de la peli que simplemente no suma.
  • Transcendence: +0. Con muchas partes demasiado fantasiosas, pero el núcleo del asunto da para pensar bastante; muy interesante para disparar puntos de vista.

Por otro lado, aparecieron toneladas de nuevas para ver. Me hice un scriptcito que va a una página en YouTube de FilmTrailerZone, donde hay una lista de muchos trailers, y te los empieza a listar hasta que llega a lo que había visto en la última corrida. Te da unos datos del trailer, y vos le indicás si querés que lo baje, o no, o pare de ofrecer trailers. Luego los baja. Todo por linea de comandos, claro.

Bueno, decía, encima que me hice ese script y estoy viendo más trailers (lo que redunda en más pelis anotadas), en esta lista hay algunas recomendaciones que me hicieron, más un par de títulos que saqué de alguna nota en un diario o revista.
