Bob,
That 2 mm coro is kind of hard to get . It's not particularly expensive but the shipping due to the size can be costly. I live in Sacramento which is a moderately good sized city and none of the larger suppliers carry it or want to have it shipped here because it's not that popular.
JJ
Facebook ruined the listservs, so I won't go there for anything. If people want some bad pics of that project, I'll email them, but it is just too many steps to get them up here.
I managed to buy 2mm Coroplast in Victoria, BC, and it was bundled with a regular shipment.

I have. a scrap of 2mm Coroplast in black that I use for a ventilation pad under a laptop.

Thank you for deprecating Facebook. I've never touched it [intentionally] and their machinations have been laid bare by the current election cycle.

If you have a Gmail account, you can just bulk upload a folder of pics to drive.google.com, share it, and post the resulting link.

They aren't inline in the forum, but easier than sharing with everyone who wants to see by email.

I also avoid Facebook if at all possible.

Thanks, but I don't use Gmail. AFAIK, my easiest way would be through dropbox, and I have not messed with that for a year. How much demand is there, really? Any volunteers to receive and post a batch?

One can build a world-facing or private server on a $70 Raspberry Pi.

Self-hosting web services and software ensures only you have access to your data and full control over it. Let me show you my favorite self-hosted apps right now for the single-board computer Raspberry Pi! .... Nextcloud is a full-featured private cloud solution with the power to edit documents, share calendars, host contacts and much more. Of course I also included Pi-hole, the DNS network filter is the reason, many people bought a Raspberry Pi.
I haven't tried one. ....yet. I feel a need want to run a program that's not maintained on Mac OS.

Nice project!

Thanks. Can you adjust something to undo the cropping?

They aren't cropped? They're just uploaded directly from what you sent me.

Unless you mean the thumbnails... If you double click a file, it will come up fully sized and you can flip through it like a gallery with the left/right arrows.

Ahh, two clicks. Thanks again.
