Small improvements in Otto

Up until now, Otto could either geotag photos by city or geocorrelate them using GPX files. The latest version introduces a new -l option that allows you to geotag photos using the provided geographical coordinates and altitude. It looks something like this:

otto -d "/path/to/source/dir" -l "48.355,11.773,494"

Another new -r option can be used to transfer only RAW files as follows:

otto -d "/path/to/source/dir" -r NEF

Speaking of RAW files, Otto now uses the exiv2 tool to write EXIF metadata (copyright, author, description, etc.) to RAW files — something that wasn't possible before.

Instead of rsync, Otto now uses wget to fetch notes. This means that you no longer need to have rsync installed on the machine hosting notes, and you don't have to deal with login credentials.

And that's about it. As always, you'll find the latest version of Otto on GitHub.

On getting old

When you're 21

  • Start drinking with your uni mates at 8 p.m.
  • Run out of vodka by 3 a.m.
  • Realize you haven't had a proper meal in the entire day. Walk to a 24/7 greasy spoon on the other side of town to get a hot meal (with occasional cockroaches in it) at 4 a.m.
  • Back in the dorm room by 5 a.m. Smoke and talk about literature, politics, philosophy, and whatnot till 7 a.m.
  • Realize you have lectures at 9am.
  • Sleep for an hour and attend lectures the rest of the day.

When you're 54

  • Wake up and celebrate the fact that you slept well and didn't have to get up during the night to pee.
