Quick update

I'm behind again with posting the daily photo for April. It was very much a desperation shot yesterday as I was working on the computer most of the day. Having finished the video editing I had two attempts at uploading the video, but cancelled both times because, after apparently making good progress, the upload just stalled and even went backwards. Having at one point reached 61% uploaded, the progress line redrew itself and only reached 36%.

Anyway, this morning I started the upload just after 7 a.m. (when the US would still be asleep) and also used the old version of the YouTube Studio. I was hoping it would be finished by 9 a.m. when the online Welsh class started, but it was fully uploaded and processed before 8 a.m. So I don't know whether the new version of the uploading page is rubbish or whether YouTube was just overloaded in the early evening (UK time).

Today I've spent a couple of hours today replacing the gibberish that YouTube produces automatically with an actual transcript of the Welsh. Tomorrow I can also add the English subtitles and I'll be able to make the video public.

So here's yesterday's photo: Easy peelers

19/30 for my photo a day in April

The Co-op sell boxes of what they call "Easy peelers". They're not always the same fruit, but they're small orange citrus fruit and they are indeed easy to peel.
