    @jjjake Is it correct that items cannot be deleted once uploaded via the API?
    If so, what do you recommend I do if I push up a test item that isn't of any value.

    @jjjake
    @palewire_twitter upload to the test_collection (e.g. item.upload(files, metadata=dict(collection='test_collection')))
    Items can be taken down, but we usually don't delete. Files can be deleted.
    When you upload to the test_collection, the item will be taken down after about 30 days.

    Someone asked about gifcities api. Here is an example: https://gifcities.archive.org/api/v1/gifsearch?q=balloons&seed=865.8468726583526

    When we break into groups, maybe we can break into separate video chats for each group

    I think I missed my 15 second intro (fighting another fire)... "Hi, I'm Neal. I run Hacker Factor.com and FotoForensics.com. I also created the Internet Archive hidden service on Tor. Computer security, networking, forensics, and overall trouble maker."

    Hi all, I'm just dropping in now; what's the status? How can I best participate remotely?

    Right now everybody is eating (or about to eat) pizza here. We should be back at it shortly.
    I think mek mentioned setting up video chat for the individual groups once we get started.
    There's also a zoom link for video chat, but not much is going on right now. https://zoom.us/j/419878918

    @jjjake I'm noticing that after an item with a couple images attached as files is uploaded the URLs to the files on archive.org are not always immediately available. Am I screwing something up or is that expected behavior?
    @palewire_twitter can you send me an identifier as an example? The files should be available pretty shortly after they've been uploaded, but maybe not immediately.

    They seem to show up pretty quickly. So they could be there by the time you look.
    After I upload an item I'm syncing the newly minted IA id in my local database. I'd also like to sync the URL of items alongside it. But if I retrieve the item via the API immediately after upload I find it's often not there yet.
    I could write a task to "go behind" a bit later and fill in the blanks, but I'd rather not.
    Would it be safe to "assume" the URLs will be there with a reliable namespace?

    Eh. Weird. I'm private messaging you. Let's try some other service

    @jjjake
    @palewire_twitter Yes, it is safe to predict the URL for files: https://archive.org/download/<identifier>/<filename>
    or https://archive.org/download/<identifier>/<path>/<to>/<my>/<file>
    Does that help?
