When I wrote this I neither knew where exactly soup is broken nor that nordern already had a workaround for this. It was just something that seemed worth mentioning.

Eventually I'll write some quick and dirty python script to clean up & backup my own soup. For the size one could go for the smaller (also standard) size of /friends and use the source link to refer to the full size (if the actual source is not available) but I think hardly anyone uses www.soup.io/friends. Except for the search box (that always just gives me the congrats page) there is no advantage over using my own personal friends page (artifexexmachina.soup.io/friends). Same layout, problem gone. Also funny because soup let's you see someone else friends posts on someones else friends page. After all, there is a reason that soup used to refer to friends/followers as stalkers.

Soup's missing pictures

I was looking at my old posts from six years ago when I noticed that a lot of them seem to be broken. The pictures just won't load and opening them in a separate tab always yields "Error 502: Bad gateway". I also saw this in quite a few other soups.

For the majority of posts this means that only the small "preview" picture is broken. Removing the last bit of the filename in the pictures URL (e. g. http://asset-a.soupcdn.com/asset/1647/0191_a782_690.jpeg to http://asset-a.soupcdn.com/asset/1647/0191_a782.jpeg) will show the full size picture and thus could be used to restore the corrupted posts. I might write a python script for that later...
