Create Images Of Identi.ca Messages

I created a web utility to create an image of Identi.ca messages, also known as dents. The images can be used when referencing Identi.ca messages in other systems such as Google Plus. To create an image you will need to know the numeric notice id. The format of the URL is: http://dentimage.com/notice-id-goes-here.png

Below is an image of Evan Prodromou's first dent. The URL for this image is:  http://dentimage.com/1.png










To get the notice id for a dent find the dent on Identi.ca and click on or hover above the time the dent was published. You will see the numeric notice-id. That number is what you need to insert into this URL http://dentimage.com/notice-id-goes-here.png

StatusNet instances other than Identi.ca can be used by specifying the hostName parameter. The following are valid parameter names: h, hostName, host, and instance. For example: http://dentimage.com/408450.png?h=brainbird.net
