Just want to say that this plugin is great! It works perfectly with the S3-compatible Backblaze S3 storage service, just needed to extract the region parameter from the S3 endpoint name as described in the Backblaze help pages (it is the second part of the S3 endpoint, e.g. us-west-001). Thanks for your great work!
