Every so often I write this same thing. It’s Monday (any Monday) and so it’s time to write it again.
The solution to very few problems is to write more code. Usually, it is better to write things in English, explaining whatever the thing is.
This is mainly because it takes a good long while to write code, and continues to take time for as long as the codebase exists. This time is better spent actually doing something — code is pretty much always ‘meta’ work, or work that supports other work.
And don’t go saying that all work is like that, because it’s just not. (Hurrumph.) Working on preserving, describing, and storing all the books of the realm is work that has value in itself; writing the software for doing that is meta-work. I’d rather work on the former.
Linux Voice has reached their target, and so shall be published! Hooray!
The Fremantle Society AGM is on tomorrow evening at Victoria Hall, from 6PM. There’s going to be a ballot for the position of president, which should be fun. I shall be voting for Henty Farrar.
I’ll post the Freopedia map that we’ve been working on, tomorrow.
The MoonMoon underneath Planet Freo has been upgraded. If anyone notices anything strange, could they please let me know? Thanks!
No database should ever have a ‘status’ field. They always get created, but never should. The status is always determined from other properties and relationships!
The problem with an explicit status is that it can (no: will) fail to agree with the status indicated by the rest of the system.
Enjoying Semantic MediaWiki’s speed-of-development, but not quite digging its non-codiness.
The wood really wasn’t being nice to me, today. I was dressing some old jarrah with a scrub plane, and it just wasn’t cutting the mustard or the wood. Of course, it simply wasn’t sharp:
That shiny bit in the middle isn’t a trick of the light, it’s bluntiness.
However, I have no grinder, and this blade needs a fair bit taken off, so I’m giving up for the day…
Maybe I should get one of these from Carba-Tec:
Or be tricky and build something like this:
The trouble with that latter is that it’s pretty impossible to find the stone for such a thing! Otherwise, would be brilliant.
Ah well… I’ll keep honing that blade…
@Roel: it looks like this is IMO-9550395 Swan River Bridge’s[a] third visit to Freo this year. Can’t find any information about why it got its name, unfortunately.
Agh, this bug in the Dokuwiki definition list plugin is driving me crazy. I’m going back to something else.
Scanning and whisky gang the gither!
