S29 2018-06-01 9:17:00 AM The data is the thing to concentrate on. Not the systems, they can change—but the data will live on and is much harder to move transform and preserve. Software should serve the data.
S0 2018-06-09 12:28:00 AM Testing a Cargo-based microblog. Does this work?
S2 2018-06-09 12:30:00 AM This is another test. The last didn't quite do its thing.
S3 2018-06-09 2:55:24 AM Just another test. From the train. With a timezone?
S4 2018-06-09 9:08:34 AM Maybe it works now?
S5 2018-06-09 11:27:03 AM When is now?
S8 2018-06-12 10:01:00 PM No, not quite; dates are wrong and annoying.
S9 2018-06-12 10:29:00 PM Okay, dates are working, and now displayed in the timezone in which they were written. (Weird, but I like it.)
S6 2018-06-13 1:24:54 AM Does this return to where it should?
S7 2018-06-13 1:54:19 AM Right, I think I have a Cargo-based microblog sort of working. Needs an RSS feed though.
S10 2018-06-13 2:33:00 AM All of which is irrelevant to the task at hand of course, so I'll go back to that.
S11 2018-06-13 6:52:00 AM Ergh. It never quite works does it.
S13 2018-06-14 12:37:00 AM Another day, another test post. The chill is in the air today, but the tests are all passing and so things are well with the world.
S14 2018-06-16 1:14:00 AM Heading to the Goods Shed in Claremont for donuts and coffee. No coding this morning, there's too much confusion in the brain around the proper setup of Ansible. And it's a beautiful day.
S15 2018-06-16 1:26:00 AM I have one computer in my backpack, one in my pocket, and a third in a data-centre in Singapore. That's enough. I guess I have to count the various other services I use too, though. Takes the tally up a bit, and the diffusion of data as well. Hmm.
S16 2018-06-16 9:52:00 AM Good reasons not to use a phone camera in low light: Cut nails (cropped).jpg
S17 2018-06-16 10:47:00 PM I think I'll go and see the sun rise.
S18 2018-06-16 11:41:00 PM The best coffee in Fremantle, today? Little Lefroy's on South Terrace. Marvelous place.
S19 2018-06-18 10:09:00 AM Just upgraded 5 wikis to MediaWiki 1.31… so far looking good.
S20 2018-06-19 4:12:00 AM There's something to be said for an information system that permits its users to build their own bureaucracy, without unduly involving the coders.
S27 2018-06-19 8:57:00 AM Everyone should try running their own website! (I'd qualify that, but you get the gist yeah?)
S28 2018-06-21 2:14:00 AM I really do prefer using Thunderbird for email. So much quicker than any webmail, and allows for archiving (to local disk, and thus to my main backup régime) to be part of the normal daily workflow.

S31 2018-06-23 8:39:00 AM "Don't talk about reducing waste, talk about reducing packaging, because that's what all the waste is." — so says Huddersfield University garbology chap Rodger Hobsmith on the radio.
S32 2018-06-24 3:21:00 AM Heading to Karrakatta to take photos for someone from the internet. 20180624 1119 bike on train.jpg
S33 2018-06-26 9:26:00 AM I seem to spend quite a lot of time listening to Radio 4 radio plays while I work. I rarely actually manage to follow the stories, but their general vibe seeps into the code, and bits of text can take on the flavour of a bar in 1876 or some exploration of a umbrella factory. It's quite nice!
S34 2018-06-27 2:05:00 AM The rain is coming down this morning! But in proper Perth fashion it only lasts 15 minutes at a time and so it's easy to rush between buses and places.
S35 2018-06-27 9:43:00 AM I love those times when I get to close all windows other than what I'm working on, and focus on just one problem!
S36 2018-06-27 9:46:00 AM Ha! The latest Between the Brackets takes a little swipe at TiddlyWiki community! :P
S38 2018-06-28 8:19:00 AM Where should extensions document their APIs? https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API_talk:Extensions#Extensions_should_use_subpages_instead_of_the_API_NS
S37 2018-06-28 9:18:00 AM Nail Stout is the shit.
S39 2018-06-28 9:39:00 AM I seem to be getting drunk, and reorganising websites. Is this a wise combination? Have I crested the Ballmer Peak?
S40 2018-06-28 9:54:00 AM Another general-purpose wiki, I think: https://wiki.org.uk/
S41 2018-06-29 12:37:00 PM So 500px have removed access (or discoverability?) from the open licensed content on their site. Which is terrible, and a good reason to host your own website on which you make the rules. You're still beholden to the people who write the software you use, but that's a far better relationship because
