||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.

||Testing a Cargo-based microblog. Does this work?
||2018-06-09 12:30:00 AM
||This is another test. The last didn't quite do its thing.
||2018-06-09 2:55:24 AM
||Just another test. From the train. With a timezone?
||2018-06-09 9:08:34 AM
||Maybe it works now?
||2018-06-09 11:27:03 AM
||When is now?
||2018-06-12 10:01:00 PM
||No, not quite; dates are wrong and annoying.
||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.)
||2018-06-13 1:24:54 AM
||Does this return to where it should?
||2018-06-13 1:54:19 AM
||Right, I think I have a Cargo-based microblog sort of working. Needs an RSS feed though.
||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.
||2018-06-13 6:52:00 AM
||Ergh. It never quite works does it.

||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.

||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.

||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.

||Good reasons not to use a phone camera in low light:
||2018-06-16 10:47:00 PM
||I think I'll go and see the sun rise.

||The best coffee in Fremantle, today? Little Lefroy's on South Terrace. Marvelous place.

||Just upgraded 5 wikis to MediaWiki 1.31… so far looking good.

||There's something to be said for an information system that permits its users to build their own bureaucracy, without unduly involving the coders.

||Everyone should try running their own website! (I'd qualify that, but you get the gist yeah?)

||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.

||"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.

||Heading to Karrakatta to take photos for someone from the internet.

||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!

||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.
||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!
||2018-06-27 9:46:00 AM
||Ha! The latest Between the Brackets takes a little swipe at TiddlyWiki community! :P

||I seem to be getting drunk, and reorganising websites. Is this a wise combination? Have I crested the Ballmer Peak?
||2018-06-28 9:54:00 AM
||Another general-purpose wiki, I think: https://wiki.org.uk/

||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
