As of today, my shed can finally be locked up. Time now to decide where to put things.
(Firefox asked me to rate it this morning, with a little picture of a broken heart and five stars to select from. I gave it five (’cause it’s brilliant) and then it sent me to a survey on mozilla.com titled “Heavy User V2”, which sounds like the name of an confused interplanetary supply ship.) Today […]
It’s MediaWiki Documentation Day 2017! So I’ve been documenting a couple of things, and I’ve added a bit to the Xtools manual. The latter is actually really useful, not so much from the end-user’s point of view because I dare say they’ll never read it, but I always like writing documentation before coding. It makes […]
The Freospace blogs for Ficra and Gibson Park have gone offline. The former I guess because they’ve merged with the Fremantle Society, and maybe the latter is just not active at all? Would have been nice to at least put a notice up on their sites explaining what’s going on. Anyway, I’ve removed their feeds […]
Piwigo is pretty good! I mean, I mostly use Flickr at the moment, because it is quick, easy to recommend to people, and allows photos to be added to Trove. But I’d rather host things myself. Far easier for backups, and so nice to know that if the software doesn’t do a thing then there’s […]
Fremantle Bid has been added to Planet Freo, and Moore and Moore café seems to have let their web hosting lapse so have been temporarily removed.
My new house didn’t have a shed, but just a carport with no fourth wall (it was brilliant in every other respect, really—even insulated in the ceiling). So, as part of the WMF’s “Spark Project” (that aims to encourage employees to do more than just be wiki geeks), I decided to turn the carport into […]
It turned out to be simpler than I’d thought to add the ENUM-modifying feature to Tabulate’s schema editor, so I’ve done it and released version 2.9.0.
I’m trying to figure out if it’s worthwhile adding better support for enumerated fields in Tabulate. MySQL’s ENUM type is useful when one has an immutable list of options such as days of the week, seasons of the year, planets in the solar system, or suits in a deck of cards. It can also be […]
The Wikimedia genealogy project now has a mailing list.
