A Tuesday morning

The internet seems to be full of bad news at the moment, so I’m ignoring it and focussing on some nice little code projects that are calming and friendly and only slightly maniacally frustrating.

SVG Translate tickets are petering out; version 0.10.3 is just out with some login fixes and language updates.

This morning I’m working on adding a ‘messages exist’ notification icon to the PageTriage toolbar.

And I think I’ve cracked the search-debouncing for my Embed Wikimedia plugin, so might be able to move on with the metadata- and appearance-improving stuff that I’ve been trying to do for weeks.

First and last drop

There’s a grey-haired relaxed vibe about this place. Cheap beer (they can’t take the beer kegs to their temporary digs in the Tennis Club) and sausages in buns on the way. Everyone seems to know each other, although there’s something of a divide between the bowling club folk and the newcomers from the Workers’ Club. A friendly dog watches the arrivals with me, parked next to the front door.

Take photos of things that are soon to go

It’s Friday afternoon, knock-off time, and I’m heading to Freo to either find a quiet corner of a pub in which to work on embed-wikimedia, or if the light is good to take some photos of the Fremantle Bowling Club’s old building. Demolition is to start soon and although I’m sure the Club’s archivists have it all well in hand, I’m not sure that any photos will make it on to Commons. But yeah, beer before anything, I think.
