Home for the weekend to recharge batteries, relax, and see old friends. Also, time to plough through a bit more of Cloud Atlas (wonderful, it excites me every time I open it) and hack up a bit of PHP (the del.icio.us links to your right). And now, back to London, to the erecting of shelving, and the daily grind.
(I’ll write up Blogs In Action at a later date).
Matt Haughey’s backyard is just beautiful. Perhaps could do with more shrubbery, but the colours, oh, the colours. I dream of having a garden. Thankfully, now we’re into BST again, the local park is going to see a lot more use.
A small amount of hackery later and my del.icio.us links (see right) are now working. They’re not stored in my blog db – it’s just a window on the posts from the most recent day where there were any posts. A little look into what’s going through my digital mind, if you like. If you’re interested in the code, let me know; it’s nothing revolutionary, but hey, it works. Next up: photo-stuff.
Tired as I am of the B word, I’m going along to Blogs in Action tonight – in part out of curiosity, in part on work-grounds. Looking forward to it, if only to hear perspectives from some more corporate angles than often end up being discussed at these things. Also, there’s the whole moblogging angle – Charlie Shick presenting on Nokia Lifeblog, and lots of UK mobile-network people in the audience listening eagerly. Like I said, could be interesting – do say hello if you see me.
Just realized: I’ve been in my current job – my first “proper” job, so to speak – a whole year now. As years go, it’s been one of the best – lots of new experiences, new skills, new friends. Plus: I’m still solvent! Time evidently flies when you’re having fun.
A thought: Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code is the Kevin Bacon of Amazon. People who bought product x it seems, always bought The Da Vinci Code.
Some things are a little broken right now (like, you know, permalinks, etc) because I’ve moved to WordPress. I’m doing my best to fix them as I speak. Slight 34sp.com and
mod_rewrite issues, from what I can see…
Am frustrated. Blacklist is timing out, refusing to let me de-spam; the spam-mound grows higher. Daily, I look at WordPress, contemplating that switch. Then I look at the data I have here and decide I value my sanity more. Some more fixing around the site, today; the articles page now works. Even if it is a little sparse.
