With apologies to all artists behind Send in the Clowns. A 10-minute-to-write parody.
I've uploaded my Jageriser for people to play with. To use it, download Jagerise.zip and then:
So glad I've got time for dumb fun again.
The book I'm writing has advise in it for a coder. While I was writing it I found little bits of thought that I hadn't put into practice. So I put them into practice. I've just updated my site from the ground up. Let me know if anything's busted.
I'm getting started on one of my long-dormant projects. Writing a tongue-in-check resource book, using a slice of von Explaino's "Look At Things Through The Lens Of Something Else." Participating in the Tech Misfits group on Facebook has helped me keep focus (thank you) and I've finished a first-ish draft of 13,823 words.
Forums. Tumblr. Twitter.
I've collected a number of pins/ patches over the years. I'd like to use them but I don't want to poke holes in all my clothes/ permanently affix patches to jackets I grow out of. What do you do with yours to bring them with you?
My place of work has been a source of constant change for about 10 years now. Restructures, realignments, reorganizing; but we're just about to hit a change that's putting all the others to shame. Complete redesign. New reporting lines. External audit. The works. This is putting a strong strain on morale and highlighting our former collaborative culture has been eroded. Over the years we've had a few attempts at communities of practice for coders, getting people together from different areas, bouncing ideas off each other, trying to get a community going.
