Welcome to Cardigan Bay

Cardigan Bay is my new wiki-engine written in Clojure / ClojureScript. I’ve been working on it for about three months, and it’s a long way from finished, but now interesting enough for people to start playing with (and hopefully giving me some feedback on). The goal is for this to be the new engine behind […]

What’s up? August 2019 Edition

Gosh … we’re half way through the year already. So what am I up to in programming? Clojure I still think it’s a wonderful language. Not doing as much as I’d like. But it’s still great. One thing I did a few months ago was port the terminal version of Mind Traffic Control to it. […]

ThoughtStorms is nothing but LinkBins

If ThoughtStorms is looking a bit busy but weird these days, it’s because it’s starting to become my “bookmarking” application. I’m not quite sure where I’m going with this, but for a while I’ve had a bookmarklet to add interesting pages to the ThoughtStorms LinkBin page. Now I have a new way to route those […]

Unification : BootDown

I’m working on a series of small “unifications”. Attempts to bring several of my different projects closer together. This is to share more code between them, or allow them to work more closely together. Today, I’ve been updating BootDown, my quick and dirty static site generator so that it now uses the same library (txlib.py) […]

Travelling without a laptop

Why, yes. This is, indeed, OWL running on the PocketCHIP. Here’s the story. I spent 12 days recently, travelling in the south of Brazil and Uruguay border. And I decided, as an experiment, to see if I could live without my laptop. I wasn’t meant to be working, but I always like to keep some […]

Project ThoughtStorms Update

Been working quite a lot on Project ThoughtStorms, the new Python / Bottle based wiki engine behind ThoughtStorms in the last few days. I can’t believe that I’ve spent 15 years building a wiki without creating my own software. That error is going to be rectified from now on. Sure, most of what I’m doing […]

Project ThoughtStorms : Wikish Plugin Update

I’m updating my copy of the Smallest Federated Wiki, and the plugin format has evolved again. (Not surprising, the SFW is still in its experimental stage.) So, I’ve broken out my plugin for ThoughtStorms / SdiDesk format (wikish) from the original Project ThoughtStorms and made a dedicated git repository in the recommended format, naming convention […]

Welcome to 2015 (part 2)

Bloody hell! I just wrote a blog post and WordPress lost it. Grrrr … The short resume was : – yes, I’m late (Feb) continuing my “Welcome to 2015” blog posts. – last year I got the functional programming bug. Haskell is pretty damned good, but I’ve fallen for Clojure because a) dynamic types, b) […]
