I went through a few days ago to collect all of the updates and work that I’d done since the last time I did one of these posts. Sometimes just looking through an activity log is all you need to remember that you’re actually doing something. Here’s what I’ve been working on:
- isd” is a developing page of material for my ongoing story project. I’ve written it in my “Wiki Fiction” post. This particular page is basically sysadminning-punk, if I may be so bold. The story as a whole is largely a future history of human’s expansion into the solar system and beyond, using Kim Stanley Robinson’s idea of Accelerando. This piece in particular is all about the emergence of an asynchronous database network that eventually replaces the Internet as we know it, because interstellar distances render trans-planetary TCP (in any form) unworkable. I’ve got an outline and I’m slowly working to fill in the blanks. Editing, ideas, and any amount of text are all welcome.
- I added a page to the technical writing section on “Why the Documentation Sucks,” and I’ve done some additional editing and revising of this section of the wiki. The Why the Documentation Sucks page has also served as the foundation of my post about documentation publishing systems.
- I’ve added a number of new posts that I hope won’t be forgotten too quickly. They are:
- There has also been some discussions of new and old rhizomes on the discourse pages.
- A few weeks ago I posted a few new scripts in the code section. Tell me what you think:
- My post, 9 Awesome SSH Tricks from March 2011, spent a number of hours on the front page of hacker new. You can read the comments over there, and probably on some other sites as well.
The coolest part about this is that some of you have helped to build a page of ssh tricks on the wiki that go above and beyond the little tricks that I use.
And finally,I ‘d like to welcome Kevin Grande, who made a new folk page recently. I’m also very sorry that I haven’t been updating more frequently. I started a new job on September 26, and between that and my usual gallivanting around for singing and dancing my blogging habit has. One the other hand I’m writing about 1200 words a day, and life is pretty good so no complaints there.
Onward and Upward!
