10/03/20 05:45 to 07:21, Working on memory book

10/03/20 14:15 to 15:53, Working on memory book

11/03/20 06:26 to 08:44, Working on memory book.

I’ve got 53 pages (75 sized for 6 by 9). There’s going to be maybe five pages of diagrams, and another page of references. How much more have I got to write?

Chapters

  • Completely restructure the opening chapter, cut it down and make it reasonable.
    • Do the list of what we want people to know and understand in the first chapter
  • The types chapter is acutally reasonable okay, might put more in as it grows, but otherwise happy to leave it for now until polish.
  • Linked list needs properly writing. There’s nothing there
  • Arrays also isn’t done. The structure exists but it’s just chat.
  • Classes needs reformatting: a way of properly refering to classes and to have also really worked out a nice way of separating the image from the explanation
  • Trees needs some editing and the images, but the material is mostly there. I feel like it would benefit from some exercises.

In general:

  • Look for definitions and key words: link, mnemonic and put them into the text
    • As part of this work out how we refer to the process ‘lock in’ a memory??
    • Rewrite the opennings to all chapters and start again.

15/03/20 08:17

I want to have 30,000 words at peak so I can edit down. That looks like being a reasonable thing.

Ways of increasing the page count:

  • Diagrams, a diagram for every image/link we have
  • Exercises - a page of exercises at the end of every chapter
  • Introductions and conclusions “This chapter will, this chapter has”
  • Lists of examples
  • Pithy quotes form other people about usefulness
  • Put all the rubbish in the appendixes

15/03/20 08:20

One of the things that will help will be finding a nice way of typesetting the difference between images and the things they refer to.

17/03/20 06:32 to 08:05, Working on memory book:

13,822 to 15,348

07/09/20 09:19 to 09:49, Upgrading +EQT emails

So right now I can send mail (to gmail) from joe@equalitytime.co.uk from G-suite -but the autoresponder goes to joeequalitytime@gmail (which should happen)

However, the email “Test Monday” to joe@www goes to joeeqaulity@gmail which is not what I want and might be some problem with DNS propergation.

07/09/20 09:49 to 10:03, +EQT

  • I had planned to only move the www email accounts, but I’ve actually moved the eqt ones as well because I’d already created some eqt ones in Gsuite.

07/09/20 10:03 to 10:39, +EQT

I’ve started the process of pointing the DNS records at the github pages site. It’s sort of working, but there’s a problem with the css?

08/09/20 08:03 to 08:53, Doing notes. +EQT

  • Also working out some next steps, as always
  • Also wrote the webmasters question: https://webmasters.stackexchange.com/q/131325/14932

08/09/20 09:12 to 09:20, More fixing notes, more getting on top of everything. +EQT

I like that this way of doing notes is working better. Like, there’s a lot of work that happens when processing the notes and it’s worth doing, particularly in concert with the internet files.

08/09/20 09:21 to 09:33, Thinking about good ways of using log files

08/09/20 09:48 to 10:10, +EQT Timesheet broken

09/09/20 07:23 to 07:38, Writing up notes

Notes on notes:

  • I’m NOT taking enought.

09/09/20 07:38 to 07:56, Thinking about notes

  • I want A place for them to be stored (that is backed up)
  • I want to write them locally first and then work up.
  • I’m tired.
  • Today I have to do the actual THINGs I’m meant to be doing.
  • But first, let me actually fix the THING.

So where to put this?

  • It’s one big file. I’d like to have it under version control MAYBE? Or MAYBE simply occsaionally backed up. It probably has to live on the server for the timesheet STUFF to work…
  • I could simply paste it into the timesheet…
  • I want it public because that’s what I want.
  • It’s effectively a weblog, so it goes on the personal site. That’s the backup.

09/09/20 07:38 to 07:56, Thinking about notes

I’ve put the main log file in the blog for now. …and While I’m here, I’ll treat myself to moving a post.

09/09/20 07:56, So what’s the next THING on the list.

  • Ah, a problem with doing it locally is that I don’t have an easy way to reach the todo list. Let’s see how we do.

09/09/20 08:09 to 08:12, https://github.com/eQualityTime/Home/issues/105

Sorting out minutes first

09/09/20 08:46 to 09:18, Fixing minutes +EQT

10/09/20 07:07 to 07:50, Starting with Google analytics

  • Notes: Twitter isn’t that healthy, particularly in terms of - unit-per-post.
  • fb is driving most of my links, despitre the fact that I hardly ever post links there.
  • Linkedin is doing suprisingly well, worth keeping going on that.
  • YouTube has it’s own analtics, but it turns out you can put a GA code in there.
  • I haven’t properly set up the analtics for the new WWW site.

10/09/20 07:52 to 07:56, Writing up notes

10/09/20 07:56 to 09:35, Email +EQT

  • I’ve imported signitures and such. I will, in the future, work out mirgrating emails and contacts
  • I’ve imported contacts
  • I’m looking at importing all mail.
    • I think I have to wait 24 hours for mail import.
  • I have one email to write.

10/09/20 10:20 to 10:30, +EQT

  • I have two emails to write.
    • One to the prison. Done
  • 10/09/20 smallest next step: I literally have to read an email.

Okay, the issue is that the SK and bg files don’t convert well with OBF. I’d better convert them and see what happens.

11/09/20 07:00 to 10:36, Working on WWW website

  • Wrote up the article
  • Spent a lot of time getting the allbooksever.csv right.
  • Fixed the jekyll issues

Things left to do:

  • Odre the covers.
  • Push to server
  • Write blog post.

11/09/20 19:48 to 20:16, Photo editing.

There where literally none I liked.

  • There is a ongoing problem with taking photos facing the sun. Lots of shady photos and overexposed backgrounds.

12/09/20 17:10, What do I want for the office?

  • Another monitor (that’s always what I want)
  • A better way of dealing with full screen STUFF.

  • A ‘outbox’
  • Clear out a few drawers.
  • A big TV for ‘adult rec room’.
  • Place for brainstorming - big workspace.
  • The mac mini put up.

  • doing the admin of a new operating system
  • This site https://www.reddit.com/r/youtubegaming/comments/64lprh/creating_stream_highlights_after_stream_ends/ has it that I can easily extract highlights from youtube while leaving the origianl video. Let’s have a look.
  • Interestingly, you can’t make changes for a few hours after you have, say, clipped a few seconds off the front. Does that mean that it’s hard to take multiple highlights from one stream?
  • I haven’t worked out highlights yet, but I did manage a tweet.
  • I’ve labeled a few streams
  • I’ve found the ‘save as new’ option, but it’s a bit scary to use. I can imagine it being a problem.
  • Having reviewed a couple of streams, I think you have to think in terms of individual separate tasks and break them down.

13/09/20 16:31 to 16:37, Clearing out the filespace

  • Included commiting the memory book, but not pushing it before delete. Sigh. My own fault, obviously
  • Now what? Check out the todo list? Crazy talk
  • Crap, the todo list is totally out of date. I’ve been not on top of things at all.

  • Found at that most of them aren’t interesting to look at.

19/09/20 06:24 to 06:46, I’m working on updating my parlimentary tracker

It’s not been working for a while, and it turns out that’s because my clever ‘I’ll get the data from everypolition, was a poor shout’.

I’ve setup a new list of mps names, but now I have to read it. and I’d like to do some proper python testing while I’m there.

19/09/20 08:20 to 09:08, More on Mps

I started with 34 items, but got to about 25. Included some DIY, phone calls, weeding out some doubles, that sort of thing. Was worthwhile. Included reviewing my feedly feeds which was just better than getting information from social media.

09/11/20 20:21 to 20:48, Working on Vision.

15/11/20 07:44 to 08:45, Doing cookery course.

  • Baking soda - if you have ‘too much’ baking soda to react with the acid, it’s probably there to increase browning.
  • Sous vide doens’t only cook meat precisely - it’s got a characteristic ‘edge to edge is the same level of done’ rather than ‘25% of your stake is more done that one want it’
  • The old CTO of microsoft is really interesting.
  • Heat diffiusion constants all turn out to be between like 1.2 and 1.8, and that turns out to be because water has a constant of 1.4 so the L=root(4dt)=root(5.6t) is a good aproximation
  • Rule of thumb - 4 minutes to go one cm. Now, if you have a six cm baked potatoe, then you need, 16 minutes for two, and then an hour for four cm.
  • It would be interesting to compare with the set heating times for oven THINGs

Wasted a lot of time on it.

17/12/20 10:56, Let’s think about cookery processes.

If I want to document cookery experiments then I also want to write them up. But, they are likely to be very multimedia, very link based, and should b e done reflectively. That says blog to me. It also means Ishould practice my food photography.

18/12/20 09:18 to 09:23, Setting up email properly on Thunderbird.

  • Also checking timings for games night.

  • Completed this file.

    • To the extent that they are edits to the blog, because they should be written properly.
  • I’m going to do a proper example now.

18/12/20 11:09 to 11:30, Working on Sibs draft.

This is quite hard, and they’ve written it in a much less positive way than I would phrase it. It’s also directly linked to me as a person. I have spoken to mum and shared it with her to check that she is okay with the general tone.

18/12/20 11:32, Leo again

  • Also cooking.

19/12/20 08:05 to 08:32, +EQT

  • We check quickbooks to see when the last inport was.
  • I reconciled up to 31/10/2020 on 10/11/2020
  • That was the last date I uploaded any files according to the audit log.
  • The way I checked that I wouldn’t import transactions multiple times was that I started the reconciliation and checked if any transactions turned up (this is probably good practice anyway.
  • I’ve reconcilled now.
  • Finding out how to sort bills.
  • Okay let me explain this.

Okay Joe, next time you reconcile an account here’s how you do it.

  • Get the paper copy.
  • Optional - tick off the bills (on paper) that should have been paid
  • Start the reconciliation (it will fail), putting in the end date and ending balance.* If there are any transactions to sort out, they should appear, but in general, there shouldn’t be any tranactions to reconcile.
  • Download the month’s figures from Unity and import. Remember to select format before the statment name
  • As you import, tick off the amounts on the bank statement. Make sure that anything that should be a bill, is matched to one.
  • IMPORTANT - double check the bills list and make sure the right THINGs have gone out.
  • Complete reconciliation.

I’ve added these instructions to the calendar

23/12/20 10:00 to 10:25, Trying QuickMouse.xcoderpoj +MouseSniper

  • I really want to get the hang of keyboard only darktable.
    • I’m going to need a list then.
  • Maybe the answer is a really programmable keyboard
  • Maybe the answer is that I write my own…
    • This is the python library for:
      • Moving and clicking the mouse: https://pyautogui.readthedocs.io/en/latest/
    • I wrote https://stackoverflow.com/questions/65422713/how-to-use-python-to-show-a-grid-over-my-screen
    • What’s the list….
      • Python to show image
      • Python to take and show screenshot
      • Refresh screenshot on enter
      • click on enter
      • change the grid based on numberpad
      • Python to take and show screenshot with grid
      • Python to take and show screenshot with grid from shortcut

23/12/20 11:58 to 13:45, Working on Mouse-Sniper with Leo (and may interuptions)

  • We have showing of an image,
  • We’re currently installing the screenshot library (took ages)
  • I don’t know if we’ll ever have a system shortcut
  • Installed the `keyboard’ module but ultimately discarded it when I found pyautogui could do the same thing

23/12/20 20:10 to 20:59, Working on Mouse-Sniper

  • While writing a Stack Overflow question I fixed the issue :)
  • This is a good time to try a debugger tho right?
  • Implemented zoom

23/12/20 21:54 to 22:59, Working on Mouse Sniper

  • Lots of rewriting
  • Put it at https://github.com/joereddington/Mouse-Sniper/tree/main and the next action is to write the blog

24/12/20 13:20 to 13:30, Working on Mouse Sniper

For my own personal amusement I try to use the mouse as little as possible during the working day. You could, I suppose, make the argument that it’s more efficient to do everything by keyboard shortcut, and I suppose it is, but it’s far less of an efficiency gain than a hundred other things I could do.

I approach this quite sportingly. I use whatpulse to keep track of the ratio of keystokes to mouseclicks over time, and spend a certain amount of fascinated time looking up obscure shortcut keys of all types.

Professionally, I do also have a general interest in keyboard control of devices from a accessibility perspective, but I should be clear that my main motivation is a general playfulness (I won’t deny that it’s useful to have a good working knowledge of what sites and organisations are good for accessibility, and it feels good to support them) With this motivation, I’m put together a short Python script recently that lets me quickly arrange mouse clicks via the keyboard. It was a nice little project for the Christmas break.

25/12/20 11:09, (and various other times) Working on Mouse Sniper

  • Got the cropping working so it’s a bit faster

26/12/20 20:10 to 22:05, Working on Mouse-sniper

  • I think the solution to a hotkey is to use automator, which is a shame for sharing, but still quite fun.

27/12/20 07:54, Hmm, the whatpulse thing is slighlty annoying, The loca

The logical solution is to add a count in my mouse snipe, but that feels like a lot of work for software I’d like to be more broadly used.

It’s also far too early to put it in - as it gets easier to use, it will get used more, and once it’s at the point of being used properly then it will start aquiring click s

29/12/20 06:38, Dragging is going to be hard with the mouse sniper, unless I store the first click and then have it execute slowly.

  • That does actually sound like a solution

29/12/20 09:01 to 10:28, Doing simplewriter on book

  • Started with 169 pages

29/12/20 10:13, I have reached the (old) page 17… that’s better than I thought, but we’ll see.

29/12/20 10:28, P20 I have reached ‘contributions’ - that’s actually a solid 90 minutes, time to do something else.

29/12/20 10:34, Okay, I’m looking at my list. I’ve onde at least the firsto ne.

01/01/21 09:37 to 09:39, Good morning. Let’s do this right.

Alright people, let’s do this one last time. My name is Joe Reddington. I was a postdoc and then I was bitten by a radioactive nonprofit. And for the last seven years I’ve been running the one and only eQuality Time.

I’m pretty sure you know the rest. You see I won some grants, lost a lot more, fell in love, worked with a lot of schools, MAYBE too many. Wrote code, worked with researchers, worked without researchers. Made art. Tried therapy, started massively oversharing, had kids, found out about the lockdown while in literal prison FFS, and waved goodbye to our income for 2020, I’m now finding a way back.

18/01/21 10:39 to 11:36, (B) 60 1 hour SimpleWriter on book

  • Starting to wonder if I need another dictionary with more common words
  • Added a citation when I borrowed a line, that’s probably overkill.
  • Got to line 381, feels like I’m really slow. But made it to the second chapter at least
  • I’m thinking that I shouldn’t simplify the language in the imagry, but I should simplify the structure

18/01/21 11:37 to 11:55, Fixing a bug in the simplewriter

18/01/21 13:15 to 15:00, At Lyle’s Crucible

The link is: http://bit.ly/cruciblemiro

Currently watching the vidoes

18/01/21 19:55 to 20:17, Looking at Google Search Console and creating a site map.

I’ve submitted the sitemap but will have to look into it later. Sitemap url is https://joereddington.github.io/sitemap.xml

18/01/21 20:38, Working on list gently

19/01/21 06:39, Emails.

  • Still getting the sitemap error

19/01/21 07:42, Big job for today is the fore applicaiton

19/01/21 09:44 to 11:42, Drafting an application to the fore +EQT

Next action is to:

  • Put the finance information in
  • Email the trustees

20/01/21 07:22 to 08:27, Working on the fore application +EQT

Sent the email - the numbers turned out to be a pain.

20/01/21 08:40, Okay, now what?

21/01/21 06:47 to 06:49, Distraction.

21/01/21 06:49, Processing Calendar.

21/01/21 07:01 to 07:30, Writing decent sized email to the media trust. +EQT

Then some faffing around in vim.

21/01/21 08:16,

I’m going to review the google doc from yesterday

21/01/21 08:22 to 08:40, Working on the Fake People Fake News +EQT

21/01/21 09:00 to 10:31, Meeting with fake news people +EQT

21/01/21 11:32 to 11:53, time for gratidute.

21/01/21 13:37 to 13:45, Writing my Nova routine.

22/01/21 13:45 to 14:28, Turning Mouse-Sniper into an app.

  • All details at today’s blog

22/01/21 14:28 to 14:45, Writing/pushing the blog

  • Also learned how to reference an internal blog

22/01/21 08:45, Working on the Fore Grant again. +EQT

  • This is a useful url: https://drive.google.com/drive/recent
  • I’ve processed the changes from my reviewer
  • Adding pictures.
  • Send to FB

25/01/21 07:47 to 07:59, Submitting the Fore grant files. +EQT

  • Trustee has reviewed, I understand we only have to submit.
  • Getting the link from email took ages, This would have been solved if I’d done a github issue properly.

25/01/21 07:15,

The next THING to do with Mousesniper is to get it to do drags. So I want a system where I store a click, and then hold it down.

Add a keybinding (I like times) that flipped a boolean and stored an x/y Change the click so that they check the boolean (and slowly move)

25/01/21 08:34 to 08:39, Doing some light email +EQT

25/01/21 09:10 to 09:42, Learning about vimdiff

What did I learn?

That using vimdiff in git with the command ‘git mergetool’ opens four windows, and the easiest way to process is to close the middle one and concentrate on getting the top two in sync.

If there is a time the top two aren’t in sync, check it with the bottom one .

Also, I’d really really like to be able to sort entires by time.

25/01/21 10:05 to 10:08, Checking sitemap on joereddington.github.com

There was a problem that the sitemap was only using ‘example.com’ generated urls. I’ve fixed it and put in a new version. It took six days to read the sitemap, so I’m going to put in a note to check next Tuesday

25/01/21 11:08 to 11:58, Meeting and updating tracking code +EQT

Nice chat and then spent some time adding conversion code to the website - I choose emails as a conversion metric, but I should probably have chosen ‘contact us’ as an option.

Later edit: conversion code did actually work

26/01/21 09:12 to 09:23, Checking sitemap

Hey! 48 found urls!
But they aren’t listed on coverage. Maybe best to wait some more.

26/01/21 09:23 to 09:40,

Having some small thinking about markdown images now that I know some vimscript.

Steps are:

  • Take the image
  • Copy the image to a local folder and insert the text.
  • Really what I want is an abrevation that let’s me grab a filetype

I asked a question on vim stack exchange, and the reply was broadly “no”, but pointed out some options in Jekyll

Vim issue was fixed later when tidying up.

26/01/21 09:44 to 10:08, Emails, including time playing with thunderbird.

  • Here’s the list of of shortcuts
  • The reason there was a problem with sending mail was that I hadn’t opened the ‘sent mail’ folder on gmail. I imagine it will work on my laptop again now.
    • Update, it’s going to be annoying syncing the settings between devices.

26/01/21 10:08 to 11:30, +EQT emails

I lost some content from yesterday, this is best guess for +EQT emails (I definitely had a break in the middle)

27/01/21 07:38 to 08:00, Been sorting out signitures FOR 20 MINUTES!

27/01/21 08:02 to 08:15, Personal Emails now.

27/01/21 08:15 to 09:17, +EQT emails now

A lot of that was on the Google Ads. And the rest of was writing follow up emails from the Crucible.

27/01/21 13:21 to 13:51, Tidying this file

…and checking sitemap

  • Checking Sitemap, we’ve gone up to 29 valid files. (but there are 38 posts so…)* Ah, it lists 20 files that have been discovered and are waiting to be indexed. That’s a start.
  • Also Reviewed the inserting of images into this file. I’ve updated the approach and I’m happy with it. Got it closer to 2 minutes, which still feels very long.

27/01/21 13:52 to 14:25, I want to think more about this inserting of images idea.

I think I’ve solved the ‘write markdown to insert the image’ problem, but I don’t believe I’ve fixed the ‘get file into the right place, ideally without a mouse’ problem.

This was interesting to build. I couldn’t get it to call the function I’d created (although I could get the function to run independently)

:command! -nargs=+ -complete=file Joe Insertimage(<f-args>) 

I think the most simple way will be to drag and use the abbreviation. Let it bed in.

27/01/21 14:28, In any case, I should probably do some light blogging.

28/01/21 05:46 to 05:56, faffing for 10 minutes

28/01/21 05:57 to 05:58, Time to look at the actions from last week. +EQT

Turns out I’m on top of that one.

Are we at ‘go public? I think we are…

28/01/21 06:08, New day,

Today I’m focusing on the todolist, and working top to bottom, while also segmenting the videos a bit with good descriptions.

I investigated this for the enhanced one: https://www.onlinedbschecks.co.uk/dbs-faqs/, but they outsource the check to me, which is hard in a lockdown. Looks like basic check it is.

28/01/21 06:48 to 07:21, (B) Review all projects in github +Overhead https://github.com/users/joereddington/projects/1#card-30279917

  • Would have been good if I had been copy pasting the done ones into the file.

06/02/21 10:04 to 10:37, Intergrating Watson into homepage

06/02/21 13:41 to 14:01, Intergrating Watson into homepage

  • First action is to learn about submodules
    • Commiting the main (super) project, says “The superproject is linked to the current commit of the subproject” so when updating, you pull the subproject, then commit the superproject.
    • It is possible to merge files back in and preserve history

    Git 2.23 (Q3 2019): if you want to clone and update the submodules to their latest revision:

    git clone –recurse-submodules –remote-submodules

    If you just want to clone them at their recorded SHA1:

    git clone –recurse-submodules

    git submodule init git submodule update

  • I checked watson online - there was nothing to push
  • I added the submodule to my homepage with the following command git submodule add -b dr_wat https://github.com/joereddington/watson/ diary/watson

  • I ran ./watson ../index.md and it failed.
  • I ran tests, they worked, I created a new one for index.md
  • As a distraction, I found out that I could make tag files with

    ctags *.py

  • I cut down the example, and wrote some simplifying test cases.
  • While simplifying I came accross another simple error - the Entry class didn’t check it was being passed a string. I fixed it, and created a test to check.
    • In the process, I learned the python for testing an exception is thrown.
  • Oddly, I couldn’t get the bug to trigger when I imported the code directly. Well that’s strange, it works fine when I don’t use get content…
  • I continued drilling down, I found some print statements that suggested I’d tried this before.
  • I tried altering the function, but other tests failed (this was the second time other tests had caught a problem), eventually I made the constructor ensure that there was always a valid for entry.end
  • I (finally) managed a sucessful rebase - by putting the reword at the top and the squashes below it.
  • After all that, the code is working as I hoped it already was.

06/02/21 15:06 to 15:23, Rewriting this document

08/02/21 06:33 to 07:11, Good morning +EQT

Nice guy, wants to write a book.

10/02/21 08:57 to 09:21, Back to the tidying of this file.

  • Looking into vim folding
    • I added a submodule, then had to remove it, then added a new one, but the removal went wrong somehow.

10/02/21 14:17 to 14:31, Tidying this file.

  • Okay this file is tidy, now to work out the stack

11/02/21 07:05 to 07:23, Getting started.

  • The file is tidy so emails
  • First problem is a build errror
    • When I try Junle serve I get “Could not find mini_portile2-2.5.0 in any of the sources”
    • I’m trying ‘bundle install’
    • Install was fine, now serve is hanging.
    • Okay, it turns out that it’s processing the watson file.
      • I’m looking up excluding files:https://idratherbewriting.com/documentation-theme-jekyll/mydoc_exluding_files.html
      • I’ve added an exclusion to the _config and now it’s building. Time for a push

        11/02/21 07:24, Got another page build error. Sigh.

  • Accoring to https://docs.github.com/en/github/working-with-github-pages/using-submodules-with-github-pages there are problems with submodules. Let me remove it and see what happens.
  • Removing the submodules. I found I had to run the commands: git submodule deinit diary/watson/ git rm diary/watson/

(which editing the .gitmodules file themselves, despite what SE says)

  • I’ve now pushed again.

    11/02/21 07:39, Sigh, page build erorr

  • Okay, that’s all I have time for, the next action is surely :roll back to the last working version.

12/02/21 07:28 to 08:07, Fixing joereddington.github.io

That was interesting.

  • It’s still unclear where the error was, I think it might have been a combination of a problem with a missing image in index.md and a seperate problem with the submodule I added.
  • I used the “git revert HEAD” command to ‘reverse’ the last commit (it appends an extra on on the end) and later I used the command “git revert X” to reverse only commit X. That was awesome.
  • In the end I created a new main branch with only the commits on it that I liked. That was fun.
  • I used the “git cherry-pick c096635” command, which let me grab a single commit from another branch and bang it on the end
  • I’d be willing to try the submodule again.

12/02/21 08:14 to 08:22,

  • I thought this was interesting: https://www.matuzo.at/blog/testing-with-tab/ in the context of keyboard only usage of websites.
    I’ve generally been faffing though. It’s really time for some good gratitude posting!

12/02/21 20:23 to 21:23, Switching to public

15/02/21 08:21 to 08:27, Tidying this file.

16/02/21 08:54 to 09:25, Sorted out a review system. It was silly.

  • It turns out that I haven’t effectively reviewed work emails for a long time

Paypal code is 7812

19/02/21 05:57 to 06:30, working on this file.

Which involved:

  • Deciding to write a blog post
    • Wanting to change the colours on an ssh
      • Downloading a new terminal app. Sigh.

28/01/21 07:40 to 08:53, (B) One hour simple writer on book https://github.com/joereddington/Projects-Public/issues/35 +PersonalProjects

  • I have reached the linked list chapter
  • Updating the pdf - I’ve reached page 49 of the text.
  • Let’s do another ten minutes.
  • Got as far as the presidents, nearly the end of the chapter.

28/01/21 20:10 to 21:01, More book

  • Okay, got as far as the knowledge. I think I’m halfway though, but there will be a lot more work in the later chapters.

29/01/21 07:10 to 08:13, More book

I’ve reached ‘you got to here with the indexes

29/01/21 08:17, Accounts section

  • 171 pages? That’s cool. I really though we’d drop 20 in this process. I’m up to 111 of this review as well (although I think there is a lot more work now)
  • Fixed an early bug
  • I’ve fixed the next table Now I need another one beause I have to do the major system THING
  • We’ll do the index when we come to that bit of the pdf

  • 29/01/21 smallest next step: generate the major system keywords for the accounts and keep writing

29/01/21 14:17 to 15:21, More book.

Started by dealing with the footnotes We’re accdientally 175 pages! Now to commit

29/01/21 19:39 to 20:18, Back again.

  • 29/01/21 smallest next step: Rewriting the Accounts example from the start.
  • Going to go through looking for caption/lable order problems
  • Also going through looking for undefined references
  • In future will need to sort citations.
  • Back to rewriting.

29/01/21 20:32 to 21:17,Book

  • I’m rewriting the accounts example
  • The class examples need two clear blank lines between them
  • Something has gone wrong with spelling :(
  • 29/01/21 smallest next step: do work on summary, need to make sure those bits are in the main chapter

30/01/21 12:53 to 13:24, Book. Working on summary

Working on the bullet point lines. I decided to go with all captials, all full stops (unless they are sentence fragments or word lists and to hell with the colon for the start (^.{12}\d\d:\d\d).*, is apparently the search I’m using but I think it’s

/\item.*[^.]$ to find all the lines without full stops.

30/01/21 14:56 to 15:41, Book again

  • Done the bullets
  • Completed classes entirely
  • Rewrote the start of Trees

We should note - there might be so much to rewrite from this point forward that it would be worth doing another simplewriter from the Trees Chapter onwards.

30/01/21 19:33, Back again

30/01/21 19:34, Oh wow - I wrote most of the tree chapter before the class chapter and it really shows. I’ve changed a lot of the terms and methods.

30/01/21 19:51, I think I need to build this example properly.

But it’s two people per node.

I need each of the people to be linked to a country, and be linked to another countiry.

30/01/21 20:01, Let’s do it myself.

Couples. No, film antagonists. I have them murder a character from a previosu film

France beat croatia \link Da Vinci Code, tom hanks is made of bagets and the monk is very proud of his cravat

31/01/21 13:04 to 14:29, I’m back. Let’s try this from the top.

  • Learning about Cntl-O in vim insert mode, it’s quite the key saver
  • Started a major rewrite, almost from scratch, of the first example in the tree chapter. I feel like I’m going to be here for a while.

I think I want a bit of a break, but what’s the next action.

Next action is start again with the wriing at line 2010. This one is a slog.

01/02/21 06:50,

Ten thousand facebook hits feels like a lot. A lot.

01/02/21 07:17 to 08:01, Delores

  • Now doing the notebooks and the reminders
  • Hey, found some urgent STUFF.
  • Now notebook, which was empty. Cool

01/02/21 08:12 to 11:34, today I’d like to do a ‘washington run through’ which means I touch every time before I stop at… 11:30.

  • Didn’t manage it, but did a really solid morning of ticking bits off. Lots got moved forward, lots got done, lots of STUFF got dumped.

12/02/21 20:38 to 21:23, Memory book.

It’s been almost two weeks since I worked on this. Going to have to probably start from the start of the tree chapter again

Just rewriting from the start

12/02/21 21:23,

This chapter is hard. Make it more honest: I don’t use this for family trees, and I suggest you don’t because I don’t know which of these are siblings, but I can make a point about balanced trees.

16/02/21 08:01 to 08:50, Email day!

16/02/21 08:54 to 09:25, Sorted out a review system. It was silly.

  • It turns out that I haven’t effectively reviewed work emails for a long time

    16/02/21 09:25 to 09:46, Personal Inbox Done

    16/02/21 09:46 to 10:57, working on +EQT inbox.

    16/02/21 15:27 to 17:00, Reading a paper and taking part in the group.

    I’ve written up my notes at ../_posts/2021-02-19-Paper-reading—Layers-of-Silence.markdown

19/02/21 05:13 to 05:28, Clearing out Personal Inbox

19/02/21 05:28 to 05:57, Now clearing out work inbox.

19/02/21 05:57 to 06:30, working on this file.

Which involved:

  • Deciding to write a blog post
    • Wanting to change the colours on an ssh
      • Downloading a new terminal app. Sigh.

19/02/21 08:22 to 08:55, Live working on memory book book.

I believe I’ve solved the first example.
I’m still missing a couple of good examples, particularly around sorting. I might do years.
Years of books? Create a tree with the years that fictional books are set in. What is the point? Simple to construct, relatively easy to write out a list of ‘nearby’ dates (split long books into several parts)

  • Disadvantaces (hard to search by film, hard to check something is already in (no it isn’t!)
  • Oh, means that you can keep adding questions.
  • Walking the path is good context.
  • Can include biographies, films, and some history books. Yes, I think this might be a goer.

I’ve done the big thinking. I want an example that is ‘years of historical fiction books’ I want an example that is ‘inventions arranged in a tree’ (subclasses still work)

That gives me two more examples for a:

  • Introduction example
  • Sorting example
    • Invention sorting example.
  • Decision Tree example

That’s probably enough.

19/02/21 10:19 to 10:27, Clearing up my git repos

  • You can use ‘git stash clear’ to clear stashes
  • I’ve also been setting upstreams and STUFFj k:w
  • Okay, the git is all nicely organised, that’s nice.

I would be nice to do some Mouse Sniper work. That starts by putting the mouse in the box and finding the first THING I have a problem with.

19/02/21 10:35 to 11:12, (E) Write a python script for ‘commands in this time window’

19/02/21 10:35, git clone http://github.com/joereddington/watson 19/02/21 10:58, pip3 install icalendar

  • Converted to python3
  • SE pointed out that I should read the .bash_history rather than the output of the history command.
  • Had the wrong branch for a while and tests were failing. This might be a nice way of doing this.

19/02/21 14:10 to 14:59, Working on the new watson

I’ve discovered the annoying fact that this WON’T work on public because I didn’t set up the history problems

20/02/21 16:14 to 16:26, Working on vim command history

21/02/21 06:38 to 07:12, I’m working on the vim command history

Commands of interest: 21/02/21 06:48, python3 command_list.py “## 21/02/21 06:37 to 07:32, Worki” 21/02/21 06:51, vim command_list.py

Actions:

  • I’ve updated the local vim to match master and added a missing plugin
  • I’ve added the ability to be called from the command line to python
  • I’ve run HISTTIMEFORMAT=”%d/%m/%y %T “ and that appeared to have had an effect on the laptop.
  • I’ve found out that history doesn’t include repeated commands
  • I used r !python3 git/watson/command_list.py “## 21/02/21 06:37 to 07:32, Worki” which worked from the command line.
  • I’ve found out that the “: is the expression register
  • I’ve written the lnc command which inserts the commands relabily, but it’s using hardcoded data (and currently whipes the clipboard.

21/02/21 07:13 to 07:21, Updating this file

  • Rewrote the notes
  • Added the register use to lnc
  • Commiting

28/02/21 07:31 to 08:26, Flowers for Turing site. +EQT

I was happy to find that I’d already made a site, also that some of the images weren’t on the wordpress site at all - they were linking to old images from my CS website- that would have been sad to lose.

I installed Jekyll from https://jekyllrb.com/docs/ - it gets easier every time.

I decided to make the existing content into blog posts. They are events that happen on a date. I moved over the 2013 post (which is probably the longest and most complicated) and the FAQ

Started using some cool commands to copy accross images

wget -i wget -qO- http://www.flowersforturing.equalitytime.co.uk/?page_id=3903 | sed -n '/<img/s/.*src="\([^"]*\)".*/\1/p' | awk '{gsub("thumb-350-", "");print}'

That one was quite cool, I’ll be using that again for the other pages.

It needs maybe another hour, two, to move accross the rest of the pages and so on. Then I ask for proofreadin.

01/03/21 07:30 to 08:15, Tidying this file.

So much faff, using tools that are actually meant to help.

01/03/21 08:15, Okay, MAYBE now we can get started?

No, running now. then coming back to fix other THINGs

The problem was that the plugin used to generate the pages isn’t gituhb friendly, so I’m building locally and pushing the site in the docs directory.

I fixed the issues with the pages and improved the css. There is more to do but I’m happy with it.

01/03/21 14:08 to 14:25, Start of stream again (D Google Ads Volunteer) 30 Write a supertitle landing page @eqt

So the problem with this is that a supertitle landing page means that the project page gets broken up.

There’s some other problems with the project page:

  • White Water Writers doesn’t have posts listed with it.
  • I think this boils down to ‘implement the issues raised by the google ad words people.

02/03/21 06:39 to 08:40, Processing personal email.

02/03/21 08:40 to 08:40, Doing a single +EQT email

  • Go through the invoices
    • Including fixing the paypal ones.
  • next action: make the bills and unity match
  • Review all the double authenticated payments

For the blog:

  • It’s nice to do everything monthly. Reconcile with the bank, put up all the payments, check (and chase) all the invoices.
  • We’ve now got a paypal account, which I’m nervous about because PayPal doens’t allow multiple approval, but it was the only way to take in bills.

02/03/21 21:26 to 21:29, Process tweetdeck

03/03/21 05:52 to 07:04, Dealing with the accounts

  • The invoices are broadly in order
  • Traced various payments right through the system. It was quite fun. Although I did have to look in Quickbooks, unity, Dropbox, Google Drive and Gmail.

03/03/21 07:15 to 07:18, Processing Tweet deck

Tweetdeck turns out to NOT take very long

03/03/21 07:18 to 08:11, ready for the first proper facebook process.

Almost an hour? Wow - That was: 1 post in main 1 post in vegan 1 post in Charity CEos A review of the vegan group A review of the charity group Replying to all the comments Working through the feed -

  • I Didn’t even do posts for the WWW and EQT pages

That’s certainly a more thorough way of doing it, and I probably got more out of it. And it’s probably more time-efficient if I don’t look again. But Wow.

05/03/21 07:13, Rewriting this file

I should ask myself how many monthly visitors is worth me learning how Google Analytics works. A hundred a month?

Well, I’m getting 100 a day. So that’s quite a lot, but I’m looking at the THINGs we’re spending our google ad money on and it’s hardly the right targeting

I mean, I really want it the other way around - I want to get, say, 10 emails a week, and have the conversation work.

05/03/21 07:29, A 100 a day is enough. I’ll need to get my analytics perfect.

05/03/21 07:31, Okay, I really would have liked to have written a blog so that I felt like I’d had a really good morning. But that can wait for today.

  • I like that I can now make links a lot more trackable with the URL builder https://ga-dev-tools.appspot.com/campaign-url-builder/
  • I know a bit more about my own webpages - suprised by some THINGs.
    • My personal blog has a massive bounce rate. Massive.
  • I have big plans to test a lot of this STUFF in anger on the FFT website
  • I think the next step is really that I do some work on the websites themselfs:
    • Adding calls to action and clear paths through on landing pages and popular ones.
    • Fix the mobile usability on the EQT site
    • OVF is getting traffic oganically quite well, we should look into why and why
  • But there are direct analytics things to build
    • Make sure that outbound links are tracked on the EQT website
    • Set up a funnel for the OVF site to show how effective it is being. (including how many of them are sucessful)

Got a certificate https://analytics.google.com/analytics/academy/certificate/LO54niEeTgqoX1Asax0ARA

    09/03/21 17:00, All the images are saved in the 2014 folder and I’ve created the post - I only need to put the page through the converter

09/03/21 19:45 to 20:33, More on Turing Site +EQT

  • The text is in, now for the photos, although I want to really get the hang of the sizing
  • I’m sizing solely by html

Okay, I’ve added, and commited, and I’ve got a bunch more posts to move accross. I’m a bit suprised to find out that the general level of quality of the site is very poor. There are missing receipts and missing thank you and a wide range of other errors. Very poor.

Okay, it should be relatively simple to move the rest of the pages over. Some are very small indeed.

It was only 15 mintues to move the 2015 page, and probably could have been much faster. 2016 will be quite long, 2017 will be near trivial

Lots of things to do once I’ve moved the posts over:

  • Set up the paypal pool
  • Set up the google analytics
  • Rewrite the site to have a clear funnel
    • What we do
    • What happens to the money
    • The order form/form if you’d like some news
  • Throw all the google ads money at it.

10/03/21 07:30 to 08:12, +EQT web work

  • Updated a theme for EQT site
  • Ordered a backup from dreamhost
  • editing the trustee page
  • Fixed the Flowers for Turing upload issue

##TODOs

  • Get a mobile theme for eQuality Time site
  • Put self on the staff page

FFT

  • Test theme on mobile
  • Fix all the images
  • Transport the rest of the pages
  • Add GA code
  • Ask for design input
  • Work out what you want from a funnel
  • So I’m looking at https://www.gosh.org/donate-our-appeal/ - and one THING that’s clear there is that donation is a seperate page. Click to donate, and then, ‘how much would you like to donate?’ and then gift aid
  • Oh, hey, we have a proper pay pal THING now, we can accept money in any amount…

10/03/21 08:26 to 08:41, Okay social time.

  • Also the streaming.
  • Also the inbox

£200 is a start

11/03/21 06:28 to 07:38, Attempting to reduce bounce rate on personal site

I’m going to take a moment to work on my personal site I want to reduce bounce rate. Which is currently… 79.87% over 30 days

The big landing pages and their bounce rates are.

  • Homepage 68%
  • Disability on facebook 74%
  • diswiki 76%
  • Animaated pdfs 90%

Two of those are on the old site and badly need a full rewrite, so I’ll create a task for them, and put calls to action in the others.

In an effort to track outbound links I also discovered that some sites already do (joereddington.com) but some don’t (eqt, which I think I’ve fixed, and joereddington.github.io, which I hope I’ve fixed but only for one link)

I spent some time finding out about google tag manager, which it turns out I don’t need. I also discovered there are a bunch of different ‘versions’ of google analytics and I am unhelpfully using a mix across sites

11/03/21 07:38, Big THINGs for the day

15/03/21 05:44 to 08:45, Putting todos in order.

As an exercise, I tried to do something useful to all 90 tasks on my todo list within three hours. I just made it.

After three hours there are 33 left. Mostly this is me taking out ones that have already been done, or needed rewriting, some of it is me sorting out very quick tasks and moving forward on them. Certainly there was a lot of doing ‘small tasks that I’ve been avoiding’ and I feel good about that.

The remaining tasks are all ones where I definately know the next action and I’m pleased to think that I can do them.

Something that became quite obvious as I went through: I’m really negleting a project-level view, and that’s not ideal at all. I’d like to be much more there

03/06/21 13:50 to 15:56, lots of home work.

  • Lots of garage, greasing nova’s door, cutting the new grill, fixing the side gate, setting up the teapot server, tidying up. Ordering stairgates. The whole shebag, reviewing notes, playing with browsers. Good STUFF.

07/06/21 11:32 to 15:30, +EQT working on the Open Voice Factory

  • Found that both the greek version and the vannila version get the same error.
  • Reminded myself that the code isn’t properly under version control (turns out I was wrong)
  • Reminded myself that the website is also NOT properly under version control.

While attempting to tidy up I got the error:

“fatal: could not create work tree dir ‘temp’: Disk quota exceeded”

so I deleted like 26 gigs of stuff. Unhelpfully that included the actual code.

  • Yak Shaving:
    • Applied for the microsoft non-profits work
    • Fixed the company number on the file.
  • While clearing space I accidentally deleted the code.
    • There is okay code in the repo, but it’s missing some updates (particularly hooking into the ovfplayer
    • Main one was reconnecting the ovfplayer code to the main system, which I did.
    • Even with the old code, the greek still doesn’t work
    • Took the opportunity to keep the code and the designs in separate folders and made some commits on that basis. * Cleaned up the designs folder more afterwards
    • Rewrote upload.php which the idea that it might take a CSS file
      • Found out that the CSS file I wanted wasn’t any good. (replaced it with one from WWW)
  • Found that there is a live version of the OVF site on github pages: http://equalitytime.github.io/TheOpenVoiceFactory/upload_board.html and attempted to get that working.
    • Used a couple of rounds of opendiff to compare with the server one.
    • Deleted the old site.
    • Lots of potential projects with the analytics now.
  • Moved on to the bug
    • Found out I can’t run localcreate at testing.* (eventually solved this by moving to python3

      ImportError: No module named lxml

    • Ran it on local machine
    • Got the classic error that we expected: UnicodeEncodeError: ‘ascii’ codec can’t encode characters in position 0-3: ordinal not in range(128)
    • Wrote up the notes.
    • Did some print statements (probably should be using a debugger by now (was doing this much more properly by the end of the bug)
    • Watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOb7OUM0OGU in the hope that it will help.
    • Did lots of googling decode and encode. I think I’ve got it.

07/06/21 16:15 to 16:36, Back and doing the processsing +EQT

  • Looking at the unicode issue
    • Wow, we don’t use ‘decode’ anywhere in the text.
    • The encodes appear to be used in the right places.
    • I’ve fixed the existing bug by putting a ‘u’ in the right place. That was good. That was from the vide.
    • Decided to write some proper tests of the language.
  • Another error: ‘toppage’ is hardcoded (this turned out to have been fixed in a parrelle commit, and then needed fixing again later)

07/06/21 19:44 to 21:11, Back to it +EQT

  • discovered that ‘master’ is the wrong branch:

    This branch is 4 commits ahead, 9 commits behind production.

    • I’ve reviewed, and, other than some tweaks I’ve replicated. This is the only one that matters. https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/commit/e80123869ea1a909d668e6bdba935e9007292a92. Right now I’ve got to concentrate on getting this working, and then doing the ‘from scratch’ version.
  • Unicode
    • I’ve got a file with some tests for encode/decode. I certainly understand it more. But NOT completely.
    • The main problem is that I’m converting filenames to ascii so I’ve got 100 greek filenames that convert to “”
    • I wrote a test to show I could write a file with a unicode name
    • So I’ve taken the encodes out… You get some fucking great names of boards.
  • Two debugging tricks in Python:
    • Adding -i (so python -i) drops you in the interpreter when the programm terminates
    • Adding the following code drops you into the interpret when you want import code code.interact(local=locals())
      • Pressing control-d runs the script again. That’s cool
      • From https://code-maven.com/switch-to-interactive-mode-from-python-script

08/06/21 06:31 to 07:41, Code again +EQT

  • Everything now writes in unicode
    • I found a way of getting the test to work by using a different library
    • The manifest is now writing much more nicely, but NOT entirely.
    • I’ve found a way (using https://stackoverflow.com/questions/18337407/saving-utf-8-texts-with-json-dumps-as-utf8-not-as-u-escape-sequence) to get the json to dump unicode

Everything appears to be running. Let’s test it… * Ha! The code isn’t being run on the server * Turns out that this was hidden because (due to the recovery yesterday) I’m NOT using the times as the scramble * The issue is the config - python wants the lxml library and I can’t work out how to install it.

08/06/21 07:41 to 10:39, Converting it to python3 and deploying . +EQT

There’s an issue with Dreamhost config- we can’t install a particular library for 2.7. Also, we’re starting to really suffer from the fact that this is writen in 2.7, which is pretty old and it’s hard to google for things. So I’m taking a break to see how easy it is to upgrade. It turns out it was relatively simple but we have an issue with col row.

  • Converting to python 3
    • Used 2to3 -w to start with
    • Had to convert a bunch of pixel sizes to ints (which is fair)
    • Had an issue with x and y’s being too large so added an exception and a warning
    • It ran quite quickly
    • But 7 tests failing.
    • I checked out if python2.7 was failing the tests as well because I hadn’t checked them since the unicode changes.
      • No, only failing two of them - arabic and slovakain.
    • First test to look at is the colour one, looks a lot like the col and row issue is to blamej
    • I built a massive test by outputting the funciton results in 2.7 and copied it over.
    • Ended up being really hacky and using // as the operator rather than properly rebuilding the method (it works though)
  • I’ve pushed it to server.
    • Now getting can’t find pptx.
      • I literally JUST copied the files
    • It runs!
    • Okay moment of truth, lets try it online.
    • Not working. Not telling us why NOT working either. Just NOT working.
  • So, now the problem is “Getting the error messages working again.
    • Did it: needs tidying
  • Okay, so now I’ve ended up with a problem in the obz. The ovfplayer isn’t accepting the toppage address.
    • Issue was a typo in the manifest.
  • It works, I’ve emailed people. Pushed a commit.

The White Water Writers website now has reasonable analytics and it’s getting some hits from Google Ads. But those hits are not converting, partly they are aimed badly.

All of the adds need to be aimed at the homepage, and then a funnel will take them through to the contact us page.

  • To do this right, I need to properly understand the ads. Then I need to rebuild the site with a funnel and some A/B testing.

29/07/21 09:28 to 12:09, going live on the arts council work. +EQT

  • Writing up to start with.

  • Started working on the finance section because I thought it would be easier

    • It’s difficult, because I have to go through the budget in detail and add a lot more information, including three quotes from everybody.
    • I’ve done the management question, but now I do the proper budget
    • I did some reading around and found that there were more prompts available https://www.artscouncil.org.uk/sites/default/files/download-file/Unsuccessful_GFTA_applications_over_15000_Oct_2016.pdf
    • I considered taking the contingency for unexpected costs out of the budget but decided against it as nobody had complained.
    • The management question is done, but long, it will get cut down in simplewriter.
    • Need to be sending this to reviewer at 3pm.
    • Looked properly at the things that the reviewers say that look at and it’s a really mixed bag so I have to put everything in.
    • Did an experiment - it turns out the description in the budget table can take at least 2000 characters, which means that’s where I’ve got to fully describe what is happening in really solid detail
    • Finding multiple quotes for venue hire and things

29/07/21 12:09 to 12:38, Going to go for a break to make Kat lunch.

20/09/21 10:45 to 12:11, Starting again +EQT

  • At ‘clear stack’
  • Updated delores
  • Made seiten while office cleaned
  • Cleared stack
  • Moved THINGs to *.todo.txt
  • Processed this file.

20/09/21 12:56 to 13:05, Working out plans for the week +EQT

  • Open Voice Factory including ads?
  • Emailing all the schools? All of them?
  • The project real follow up?
  • The Scotland Grant

I think the Open Voice Factory would be nice. Get the ads working as well. I’ve got some impetus.

20/09/21 13:29 to 13:59, Lunch

20/09/21 13:59 to 15:10, meeting and reviewing document for Yvonne +EQT

21/09/21 06:48 to 07:28, Working on https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/issues/136 +EQT

I’m having an OVF day.

  • Created an issue from the email
  • Create a test file and documented it more nicely in the issue - along with links and so on.
  • Checked in with https://www.openboardformat.org/docs It looks like the first part of the problem (the display bit) is as simple as using ‘vocalisation’ rather than label.

21/09/21 07:29 to 07:54, OVF regression tests +EQT late:https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/issues/136

Before properly working on the bug I’d like to take the opportunity to fix the regression tests.

  • Currently 4 tests are failing and 1 has an error. The error definitely needs to be fixed.
  • Took a long time to fix test_create_obf_object but it’s fine.
  • Decided it would be good to have a script that generated the regressions, and then found that some genius had already written one.

21/09/21 08:00 to 09:50, Children and school run

21/09/21 09:51 to 12:13, Regression tests +EQT late:https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/issues/136

  • I upgraded generate_regressions.py to python3 and fixed a bug
  • The failing arabic test was a real bug from upgrading the main code to python 3 - turns out you CAN’T implicity cast exceptions to string any more.
  • I’ve updated the regressions and carefully committed THINGs
  • I’ve upgraded generate regressions again so that it works for both directories. (there were two files)
  • I’ve put all the testing files in the tests directly, and improved some of the rest of the structure.
  • After a lot of effort we now run tests with

python3 -m unittest

  • Learned about and implemented subtests

21/09/21 12:13 to 13:06, let’s lok at ovfplayer +EQT late:https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/issues/136

Small diversion looking at ovfplayer

  • Checked that I could run it with the commands
    • ng serve
    • but only after npm install
    • Discovered how to use the assets folder to serve a file
    • (later) discovered how to access that file from the ovfplayer instance, so I can now develop entirely offline.

21/09/21 13:06 to 14:58, https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/issues/136 Back on the main bug +EQT

  • I’ve made some changes
  • Did some unrelated refactoring (to make testing easier, but didn’t write tests)
  • Discovered that I CAN’T run tests on server because the init.py files
  • Wrote response to bug reporter and shared with developers.

Not much in there actually…

  • Did a quickbooks bill

21/09/21 20:10 to 20:38, Playing with calorie tracker

Okay, so what’s the advantage of command line?

  • Don’t need phone
  • Encourages simplicity - no carbs
  • Just a list.
  • Easy entry.
  • Computer is where I do a reasonable amount of my eating
  • Lists over a week.
  • Copy-paste for repeated meals.
  • Can do while working.

Let’s give it a go. Tracking is going to be useful. It will be a bit tricky at weekends, but even if it’s only tracking on weekdays, it’s pretty good.

22/09/21 06:46 to 07:29, Good morning +EQT email.

  • Bought myself a python books
  • Clearing out email
  • This file is becoming quite difficult.

22/09/21 14:10 to 14:46, Delores again +EQT

  • Find out big thing for week.
  • It looks like the Scotish Arts funding doesn’t it?
  • Sorted out bike stuff.

24/09/21 05:07 to 06:08, Let’s look at that bug. +EQT late:https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/issues/136

  • Don’t know how to test for it but let’s have a look.
  • I mean, one problem is that we export the images as a side effect…
  • Moved that, got 6 errors(!)
  • crap, it’s because you have to label the images first
  • Okay, so an easy way to do this is fine the damn image
    • Done. Now let’s look at the code
  • Reversing it made a tiny difference, but hardly proper.
  • Um, I think I did it, even if I don’t understand the code… t

  • I did some more refactoring, but it’s hardly amazing stuff.
  • Running tests and getting ready to push
  • Oh wow, closed issue with commit message!
  • And it’s live! Testing now.

28/09/21 10:34 to 10:49, Putting delores online.

  • It’s now online at https://joereddington.github.io/Delores/ I’ve also learned a lot about the Vex command and improved some vim stuff.

28/09/21 10:49 to 12:39, Following delores +EQT

  • Mostly overhead stuff.
  • Delores is diagnosing some errors with my workflow:
    • process calendar wasn’t in there at all.
    • There is a big problem with the stack having low prioirty items on it.
      • Such as the jekyll export, which I’ve happily now fixed but…
  • Now processing this damn file.

28/09/21 12:39 to 13:13, Following delores

      • A bigger inbox and a regular action to empty it.
    • I did some processing of the gargage. Increased the amount of order. Have sent some questions to Kat. Will go back in tomorrow MAYBE ? Update: went in tomorrow. Did more, looking steadily better

28/09/21 13:16, (A) 15 search email for all pptx files again and put them in the regressions file. on: https://github.com/eQualityTime/Public/issues/132 +EQT 2021-08-27

Found three of them in the branches of communikate - I forgot I did that. And it’s a better place for them to be really. But I’m putting them in the regression tests because I want some more regression tests and I want them in the same place.

28/09/21 13:37 to 14:24, Press release? +EQT late:https://github.com/eQualityTime/Public/issues/124

I’m failing at this, how would I write it for reddit.

We hired influencers to help teenagers make resources about fake profiles on social media and they’ve had great results.

Three groups of students in different schools interviewed a set of influencers on private zoom calls and used that content as the basis for creating resources for other students.

Those resources were given to the rest of the schools and, when we tested everybody, we found that their ability to critically evaluate the content they see on the internet went up improved nicely.

It boils down to “Teenagers are probably not going to listen to parents or teachers about social media, so let’s meet them where they are because they are going to listen to influencers”. There’s lots of nice comments on <a href=http://www.projectreal.co.uk/>projectreal.co.uk</a>.

29/09/21 07:28 to 07:54, +EQT processing

  • Open on public.

29/09/21 13:28 to 13:42, (A) read https://www.gov.uk/guidance/safeguarding-duties-for-charity-trustees 2021-09-20

  • Notably, you always review safeguarding policy after a serious incident.
  • I’m unclear if our policy properly lays out how we would handle an safeguarding issue, other than ‘deal with it sensitively.’
  • “Have clear policies on bullying and harassment, and whistleblowing”, um, we don’t have those, but we don’t really have enough staff at this point.
  • Notably, we don’t do due dilligence with people, because we assume that our clients (schools, univerisities, prisions) have need of much more rigorous standards than we require, but we don’t officially say that
  • “All charities must prevent abuse for extremist purposes.”, “must be part of your charity’s risk assessments, policies and procedures.” We need an anti terror strategy?

  • Unless it becomes part of the driver package.

  • And how to build in the contact lists
    • Like a database?
    • Books that go to schools, schools that go to staff?
    • Just an interested parties list really.
    • Maybe that’s what I’m building, an interested parties list. Maybe we do it the other way around.

02/10/21 07:45 to 08:49, Good morning! Memory book time

Done, result. Just the TTS to do now and the other proofreaders.

05/10/21 06:00 to 07:21, Following up on KeyError +EQT late:https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/issues/138

I’ve returned to the error I was investigating on Friday.

  • I’ve got an MCVE, but I should really test it on the latest version of the library.
    • Upgrading the library (from 0.6.18 to 0.6.21) might cause problems
    • I updated python-pptx with pip3 install –upgrade python-pptx
    • All tests pass
    • Will have to look into updating it online
    • Submitted the issue here: https://github.com/scanny/python-pptx/issues/749

05/10/21 13:02 to 14:41, Tidying up and pushing and updating OVF site +EQT https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/

  • My changes broke the regression tests.

  • I’ve commented out the other test that was failing because it relates to a abandoned feature
  • Checked the changes to the pageset online
  • This git merge –squash (::git) turned out to be a really good way of making a faffy commit structure look much nicer. I like it and I want to use it again.
  • Updated the OVF site with the changes

  • Ha! Going live - so much of the work I did today would have been great for it.
  • The last couple of days have been brilliant for putting hours in, but they haven’t really focused on anything in my long term plans have they?
  • Reviewing previous dates - I think that the automatic timesheet update has made this a bit better, but I should update that.
    • Some small updates to the annual leave calculator

05/10/21 15:50 to 16:23, (A) Check actions from last meeting +EQT

…and writing up a starting point.

What is a volunteer and what isn’t.

We define a volunteer in terms of responsibility and access. A bystander who helps us arrange tables before an event isn’t a volunteer, nor is someone who contributes to our open source projects. However someone who arranges the flowers for Flowers For Turing, or runs a white water writers camp certainly is. The difference in these cases is that the volunteer has been given some level of responsibility (which could be physical, financial or relate to information) - specifically someone is an eQuality Time Volunteer if we delegate some of the organisations own responsibility to them.

05/10/21 18:21 to 18:28, Personal look at delores

06/10/21 14:15 to 14:32, I’ve been writing up the VA THING +EQT

But I’m starting to think about doing this automatically.

I’ve got a set of folders. I want a loop that goes through the folders and pulls down every single info file. And then for every file it names it with the slug and extracts the title and the name of school.

That sounds like it would take me an hour and remove a lot of work for the VA. (later: three hours at least)

12/10/21 14:34 to 15:28, Let’s do some relaxing refactoring +EQT https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/

  • After a lot of faff it became clear this was about the tests
  • Created a seperate branch to try and create OBZ tests

12/10/21 15:28 to 15:36, New branch +EQT https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/

I’ve realised that I need to do refactoring to get the tests to work!

  • Here’s the problem - my write_to_obf file expects three different subfolders, and the paths are really inconsistent about what writes to where.
    • Sometimes ‘data’ is part of the path
    • Images are in a different directory

12/10/21 19:07 to 19:39, Back to code +EQT https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/

Starting by putting generated icons in images rather than icons. Ended up with an issue about images appearing at all Used ng serve in anger for the first time

12/10/21 20:00 to 20:57, Had a meeting +EQT

13/10/21 06:27 to 07:59, Right let’s get back to that code +EQT https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/

  • I want to do a big overhaul of the code, but I don’t want to break anything
  • I have regression tests, but only for the json output - not the obz, and the obz is a big part of this.
  • SE recommends that I hash the obz files and compare, but that’s going to take ages. However, it’s also a good start
    • I can add more complex testing once this is done.
  • However, to produce decent hashing, I have to refactor! because the code requires a silly and complex file structure to exist.
  • So I’m very carefully doing the first refactor to allow regression tests for a proper refacor
    • Changed ‘icons’ to ‘images’ so everything was in the right directory’
    • Made sure that the directory was only hardcoded in one place.
    • Created a hash file function

13/10/21 09:42 to 10:31, Hello +EQT https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/

  • Found a genuine annoying bug about commas in special commands
    • The issue is that one can have place(“, this”) but my code things that’s a subcommand, sigh.
    • I should write a proper test - it’s the right thing to do and would a fuckton faster
    • Once I started writing tests I found a bunch of edge cases I never coded for. so now six tests don’t work.
    • Okay we are on regressiontestsinobf and we would like to merge only bff2fe1ac4790d7026eb28ce85a08a4d490eaee7 (and for the hell of it, 7652c849a315f8a6bd9f4cec9d77c0b140db6288 )
    • Oh wow! It worked a lot better when I chose the right commits!

13/10/21 10:31 to 11:28, Yet another new branch +EQT https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/

Now we’ve written the tests, we open yet another branch (from main) to fix them.

  • Fixed some tests with basic changes.
  • Tried csv for a while until I realised that csv wants the quote directly after the delimiater),
  • we know the delimiter will be “)\s,” so I put it in a regualar expression
  • Merged (with squash, because I got careless) into master, all tests passing
  • Then patched into the current branch - and as the interent warned me, some of the cherry picked branches appear more than once…

13/10/21 11:29 to 12:29, back to the obf regression +EQT https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/

  • Yeah, this is a screwed up log file
  • Failing 10 tests, but that means that the process command ones are owrking
  • Running generate regressions again. (I stopped earlier because of the process coammands bug)
  • I can generate them
  • I’m now running a test to test them, but I think it’s slow.
    • Taking 30 seconds to run fail first one. :( probably ended up as a five minute test suite. That’s definitely too long
  • Er, I’m getting a different hash every time…
    • Is it because of the ordering? No - it’s always the same first file… o
  • let’s try something else - there’s 411 boards in the damn folder now. So why not work through them.
  • Find the files and compare the json
    • Trying that now…
    • Making an alteration to see if ther is a fail.
    • There was a fail - but it was two minutes for two files!
    • Damnit - it’s NOT going to work! The files are over the top of each other!
      • Like, it will work with exactly one pptx

13/10/21 12:29 to 13:31, back to the drawing board. +EQT https://github.com/eQualityTime/TheOpenVoiceFactory/

What’s the best way of doing this?

  • Get generate to write the output to invidivual directories.
  • Tests take 247/259 seconds - that’s far too long but it’s what I have
  • I’ve added to the main approach and I’ve rebased so that the history is reasonably clean.

I should remember that I’ve made a fair amount of progress in this sprint

  • Localcreate is better
  • Handling of special commands is better
  • internal handling of Where Files Are is better
  • Regression tests exist

However, I now need a break - overall I don’t think I’ll be continuing with the interupted refactoring branch - it will be easier to rerefactor (and add proper tests as THINGs arrive) from here.

  • Wow - it was 40 minutes to simply copy accross all the questions! How many are there?
    • There are 46 individual questions to write up. That’s incredible.
    • Like, that’s 10,000 words of answers to come up with.

Do we think I could do it in a day? With this new approach?

Currently I have 3,700 words, and I think we might be copy pasting some others.

  • Another 15 minutes and I found I was getting into it.

14/10/21 06:39 to 07:57, +EQT working on https://github.com/equalitytime/public/issues/100

  • One annoyance is that when split questions I have to go back to the original document and split there. There’s probably a better way to do that
    Later: It was a little confusion putting the texts in, but I imagine will get better. (Hopefully)
  • I want to update the css - it looks fugly

  • Got to a strange point and I wnat to see how it looks in the text.

  • Adding content still… need to put a lock on that.
  • Although it also added an extra two pages so…
  • Got as far as the classes example, which suggests I’m halfway though. It’s going quite well.
  • Taking a small break to sort out margins
    • Evening them up added four pages?

I’ve gone through and found all the main teacher contact details I can.

  • What next?
    • Rebuild the database to take account of the multiple teacher contacts for some books (and to get their data out of the spreadsheet)
    • Split the teachers names into first and second (in their own sheet)
    • Write the script for normal teachers.
    • Fixed the git push and thus the annual leave calculations +EQT
    • Didn’t do it in a particularly deloresy way, but didn’t need to - I should work out that distinction a bit better.

08/11/21 21:00 to 21:28, Tidying up this file +EQT

So, what do we know about Delores?

  • It Went quite well.
    • Would have been good to remember the ‘all work is emotional’
    • Would have been great to do the kitchen tidying, food, and morning approaches
    • Made a really nice dent into the main projects. Did important things
      • There’s something to be said for ‘really’ big problems right? Like, MAYBE Delores should be divided by the size of project:

<2 JUST do =20 quick note about what I’m doing =60 Notes on commands and websites used for later

120 Blog post and detailed readme file. Closing issues, that sort of thing.

The eight hour days have made me much more interested in attacking the really really big projects.

  • Arguably - one should just start and set a timer (or pay attention to a log - if you go over an hour on a single sitting of the project, you then rewrite the issue (or write the issue) and start again. When you reach three hours, then you write the blog post.

  • To be fair. The loss of time today was about phone calls, Nova, and other childcare. I was pretty on it. Delores helps me a) clear our lots of little bits on reminders and b) concentrate on important tasks for a while.

There are actually only for (C) tasks left, but two of them are ‘half-days’ and the other two are probably an hour long. After that I suspect I’d make a lot of mess of the (D) tasks. Hmmm.

Let’s say that I (found the mouse) and created the teacher spreadsheet in half an hour and then the code in an hour and then another hour in sending the emails. That’s doable before the kids get up right? Then I get to play with the server all day right?

  • It’s going to be an AWS day

So what’s the first page I want to server on the AWS?

None of the github ones.

  • Which suggests I want a script.
  • The ones that definately have to be there evenautlla are:
    • WWW
      • Watchtower
      • Oracle
    • OVF
    • Supertitle

And everything else arrives on github happily.

But If I’m doing web, then I should definitely start by sprucing up the three websites that are already efficient.

  • Sorting out the GA, funnel and Award on the Open Voice Factory
  • A/B Testing on the Project Real site
  • Review of the White Water Writers site

So these:

(E) Upgrade OVF to GA4 on: https://github.com/eQualityTime/Public/issues/119 +EQT XX (E) 10 Add the Nominet prize to the OVF website XX (D) A/B test on the Project Real site on: https://github.com/eQualityTime/Public/issues/120 +EQT XX (D Truestees) Write more Ads for OVF XX

sudo yum install -y nginx php-fpm works for the php but NOT the nginx?

  • AWS: sort out priorities.

What do I want most?

  • Be off dreamhost
  • Etherpad working
  • WWW working
  • OVF moved

It’s pretty obvious to me that the key thing is to move OVF. Both the main code and the designs. I don’t think I need to move the site at this point, but IDK.

Once the OVF site is moved, I think I can close dreamhost entirely.

There’s some writing up to do for WWW I think. and indeed some reading.

  • You’d really think that ‘allbooksever’ would be a good way of working out the invoices…
    • It’s NOT though, because we don’t have a great way of saying which books happened.

15/12/21 11:17 to 12:29, Working on automatic notes from history +EQT

I’ve been working on my history input.

The main public one wasn’t working, It’s still not working. It needs to be more fully deployed as a github page. I put the first parts of it together at https://joereddington.github.io/export-history/, which is a win.

Seperately I improved the import to this file via ‘lnh’ - that was cool. I added a blacklists as well as whitelist (lnh is blacklist, public is whitelist).

When reviewing it became clear how rarely I am fully present in the work, how much room there is to grow, and how often I turn to the internet rather than simply thinking, solving the problem on my own, and reading man pages and help files, my books and notes.

  • To improve the ‘landing page experience’ for my White Water Writers ads I have
    • Reduced the size of the main image on the site
    • Checked the page load speeds in Google Analytics - it appears only the main page is particularly slow (which is odd, because you’d think the portfolio would take a while….)
      • Discovered that the OVF site takes about ten seconds for the main page though…
    • pulled on server - had to sudo su first.
  • For Flowers For turing
    • Reduced the size of the main image for page loading.
    • Reinstalled all the files to get the damn thing to run.
  • I think there might be a problem with me trying to improve volume so much - in that it’s volume that follows from quality rather than the other way around.

    17/01/22 15:08 to 16:06,Rewriting WWW site +EQT

    I started with the idea that I’d do it all in the code. But actually this would be a really nice chance to, work it on the A/B testing. Or NOT right? Just do it in the site, let’s NOT get fancy.

17/01/22 16:06 to 16:08, Okay, so can we get it to fucking build? +EQT

Okay, so the Jekyll building issue has been annoying me on, like, four different platforms at the moment. I can’t install, I can’t do anything. Go to do some reading.

17/01/22 16:16 to 16:41, Should I JUST start doing 20 or so programs in ruby? +EQT

Solved the first two, that’s bound to be a reasonable start

17/01/22 16:46 to 16:49, summary +EQT

  • Successfully changed the url from ‘etherpad’ to ‘imps’
  • Trying to adjust the etherpad options
    • My process is to use the ‘etherpad’ useraccount over ssh and then run sudo systemctl restart etherpad.service from the main account to see if it works.
    • Changing the docker settings didn’t work out.
    • Changing the settings.json also hasn’t had much affect.
    • Changing en in locale settings was effective - but that appears to mostly be the names of menus (obviously - it’s localisation)
    • The default etherpad skin is Colibris, which is the one I’ll be for the icon I think
    • I removed the icons directly in settings.json and made a change to see if the locale.en was a factor
    • The locale.en worked but NOT the removal of the buttons grrr.
    • Threw the pad options into settings.json in case that worked.
    • Getting worried i broke it around 16:27
    • Made a change to the json and restarted at 16:36

  • Turns out you don’t want to push settings changes because they have passowrds nad stuff in. Possibly that’s why they go in the locales?

It would be great if the Mail merge code exported a ‘follow up’ grid when it ran.

Three things to do and I think I can definitely do them.

I really love that I can look back over the list and be like “Yes, yes, I did do all of those in that order, that was brilliant”

04/02/22 13:57 to 14:10, Writing this blog: https://equalitytime.co.uk/6600/2022/02/04/fail/ +EQT

04/02/22 14:10 to 14:21, (E) File the documents in the inbox. +EQT

Done! We are done! Whole list.

04/02/22 14:21 to 15:17, Working on Delores +EQT

  • Highlighting is now on every page
  • In general, I feel like Delores should have more lines on fewer pages, and possibly only a new page if there is a threashold size of process >20
  • Thinking about it. The idea is that we ‘do Delores until we find we want to stray from it’ and then rebuild or reassure’.
  • At the moment the tendency is for me to start ignoring it once we move onto the list, which is fair enough because there is a transition between getting set up and getting stuck in.
    • But, part of the point of delores is ‘how do we do this perfectly?’ how do we make sure that:
      • that projects are really properly broken down,
      • next actions list is genuinely in the right order.
      • That code is properly reviewed and committed.
      • That I really do work from the top to the bottom and grind though to a point where I am waiting on other people.
    • However, let’s NOT forget that in the last few months I’ve made great, near amazing strides forward:
      • Eight hour days are normal.
      • I’ve zeroed the next actions list four weeks running (twice this week)
  • In general the big things to improve on Delores (and by extension, life) are:
    • None work days: running, kitchen cleaning, housework, night time
    • Emails better (in terms of length, blogs, if/then/else
    • better social media integration in general
    • literal paperwork.
    • Personal todo list.
    • Personal inboxes
    • Fridge and thus food management
    • output to paper checklists

Other things we learned today.

  • We could do with a real written definition of ‘done’ on some of the tasks, or at least, a more project level view. I’ve put in a note to review the github issue as part of this.
  • the 10minute watching timer is a great way to pull you out of flow (although, hopefully also, back into flow) - a couple of times today it interrupted me when I was working well.
  • It is possible to do the priority list in order. And it’s also possible to feel the pull of ‘how about I keep working on this’.
  • People you respect aren’t ‘constantly on’ they are doing the work.

  • Another thought - the focus on ‘productivity’ is great, but it’s NOT as great as ‘focus on results’ - and it would be so good if we could look back at the last week and read a bunch of really great blogs we did.

04/02/22 15:17 to 15:31, Igor reviewing +EQT

  • Can you believe it was only 33? Almost none of the events.csv were relevant
  • Plus about seven I’d come up with.
  • Ten minutes later it was 17 again.

04/02/22 15:33 to 16:05, Half an hour left. +EQT

I booked the hotel first and then engaged with the reading, because we’re sticking to ‘first thing first’

  • Then I cleared out my messages
  • Then quick linked inreplies

    06/02/22 07:53 to 08:43,

    Migrated five or so posts. It got easier and I’ve now done all of 2018. The years get bigger but I suspect that there will also be a lot of deletions.

    06/02/22 20:01, Doing the praline blog quickly.

    07/02/22 06:21 to 07:29, Hello! +EQT

24/02/22 13:28 to 15:28, Review of projects for wheel of life. +EQT

So here’s my project review.

  • I’m spending all my work time on WWW and very little on OVF
    • OVF needs to become more of a focus
  • The professional TMC had been really left behind.
  • The project boards are ‘wedge shaped’ - there are few deadlined important things, which is great, but that’s also a sign that I’m NOT bringing things open with declarations.
  • Projects aren’t getting closed. They should be. That’s after the next actions.
  • White Water Writers really could do with an extra person.
  • I’ve opened a few new projects to balance things out a bit but I singularly failed to close many that I was actively working on.
  • Marathon - 1st May is in 10 weeks. That’s ten long runs at the weekend.
    • Interferes greatly with diet tho right? I’m already having a bad time.
    • But there’s a half on the same day right? I could do that instead?
    • And a 10k in case of emergency.
      I mean, can we do both? That’s probably Leo’s birthday weekend as well. Hmm.

Pro: tick off a really big goal. Con: will make it very hard to manage food intake if I’m doing regular half marathons.

Pro: will be at just the right wake for a big run. would be a lovely time to do it. Pro: would help burn some calories. Con: don’t really feel like I’m nailing diet at the moment. Would like to be absolutely cracking it before I added more.

The right thing to do is con.

24/02/22 15:50 to 15:52, Todo list is clear.

Done some good things today. Feel a raw about it and NOT as satisfied as I could do, but happy still

Next day - finally reduced down the VPS to minimum size

25/05/22 15:16 to 16:07, IMPS3 +EQT

I want to overhaul the latex.

There are three problems to solve:

  • epubs aren’t showing up author lists
  • pdfs sometimes show the wrong author lists
  • the current structure won’t support multiple camps - the latex aux files will interfere with each other.

Lesser problems include:

  • The script trace is hard to read
  • The Latex is structurally messy and hard to read

Hmmm. What are the options.

After significant brainstorming I’ve decided to have the python directly output a single latex file from the json. We’re NOT going to touch the downloaded files (and in future, we might not download them)

25/05/22 16:07 to 16:47, IMPS3 +EQT

  • Making a plan
  • How to do I store text templates properly in python
    • https://docs.python.org/3.4/library/string.html#template-strings is about templates
  • Created the templates directory
  • Put the card and info templates in the directory
  • started running tests

Today

26/05/22 06:32 to 08:02, IMPS3 Sprint +EQT

Okay, so this sprint was meant to be about fixing the latex, instead I ended up adding regression tests for the processing of Seed files. They are much stronger now though.

In the process, I’ve added code that lets germinate write to file rather than everpad - it’s probably useful to have a version of IMPS3 that works entirely onfiles (including, crazily, word documents), but that’s long in the future.

I’ll finish this mini-sprint off by adding another seed file.

  • 26/05/22 smallest next step: work out why the Mystery files aren’t causing an error when they plainly aren’t there…
  • 26/05/22 smallest next step: Oh, because they don’t expect to be there, should be a counter…

  • 26/05/22 smallest next step: # This needs to be the size of the file list with SLug in the name

26/05/22 09:36 to 10:05, Fixing IMPS2 +EQT

26/05/22 10:05 to 11:05, meeting with Yvonne +EQT

26/05/22 11:05 to 11:27, Back to IMPS3 +EQT

  • Okay, Multiple Seed regressions are working. Pleased with that.
  • Wrote up this file

26/05/22 11:27 to 12:11, Starting the latex +EQT

  • I’ve written the basic method for outputting latex
  • It processes a compilable file.
  • The file looks pretty identical to the original.

Okay, so what are the tests?

26/05/22 12:11 to 14:26, Fixing an error in IMPS2- then moving on to IMPS3 +EQT

  • Created a regression test for latex files per slug
  • Updated the make_pdf file so that it works for the pure latex.
  • For simplicity we now have three bash scripts for making books, proofs, and epubs. And we’ll have three buttons for the process.
  • I’ve checked the epubs and so on, everything looks good.
  • Doing the php
    • Feeling a bit out of my depth
  • Php appears to be working
  • In the process, lots of the latex compilation messages have got shorter and simplier.
  • I’ve written a proper set of notes for Richard about the changes.

26/05/22 14:23 to 14:33, Writing up the Github +EQT

  • Fix the IMPS3
  • Got to say, I think the next code sprint should be on OVF

Did lots and pushed it - it’s now the develop branch on server.

Check out these command lines:

git add –patch test_chapter.py git stash pop git stash push -m “making singletonbook faster” git status

Next action is to examine the test for casting the file properly.

There’s been a lot of refactoring and I’m reasonably happy that the code is in better shape.
