The new Hughesdale railway, still under construction
R707 steams through Hughesdale at the head of the Snow Train
Following a bouncing ball from Aaron Davis’ Read Write Collect to Hacking an Ontario Extend Visited Countries Map I found myself looking at the URL for a map of the world and countries visited. I’ve had the list in my “where” page for ages – although I also just realised that I’d left off Malaysia after our trip to Borneo a couple of years ago. So where next? I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you….
Yesterday for the first time in ages I took a look at a video from the Cycliq Fly12 – I wanted to see what the grid-locked traffic looked like. As usual, I did it through the USB connection since I’ve found the Android app to be barely usable for connecting to the device, let along trying to view any video. Watching the video I realised it was still set to GMT+11 so the timestamps were an hour out.

Inspired by https://miklb.com/blog/2017/12/22/open-tabs-vol-i/ I thought I’d do a sweep across my open browser tabs – what’s there, and why. I tend to keep the number of open tabs to a minimum, anything banked up “for when I get around to it” is bookmarked in my org-mode notes. Pinned Gmail Google+ joindiaspora Gmail feedly Google Keep Slack Unpinned On The Road: A Spotify playlist from a YHA email that I thought I’d listen through.
[2001-06-07 Thu] / Panorama from Glastonbury tor (2/5) / Glastonbury, UK I discovered during some re-reading of old posts – A simple task…. – that I’d manage to make typos for years, the APS photo roll 902-122 being mislabelled as 902-112 at times. I think I’ve fixed all the occurrences, and along the way moved away from having those photos as static images in the filesystem and into my openphoto installation.
I’d bookmarked this one a few weeks ago, a tutorial on using MathJax to embed equations in pages. Some playing around and I found the correct level of escapes needed to get the MathJax code through the Org mode interpretation into the markdown intermediary, and then fed into hugo. The inline code in the Org mode source needs to be opened by two backslashes and a left brace, and then closed by two backslashes and and a right brace.
Following on from my last writeup of the arbitrary bike path closures by the LXRA, on top of this week’s confusion about when “early May” expires so the bike path will re-open, I got some new information about the next closure! Or is it just a continuation of the current closure? [2018-03-02 Fri] surprise closure, no sign The Station trail bike path had only been open for just over a week, after the previous three month closure, today it was closed.
Further in my thinking of where I should host my photos and how I should display them, today I decided to look into embedding images from Google Photos. It doesn’t look to be easy by default, the “share” option lets you paste into G+, Facebook and Twitter, and the only other option is a URL that points to the image on Google Photos. Some brief searches and I found a facility – https://ctrlq.
