  1. Windows 8: the infinite yak-shaving

    So I got a call from a friend who’s ms-windows 8 laptop was wedged.

    Having set the machine up for him, I felt obliged to help, even though troubleshooting ms-windows ranks pretty on the bottom my list of favorite activities.

  2. Writing the README first

    Today I watched Kenneth Reitz’s python for humans video. His statement that “API is all that matters” resonated with me because I sometimes struggle with that.

    Then he mentioned that you should write the README first, before writing any code. This is something that I do sometimes, but not always thoroughly. So I decided to use this as an experiment to refactor my beammech module.

  3. Enjoying the sunshine

    On the 8th and 9th of March 2014 it was unseasonably warm. In fact the temperatures on both days have been the warmest on those dates since recording began in 1901.

    Here in Eindhoven the temperature reached 21 °C today! So I got out the lawn-chair and enjoyed the sunshine!
