For various reasons needed to look at SPARQL again. What’s the easiest way to put it up?, Here! I’ve installed LH Tools and have a SPARQL endpoint and query panel installed. It’s currently here, but I reserve the right to integrate it into my look and feel here. The site has an rdf feed which is what it uses as the query target, need to check if the link record its there.
I was looking to calculate if someone was under 27 years old; this can Be quite tricky but excel has just the function, =DATEDIF(). Continue reading “Date Differences in Excel”
In the early parts of Act III of NWN2, Zhjaeve seems to be pretty necessary. Also since she’s the only Cleric offered, pretty useful, although the ‘coming to’ of otherwise dead party members, reduces the necessity of the Cleric and it’s free Heals and combat cure wounds that they become useful. The forgotten realms wiki has an article on her here… Her stats are discussed here… at nwn2 wikia where they note that her strength makes her a poor 2nd line fighter. A mod has been built that allows her avatar to be armoured, the default is not. Continue reading “Zhjaeve Unveiled”
How awesome is this! Excel =INDEX, is a matrix retrieve i.e. =INDEX(array, row, col) retrieves an entry from the two dimensional array. If we combine this with MATCH which returns a row number we can use these functions instead of =VLOOKUP, its allegedly faster too. MATCH operates on a column or linguistically a list. Continue reading “VLOOKUP vs INDEX ( MATCH)”
While installing docker, I decided I needed to write some notifications to ensure the configuration works. See Docker. I started with a TCL/TK script, which these days looks a bit old school, and writing the packer was (& remains) difficult. Virtualbox reports its status on Ubuntu via a very pretty interface, prettier than Apple script anyway, so I thought I’d have a lock. Continue reading “notify-send”
What a pile of poo! I have access to four smtp servers and they all have limits on the distribution list size! (They are all about the same size of 100). Google will allow 2000 per list but only if you use one of their clients. Let’s try and bring up an SMTP server, connect it to DNS, and then send them myself. Sounds like a job for AWS.

While developing the new web site, I had a look at how my mingle was organised. The current regime has a conversion rules file for each output format and one for HTML. I need to incorporate the HTML output in a wordpress page and also apply the wordpress style rules to the HTML. I solved this problem by generating three html files, a feed, a source key and an output format key and then including them in the host page. Continue reading “Planet, mingle & wordpress”
I got distracted and was pointed at Kitematic, but it’s Mac only and so I moved on to Panamax. I am not sure this is for me, but we’ll see and I am still not clear that the answer isn’t shipyard. Continue reading “Managing Docker with Panamax & Vagrant”
About Docker, looks awesome. Easy to create bootable, runnable images, easy to deploy because the global hub site is a crucial part of the proposition. The free usage of the hub, encourages the publication and sharing of images which are then imported over the internet.
In order to export the ello.co feed, I need to cnvert the JSON to XML. This isn’t the first time I have needed to look at this sort of problem and so I have created a page to hold my notes. There are as yet no answers. Continue reading “JSON to XML”
I finally got a git account. Most people, more recently seem to be there and the download interface is now much easier than sourceforge. Continue reading “git & github”
ello export a feed as JSON, here’s its name structure http://ello.co/username.json but you need to be logged in, god knows why. So I might need the unofficial ello API. Continue reading “Exporting ello.co”
