Social Media Revisited

October 30, 2022

About a year I posted that I had deleted both my Twitter and Facebook accounts.

In March, my wife & I visited friends and family in England (for the first time in three years) as my mother had been diagnosed with AAA (abdominal aortic aneurysm) and it had grown substantially -- the doctor has given her "months" to live, although she's already lasted longer than that!

The new clojure-doc web site

November 14, 2021

Back when I was working on the clojure.java.jdbc Contrib library, I moved its documentation to clojure-doc.org so that the community could contribute to it, without the CLA that covers contributions to Contrib itself. Over time I became a general contributor to clojuredocs/guides which was the repository behind the clojure-doc.org web site.

Unfortunately, about three years ago, the infrastructure that runs clojure-doc.org became inaccessible to the maintainers of the site so, although pull requests continued to be accepted, the site itself could no longer be updated. I talked with Michael Klishin, the original creator of the site, about moving it to GitHub pages but we never quite got around to it. Until today.

Social Media

November 10, 2021

I've been on both Twitter and Facebook for a very long time and it definitely has had its ups and downs. A couple of times over the last six years, I've felt the need to take a complete break from Facebook and have deactivated my account for up to a couple of months each time. I've also taken several breaks from Twitter, although I didn't deactivate my account.

I've finally decided that the cons are outweighing the pros for me on social media so I have shutdown (deleted) both my Twitter account and my Facebook account. Permanently.

tools.build

August 2, 2021

With the recent release of tools.build, I wanted to provide a quick example of using it for a CI-like pipeline.

tools.build is focused on "building" things and when the subject has come up on Slack, the feedback has been that the CLI already has a good story for running tests etc, and the consensus seems to be that running multiple CLI commands is the intended usage.
