In the English-speaking Caribbean and related communities, today is the Junkanoo, an African-influenced parade, which has appeared on occasion in movies and television. In other parts of the world, it is Zartosht No-Diso, commemorating the death of Zoroaster, who inspired one of the world’s most influential religions.
And with that, on to my last developer journal post of the year.
As mentioned over the last few weeks, while I deal with other things, my primary focus has gone to writing up issues on my repositories, so that future work doesn’t require my remembering what needs to happen.
- Search the blog for more Markdown hacks to create more semantic tags, and replace handled hacks with the already-created tags. Post tags should also, if possible, ignore dashes.
- Thinking about the future of Bicker, it should be able to interact through e-mail and be embeddable as a comments area.
- Miniboost needs a reliable way of creating links between notes, and its links should go somewhere as they do with Boost Note.
- It finally occurred to me that INTERN should have the ability to handle richer formats than merely text.
- CPREP should use more of the CIA data to attempt to construct a preliminary history, though that’s not necessarily as useful in a globalized world. Then again, the idea that someone is exclusively “from” a certain part of the world is a bit silly, to begin with.
I feel like I might be running out of ideas for future additions, but maybe I’ll be struck by inspiration.
It’s not the biggest deal, but I bumped a couple of the libraries for Ham Newsletter.
Oh, probably more of the same, to close out the year…
