Decades-long projects

As I wrote last week the Diary of Samuel Pepys project has kicked off again for another almost-decade of daily publishing. What’s wrong with me? Or, more practically, what did I think about when starting a ten-year project all over again?

  • 07:43am: @holgate Just finding it weird to get endless urgent-sounding updates about events that mean nothing to me; I worry they should.
  • 05:13pm: @holgate Eek, the "pffft" and date is a bit alarming. I still have no idea what and when is happening or what and when I need to do things.
  • 05:14pm: @holgate Yes. I'll have to look up what I asked for though. Bah.
  • 05:17pm: @holgate Hmm, I can see no way to find out which option I opted for, although I do have new virtualmin log details.
  • 05:22pm: @holgate With Joyent? Textdrive? I have no idea who has responsibility for what. Grrr. Mess.
  • 05:23pm: @holgate Eesh, good luck. My mail is elsewhere, but there's a forest of cranky old websites there to, er, re-plant.
  • 06:10pm: A Spotify playlist of the "Jazz Starter Kit" suggested by Mike Johnston on the Online Photographer
  • 06:11pm: "Nice." (No room on previous tweet for obligatory word.)
  • 06:30pm: @allanpollock Follow the first link!
  • 07:01pm: @jwheare Yeah. I know nothing about jazz, so it's nice just having some way of narrowing it all down.
  • 08:46pm: @designswarm That sounds good. Well done, whatever it is you’ve been approved for!
  • 09:46pm: ‘Friday Night Dinner’ is a delivery mechanism for parcels of Mark Heap brilliance. It’s worth sitting through the packaging to get there.
  • 10:21pm: This episode of ‘Friday Night Dinner’ is packed with Mark Heap, so good: Haven’t laughed that much at TV in ages.
  • 10:29pm: @suegyford Ooh, I’ve got that one still to watch! His character does seem like he’s walked in from a different TV show entirely.
  • 10:53pm: @gwire @yoz Oh, I didn't realise that. Boo, what a shame, as that was simple enough for me.
