After Middle School Chris bounced through various high schools around the state of Florida for a bit. He ended up getting a BA (in English) from the University of Central Florida at about the time others his age were getting their MAs. His (now) wife, their child, and he went to Europe for a bit (there was a programming job in Scotland) and came back unemployed where upon he got offered a job in St. Paul. He moved on from that job after a few years to one where he was paid to do the things he previously did as a hobby. That sounds much more exciting than it really was. Really his life is based on two kids, two cats, and a bunny.

OpenGuides Work

[ #33284 ]

Since this is “Visit other OpenGuides Week” Kake has been helping out with the TwinCities Guide. After she and Bob sorted out a performance issue for me (which involved not having a proper index), things have been moving nicely. I’d forgotten how much fun it was to work on and with the Guide.

The OpenGuides for those of you who aren’t aware are a series of Perl based Wikis that use Wiki::Toolkit. Unlike most wikis W::T allows for structured Metadata which means you can easily search for “All Restaurants within 500 meters of [here] that are Open at 6pm”. They’ve been slowly growing for a few years starting with London (for locals try the younger Randomness Guide).

All of this is a prelude to saying that the Twin Cities guide is looking for people to come on board as an Admin. If someone in the Cities wants to pitch in and help, please contact me!

  • Just looked at the site--it's getting pelted with porn spam.
    • One of the reasons I need help. I have one node that is constantly hit. Until I can get some code in to stop that, it'll get 10 hits of spam in a night (as it did for example in the last 12 hours while I was sleeping).
