The brain drain continues – I’ll have a short pub visit tonight, for one of my former co-workers who’s leaving for the University literally next door to us. Then tomorrow night, one of my colleagues, Marko, is starting a six-month sabbatical, during which he will walk the whole US West Coast from Mexico to Canada. He’s keeping a journal on his walk, here. Madness, I tell you, madness.
A small ongoing project at home is compiling the complete works of Shakespeare into an “intranet” format for personal use. It’s a lot of words, though not too much to keep on my PDA, but the work is in moulding it into a friendly format, easily navigable. There are such websites on the internet, but they represent someone else’s work, and aren’t as “barebones” as I’d like mine to be. Last night I managed to automate the process of splitting 154 Sonnets into individual pages and adding titles and formatting – took a bit of doing, but the results are looking good. FrontPage also automates the creation of previous / next / up links – as I use here too.
