Tagging

Last night on Twitter I asked “Looking for a way to tag topics in an authoring platform. Not part of Author-it, does any app do it?” and a few helpful people gave me suggestions. I later clarified and thought I’d expand on that here. My clarification was that “Re tagging: we want to tag topics in the authoring tool so whatever the output, the user can filter on tags eg, v1.0/email or v2.3/document”, it was at this point I realised I needed more than 140 characters to explain what I was looking for… Our product is in the throes of moving to a modular/component delivery. We will no longer have one installer to install one big product with everything in …

Which way now?

I’ve been a wee bit ill the past couple of weeks, what started as a cold soon moved to my chest and, thanks to a bad chest/lung infection a few years ago, floored me for about a week. Last night I thought I’d get back into the exercise habit, nothing too strenuous mind, and after 15 mins of jumping around infront of the TV (XBox Kinect: Your Shape Fitness Evolved) I was flat out on my back and hauling for air.

Resolved to be new

I lied. I know I wrote previously about not having resolutions but (as Blue Witch points out in the comments) I did have resolution. I am determined to make this year a good one. However I’m very goal oriented so I did, quietly, set myself the following goals: Read one book a month. Take a photo everyday. Lose at least 8kg (aiming for 95kg, just under 15stone). Progress so far: I’ve read one book (Tinker, Tailor, Solder, Spy), and halfway through a second (Oryx and Crake). I’ve almost managed this one (the day I missed I remember but then forgot again! gah!) I’m cheating a little, but over the course of last year, I’ve gone from 111kg to 103kg. I’m …
