It's that time of life. We've begun a list of things to do before we kick it.
Check out the list of our favourite films, TV programs, books and plays! This should help us with those "what was that thing we saw with what's his name in it" moments. Mostly recent, but with a few of our can't-possibly-be-left-out all-time absolute favourites.
The family tree has had an upgrade. The main difference, other than cosmetic changes, is that the full siblings of the person currently in focus are now shown: older siblings on the left and younger siblings on the far right (beyond partner(s) which, if any, are on the immediate right of the focus). This means you don't first have to click on one of the parents and then click one of their other children before you can focus on somebody's brother or sister: they're right there in front of you ready to be clicked.
I wanted the ability to perform syntax highlighting on snippets of code in this blog so I looked for an open source project which would integrate nicely with this app's stack (Rails 4, HAML, Bootstrap 3 plus Markdown for the blog posts) and preferably also be able to highlight Elm code. Elm is a relatively new language that is totally different to what I'm used to (Perl and Ruby) but which has a number of attractive features and has already been used in some parts of this site (notably, for the family tree).
The new home page for this web site is now a blog (instead of a graph showing my weight history) and this is the first ever post!
