Andrew diary 2006

Page history last edited by Andrew Alder 17 years, 4 months ago


Welcome to my 2006 online diary!


Well, it's not the complete diary. Part of that (including the archives) lives at andymatter, and I'm a lot more particular about who sees and updates that part. But it's indicative of what is there, and where they differ on future events this one generally takes priority.


And as an aldertalk contributor, you have update access to it! That's how wikis work. Feel free to update it if that's appropriate, marking the update as you see fit. If it's a commitment I've made or just something I need to know about, just add it, no qualification is necessary. If it's a request or suggestion, mark it as such. There's no need to add your name, as you should be logged on with both a meaningful name and a working email address anyway, so I know who you are.


Remember that any other aldertalk contributor can read it! It's not a good place for anything very personal.


And please don't link to this page from anywhere in the public WWW. Instead let's keep the URL secret. That's an extra level of privacy (not security) that costs us nothing and which I think is appropriate for this particular page. It's not very secret, as anyone can see the page is there just by listing AllPages on this wiki.


Last request... don't be too neat. You just gonna mess up my system if you are...


It's my diary, so 'me' (etc) refers to Andrew Alder.
