Got a lot more done than I expected, considering how late I was with last month's report. That is, as long as I focus on what I completed, rather than what I didn't. Which is exactly as it should be.
Highlights of the month:
- IndieWebCamp Brighton, during which I published the theme that produces what you see before you.
- Discovered the
<details>tag, though it isn't working as well as I'd like yet.
- Brought in some old posts, based partly on looking at the logs, which I was downloading by hand prior to ...
- Building a little script to download and rename logs.
- Took a deep breath and persuaded myself that nothing would collapse if the podcast were a day late coming out.
- Went to a friend's opening at an art gallery and had a good time.
A couple of difficulties
- Had a lot of trouble getting Stripe payments on the podcast working under the new EU rules.1
- One disastrous baking day, which none of the clients noticed. That says something.
Steps and sleep crept up, and weight continued to creep down. Still happy to be 69% more active and sleep 14% longer than average.
- Walking with sticks: 4
- Reading: 7
- Steps (avge): 11470
- Podcasts: 60
- 7-minutes: 4
The 7-minute workout thing still isn't really gelling. Maybe it is a mistake to do it only after I've had a good warmup by walking with sticks. I could just try for every couple of days, regardless of other activitiy. I think it was getting easier, but perhaps that was just because I learned what was coming next. This month (November) I tried a couple of the "smart" workouts and they confused me no end by throwing in entirely new exercises.
Reading seems awfully low; I'm thinking I probably forgot to log a few sessions.
Most interesting podcast, by far, was Tunnel 29 from the BBC's Intrigue strand. Just so good.
Some pretty solid chunks of work this month, although I also spend an inordinate amount of time early in the month working on this site in anticipation of IndieWebCamp Brighton.

It is amazing how many problematic aspects of a website just aren't visible until the darned thing is live. I still have loads of snagging to do on this here theme.
There was a good discussion at IndieWebCamp Brighton about the visual display of personal data. I'm better informed, but no nearer actually doing that here.
The weather in Rome was absolutely glorious.
I have no idea how many potential subscribers I might have lost, but past performance suggests none. ↩
