Best part of the month was a brief trip to Venice to see two of my very best friends and just hang out with them. My first experience of acqua alta too, which made it even more interesting.
Highlights of the month:
- Continued to clean up the workings of this new theme.
- Successful one-day sourdough bread course here in Rome.
- Absurd amount of time looking into the top science blogs of 2006.
- Finally got the First Direct banking app up and running on my phone, after excellent phone assistance. My but it is good.
- Bought a vertical mouse; strange but good.
Weight crept up a bit, although overall still trending down. Steps and sleep stayed just about the same. Now only 65% more active and sleep 13% longer than average.
- Walking with sticks: 1
- Reading: 4
- Steps (avge): 9150
- Podcasts: 44
- 7-minutes: 4
Exercise has taken a beating this month, not helped by a bad cold in the final week. The 7-minute workout thing still isn't really gelling.
Reading is low, because I don't count reading online or magazines, and after finishing my most recent book, I couldn't decide where to go next.
Interesting new podcast series from Tim Harford and Pushkin Industries. I haven't subscribed to Cautionary Tales (yet?) but I heard two episodes shared elsewhere. Currently feeling a bit overwhelmed by the backlog.
Not too much in the way of paid work this month, which was a bit of a blessing as it allowed me to finalise my accounts for the past tax year and get them sent off. That's the big chunk of Admin time.

Five new posts, but only three old posts. These are they.
- Boosting the public's mistrust of science
- Love-bomb missed (This was the one that made me look up all those once-popular science blogs.)
- Dark and stars
Still no nearer displaying information here visually. Well, a little nearer, as I continue to learn, but no nearer actually doing it.
I committed to fixing something on this site every day for at least seven days, and probably less than 101 days.
