A rough account of what I did with Emacs recently.
- September 11
- More fun with our TV provider:
me: "search for Endeavour"
tv: "ok! I found Endeavour"
me: "show me"
tv: "S1E1 is on next Saturday, and S7E1 is available on replay-tv."
me: "what about S7E2?"
me: "ok, lemme check the TV guide."
guide: "S7E2 is on this Sunday"
tv: "no idea what it's talking about"
Note, the search function and the TV Guide are part of the same
piece of software. I've set it to season recording, but who knows
what that'll do.
I also discovered that the "remote recording" feature, whereby you
can use the provider's website to set recordings on your settop
box, doesn't notice if you subsequently delete the recording from
the settop box, and doesn't list anything you're recording that
wasn't booked through the settop box. Cunning.

- Star Trek: TNG: Season 4 complete.
- September 8
- Since several office tools support Markdown,
I'm finally sufficiently familiar with the basics that I've
started using it for scratch-building HTML pages. I'm using Python-Markdown
which has some nice extensions (like arbitrary attributes, and
tables), but I've not actually looked at the HTML it outputs yet
to see how clean it is.

- So we chugged through most of ST:TNG Season 6 without losing an
episode, and rolled over to season 7, and just because I stopped
paying attention our beloved service provider decided to
do whatever they do that makes Season Recording stop recognising
that you've enabled it for, you know, a season, so we
lost a few of Season 7. On the plus side, the "sweeper" channel is
just picking up the hole in season 4 from when we had to replace
We pay for this wonderful service, you know.
