Week Notes 11 & 12

It’s been a pretty quiet fortnight all in all.

Blogging

I’ve written Nothing here, but there was a post on my Perl blog which has attracted a pretty impressive number of comments. And a few more stories from ten years ago got published on Wasted Inches.

Health

I appear to have reached a bit of a plateau with my ankle. I’m getting about on it just fine, but it doesn’t seem to be getting much better. It still aches quite a lot. And it swells up towards the end of the day.

I thought I was free of the hospital, but they’ll set up another appointment for next week. This time it’s with the Osteoporosis and Rheumatology department. Which all makes me feel rather old.

Programming

I did a bit of work on a couple of my Perl modules. And I’ve returned to an older project which I’m hoping to make some good progress on in the next few weeks. More information when it’s in a usable state.

Films

I saw John Carter. I thought it was terrible. Today I’m going to see The Hunger Games. I really enjoyed the books and the reviews for the film have all been pretty good.

Last week I was invited to a free test screening at the Clapham Picturehouse. They didn’t tell us what the film was until we got there. It was a film called Liberal Arts. Afterwards a dozen of us were invited to a focus group to discuss the film and how it might be marketed. I enjoyed the film, but it seems my view was in the minority.

TV

Our rewatching of Lost is drawing to the end. We’re in the middle of series six. I know I’ve seen series six before, but I’m finding that I can’t remember very much of it at all.

Over the next week there are new series of both Game of Thrones and Mad Men. But they are both on Sky Atlantic which still isn’t available on Virgin Media, I’ll looking to the internet to provide copies.
