I had a pretty good weekend - went to see Valerian with the usual suspects on Saturday and Dunkirk with my mom on Sunday. I don't usually seek out war movies, but Dunkirk was more a story of survival, and the braided narrative structure helped to make an overwhelmingly large-scale event feel character-driven. I would see it again. On the other hand, Valerian was surprisingly disappointing. The visuals were amazing, but the humor and ensemble feel of Fifth Element were missing, and the human characters had no depth. It reminded me more of Jupiter Ascending, except JA was more fun.

I've made some progress on reorganizing the kids' bedrooms. I had originally considered moving both bookshelves into Connor's room, but now I'm thinking a better use of space would be to leave Will's shelves intact and figure out some new clothing storage. Right now, most of Connor's clothes are stored in Will's room in their old changing table, and Will's shirts and jeans are in stacks on the floor. Some lightweight, relatively narrow storage shelves might be a good solution in both rooms.

I was inspired to start yet another knitting project following a conversation with my mother-in-law last week. I had read about Moebius strip scarves but hadn't tried making one until now. They're surprisingly fun!

I've also successfully cleaned out the worst of my email inbox and cleared some space on the DVR. Breathing room is good.

Today we're going to go see what's new at the McWane Center, since we haven't been all summer.

As I mentioned recently, I’ve been wanting to talk about Agile software development methodologies and how they relate to permaculture – Agile permaculture for short – for yearsandyearsandyears, and it finally seems like time to do so. Over on Making Permaculture Stronger, Dan is making an inquiry into permaculture design processes, and how much design […]

I recently took part in a Permaculture Design Course (PDC) – 15 days of classes and hands-on activities covering everything from ecology to passata-making, spread over the first half of this year. I’d been told that doing a PDC makes you see the world differently. I must admit that I didn’t find this to be […]

It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

Busy day!
