Shameless Self-promotion Sunday: Vines, Poisoned and Unpoisoned, Edition

Here's a pretty old post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 10 years ago, in 2012, on the World Wide Web.

This week — and for that matter this weekend — has mostly been a matter of desk-clearing for me. L. and I took a trip to Asheville — for the town, and for the mountains — over a wonderful, long weekend. We’re going out of town again, for a fairly long stretch, to visit family in the far North and for a couple of conferences. Anyway, the in-between time has been devoted to trying to fulfill some commitments, discharge some debts, and (to-day) going through a lot of web server error logs in an effort to clear up as many outstanding issues as possible before I skip town. The summer here in Alabama is still producing a mix of the gorgeous days and the lightly stultifying ones; but if the first kind are running out, the consolation is that gardens are coming around to their first harvests. Mean-while, though, for the moment I’m stuck inside, trying to prune off some less pleasant growths from computers while I’m around to take care of it.

How about y’all? What’s up with you this week? What have you been up to? Write anything? Leave a link and a short description for your post in the comments. Or fire away about anything else you might want to talk about.

    to visit family in the far North

    To me that means Hudson Bay or the like. But your standards may be different. :-)

      In this case it means Maine, although actually we are going further north (to Prince Edward Island) in the course of the same trip. But everywhere in the northern hemisphere is far to the north relative to somewhere else.

    Preparing to assign final grades. Gearing up to being dealing with the copy-editing of Anarchy and Legal Order. Glad the summer is almost here.

    We’re on a quarter calendar. Spring quarter runs from April through mid-June. Fall quarter starts September 24.
