So, deadline for UCU Cambridge committee nominations is Friday. Do I stand, knowing I'll be on maternity leave from Feb? Or do I leave it until next year? Doesn't help that I don't think I'll be able to make the AGM!

I've now reached my weight loss target. Read more on LJ.
It's a long time since I've posted anything here about weight loss. And even longer since I'd updated my webpages about it. In fact they were last updated in 2006 and I'd long since removed the link t...

That's the point at which I joined Slimming World online, so actually it's Margaret Miles-Bramwell who has already bottled it and made millions :)

Getting the motivation to actually follow even a good weight-loss programme in the long-term is something else entirely, and god knows where that actually comes from. I had it in 2002, and again in 2009, but it was missing for a long time in the middle even though I was trying to lose weight some of that time.

Aha, it looks like you can now merge G+ contacts with your own contact details for people in Gmail without them then vanishing from your G+ circles.

I have a friend called Kake. That's her name, with that spelling and no surname. It may not be the name she was given at birth, but she changed it. People do. For all sorts of reasons.

She has been using (Kake ...) as her google profile name, because there's no way to leave the surname blank. And now they've suspended her. I believe she may actually be able to prove that this is her legal name, but she may decide not to bother, and she shouldn't have to.

Google, you're fucking doing it wrong.

Today our old kitchen is coming out, ready for the new one to be installed later in the week. I took some sneaky pics while Pat was having his lunch :) Here they are along with some before pictures:

I made a mail server. And more importantly I made it talk to our existing mail servers in nearly all the right ways. Which means understanding a lot better how our mail servers talk to each other. But it works! Sometimes work makes me happy :)

Well, I'm obviously already a bit late to the party :). I'm not sure how much I'll use this, given I'm already active on Facebook and reasonably happy there. But anyway, "hello world".

OK, now *have* sent feedback to Google asking that the "feature" which is treating my text as markup is made customisable.
