Hugo’s Blog, Mengelmoes, and a Free Stay at Caledon Spa

July 28th, 2008 · Posted by Hugo · 3 Comments

OK, my blog now has a simple commenting system, and is in a state where I feel I can start using it. It is my blog, because isn’t anymore — has its subject matter, and is sticking to it, maintaining focus. And that focus does misrepresent me, hence the need to start another blog to be more of an ambassador to me in cyberspace. It is imaginatively called “Hugo’s Blog“. For now.

Hugo’s Blog is also my playground for some of the website software I’m writing in spare time, software I’m calling mengelmoes. It being a work in progress, and rather immature at the moment, there is a lot that still needs to be done. Have your say on how I should prioritise features on the post Comments Implemented. What Next?

Lastly, you can chip in on what you think I should do with my voucher for two free nights’ stay at the Caledon Spa. Who knows, I might even give it to you. If I like you, that is. 😛

Right, so that’s that, this should be the last non-TTM post to appear on TTM in its current state/incarnation. Material unrelated to that focus will go to Hugo’s Blog instead. Eventually I will find (develop) ways for the two to be more “connected”. (You will notice my blog’s domain name is evidence of some of my future plans. I hope to eventually replace WordPress with mengelmoes, running on Google AppEngine. Because I’m crazy.) Or should I maybe make one last post here, to announce when RSS or Atom feeds are implemented, so that you can go subscribe?

    I’m not going to be able to convince the dear mother to go there in the next two weeks. If I go for an option like that, the most I could hope for, would be to give it to my sister and trust that she would be able to twist my mother’s arm into going once I’m in Switzerland. Maybe worth considering…

    While on the topic of my mother, tomorrow she’s meeting with the oncologists. I hear rumours of suggestions for chemo. And I know she’s really not keen for chemo, she’d rather go for a scan every two months or something. I’m going to trust the doctors that they’d be good at figuring out the best course of action, while taking my mother’s preferences into account.
