A working day with not a lot to write about apart from a little learning, and a little earning.

Some days are better than others...

We've still got some weird tech fails in a tool that we are pretty reliant upon for one of our clients. I spent most of the day working on this client.

As with any tech issue, isolating the fault is proving tricky.

Internal browsers, external browsers, operating systems, working with my legs crossed / uncrossed - we just can't work out when the fault lies.


I took time out throughout the day to catch up with the cricket. I missed Bell End.

No worries. I'm sure that there will be other opportunities throughout the winter.

I did catch what seemed like a tame PMQs, and then yet another ACE Notes & Queries with @RobertElms.

The question of the Rastafarian West End cyclist was finally solved.

I headed off to CBC Cabinet early evening.

It was the usual guff of a posturing new Tory Leader being bullied by a WEIRD LibLab love in of a Cabinet.

I experimented with @mixlr. I was quite pleased with the results. Streaming was really simple. Archiving back at base was slightly tricky.

I linked the account to The Chronic's @audioboom channel. But this only holds ten minutes, whereas the meeting was just under an hour.

In the end I hard coded the @mixlr mp3 straight to The Chronic's self-hosted WP site.

Job's a good 'un.

The free model offers up an hour of live streaming. That nice @SE1 reckons that he has pushed this over the limit over at Southwark.

I think that the mix of tweets and streaming audio is the way to go for hyperlocal localgov meets.

It would be nice to have some half-decent content to work with...
