Postie 1.4.2 Stripping Leading Whitespace from Markdown Posts

Update – This still applies to Postie 1.4.3 released 12/12/2011. Recently I’ve been trying to reconcile the best way of adding and maintaining content on my blog, partly with a view to how my clients are able to maintain there own content. The state of WYSIWYG editors for websites is truely appalling, unless I’m massively missing something that is out… Read more »

Eurovelo 6 – Roscoff to St. Nazaire to Basel – I Miss You Already

Well, I think I just heard the last reverberation of the fat ladies dulcet tones, so I guess that means that the challenge is over, and it’s time to head off into the tunnel for the post-match interviews. So Dave, were you pleased with your performance during the game? Oh yes, I think it all worked out quite nicely. The… Read more »

What Is The Paleo Diet, Anyway?

      No Comments on What Is The Paleo Diet, Anyway?

The Paleo Identity Crisis: What Is The Paleo Diet, Anyway? http://www.gnolls.org/2226/the-paleo-identity-crisis-what-is-the-paleo-diet-anyway/ We call it “paleo” for the same reason that we call it “Latin”, even though we have absolutely no idea how it was spoken. Just as Latin scholars attempt to maintain something syntactically analogous to written Latin, paleo dieters attempt to maintain something nutritionally analogous to an ancestral human… Read more »

Eurovelo 6 – Day 19 – The Journey Home

      2 Comments on Eurovelo 6 – Day 19 – The Journey Home

Click Here for the Full Interactive Map A day of complete contrasts and first time experiences. First off, not on the bike today. Well, OK there was a little bit of biking, about 500 yards to the train station in Mulhouse, and about 1/4 of a mile across Paris from Paris Est to Paris Nord. No, the story today is… Read more »

Always Ride in the Cycle Lane – Regardless

      No Comments on Always Ride in the Cycle Lane – Regardless

A pertinent video after riding through London yesterday. I was a pleasantly surprised by the provision of cycle lanes on London’s streets, although a bit of paint down the side of a road does not necessarily make car drivers any more aware of your existence. Even where the cycle lane is separated from the road by a curb, it still… Read more »

Eurovelo 6 – Day 18 – Montbéliard to Basel (and back to Mulhouse)

Click Here for the Full Interactive Map Today could easily go down as the best of the trip, for the sheer sense of achievement. Three milestones added the list. We crossed the 1000 miles mark (which was the whole point of touring in the first place), we got all the way to Basel setting foot (or wheel) in Germany and… Read more »

Eurovelo 6 – Day 17 – Besançon to Montbéliard

Click Here for the Full Interactive Map After yesterday’s washout, the sun is shining when we wake. The shoes however still have memories of the day before, but not too uncomfortable. I seemed to be struggling for the word go, feeling ok but not as interested in breakfast as I should have been. Not really enough fuel for the day… Read more »

Eurovelo 6 – Day 16 – Verdun-sur-le-Doubs to Besançon

Click Here for the Full Interactive Map Ok, so it turns out that yesterday was not exactly the most unpleasant day. At least the sun was shining. After yesterday’s ‘maladie’ I felt much better this morning. Jones had spent the night taking issue with the decoration of the bathroom, but things appeared to have calmed down by the time we’d… Read more »

Eurovelo 6 – Day 15 – Santenay to Verdun-sur-le-Doubs

Click Here for the Full Interactive Map Yuk. Yuk. Thrice Yuk. Not a good day. Woke up this morning feeling a little nauseous, and wanted to blame the Grimbergen (again) had as a nightcap, but this was not a hangover. This was something brewing in the stomach that I hoped would go away. I struggled with a cup of coffee… Read more »
