If you're using Structured Text and you want to use style elements that aren't part of stx, you can just use the elements <center> and </center>.

back from green lands, ready for new work! --Simon Michael, Fri, 14 Jul 2006 11:02:45 -0700 reply

What to say ? Urgh.. writer's block. Come on, typing hands..

I'm back in Los Angeles after a very successful trip to Ireland and Wales. Some highlights: hiked Moll's Gap in Killarney <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Killarney_National_Park> with extended family; climbed the spectacular Snowdon <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snowdon> with my brother and sister, including this high backbone ridge <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crib_Goch> (most of; it became very "interesting"); visited the wonderful Portmeirion <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portmeirion>, created by Clough Williams-Ellis and made famous by BBC television series "The Prisoner <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Prisoner>"; joined the IMRA <http://imra.ie/> and did some runs <http://imra.ie/?sec1=runnerdetails&id=6184&year=2006>!

That was a pretty busy time, and since returning to the US, things have continued to bubble and boil. Funding for my long-time main client gig has come to an end, and it's time for me to find exciting new work. Excellent! And also a nice little test of trust and composure, as I have had a long-time bad habit of living on the edge financially (changing, changing). This plus a week of jetlag-induced sleep deprivation, three weeks house-and-pets-sitting for a friend, another trip pending, and most of all: the excitement, thrills and spills of a new relationship - something I usually find consuming all by itself - has made the last few weeks rich and full! Zwiki had to take a back seat for a while. I apologize for the silence and delay in this month's release.

Regarding new work - I did a lot of thinking about what I wanted to do next, with my life, etc. Some of my desires/needs are: make more money with less stress; work more closely face-to-face with other good people; spend more time engineering and creating; get new experience with state of the art techniques and processes; and of course, do something that brings me joy and uses my gifts to the utmost and serves people and the planet. This is an extremely "interesting" time historically, environmentally, spiritually, and I have a horror of frittering away my life doing things which feel like a waste of time - fiddling while Rome burns! Never mind that I do that every day. Clearly though there are multiple levels of goal-setting, of meeting basic needs, of right action at a given point in time, and it's not so easy to judge the true worth of things. I know that I am ready to be (more) successful financially as in all areas of my life, and that's the right direction for me.

So for perhaps the first time since I left full-time employment at good old Retix 10 years ago, I'm completely open to full-time work as well as part-time, contract, and entrepreneurship. I've updated the ol' resume <http://joyful.com/Resume>, been reawakening the job-hunting muscles, the old employer/friend/family/client network, researching and applying for every fulltime/parttime/contract/short-term/long-term/low-grade/high-end/remote/local/IT/non-IT opportunity that I see. I want to earn, anything at all right now, and more soon after that. The best source I've found has been craigslist, and I've been hitting that site every day. The industry seems strong right now, and I've already made some good connections and done a couple of interviews. The whole process is quite interesting; I don't know where I'll end up next! So if you have any use for my skills <http://joyful.com>, short or long term, contact me <mailto:simon@joyful.com> and I may be able to offer you a good deal!

FYI, I've increased zwiki.org's hyperlinks per edit limit for identified users (max_identified_links) from 5 to 20.

Spammers and Captcha --Steven Brown, Fri, 21 Jul 2006 13:25:40 -0700 reply

We're having a big issue with spammers hitting our zwikis, can Captcha support be added to Zwiki to stop it?

Spammers and Captcha --Simon Michael, Fri, 21 Jul 2006 14:32:59 -0700 reply

Hi Steven..

we don't have captcha support; patches or funding welcome. There are a lot of other anti-spam features and techniques though. Have a look around http://zwiki.org/WikiVandalism , especially the LinkSpam page. Also if you're running an issue tracker, I would upgrade to the latest release to close a hole (changeIssueProperties). I can talk more about specific features or the setup of my wikis if you need.
