17-20 hrs: My small part of the Joomla! documentation project - - progresses. This might be the most important thing I have written - - ever.
I have now done a bunch of 'How to - -' do things documents about starting to use Joomla! They are not finished because they are never finished. They are in the same format as Wikipedia - so I can go on editing them for ever. Unlike a book - they don't get copy-edited but they do get seen rather sooner.
I have spent a lot of time editing and writing these - which is one reason I have not written as many blogs as I would have liked. They are due to be released into the wild - that is to say - linked from the main Joomla! site - maybe the end of the week. This is the importance because thousands of people use the site.
Joomla! is free at the point of download. It is a Content Management System - used for - um - managing the content and layout of lots of web sites world-wide. Some small business, clubs, associations use it - as do bigger outfits. More on this and the ecosystem that is Joomla! in another post.

|Tender to Lookfar|
17-20 hrs: admire- - ready for the summer exploration of East Anglian rivers.
I have been after a small tender for the boat for ages - the concept is to be able to row ashore short distances without getting wet.
All I need now is - energy to paint rudder - energy to clean hull - energy to put anti fouling on hull - money to get a few luxuries - nice weather -- and away I go - -

|Snowdrops encircle a fine horse-chestnut tree in local woodland.|
9-50 hrs: Note the sunshine in the background. There are other signs of spring - winter aconites, swelling buds, catkins; but no sailing activity on the river yet.
I continue to fettle boats, visit the gym for a new and better regime, visit the river banks and ponder the future, alongside the usual domestic trivia. Most of my focus is on the Joomla! documentation project - of which more later.

9-25 hrs. Instead of working on Joomla! I am watching this - Bell Rock - http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing
This may or maynot have been said by Burke - but apply it to forests.
The plan to sell forests - a really bad thing.
Please be consulted - http://www.forestry.gov.uk/
and sign the petition at http://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/en/Pages/default.aspx
It is selling the family silver (or in this case wood - but no less valued)
