I’ve been making something using the “Street Manager” open data about roadworks in England. There are synergistic synergies with other things I’ve made, and haven’t we all stories of passenging on a motorbus (or another combination of gerund and wheeled noun) only to discover that the gas/water/electricity/telephone wallahs have duggen a big hole without telling anyone?
There’s already a website that used to be called “roadworks.org”, now just part of a whole “suite of operational tools” made by a whole compamy of beshirted smiling people. I look at it sometimes, it’s useful, but is there’s some point in making yet another thing that’s a bit like that existing thing?
Apart from anything else, I’ve been using OpenLayers for the first time, about which I have some complaints, but this isn’t the place.
For some while, I’ve been suspending avodo pits in water, and at last one (an unusally big one) has sprouted roots and a stem so into some compost it’s gone, which I’ve just realised is possibly too early so back into the water it will go.
A dog and a person spent a night in the living room here. Some other things happened but I’m tired.
