Wednesday 02 October 2013 The Forest Road Reader, No 88

Shit an enormous brick! Josh, one of the kids at Harry's gymnastics club has been selected for the Tumbling World Age Group Championships.

Sometimes it's helpful to be told things you already know. Kevlin reminded me how to write a Java method just when I needed it.

Just been asked for the slides from a session on Jenkins I gave at the ACCU Conference a couple of years back. Pleasing, especially as I felt I was unprepared and it was all a bit chaotic. Next year's ACCU Conference issued the call for papers a couple of days ago. I'm not sure I have a proposal in me right now. That's probably a bad thing, even if I don't submit I should have something. Still the 2012 submission was something of a last minute thing, so there's still plenty of time.

A actual doomsday weapon so utterly ridiculous that if it turned up in a piece of fiction your suspension of disbelief would be utterly shattered - Project Pluto.

Enablers Tour and Recording Project 2013 - a small crowdfunding effort I'm delighted hit its goal.

Of course you can avoid doomsday by going to live on Mars. Apply here. This handy article-cum-map at the New Scientist might help you plan the onward trip out of the solar system.

This might seem I an odd thing to say, given that my kids have been doing gymnastics in one form or another for the past seven years or so, that I've been a spectator at National, European, and World Championship competitions, and that I talk about it here a lot, but I realised today I do bloody love gymnastics.
