Think I might be getting quietly addicted to adding contributions to wikipedia.org. Relax, I’m only joking. I’ve contributed more than my usual amount more recently is all….
Sure, over the past year or so I’ve been adding pertinent links to linux.ie articles for the Samba, JUnit, Vim and Leafnode entries on wikipedia.org. There are probably a few more I’ve forgotten and won’t be able to determine what they were, unless I go looking at linux.ie access logs, as I’d revised those entries anonymously as I wasn’t all that bothered to get a wikipedia account.
I changed my mind on Tuesday because I wanted to write an entry on Cloughjordan, which is where I’m from, basing my decision on wanting any other Cloughjordan natives that might read the entry to know that it was written by a local. I then quickly updated the relevant entries too.
After a while I decided to update some Clive Sinclair entries, as the ZX Spectrum which he brought out in 1982 is pretty much responsible for my interest in computers and Information Technology in general – I can’t believe that people are actually working on an extended version of Sinclair Basic at the moment!
That’s what I’ve been up to in my spare time while looking for work and accommodation in Dublin, along with working on the linux.ie site.
