One of the AB cronjobs has been throwing errors, but the job is still running.
I am in the middle of refactoring the code to use Dependency Injection; I don’t know how I broke something, but I cannot really go back to a previous version. Rather, I don’t know what version to go back to, and my local dev environment cannot recreate the error.
Annoyingly, my local dev environment cannot even access Ye Olde Interneffe so I cannot easily revert local files to a previous state anyway.
both frontend and backend use Localizer::getInstance in these classes. Inject it instead of reference Singleton ./Data/Unit.php ./DeviceHandler.php ./SiteHandler.php ./Template.php ./Translator.php
I am in the middle of doing
\Data\Unit. Perhaps once I finish that,
I can push, deploy, and pray.
There are 19 more places to change instantiations of
I am curious if I misread or misunderstood the MLAPHP book which said
we are making small incremental changes. This little change seems to
have blown up a bit, due to classes which instantiate
should eventually have its dependencies injected into them as well.
Back when I joined Mankind Project in 1997, the New Warrior Training Adventure was the only way to get started in Mankind Project.
Attending the weekend was a life changing experience for me. It was on that weekend that I realized I was a man. It was during that weekend that I began to get over my fear of men.
Over the years, as an organization, Mankind Project has begun encouraging new men to sit in Open Circles (like the one we have in Tokyo) before attending the New Warrior Training Adventure (NWTA).
I believe the NWTA is still a life changing experience, even after you have been sitting in an open circle. Over the course of the weekend, there is more time to really get into the work than we can in 2 hours.
Anyway, I very rarely do anything like sales pitches in the meetings. I assume you cannot go. I assume you are not interested. I assume all sorts of things that stop me from inviting you.
I hereby invite you to challenge me on Tuesday if I do not bring up the NWTA coming up in Hawaii, March 29th - 31st.
I also hereby invite you to join me in Hawaii for the NWTA, March 29th - 31st. I will be on staff, and look forward to seeing you there.
Is this the time for you? I don’t know. But if you are interested, start here: https://nwta.mkp.org/
Today was a long day, starting with recording a first draft of a video for my first GoFundMe campaign, then two TY lessons, two MKP meetings, lunch with Tomoko, then an hour chillin with “a flower in each hand” behind the desk of the Sweets Party Attendants, having a non-lesson with them because they have nothing going on.
During this non-lesson, Tomoko showed me her “personal こたつ” which consisted of a heater under her desk and a blanket strategically arranged to drape down over her legs. I showed them the latest MT3 video clip, cut and glued 7th outer spiral support. M’s comment was (something like) 「思ったより短い」(but she translated it as “not as much progress as I expected”, so I know my adjective is wrong in Japanese). Tomoko said she would work on translating more of the website. I knew I was stretching it to invite her to (create a Github account, learn git and) do pull requests (but I tried anyway,) and when she saw the source code of a page she commented 「難しい！」 so I apologized and thanked her for anything she could do.
Then headed to JB where we practiced “Happy New Year” with kids lessons and played a variant of UNO targeting adjectives, animal names, body parts, and a couple semantic rules:
“I see a red nose; I play a red dog”
Then with the adults in my 8pm class things like “I see a reindeer with brown antlers; I play a tiger standing in front of brown trees” and culminating with Hide’s “I see an elephant standing on yellow sand and wearing a yellow ribbon; I play an elephant standing on yellow sand and wearing a yellow ribbon.”
Then with the adults in my 9pm class all calling in absent, I got to head home early. I am one station from Noborito now when the class would just be finishing.
And now I would be just a station or two from Noborito, but Lin and I are home. yay!
Write a few sentences about something you did during your ordinary day.
Realized I can get a drivers license
Which one of these simple event of the day had an odd moment? Or evoked an emotion such as aggravation, frustration, surprise, miscommunication. **Name the emotion.**
I realized there was no reason to be a afraid. I wasn’t afraid of riding roller coasters (but some people were). Why should I be afraid of getting a drivers license (as most people are not)?
What were you trying to achieve? What did you want?
Wanted to get a driver’s license.
What was stopping you from getting what you wanted? Was the block internal or external?
Block was internal. People might notice me, or judge me
Why was this important to you? **Was there a backstory** that would help us understand why this is so important?
What **lesson** did you learn from all of this?
Shut up and drive
What **change** can we make in our lives from here on?
Stop letting fear drive the proverbial car in life

2019 is pretty easy to type because the numbers are right next to each other on both sides of the keyboard.
Lin and I went to her sister’s house for new years celebrations. Went to karaoke and then a Chinese izakaya (fusion?) before going to the local shrine where some guys were burning bamboo in metal drums.
We arrived home about an hour before 2019 and took turns taking showers. (I got to wear Toru’s clean underwear, t-shirt, and dress shirt. Thank goodness because mine smelled like smoke after the restaurant.) All clean, Charu arrived back in the living room at 23:59:48.
Happy New Year! Hugs all around and a kiss for Lin then headed home soon thereafter.
Dear Rob, Glad to see you email. I have gone through the website and there are a lot of improvement which can be done. Please check one of our Hugo based website - https://www.nathanaherne.com – If you’ll see on Home page – we have shown important section of the site briefly and with pictures. Same I’ll propose for this website i.e. we can show 3 or 6 Workers with Images, 3-6 Tracks, One Step with picture. Also, the concept of the site is totally different and unique – we need to put few lines to let the visitors understand what the site is all about. We need to create a good logo as well. Regarding Support/Donations, we need to create multiple ‘Call to Action’s to take the visitors to the support page. Do let me know your thoughts on my initial comments and do let me know if you are available for a video call on 3rd or 4th Jan? My Skype id is sanjay.deligence Thanks & Regards, Sanjay Kumar | CEO Deligence Technologies - your growing technology partner
My replies, (poorly formatted here on my site):
HI Sanjay Thank you for your email. I am glad you looked at the same carefully enough to know it is a completely unique project. I agree with the changes you have suggested so far. Here are some more sections of the site I would like to be considered: Episodes There is one more set of pages you should see as well. https://www.marbletrack3.com/episode/ This page is hidden from normal visitors. I would like the design of this page to match the rest of the site, but I do not want the page to be linked from the menus. Episodes are driven with the file at https://github.com/marbletracks/marbletrack3.com/blob/master/data/playlists/knownvideos.toml This file is updated with calls to Youtube API, driven by this script https://github.com/marbletracks/go-get-video-durations I am very happy with the way this all works. I only want to redesign the /episodes page to match the rest of the site. Parts / Workers Did you see how these pages are linked between Workers and Tracks? For example, https://www.marbletrack3.com/parts/caret_splitter_feeder_extension/ source code includes an array of Workers that worked on the track. There will be many many more tracks to come, and I eventually need a way to allow human fans/supporters of the project to suggest names of parts. Thanks There will eventually be many more pages available under https://www.marbletrack3.com/thanks/ There are no pictures of people here yet, but this section is to thank the people who have helped me with the track. The Sweets Party Attendants have helped me with translations. Two more people have helped financially, but I do not have images / permission to show them on the site. I would like a page under /thanks/ to be for this general support. Steps Under "Step by Step" https://www.marbletrack3.com/snippets/ my idea is not nearly finished. If you click the first Step you see this page, https://www.marbletrack3.com/snippets/0010_setting_the_stage/ The Step is a detailed description of the first video snippet in this playlist https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KjsYc4Mb5g&list=PL0osPGt21FB48UwuhtCUoi9JndC9YDHAZ In order to drive this part of the site, I want to create a data file similar to I have sketched out a file at
but I have not written a way to parse it nor easily populate it. There is no way to automatically create this data file, so I need to have a reliable way to manually add new sections to it. I would like for each written Step to be linked to the corresponding second of output video. This line 0:32 "candy_mama" | Snake Plate Chopstick for now, will create text on the site for Snake Plate Chopstick and link it to second 32 of the correct video https://youtu.be/2bP7Irt5hHc?t=32 I imagine this is a mini-project of its own, so I do not mind if we do not work on it. But I am open to questions, ideas, and suggestions for it. In General For this project I would like all work to be done in the open with Pull Requests on Github. I want all changes to work with my current workflow: when I git push changes to the site, they appear on the live site via Netlify. I understand you do not have access to my Netlify account. But I hope once I merge a pull request, it will work that way. We can start with small changes to make sure it works in a way that is good for both of us. blessings - Rob
A few minutes later
HI Sanjay I have just realized I sent my email before speaking about https://www.nathanaherne.com/ You said "we have shown important section of the site briefly and with pictures." Instead of pictures, I want to use video clips like the ones I have at the bottom of my existing site. https://b.robnugen.com/art/marble_track_3/workers/snippets/quick_look_francois_installs_stage.mp4 The overall idea on Nathan's site is good, but Marble Track 3 site must focus on the workers and not focus on me as doing the work. I will be semi-hidden from the project, only visible on /episodes and git repository. thank you Rob
