I'm a Software Engineer at the Wikimedia Foundation, and so of course my personal website is a wiki (running on MediaWiki). In my spare time I volunteer with WikiClubWest to work on Wikimedia projects, mostly around my family's genealogy and local Western Australian history (especially to do with Fremantle). I try to keep up with issues on all the things I maintain (but usually fail).
To contact me, you can email me or find me on the Freenode IRC network (as 'samwilson'). If you want to leave a comment on this site (by creating an account), you need to know the secret code
Tuart (it's not very secret, but seems to be confusing enough for most spammers).
I'm on my way to the climate crisis rally in Perth, somewhat annoyed I didn't bring my computer because I want to work on getting WhoWroteThat onto the AFO. I guess this is meant to be a strike though. I suspect that not flying all over the world every year would be a more useful act on my behalf. I'm feeling good about the Wikimedia meetuos in Perth at the moment because they're local and actually feel more productive than meeting in person in far away places.
I also want my computer on this train so that I can improve the mobile display of the Item metadata table on ArchivesWiki.
I feel like I managed to get quite a bit done at this evening's meetup. I uploaded a dump of the main WMAU wiki to the Internet Archive, and fiddled some more with the events system on the wiki. It's satisfying to get it working better. I added the MsUpload extension to make it easier to upload files, but didn't get time to sort out the attendance-tracking thing that we want to add (optionally) to events.
Is Piwigo a security risk? There's been another vulnerability reported, and it's got me worried. I've turned off my photos site for the time being, till I've figured it out some more.
Maybe I should carry on shifting things to Commons and this collection of wikis. I do like having the option of storing things like timezone.
It seems that the empty comments template works then. That's good.
Seeing what this does.
