Blackout


January 10, 2016. We had the first blackout of note in our Casselman home. It was new - in Moncton, we never had blackouts, because we were a block from the hospital. But rural Ontario is a different story - wind and freezing rain can create problems. Accomplishments today: harvesting and parsing DOAJ journal recordings from their JSON API for use in gRSShopper. This took me about 10 hours of solid coding, stopped only by the blackout. In the end I have a nice elegant solution in about 140 lines of code. Still some tweaks, but I'm very pleased with the overall result, which should be generalizable to other JSON feeds. From Flickr http://ift.tt/1nhbqiP
