As part of this years creativepact I intend to post a picture a day taken with my phone.

Something that has been annoying me for a while is getting the bibliography to display correctly at the end of a latex beamer presentation, i.e. across multiple slides rather than off the bottom.

Found this online today which fixes the problem,

\begin{frame}[allowframebreaks]
        \frametitle{References}
        \bibliographystyle{xxx}
        \bibliography{yyy.bib}
\end{frame}

I have been developing a site using Ruhoh, a Ruby based static site generator. It use Moustache as a templating engine which I had not used before but am now very impressed with.

A cool feature is the ability to include and exclude parts of the template based on the presence of variables.

chorlton-beer-festival

On Friday I joined some friends in attending the Chorlton Beer and Cider Festival in glorious sunshine.

Enjoyed a modicum of real ale including, Dunham Massey – Mildly Ginger, Ulverston – Lonesome Pine, Blackjack – Summer Oddington, Beartown – Polar Eclipse, Brightside – Inn Crowd, Dunham Massey – Chocolate Cherry Mild, Medieval – Crusader, and Thwaites – Nutty Black.

I am torn between Dunham Massey – Mildly Ginger and Ulverston – Lonesome Pine for my beer of the festival as both were really nice.

July the first 2013 marks the discontinuation of Google Reader, which is sad.

Of course this is always the danger of using propriety code either as a local application or as a web service.

I have migrated to Tiny Tiny RSS which is an active open source project.
