Tēnā koe! Ko Peter tōku ingoa — Greetings! My name is Peter.
I am a teacher and lecturer at the University of Auckland, where my main teaching and research activity is in the field of strategy. I am particularly interested in Strategy-as-practice (a practice-based view of strategy), Professional service firms, especially engineering firms, and Innovation as strategy, especially technology roadmapping (TRM).
This website is my little corner on the Internet. As well as being something of a commonplace book, I am trying to make this website into the hub for my online identity and communications.
Here at the University of Auckland, we have access to the library of courses and training from Skillsoft. Browsing through the immense catalogue, I notice a short course (30 minutes or so) on containerised application. So, I thought I would give it ago.
There are a lot of "recipes" out there for how to start cron under wsl when a Windows PC starts up. I won't bore you with why I wanted to do that. Suffice to say, the recipes didn't work for me. But eventually, I found a way.
I have written a a fewtimes about importing Fastmail calendars into orgmode.
This week, I have been reworking it; I had move to using Exchange/Outlook for my calendaring again, but whilst on RSL/sabbatical, I walked away from that approach, and returned to having my calendar in Fastmail and importing the details into orgmode.
After a 2 hour drive this coffee and tea cake were most welcome. Look at the size of that tea cake! Newport is an interest place of contrasts; a very modern shopping centre and a very old traditional high street.
Thanks for the recommendation Chris. I've been pondering it for a while now; basically putting off doing anything. Then I came across this post on how many zettelkasten. I think you and the post have pushed me over the edge, and I'll start the process of 'collapsing' my separate Zettelkästen into my commonplace book.
SSL certificates are something of a pain for me. I have a number of devices that need then. For example, I use Zotero and keep all my .PDFs on my NAS. That requires WebDAV, and https is the only way to go, so my Synology NAS needs an SSL certificate. Nowadays, the way to go seems to be Let's Encrypt.

Schabram, K., Bloom, M., & Didonna, D. (2022). Recover, explore, practice: The transformative potential of sabbaticals. Academy of Management Discoveries. https://doi.org/10.5465/amd.2021.0100
Sabbaticals have seen an exponential growth in adoption over the last two decades and are ascribed extensive benefits by employers and employees alike. Little is known, however, about how individuals spend their time or how their experiences impact them after they return to work. Drawing on narrative interviews with 50 diverse professionals, we discover that sabbaticals combine "building blocks"− distinct periods dedicated to recover, explore, or practice− into three typical trajectories: working holidays (alternating recovery and practice), free dives (alternating recovery and exploration), and quests (unfolding from recovery to exploration to practice). While participants returned from all sabbaticals feeling affirmed in their own voice, periods of exploration and practice were associated with the extent to which sabbaticals fundamentally changed their self-narrative and disrupted the trajectory of their working lives. Those on working holidays tended to return to their former lives (though with a greater confidence and need for balance), while free divers pursued better fitting but similar work (e.g., a change in position or employer), and questers were most likely to make drastic career changes. Our model extends the breaks literature and authenticity scholarship, and offers insights to those considering a sabbatical.
As I work towards integrating my Zettlekasten with this commonplace book, I need a way to have backlinks between my pages; e.g., when I reference/create a link, say, from "Page 1" → "Page 2", I want to automagically create a backlink that goes in the other direction "Page 1" ← "Page 1".
I rather like the way Karl Voit shows how pages have been updated on his site. It's not a Hugo site, but I can see the value in doing something like that.
First, you should know I am using page bundles. It seems clean to have all the 'content' for a page in one place. Secondly, I'm using org files and not .md files (no markdown).
Rather than actually modify posts when there is an update, I want to add a separate file with the details of the update. In the example below I might have two updates to the blog entry made on 2022-12-27.
Free ice cream courtesy of the Link Alliance. Yum, yum, yum. There was also some street art. I couldn't quite make out what the text said. I think it is, "Forget about the last one. Get yourself another". If so, that's from a song by "Th'Dudes" called "Bliss".
Much of the advices applies to publishing in many/most/all management and organisation studies journals. I.e., it is important to have a clear research question, a rigorous methodology, and a well-written and well-structured manuscript that adheres to the journal's guidelines. Additionally, it is important to have a strong and relevant theoretical or practical contribution to the field, and to properly cite and acknowledge any previous research that has influenced the research. Finally, it is important to be able to clearly communicate the significance and implications of your findings for practitioners and future research.
To have responsive images, I used a shortcode for figures. I modified it to handle SVG and rotated images. Alas, I had some other problems with it (too hard to change the size of the images generated for srcset). So I have switched to the code by Charl P. Botha. It's pretty nice.
And again, I've made it work for both SVG and rotated images.
