I'm Sae Ra or MsMaryMac on other platforms. I'm a non- but a Manager of Library stuff by day and a volunteer of tech stuff by night. I'm trying to bring my Open Source-ness to the Australian Library tech scene.

I'm always happy to chat about anything from Libraries to Cross Stitch to random excel tips n tricks.

question for my Library Frens

For those of you that will be tuning in to Antony Green at his best (election night) you should pre-watch this keynote that he did for so you can see the statistical processes he uses to call the election. So Much Stats, Much Awesome.

Suppose I wanted to create a statically generated site, exclusively for posting photos. I would like to be able (at least theoretically) to expand some of the site generator's functionality via a plugin or by sending a patch.

How is it already Sunday 4pm?! I want my weekend back.

An LCA friend of mine has her massive knitted hanging piece on display at the SLV (they’ve agreed to preserve it for her). I suggest you all go and see it. It’s a stunning piece with fully programmed lights and it was knitted with a hacked knitting machine.

So there's an independent that is running for Senate by the name of Max Dicks. I'm sure as hell not going to google that to find out his policies


one of the candidates in my electorate is a snake wrangler... I really do live in the country

Lego Call Centre hold music 

There's a really badly tuned piano for their hold music but to top it off I can pick the wrong note. 20 minutes of this so far is damaging.


ScoMo is going to get re-elected isn't he?

Digital Rights Watch - Melbourne Surveillance Track 

Not sure if anyone is interested but Digital Rights Watch is running a Surveillance walking tour of Melbourne to show the impacts of surveillance in a public and private setting. the Walking tour is here
