New homepage

I am moving my blog to

Circumstances at work and in life have changed dictating that I take a personal website more seriously and, since nobody knows why I use marknewlyn, I am moving to a domain people will "understand".

Word, OpenOffice and Connexions - probably part I

I have a word document with a few equations in it. When I open in OO2.4 some of them are read-only and some are editable. When I open it in OO3.0.1 all of the equations are read-only.

This behaviour is unchanged by toggling the settings in Tools->Options->Load/Save->Microsoft Office.

I'm running all of this on Ubuntu 8.10.

I really want to import the document into Connexions but the read-only equations don't seem to be a supported media type?

This is a placeholder blog post so I've got somewhere to attach a file while I look for a solution.

FHSST Release 0

I probably should have blogged about the release of the zeroth version of the FHSST books immediately but it seems that blogging isn't really in my blood.

Here is the announcement we sent out.

Hi All

Brightest Young Minds

On Saturday, 30th September, I was invited to attend the Brightest Young Minds conference held at Spier wine estate. The primary purpose of the event was for BYM to unveil their new vision and strategy going forward.

I'm just going to jot down a few key points/outcomes that interested me.

Indigo Youth Book Fair 2008

I was lucky enough to be invited to the Indigo Youth Book Fair 2008 in Pusan, South Korea. I am going to run through the events of the last few days just to get some ideas down. It deserves a much more detailed blog than this one but I want just to get the overall trip details down and mention some of the things that interested me. This is not a fair review of the whole event.
