15 years ago today I wrote enthusiastically about @Mann_Library @Cornell gathering up great graphics to share and inspire.

The old website remains at https://web.archive.org/web/20170719024829/http://martha.mannlib.cornell.edu/charts/ but where are the original submissions and what happened to the project?

On this day in 2009, I never thought I would be directing this post to @danielpunkass https://www.jeremycherfas.net/blog/the-software-ate-my-homework-honest.

Long may it continue.

Hey @marcoarment Overcast.fm still giving errors: ssl3_get_server_certificate:certificate verify failed when I try file_get_contents(overcast_url)

Is this a relic of the big certificate fail a while ago? If not, I wonder what I can do about it.

Jeremy Cherfas

Very nice idea. @croptrust is offering to help seedbanks in less well-off countries financial help to duplicate their collections and store them safely in Svalbard.

What are you waiting for? Apply now. https://www.croptrust.org/svalbard-grant-call-for-proposals/

Hey @marcoarment Has something changed in Overcast back end? I am getting errors like `file_get_contents(): Failed to enable crypto` from my all data XML file. Maybe part of that root certificate thing, which I confess I do not fully understand.

Giving up on Defeated on Netflix after two episodes. Too dark, too violent, too one-dimensional.

Looking back through some posts On This Day, I came across one about a book and CD called Jane Austen Sings the Blues. The book is still around, but I can find no trace of a recording of the accompanying interview. Maybe @GrantStovel at @ckuaradio knows where I can find one

Bagged another geohash, yesterday, which miraculously was within walking distance. Not sure how best to own this contents though. [2021-09-06 41 12 - Geohashing](https://geohashing.site/geohashing/2021-09-06_41_12)

Great fun chatting with Amalia Sacchi for @festletteratura about food, agriculture and the climate crisis, although ashamed not to be able to do it in Italian. It will be streamed on 8 September at 14:10 CEST.

In case you thought "organic" meant anything more than another way for industrial food to profit with no regard to any costs other than purely financial, Marion Nestle takes apart Danone's decision to abandon small organic dairies https://www.foodpolitics.com/2021/08/24686/
