Harry Wood admin abuse. Do we need him as admin at wiki??? 10 months ago

"I'm not attacking Harry."

Is this a joke or are you attempting to backpedal?

You can't possibly be serious posting that sentence beneath the above diary entry. I note though actually you seem (?) to have edited the main text of this and possibly removed the most scathing remarks. I wonder if a cache exists somewhere on the web of the original version. Would be interesting to see.

@d1g: do you think anyone's opinion should be heeded but your own? it doesn't sound like it.

I'm not sure why you're making this an ad hominem thing about Harry. You're probably rationalizing things and convincing yourself that it's Harry in particular that has a problem with you, and it couldn't possibly be that you are doing anything wrong. You'd be very wrong in thinking this. Harry is just the caretaker.

If you really want to know how popular you are try popping up on IRC under your real name and air your views.

As for "Harry Wood never had interest in OSM being TRULLY international", you clearly have never met him or really ever spoken with him. Or have any idea about him. I'm really appreciative that he does the work he does dealing with people like you so the rest of us don't have to. From your attitude I can clearly see why this "xxzme" person people had been moaning about was so worth banning.

Thanks for all your hard work Harry!

OSM Analytic Difference Engine 11 months ago

(I am strongly of the opinion that we need to look at getting functionality like this integrated into osm.org at somepoint in the near future)

Very interesting. I love the concept of this.

How do you deal with non-atomic changesets? I can't imagine generating the diff can be simple in cases you have changesets overlapping in time windows & affected feature sets.

Looks like you've got a subject for next MM evening's opening mini-talk.

Great post.

In the US, what would probably be most interesting is a comparison render of just after the TIGER import and today.

Mapping turn lanes in OpensStreetMap 12 months ago

One question: does the plugin work for countries that drive on the left?

Mouth hanging open in amazement.

Losing faith in OpenStreetMap about 1 year ago

Yup, keeping data nice is a constant battle. Just gotta keep fighting.

Namespacing can be quite powerful.

^Heh.

Apparently he just has code to turn it into .osm files. Here: https://github.com/derickr/osm-tools/tree/master/musical-chairs-to-garmin

Conversion to gpx wouldn't be a difficult hack. Good beginner project.

OS Locator update 201411 over 1 year ago

Ahoy there James,

I do produce a gzipped csv of the results (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OS_Locator_Musical_Chairs#Can_I_have_a_dump_of_the_data.3F) which I know Derick Rethans (http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/Derick%20Rethans) for one uses to produce something like a GPX for his Garmin. Knowing him he has some php script for doing it.

First thoughts almost 2 years ago

No harm in starting small.

Don't worry too much about the "specifications" on the wiki - a lot of the time that stuff is wishful thinking by a bunch of anally retentive wikifiddlers.

OpenStreetMap Carto v2.22.0 almost 2 years ago
