This is an ‘html-only’ version of Scribblings with no database behind it. This means it is not possible to search it. I am working on a new version with which I am hoping to eventually put back into the main site. The new version is here but please note that there is no link directly back to the main site.

Arguing with my phone
I have been playing around with Google Now’s voice interface. I once managed to tell it to ‘Meet Henry next Wednesday at 1pm until 4pm’ and it offered to put it in the calendar. Excellent. Trouble is that it now insists that the self-same words mean ‘Dick Henry…’ (which I really don’t want to do) or ‘Mint Henry…’. So I am now sitting here arguing with my phone. Which is either a sign of Being in the Future or one of rapidly developing senility.
Since moving the site to a new server Scribblings is not as easy to find your way around as it used to be. It used to depend on a script and a database on the server but is currently served as ‘flat html’.
I have some ideas about how to make it a bit easier but they depend on writing another script. I hope to get around to it ‘eventually’.
Searching Scribblings is not available at the moment.
