Bay Area Fun Stuff

Well it's taken me awhile to whip things into shape, but I believe I'm starting to make progress.

Care to jump to a particular year-list page right now? Take your pick! Hopefully you'll land somewhere interesting!


Still here? Well rather than stick with the originally created year-list pages just referenced as the only means of navigating this collection, I've also implemented yearboxes for faster navigation to specific dates.

Hovering over a date in one of the yearboxes following the Google Calendar will either show a preview popup for the underlying event linked to that date, should that page exist, or a namespace URL if no page exists for that date.

Hope you think it's a worthwhile addition!

Google Calendar

If you browse this site, you'll notice that I get out a lot. Wondering what there is to do in the greater San Francisco Bay Area? My “Bay Area Fun Stuff” calendar represents a cross-section of music-focused events that I think are worthy of attention – you'll notice an agenda view embedded below.

Prefer to see the calendar on it's own web page? No problem! Click here!

If you'd like to see these events in your personal google calendar instead of visiting this page or the link in the previous paragraph, you can subscribe to the calendar and then format things the way you like by taking the following steps:

  1. Copy this link by right-clicking and selecting “copy link address”
  2. To the right of Other calendars, click the drop down arrow > Add by URL.
  3. Paste the ICAL link from step 1 into the open field > click Add Calendar.

Got it? Good!

Getting back to business, here are the yearboxes promised earlier.


The 2017 event list presents the same information, but in an expanded format that you might find easier to work with than the yearbox below.

The 2013 event list presents the same information, but in a semi-expanded format that you might find easier to work with than the yearbox below.

Older years

Until I get around to adding more pages for the events listed for 2012 and earlier, I don't see much point in putting in yearboxes, since most of the links won't point to anything besides a 404 page.

<del>Important</del> Status Notes

Quick review of dokuwiki documentation suggests that the yearbox defaults are a MUCH better solution to organizing lots of pages than my old, flat namespace. This moves the issue along to that of how to move the current docs to the new namespace while retaining links to the old names (in case anyone bothered to bookmark them) – more particularly, the links in my annual list pages need to connect to the new namespace scheme too! Not too hard, but certainly a lot of manual work to fix up. So this action is PENDING or IN PROGRESS.

Default yearbox page linking is to [optional root namespace for the calendar, such as 'events']:YYYY-MM:[optional constant filename prefix, such as 'day']-YYYY-MM-DD; in other words, for a new directory/namespace each month. Assuming this blog will proceed indefinitely, it seems to me that tying the root to the year is a good notion, since that will separate the spaces nicely as the years accumulate. The final question to resolve then is whether a higher level root is needed to contain the years, or whether leaving them at the dokuwiki data root is good enough. Hmmn. Need to look at the underlying file structure and strap on my thimking kap (or maybe my icicle helmet).

The Thimking says something good is about to happen! Thanks to Aka Tombo Millinery for posting this image online for me to mutate
