Broken Infrastructure

Never cross the demo gods.

Thou shalt not pray to Zeus for things your usual god would laugh at.

Shortly before my demo, I tinkered with the way I store the RDF that comes from my Palm data. In hindsight, this was clearly thumbing my nose at the demo gods.

They are spiteful and capricious. Some stuff broke. Nothing serious, but there are some metadata inconsistencies (for example, that every location is in the United States).

The right solution, I think, is to upgrade all my tools to Jena2. But that’ll take a few days, maybe longer.

Patience, please.
