We had a really big fail on White Water Writers this week. Since June last year a (low priority) project has been to add ‘promotional’ chapters to the end of the White Water Writers books. You’ll have seen such chapters before. They normally look like this: …and add a characteristic look to the spine of […]

Where all our files are

This is mostly a post for people internal to equality time but it costs nothing to make it open. There is now a guide to our filesystem availible as a Google Document. Some initial notes: in general we divide our files by three levels of access: Files that only trustees and CEO can see, like […]

Funding Application to Amazon

This week we applied for the Amazon Literary Partnership with White Water Writers We think we’ve got reasonably good odds: we tick all of the listed boxes. We’re also quite heavily involved in the Amazon Ecosystem (we publish our books there and we host the code on the Amazon Virtual Machines so we’re a fairly […]

Sequels, adaptions and so on.

We’ve been asked a sensible question by email so I’m putting our answer here for the next time someone asks the same sensible question: Can I use the novel I wrote with you guys and the team(as part of White Water Writers) as the basis for future work I do? Like writing a sequal or […]

Improvements to White Water Writers eBooks

An exciting part of this year’s accounts was that we prepared them ourselves and had them independently examined, this: Saved us a reasonable amount in accountants fees Meant that there is a much closer relationship between the accounts we submit and the internal state of our […]

New Flowers For Turing Website

One of the small projects of the last few months has been the complete rebuilding of the Flowers For Turing website. It started as a small migration project – I’m a bit unhappy with our current webhost and wordpress in general so I wanted to move it to Github Pages site. Of course, while actually […]

Having a problem with Amazon pay by invoice?

This is one of those posts to help people searching google for a particular problem, it’s not relevent to eQuality Time or it’s projects more generally. We have a credit line with Amazon so that we can pay by bank transfer (vital for charities that need two signitories on any outgoing spend). During the pandemic, […]

Instagram Influencers Influencing Co-Creation

Wow! What a REELY interesting and exciting start to the Fake News Project! Now, you may be a social media enthusiast, you may just think I can’t spell, or you may simply have missed my spelling ‘mistake’ in the past sentence. But actually there’s a reason for this ‘mistake’. Reels are an element of Instagram […]
