## Why ajft? @ Adrian Tritschler · Monday, Jan 1, 0001 · 2 minute read · Update at Jan 1, 0001 ·

Well they’re my initials, and as far as I can tell I’m the only ajft on the WWW…. If you’re after a photo of me, here’s a copy of my Monash staff photo from about the end of the 20th century.

My FoaF file gives all the boring details:

I have managed to find a couple of other AJFTs out there in the world.

• G-AJFT was a british-registered Vickers Viking 1B aircraft, registered to Airways and Air Safaris.
• In the game Alien 3, the cheat code AJFT-AA66 enables you to Never lose radar.
• if you manage to mistype AJFT as AJFD you’ll probably end up somewhere with the Apache Junction Fire Department

# …The Owner

There’s not much more I can add to who I am.

# …The Site

I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.

Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried php, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on emacs org-mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is org-mode and hugo.
