## Uptime downtime @ Adrian Tritschler · Saturday, Oct 4, 2003 · 2 minute read · Update at Oct 4, 2003 ·

123 days uptime, reset back to zero. All courtesy of CitiPower I guess. Damn, after checking logs, maybe the machine didn’t crash, maybe just the video and keyboard disappeared… Maybe its time to upgrade wyvern’s kernel since I’ve no incentive now to keep it running!

Busy day. I must be getting over whatever it was. After a slow start in the morning I ended up spending most of the afternoon spring cleaning — we now have the cleanest springs in the street. Paid Mr Tax Man, paid a pile ‘o bills, put away a month’s worth of receipts and papers, threw out a bunch of old magazines, consigned another assortment to a well-ordered pile hidden under the spare bed. Even threw out some well-loved, but unworn-in-the-last-decade clothes.

Out walking this afternoon, another taxi (registration ST-1531) drove past with the driver merrily smoking in his cab, pausing to flick the lit cigarette out the window as he turned into the Rydges hotel to pick up passengers. I wonder how many of them don’t smoke in their cabs? Maybe its time for another letter to the EPA and the Taxi directorate … maybe not, its pointless, all the drivers break the laws and break the rules, everyone knows it, the Taxi directorate takes complaints and does stuff-all with them.

# …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.
