“Where are our loan documents?” we ask the bank. “Oh,” says the bank, “Don’t you have them yet?” “NO.” “Ah, we’re sending them right away, Express Post, in fact.”

Do not trust the bank. Do not trust any bank. Jump up and down and stay on top of the bank or they will not do things that they should do. Remember this.

Then after ten minutes filling out an online quote form with Grace removals, I finally get to the end and hit submit, only to be confronted by:

Microsoft Excel error '800a03ec'
/message.asp, line 40


Magnificent advertising for both Grace removals and Microsoft — so much for one online quote! Next removalist please…

# …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.
