Why did I wake up so early ? The last three days I’ve slept really well, but this morning it was again, wide awake and listening to a loud annoying blackbird that decided to warble away until daylight. and the trains start, and you can just start to hear the traffic on Warrigal road. and I gave up and got up and had breakfast. Maybe its the contrast to the quiet at mum and dad’s place, maybe I’m just all slept out and don’t need any more sleep. I sure hope so.

My website, an agglomerative mess, probably half-eaten by a gru
Vanity site? Technology experiment? Learning tool? Blog? Journal? Diary? Photo album? I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you…
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.
Its all been here a fairly long time. Like the papers on my desk, or the books on the bedside table, the pile just grew… and it all grew without much plan or structure. I try not to break URLs, so historical oddities abound.
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.
