Another , only nine hours in and it feels like death.

Something woke me around 03:30 this morning, then tossing and turning and Jo’s cold kept me awake. At 05:20 the garbage trucks came and commenced their not-allowed crashing and banging, at six o’clock I gave up and got out of bed.

Sat down at the desk to grind through some more of the woefully slow slug-like behaviour of Vista and file-synching from my main Linux PC and pop, there goes another light bulb. We seem to replace one or two of the three in the kitchen at almost monthly intervals.

To add to ’s woes and frustrations about the new ASUS F3JR laptop, today I find that they’ve mysteriously dropped $150$200 in price! Brand new, the model’s only been out a fortnight, what can you do? Oh well, grin and bear it.

One shining point rising above all of the crap; today is our fourth wedding anniversary! Flowers and fruit for the traditionalists, or the very boring “appliances” from some modern list. Oh wow honey, give me a new appliance…

# …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.
