## Maybe a netbook? @ Adrian Tritschler · Monday, Jun 1, 2009 · 1 minute read · Update at Jun 1, 2009 ·

Yes, no, maybe? All the little 10" netbooks are attractive, but it seems that the more I look into it the more my options diverge, rather than converge to a model that I’m happy with. US prices on assorted models seem to be:

Model $US Samsung NC10$399
Dell Mini 10 $349 Asus 1000HE$385
Acer Aspire one $349 MSI Wind$329

Australian prices range from $550 to$800 as far as I can tell, with a lot more variation.

# …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.
