Birrarung Marr is a new park on the banks of the Yarra, “Melbourne’s first new park in 100 years.” Opened officially on Australia day in 2002. Nobody seems to know about it yet, maybe next summer when Federation Square is open people will come through there and down to the river.
After months of talking about it, one , Jo and I walked along the river from Richmond and explored what there was to see. Most striking is the Federation Bells, but they’re only played at 8 am and 5 pm, so we couldn’t hear what they sound like.
One final look at the city skyline from the park.

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.
