Wasting time as usual I spotted a reference to http://30daysofbiking.com/ and being a sucker for registering on yet-another site decided to give it a go … well five days a week is easy, that’s just commuting, the hard bit will be finding time, nay, making time, on the weekends and over the Easter break to go out for a ride..
Now how am I going to do this? Probably just twitter updates, and maybe a photo or two into the Flickr group.
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.
