Every year the radio station RRR and Intrepid travel get together and have a trip somewhere in the world that’s a Triple-R trip — every year until now that is. For eight years enough people have signed up for it to be held, this year the time was right for Jo and I and the place looked right for Jo and I. We signed up, we paid our deposit, then yesterday we were told that the trip’s been cancelled.
We had a ball last year, so once again we’d crossed our fingers for good weather and headed off to the Junction oval to see the might of the 3RRR/3PBS megahertz face the Espy rock-dogs for the Sacred-Heart mission community cup.
Grandstand of the Junction oval at the 2006 community cup Beer, music, dogs and kids everywhere, exuberant and wildly inacurate football, inaudible sirens, highly suspect umpiring, variable-length quarters — everything the community cup is meant to be.
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.
