My website, an agglomerative mess, probably half-eaten by a grue

A cold morning again today — but Yass is renowned for being cold and windy! I left with thermals on under my jersey, but after the first nine kilometres of dirt roads had to stop to remove them, sweat was pouring off me!

I was expecting a very cold morning, thick fog, maybe even a frost…. It was cold, but not that cold. Even so, it didn’t stop the whinges and moans from the people from the coast! The temperature seemed to drop between waking up and leaving, maybe it was as the wind increased.

Rest days on tour when camping are a problem — I tried to sleep in past seven but the sun on the tent and beer in the bladder forced me up and out. Breakfast was a subdued affair, hangovers all around me from those out partying late, and grumpy comments from those who had come home early and then been woken by those out partying late.

Dark at 5.45 am, we are woken by Debbie’s loud hailer again. The stars are still out and there are bats flying around the floodlights catching the insects. I’m convinced that we really don’t need to be woken so early…

Dr Alan, Jeff, Ron, Jim and I rolled out at 8:15, fueled up on porridge and in good spirits. The pace was a little high and Ron left us to ride at a more comfortable one. Jeff and I moved to the front on the first of many short sharpish climbs.

By the time I arrived in Warragamba I’d catalogued a few more minuses to sitting in the back seat of the bus — the seat won’t recline, and it was right next to the toilet, luckily the latter just stank in a chemical, rather than biological, manner.
There’s not much more I can add to who I am.
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.
