Woohoo, ride to work day! Um, I guess that’ll be just like any other day, except with Bicycle Victoria pumping their fists wildly in the air in the background.
As they asked, and as I replied, in their questionaire: How will you celebrate Ride To Work Day?:
The same way I celebrate every day, happy to be alive after the idiots in the tin boxes yabbering on their phones haven’t killed me.
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.
