Adrian Tritschler's stuff
My website, an agglomerative mess, probably half-eaten by a grue
Two steps forward, one backwards. Typical computer upgrades.
The Debian to Ubuntu upgrade kind-of sort-of maybe mostly partly worked. I’ve been finding things that it didn’t upgrade, and things that it should have upgraded.
Nearly fully recovered from the failed experiment into Ubuntu, Debian has finally finished downloading all the packages that it wants to turn the machine back into a Debian “testing” box, and by choosing their 2.6.8-2-686-smp kernel, I’ve got my network card back.
Here we go, head first without first testing the depth! I’ve decided to try and upgrade from Debian to Ubuntu linux. All the arguments that seem to be raised all seem to apply. Debian unstable is too unstable. Debian stable is too old.
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.
