Adrian Tritschler's stuff
My website, an agglomerative mess, probably half-eaten by a grue
Surprise again! Oakleigh station car park partly closed for crane work on shops – but blocking bike path againEvery time they take the easy way out, rather than leave a footpath width aisle at the south side of the car park to keep the Djerring trail open, they close off the entire end of the car park and force pedestrians and cyclists out to make their own way – either through the shopping centre on foot, or under it through the tunnel with bus, car and truck traffic.
like being back in Skyrail construction times, Djerring trail closed for a week, trucks roaring up and downHuge gravel trucks in and out of our street up onto the bike path, chain-link fence blocking access to the bike path. I think they’re removing the rest of the old signalling conduit and wiring and I guess doing some landscaping.
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.
