As I was sitting in the aircraft on the ground at Frankfurt I got to see the way that Lufthansa staff handled my bicycle. The box came down the ramp with the other oversize luggage and the handler attempted to pick it up by wrapping his arms around it length-ways rather than use the hand-holds cut into the sides of the box. Since his arms couldn’t quite reach around it and it slid out of his grasp he just threw it across the ground onto the trolley.
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.
