More fun and games with the Monash City Council. They responded to my email, claimed that they were collecting the rubbish, that the trolley contracters are the ones dumping things. They even helpfully gave me a couple of phone numbers to report future litter. I tried one this morning, since in the last 24 hours someone has dumped a trailer load of household garbage, a TV, a chair, garden cuttings, etc.
Damn. Spent way too long trying to get cwm running on the WinXP laptop only to get bitten by Windows. The authors have two files URI.py and uri.py in the same directory, Windoze still only allows the one.
Monash city council seem to be doing their bit to increase the amount of litter in the City of Monash. Someone had gone to a great deal of trouble to gather up the abandoned shopping trolleys that were lying in Gardiners creek and drag them to the side of the path.
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.
