## OWW — One Wire Weather

Wednesday, Jun 21, 2006

A bit of magic with the one-wire weather station and RRDtool. The One-wire weather station from AAG Electronica June 2006 and I still have not mounted the weather station outside, so the information recorded is from it resting on the table near my PC. Despite the gaps under the door, there’s only temperature information, no wind speed or direction! Today’s data This week’s data This Month’s data

## Reboot resets rights

Thursday, Oct 6, 2005

Rebooted to start 2.6.12-1-686-smp.

The tty /dev/ttyS1 defaults to being unreadable by oww. I need to fix this.

## OWW, that didn't hurt

Monday, Oct 3, 2005

Now have oww running again. Downloaded an updated copy of oww (oww-0.81.7-1.i586.rpm), converted to DEB and installed it.

## Something's gone wrong again…

Tuesday, Sep 13, 2005

A couple of weeks after I transferred the weather station from wyvern to fafnir, this evening I accidently quit oww on fafnir. Tried to restart it and it complains that it can’t load libresmgr.so.0.9.8. Not really surprising, there’s no copy of libresmgr.so. on the machine!

## Weather station

Moved the weather station from wyvern to fafnir.

At first attempt, oww won’t compile, so I’m using the binary from the old system.

There’s not much more I can add to who I am.

# …The Site

Vanity site? Technology experiment? Learning tool? Blog? Journal? Diary? Photo album? I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you…

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.
