It passed like a blur at times, like a glacier at others. From zero to one in twelve months. From a baby to a toddler, albeit a toddler who doesn’t quite toddle… yet.
Two more weeks before I manage to make time to myself to even write this up, two weeks since one year since 2008-May-06.
New beginnings, a change in work arrangements with both of us working three days a week and me working one of those three at home.
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.
