Man these guys are fast! It seems to be a week for the Peregrine, yesterday there was an article about a nest and chicks on a city apartment block and photos on page 5 of both the big and the little newspapers; then today as we were driving out of the street I saw one hurtle past overhead. I think it must be the same one that I saw a few weeks ago in Oakleigh East as I was riding home, and some months ago chase pigeons over our house.
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.
