## Famous Flickrage!

Tuesday, Jul 3, 2007

Looks like Schmap would like to use some of my photos for their next map about Melbourne, nothing special, but its the first time anyone has asked to use them! I guess I’ll see them on http://www.schmap.com/Melbourne if they do get used.

## Photographs into PyBlosxom

Sunday, Aug 20, 2006

A perl script to general PyBlosxom format text files, then a shell script to make the directory structure and call the perl for each day’s photos: for m in seq 1 7; do for d in 2006/0$m/??; do ./pybexif$d; done; done;

## An Owl a day

Monday, Jun 12, 2006

Its amazing how much wildlife there is around the suburbs, hidden away in the trees and bushes — wildlife that only comes out at night, or when everything is quiet and all the people have gone away. This is the second time in a fortnight that I’ve seen an owl, or as I discovered once I uploaded the photo from my camera, two owls1! At first I thought these were boobook owls, an identification that one semi-knowledgeable person confirmed.

# …The Owner

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

# …The Site

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.
