## End of lease day

Sunday, Apr 16, 2000

I got to Kay & Burton’s office at 9:30 am since the letter from them stated that the keys must be returned by 10 am. Discovered that the office isn’t open on a Sunday until 10:00 am, so I had breakfast first and then dropped keys and papers off at 10:45 am. Justin – the agent – is on the desk and states that the final inspection will be done tomorrow – monday – and that my bond should probably then be deposited into my account on Monday or Tuesday.

# …The Owner

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.
