So, slashdot is good for something sometime!
The story New Robots Hunt Pirates by Sea, linking to a Popular Mechanics article is interesting enough, but as always, it is the comments that make the story. A quick read and the two that had me spraying coffee are:
Pirate Dread “We are the Dread Pirate Robots. There will be no survivors.”
If only we had a remotely-operated wheelbarrow… That would be something!
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.
