Riding to work on a quiet Monday morning, it’s a public holiday, there’s hardly anyone on the roads. Riding to work should be easy today… Then as I approached one of the mini-roundabouts in Haughton road there were not one, but two motorists driving around it towards me!
One driving in the conventional manner, on the left hand side of the road, clockwise when seen from above, at about 40-50km/hr.
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.
