Adrian Tritschler's stuff
My website, an agglomerative mess, probably half-eaten by a grue
unintended security consequencesI used to always hit the screenlock on my mac as soon as I walked away, even if only for a minute or two. Then the security policies changed and we have to use the VPN for far more systems … but the VPN times out and disconnects if the screen is locked, which then needs account name, password, 2FA to reconnect. As a result, now I tend to leave my screen unlocked when I walk away for a few minutes
There’s not much more I can add to who I am.
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.
