My website, an agglomerative mess, probably half-eaten by a grue
Spotify suggests that I let Leonard Cohen (rip) know that I listened to him most of all artists this year
Spotify seems to think I'm in South Australia, I keep getting University of South Australia and South Australian motorbike ads
Spotify just decided to play Roxy Music's [Virginia Plain] (<https://www.last.fm/music/Roxy+Music/_/Virginia+Plain>) for me. Last night RRR's Superfluity opened with the same track
Read an Ian Rankin Rebus novel, listening to a Rebus-inspired Spotify playlistSo much of the character of John Rebus revolves around his music, firmly places his age and style. Curiousity got me, a quick search and I found a playlist someone had created, whether of albums & songs mentioned, or just inspired by… of course now Spotify will think I’m an old boomer too from a day or two of the Stones, Black Sabbath, Nazareth, Velvet Underground and Joni Mitchell
Messing with Spotify analytics… by accidentFound a great way to mess with an app’s analytics – a friend sent me a playlist last week, I opened it in #spotify and listened for a while, didn’t like it, closed the laptop and went home. Came back on Monday to find it had played on repeat all weekend, so #spotify now thinks I really love all those songs
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.
