Well it was fun while it lasted, and the most fun of all seems to be the interpretations of the decision by Strava to disconnect Relive from accessing data:
Strava’s email to Strava/Relive users Many of us at Strava have enjoyed using Relive over the last few years, but because of Relive’s recent updates, unfortunately, we have decided to end this integration. The current version of Relive violates several of the terms that we ask of API partners.
Well the intention today had been to drive in to Stawell and ride out along the Grampians Rail Trail back towards Halls Gap, but circumstances conspired against us – a longer than anticipated hike up to The Pinnacle in the morning, a late arrival in Stawell for lunch and finding the town much larger and more spread out than expected.
Instead we decided to start heading back towards Melbourne straight after lunch, but to stop in Ballarat for a lap of Lake Wendouree.
Going AWOL at the top of Teddy's Lookout Escape for a couple of hours in the afternoon; out of the car port and straight down into town without time to warm up. Then ten kilometres of the climb up Benwerrin, I suspect that I’ll never again surpass my quickest time up the climb. Turn left at the top and today there are no march flies, then there’s a quiet ten kilometres or so along the dirt road along the ridge.
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.
