Amazing, after nine months we have a new water meter Tada! A card appears in the mailbox, “Your water meter has been exchanged”. Well how about that, amazing!
Now let me see, I first rang South East Water on May 10 but they didn’t seem to do anything until six months later when I got the “Call re. your recent enquiry” letter on October 10 then when I rang to make the booking for a meter replacement had the — “When will they come?
The latest water bill turned up and we seem to have stopped using water! I could have sworn that we’re both still washing, but for the May quarter only 3kl have passed our meter. Sounds bizarre to me, a mere 32 litres per day. Time to start checking the meter every day again — something I did when we first moved in since I was curious as to what we would use in a new house.
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.
