A hot day in Perth so we headed over to the zoo for the afternoon — as did every second person in the city!
A confusing place to get around, there didn’t seem to be any clear maps or directions and at times we found ourselves heading in the opposite direction to what we’d intended. Maybe you’re meant to pay more and buy the guidebook…
A thick screen of bamboo between the paths was completely covered in graffiti.
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.
