Around the beginnng of May 2016 my colleague Almut suggested to use hugo as website generator for the new mur.at page. Until then we were experimenting with pelican which I also had been using for this page before. At first I was quite sceptical because pelican seemed to do everything I/we needed just fine. But after some tests I truly fell in love with hugo and have created three (3) different sites within two weeks now.
Schon seit einigen Jahren hat sich abgezeichnet dass das Haus in dem ich wohne eine Fassadenrenovierung braucht. Vergangenen September hat dann ein Gutachter “Gefahr im Verzug” diagnostiziert und wenige Wochen später hatten wir ein sogenanntes Plateaugerüst rund um das Haus, damit Passant_innen nicht durch eventuell herabfallende Fassadenstücke verletzt werden können. Der schwierige Teil war dann die Ausschreibung des Bauvorhabens inklusive der Einholung von Angeboten durch Baufirmen. Hier hat sich unsere Hausverwaltung nicht gerade mit Ruhm bekleckert und der Verdacht auf Preisabsprachen wurde laut.
Partial Eclipse 2015
On March 20th 2015 a partial eclipse of our sun could be viewed from my home town. Badly prepared as always all I brought was my camera, but that is not enough to take pictures of such an event. Luckily a friend brought the inside of an old floppy disk (that was formlery used to install Debian). Placing this in front of the camera lens and manually adjusting focus to indefinite produced the images below.
Daily E. Ford enters the square on Monday August 12th 2013, few minutes past 1:30 pm. He chooses to set up the borrowed camp bed in the center of main square, facing city hall and thus the mayor’s office. He spreads his red towel on the camp bed and takes off his cloths. Wearing only his bathing suit he takes his place on the camp bed. The sun is covered by some clouds but it is warm enough to feel comfortable.
Daily E. Ford
Inspired by a friend’s friend, who’s name is Alex B. Connner (you notice the ABC, don’t you?) I hereby announce to call myself Daily E. Ford; every now and then. August 12th shall furthermore be known as Daily’s birthday from now on.
Video Composter is a tool to compost videos. It takes video files, cuts them into chunks of equal size and dumps them on a pile. A number of different agents ([ro]bots) continuously work their way through the video chunks and feed on the data. The original material is subsequently transformed (composted). On their way through the video files the agents produce entropy to be fed back to the pseudo random number generator of the host system.
