Meta-update and GNU epsilon news2012-08-29 23:33

This little diary of mine needed some love. A good excuse to motivate myself to write more often comes from the idea of syndication in the GNU Planet (<>); to make that possible without adding off-topic stuff to the GNU site I’ve recently improved trivalblog to also support per-tag RSS and Atom feeds — the idea being, of course, to have only posts explicitly tagged as “gnu” linked from the planet. My little blog system is described in The trivialblog software (<>). It’s just a quick unpolished hack with no documentation built upon bash and Texinfo, but I find it [...] Read more

I’ve seen from the server log that some people are looking for updates (thanks!). Since the post I’m writing now is not over yet, let me give you just an idea of what I think I will add soon: • Against identity — about the conflict between identity and culture, if you will. This will touch nationalism, sports fans, politics and religion. • The World-Wide Web and the fun of programming — Since its writing I softened a little the language of the first post: there I attacked the web, in the first version quite violently; but before using strong [...] Read more

I’ve been remembering the Latin phrase Nulla dies sine linea (no day [shall pass] without [writing] a line) for years now. Until a couple of minutes ago I was sure it was a motto by Gabriele d’Annunzio(1) (1863-1938), who despite the sheer beauty of some of his prose and poetry was quite revolting as a person — the kind of artist that you cannot quite declare you admire without adding all sorts of qualifiers and disclaimers. Annoying but necessary. You know, it’s about your reputation, and here I’m not kidding: that guy was a lot worse than just a histrionic [...] Read more

The trivialblog software2011-09-08 08:45

I’ve written the software running this blog myself, in Bash; in fact it’s mostly a simple combination of GNU command-line utilities, producing completely static HTML. Texinfo renders the post source text into HTML; my scripts generate indices, links and other minor things. I will probably add a PDF export feature later. I’ve put together the software very quickly, for myself; the source is crude and there’s no documentation, but since I guess somebody might want a copy anyway I’m publicly releasing it. trivialblog is free software, released under the GNU GPL version 3 or later. Most icons were not drawn [...] Read more

I have rough ideas about what I’d want to write about, but I don’t really know with what frequency I will touch each topic. I’m mostly interested in free software, (computer) languages and Computer Science in general, art, literature and politics; but I make no promise of staying on-topic. I will also not be necessarily “balanced”, soft or cautious when expressing my opinions. This is my site (by the way I pay hosting costs myself, with my money) and as such it is the appropriate place for holding my opinions. If you want to engage in discussion with me, there’s [...] Read more
