In a bleary-eyed, early morning effort to clean up the GConf schema conflicts after upgrading the gnome-panel, I managed to trash enough of my system here to make a reinstall practically the only option. Restored bits from backups, but needed to rebuild GNOME2, which was a good chance to clean up and shed some cruft along the way. Managed to fall prey to my usual error of not letting SMTP through tcpwrappers, losing a good 90 or so messages (and angering several mailing list admins) in the process.
I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.
I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
