...no use. This is my personal playground and, until a recent OS upgrade at the weekend, I was running an installation of "Known" (and before that a heavily modified "Chyrp") But then PHP8.1 came along and screwed me up enough to dust off the software I had been working on and sort out it's issues. Which I mostly have.

This site will, as always, be available at my personal whim. "Age of the geek, baby"

I've had a number of blogs, sites, infodumps and everything online for around 25 years, this is just the latest in that long line.

My main blogs used to be based on a version of Chryp which I tried to continue maintaining after it ceased being active more widely about eight years ago, and though I added some really great functionality to it the product was desparetly showing its age. Casting around for alternative light-weight FLOSS solutions I found Known [1] so I've forked it to play with and see it will suit my current purposes.

Between 2006 and 2009 my blogs were build around the lightweight open source blogging platform Chyrp.

Originally created by Alex Suraci I wrote a number of extensions – known as 'modules' – which allowed for extra functionality. Although I now discover that there has been some activity on that platform more recently I have, instead, written my own system, mostly from scratch.

Though, naturally, I'm doing as all good designer-coders do and re-using some of my own old code!

As I've been having some problems accessing the main Chyrp site to update my modules there (and add a new one) then I've created a new page here (called [@Chyrp] natch!) with the details of what I've been up to and a place to download them from.

Guess this means that this site is going to have to become a 'real' one now rather than just my 'technological playground' and I shall have to leave my [@lj:alisonw] LiveJournal behind.

Oh dear … ;-P

In brief …

3 - 2 - 1 - Initiate! I'm developing some ideas and code to extend Chyrp. . .…
