Peter 's Homepage

Hi! I'm Peter, and you're on my homepage. It's an old phrase, but this place is my home, my own little corner on the vast internet. It's been around since 1999, had numerous domains, designs, and iterations. I'm trying to encourage people to have their spot on the web as well.

About this site

What is on the site

There is a mix of content on this page:

  • tinkerings with linux, embedded, internet things are under the IT section
  • travels & longer braindumps are under journal
  • photos in photo
  • while notes contain replies and miscellaneous entries

The technical parts

At this point in time, it's mainly a static HTML website, generated from Markdown + YAML frontmatter files with Python, plus a couple of PHP scripts for search and proper redirecting. This is a result of a long process, which process is more or less documented under entries in IT. The engine is hidden in plane sight.

Special thanks to:

The retro bits

The site has a slight fascination with reminiscence of obsolete technology; therefore it provides a gopher version of the site, and an NNTP server that serves the contents of the RSS feed.

About me

I consider email to be my main contact point: mail@petermolnar.net, but I also have a couple of instant messenger accounts: XMPP, WhatsApp, and a gazillion forgotten ones, which are dead or simply not worth listing. I regularly lurk on Freenode, as petermolnar, especially in the #indieweb channel. This site also accepts webmentions, but only on the entries themselves.

I still have a Flickr account, my photos are cross-posted there. I also have Twitter, but that is only for ephemeral conversations, and all my tweets get deleted after 3 months.

I'm from Hungary, living and working in Cambridge, UK. Linux sysadmin by day, oriental martial studies practitioner on some weekday evenings. I'm happily married to Nora who shares more of my interests I thought possible, including most of my rather complex musical taste (which ranges from EBM through metal and rock to 90s trance and some impossible to categorize ones) and my love for photography.

People and sites I read

I maintain a list of sites/people I read (a.k.a blogroll) over here - it's an OPML file, so one can import it into their feed readers.
