Chipaca’s Miscellanea

en español


This is my corner of the web. There are many like it, but this one is mine.


In the beginning of time 1999 I had something like a blog / scrapbook thing on piquillin, the server for the Linux users’ group in Córdoba. At some point somebody decided I wasn’t active enough and deleted my user, so all that is lost.

A very long time ago I had a blog over on Blogger. Remember blogger? it’s still more or less alive, but my blog died. I’ve got most of the textual content, but the images and videos and styles linked or used from there are all broken or died (some, in particular the first sonogram of my boys, literally died in a fire). But some day I’ll get that one back up and link it here.

A slightly less long time ago I had a blog on Tumblr. That one still lives over in Some day I’ll pull it from tumblr and host a static version of it, before it too dies (in a fire or otherwise).

I stopped writing stuff at some point. I’m not sure if it was a series of burnouts, or overwork, or just too much stuff going on at the same time, or the microblogging tapping the itch to write into little bursts of content, or my creativity slowly getting replaced by bitterness and/or scepticism, or a combination of all of the above.

But now! I’m slowly finding my work/life balance again. I’m working as a full-time developer rather than a manager meaning I’m not drained to the bone at the end of every day but rather often fizzing with creative energy. Life is still

complicated and interesting and there’s still too much stuff going on at the same time but it’s less technical death metal and more latin jazz.

So I’ve ran out of excuses to not write again, and writing is good for me.

So what I’m going to try to do is get back into this. This time I’ll host it all myself so it’s my own fault if things stop working (when I break it, I get to keep the pieces!). I’ll try to keep it bilingual, also. I’ll have comments at some point but otherwise you can reach me via the usual places.

Here goes nothing.
