This is going to mostly be a journal entry on the topic of journals. Diaries of other people, journals + me and how we fit together.
First off, I'd like to (sort of) feature the following diary
. It's the old diary (1998 to 2005) of Telsa Gwynne (she's Welsh, I should think). She's the wife of Alan Cox, one of the best-known Linux kernel developers (slash geeks and outstanding programmers) of our time. She has a quite succinct and brief style, and an excellent sense of humour. You're going to love it if you or a close person around you falls into one of categories "geek", "spouse/partner of geek"! It's also _the_ oldest example of a blog/journal sort of thing I've ever seen on the Internet.
There's also the thing about me and diaries/blogs/journals. My dear Maladikta
suggested a skin for me to use, which is gorgeous and can be found at ginkgografix.deviantart.com/ar…
. What she does not know, however, is that I have a special thing about journals - I like mine in retro-hacker style, green-on-black. The skin I've used for this post actually combines that color scheme with a rather good aesthetic, simple piece of art. I don't know why, I just enjoy this colour scheme very much. Mind you, I'll probably use the White Rush skin for one of my next entries
. (Update: Yeah, I definitely will be using the aforementioned. I wanted the text to be green as well. I guess that what I really want is a perfectly simple html pages collection which I can *MANUALLY* edit and organize using the command line on Linux or Notepad on Windows, then I will be happy. Easy to please, ain't I?)
