Welcome to my bit of the Maison de Stuff, home to a huge load of pictures, and my daily blog.

My email address is as above - I've put it in an image in a vein attempt to reduce the amount of spam I get.

About two years ago I set up a domain for Chie, and for most of that time it has gone pretty much unused. That is, until I recently set up the picture categories bit of my site, and I realised I had an easy way to have an automatically updated page for Chie. Every time I add a new set of pictures, I assign it to one or more categories. There's then an index page maintained for each category. It was only a simply modification from there to have an RSS feed also generated for each category. This means the main page of can just read the relevant RSS feed from the 'Maison, and use that to build an index page of pictures with Chie in, ordered by most recent updates. There's something deeply satisfying about knowing I can make changes on one site, and those changes, if relevant, will automatically propogate to another site.
