I’m a big fan of static sites and simple servers. These pages are generated by Zola and served by lightweight static file servers: the publicfile HTTP server for unencrypted connections, and my publicfile-inspired server for HTTPS and HTTP/2. I’ve tried to make things as simple as possible — so the site is fast for you, and cheap for me:
Everything except embedded videos is hosted right here, so you don’t have to wait for third-party content (or tracking devices) to load.
Everything is served directly from disk, gzip compressed, and never generated on the fly. So you don’t have to wait on some ailing database.
My website respects your privacy, does not set cookies, does not track you across the web, and logs your originating IP address only temporarily to help me diagnose network issues.
Posts related to the production and upkeep of the site are filed under colophon, so you can use that to get the latest updates if you’re curious.
