Last October I forgot to mention the birthday of this blog. It’s well in its fifteenth year now, and as always, one post per day, one Image of the Day 😃
It’s silent here and I write largely into the void. Since the last iteration of the build system, the blog is completely static. No database, no tracking, no visitor counters, no nothing. You can comment, I get the comments by mail, and if you leave an email address, I get that as well. If not, I don’t. To most comments I reply, but it’s clear that this effort is moot. You don’t get automatic notifications of answers to your comments and there is no comment feed that you could subscribe to.
Why? I don’t have to worry about GDPR compliance, you don’t have to endure adverts and neither do I sell you anything, no do I sell your data to anybody. Solitary peace of mind.
