I’ve had a personal web site for over a quarter century.
It has been hosted in various places at various times,
but currently it is hosted on
Microsoft Azure. Azure bills for every byte of
data transfer and every CPU cycle, so I’ve reduced
content on the site for now in order to avoid being
bankrupted by Microsoft.
Yours truly coded this site completely from scratch.
It’s just straight LAMP (Linux, Apache,
MySQL, and PHP), and it is blazingly fast
There are no ads. There are no sponsors. I pay the cost
of running the site out of my pocket.
In terms of privacy, you’re safe here. There are no
sinister cookies in use. There are no tracing features.
This site doesn’t blab about you to any other other
sie, not even Google or Facebook. No
personal data at all is collected. For this reason,
there’s no GDPR declaration on my
site—there’s nothing to declare.
Unless I win the lottery or move the site to a cheaper
platform than Azure, some of the resource-consuming
parts of former incarnations of the site will have
to remain offline. The large photo galleries I used
to have, for example, are missing for now.
