Site-Status Update

lighttpd logoI reported some days ago that this page is not being generated dynamically online anymore. It is just static HTML!

I am generating all code offline. But since I love features like "comments", I decided to use a third party service for that. I registered an account at Disqus because it provides the most simple user interface. I hope you will accept and use this feature even though data is being stored on external servers not managed by me. Maybe I will develop an comment option via a cgi-bin directory in the future but at first I will stay at Disqus...

The server is now running lighttpd. thttpd doesn't provided enough features. Lighttpd seems to be a good choice for my requirements. It is a very small, fast and easy to configure webserver with a lot of features.

PHP and MySQL is NOT installed on this host anymore... ;)

May the Force be with You

I found this in the ./images directory of today and thought it must be online again... ;)

Time for changes...

I am restructuring this site and the server it is running on at the moment. I moved the site to a new server today. No script languages, database servers etc. anymore! Everything is being generated offline to static HTML since some days!

This website is just a mirror off what I am running on my local system. No backups of the server needed anymore, jehaaa!

The webserver underneath this website is thttpd at the moment but it is just an experiment. I am leaving the era of dynamic webpages so I don't have any need for software like Apache anymore. thttpd is great but I am missing some features. I will give lighttpd a try in the next days.

The RSS and Atom feed has been moved. Update your readers! Maybe they will come back to the old place later but at the moment I don't care.. The problem is, that I could not configure thttpd to read index.rss files like reading index.html automatically in a directory context. It is not a big problem but some more features would be great.

I will publish the state of the server here and will then explain how and why the final solution looks like it is... ;)
