Website Update

Why I have finally updated this website

After years of not touching it, I have updated this website. When I first created it in 2005, I wanted a space to publish short technical how-to articles and to share photos with my family.

The online world has changed beyond recognition since then, and the content on my website was thoroughly outdated. This is why I decided to remove all the old content and create a minimal web presence.

The trigger for finally tackling this task was a recent article in the ct magazine about pelican, a website generator which lets you write all the content in markdown notation and generates static web pages. Having only static web pages vastly reduces the attack surface of the website and eliminates the need to constantly having to worry about updates for a content management system.

For the time being, I'm not planning to regularly publish anything on this website, but this might change in the future.
