When I started this site decades ago, I followed the usual path at that time to launch sites, shared hosting.

I registered the domain, settled on a small vendor for $5/month, got my cPanel and terminal login — Continue reading Β»

JAMstack - How To Make The Web Slower

    πŸ“‚ Web     # ,     πŸ—¨ No Comments

Starting a few years ago everywhere you look, sites are getting updated with a new approach known as JAMstack. JAM, initials for JavaScript, API, and Markup is lauded as more revolutionary, more scalable, speedier, and more flexible than the older style website development. Some of these claims may be true but for the most part — Continue reading Β»

Goodbye to Pingdom

    πŸ“‚ Web     #     πŸ—¨ No Comments

I have used the free Pingdom service for nearly 9 years to monitor the health of this site. Over the years it has been a helpful service and at times they would add even more useful features. Then came 2014 when SolarWinds, a public-then-private-then-public company catering to businesses with their analytics products and services, acquired — Continue reading Β»

The GDPR Mess

    πŸ“‚ Business,Internet,Law,Web     # ,     πŸ—¨ One Comment

With GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) being in full force since May 25, 2018, one must assume that the privacy and security of users are now fully protected.

HTTP to HTTPS Migration

    πŸ“‚ Google,Internet,Web     #     πŸ—¨ No Comments

A universally secure internet may have its defenders and detractors but like it or not, Google is going to force site encryption (https) across the board.
