# NEW HOMEPAGE: FRONT TO BACK
I have had my own webpage since 2002 (a-d-c.dk, cs.au.dk/~adc,
adamsgaard.dk). I use a webpage as a place to keep my contact
information, software, notes, and research. The previous iteration
was inspired by the 2015 April 1st retro-version of of gentoo.org,
bringing back memories of the computing of yesteryear.
The previous backend was a Debian GNU/Linux virtual machine, first
running at home and then in the cloud. It dynamically served the
pages with Apache and PHP. However, PHP is notoriously insecure,
as evident by the extensive list of vulnerabilities. Apache is
not much better.
This weekend I finally made the long-overdue transition to a static
web page, which improves security and performance. The backend is
an OpenBSD instance at a cloud provider. There's a plethora of
free static hosting providers available, but I prefer running and
maintaining a server myself. The SSL certificate is provided by
Let's Encrypt. The html front end is generated using Hiltjo
Posthuma's saait and stagit.
I am keeping the retro theme, but all CSS is reduced to a bare
tracking. It is also 100% compatible with terminal browsers.
I moved all of my personal software projects to my own git server
at https://src.adamsgaard.dk. I do not trust corporations like
Github (Microsoft), Gitlab, Sourceforce, etc., to always act in the
users' best interest. However, for the time being I will continue
to contribute to other software projects on these platforms.
My git server has a web interface which provides an overview of
projects, commits, and files. Git access is possible through git
(read only) and ssh (r/w) protocols.
Please let me know if you encounter any problems with the new
