A bit of information about this website

About this Website

This is a static website that uses Zola as a site generator and is currently hosted at netcup. It contains no uneccessary divs, spans and no JavaScript, the CSS is 100% handwritten by myself and it attempts to use semantic html wherever possible.

This website does not generate any income and is used for personal purposes only.

The light mode doesn't look like a slatecave at all/is ugly?

The light mode exists because I want other to offer me my preferred colour palette, too. Also there are plenty of reasons why someone would want a light mode. So I attempted to make one while trying to minimise the use of eye-burn white. Good news is that because this website doesn't rely on black CSS + div magic you can load in almost any off the shelf stylesheet you want or use your favourite reader mode!


I usually test this site with recent versions of

The browser I use for almost all my webbrowsing anyway.
Open source chrome with still too much google crap builtin.
Dillo (not anymore)
A small simple and fast browser with limited CSS capabilities. The project has died, unfortunately.
Is a browser for the Terminal that only speaks html and is really fast (perfect for almost non-existent mobile internet), its also very good at visualising markup mistakes.
Another terminal based browser, also very fast and good at finding broke markup.

You are wasting how much on images !?

I know, I'm not proud of it but I like some decoration on my site and I'm trying to get the images smaller. Also I'm trying to keep the uncompressed size below 100KB and make use of your Browsers cache.
