The content in this site typically has something to do with me, Jay Little. As you may have guessed, I own and run this site. On this site you can find out a lot of things about me by just poking your head about and seeing what pops up. If you have any questions please feel free to email me and I assure you that I will make an attempt to address your concerns.
If you are wondering, here is what I currently look like.
This site exists because back in 2001 when I registered the domain name as a birthday present to myself, I was egotistical enough to believe that people should care what I have to say about any ole little thing that popped into my head. It remains online today for a few reasons:
The code powering the website serves as a current and maintained example of the kind of work I can do which prospective employers can peruse at their leisure
The internet has become increasingly segmented into various platforms with various rules for what can and cannot be said. This place serves as my personal refuge from all of that
I'm now old enough and wise enough to be grateful that anybody at all cares what I have to say about anything. All I really hope to do now is to help inspire more people to host their own blog somewhere rather than relying exclusively on social media platforms to communicate with the world around them
That having been said, I do keep web server logs for a period of 90 days. I also generate stats against those logs on a daily basis using the open source GoAccess tool. These web server logs are typical and they log the following information:
- Date / Time
- IP Address
- Browser User Agent
- URL of Resource Request
- Response HTTP Status Code
- Response Size
That's it. If any of that bothers you, I'd suggest getting off the web immediately or at least taking some steps to up your web browsing game by employing the use of a VPN service and a browser that doesn't communicate with Google like Brave. If this doesn't work for you (and it may well not) then I recommend that you try Firefox instead. If you choose Firefox, you'll need some reputable extensions like uBlock Origin to round things out.
This page has been rendered using a web application of my own creation known as the Presentation Engine. It is an ASP.NET MVC application written in C# which targets the latest available .NET framework. Needless to say, since the website is in active development, feel free to email me with any issues that you may run into. This website should work on all major browsers which adhere to standards (e.g. Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Safari). If you are using a different browser like say IE (regardless of version) and the website doesn't work well then you have my sympathy.
This application was developed using only open source tools.
- For .Net work I use Visual Studio Code
- For image work I use Krita
- For an Operating System I use Fedora Linux
