So, 2019 is almost over. I didn't get around to do much indexing, as I had to focus on my other projects, but I did get around to getting some optimizing done on the site. I think this site is destined to be something I only work on occasionally... but who knows, sometimes your focus in life changes rapidly.

Continuing the considerations about tracking and profiling visitors, I just can't be a part of that anymore. It has become too widespread and invasive for me to want to participate. So, out goes Google Analytics on the site. Hopefully things will change, or I find an acceptable alternative, but the way things are right now, I just don't want to be a part of all that tracking and profiling of visitors.

Removed all the Google ads. Right now there's a war going on between sites putting a ton of ads on their pages and the increasing use of adblockers, and it appears that there is some unsavory business going on with adblocking software whitelisting some ads, for a prize. The only way to win this war is by not participating, so I'm out. There is also the matter of the excessive tracking and profiling going on right now. I don't mind companies like Google and Facebook making money on ads, but IMO, things are getting out of control. Maybe there's another way to make money on websites.

Did a bit of SEO optimization. Not sure it helps, but a bit of spring cleaning on the site is probably a good idea.
