@mike Wow this is great. Another reason to play with it. I always like BeOS back when it was a thing.
@tvdl Thanks for your question. You really have me thinking about this. I may write about this topic in greater detail, self-hosted vs. platforms might be of interest.
@tvdl GitHub/GitLab Pages is a great idea feature and I have even used it for a website, https://steephillfood.ca. However this all depends upon your circumstance. For me self-hosting is best because it allows for control and not someone or some company to dictate what I can and can't do. No one is more invested in your best interests than you yourself. As well I want to be transparent to my viewers, the less hands/services I use the easier it is by removing unnecessary complexities that they may bring.
My reasoning for choosing Jekyll, a static site generator (SSG).
@kev Very unique design of website. I'm curious did you intentionally not add the ability to comment on your posts?
Standard Ebooks looks like a pretty cool collection of public domain ebooks:

@ant LOL good one.
@jish Thanks, this is a pretty cool resource. Very nicely laid out.
