If you use the uMatrix extension, you can see that the website does not use third party resources. Everything, including fonts and images, is served locally in order to ensure your full privacy. I would like to implement an open source analytics module like Matomo or Open Web Analytics, but currently I do not know how to do it.


The whole backend of the website is written using the Django framework and PostgreSQL database. Being a weekend coder this means a lot of issues that may appear. If you notice anything strange and you know how to solve it, please let me know.


Besides the Django web framework which serves as a backend for the website, Python may be used when doing some quantitative analysis. It will be mostly done using pandas and bokeh libraries.


In addition to the usual blog posts, you can find here some software and Firefox extension recommendations. They are aimed at improving your productivity, life quality and allowing you to battle the omnipresent surveillance and data snooping.
