December 28, 2019: I have been doing a lot of thinking about what to do with this site and the sister site WeirdSpace.info. There is still a need for resource sites like this one, but based on the websites I have in both Danish and English, the content of the two WeirdSpace sites have to be restructured. So, starting January, the .dk site will be transformed to a Danish site and the .info site will become an English site, i.e. the content in English will be moved to the .info site, and this site will feature the Danish translations. The Danish part of the .info site will be moved to the .dk site and restructured a bit. I'm sure this restructuring will cause some difficulties, due to some things I haven't considered, and also some confusion, but the changes are needed.


November 19, 2019: 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.


October 13, 2019: 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.


March 29, 2019: Did some SEO optimization and spring cleaning of the site. Something had gone horribly wrong with the mark-up, but it was the kind of fuck-ups that only get caught by some test procedures, so it had flown under the radar.
