pages were a prototype of an auto-page generation tool I
wrote for image-based webpages in Common Lisp. The idea was
to enable people that don't understand markup languages to
generate and maintain photo-based websites by editing config
files with a simple syntax. It is more difficult than
point-and-click flickr type interfaces, but more powerful as
well. It has been done many times since then commercially
by others (Wix comes to mind).
- I am experimenting with this site all the time, so things
are occasionally broken. By all means, if you see something
wrong, drop me a line.
- There are a few pages requiring SSL for connection. These
use my self-signed SSL certificate which I never registered
with one of the third-party signing agencies — and don't
intend to after I found out what they charge — (way
outside my fooling around budget). My certificate works fine
and so will SSL. If your browser whines about it, its telling
you is that:
Don't get excited. SSL encryption still protects against
man-in-the-middle attacks. And anyway, what's the worst that
could happen here? You're not entering any information of your
own that could be exploited.
- My cert isn't unrecognized by any third-party signing
- It's probably out of date,
- The name may not match, since I'm lazy and using the
same cert for several subdomains; you're supposed to have a
separate one for each.
