Figure 1. My largest readership comes from Sweden. However, the total number of readers from the rest of the world exceeds my Swedish readership. So, I suppose it might still be worthwhile for me to write in English.

I have had this site since 1995, but the oldest parts are in fact from 1994, which makes twenty years of personal presence on the web. I have thought about this for a while. For example, should I keep the site or just through it away and save a couple of hundred SEK per month?

I've discussed why before. After that, I decide to keep it several times a year. Whenever I pay the bill to my service provider.

At times I just don't care about the site. I'm up to something else. If people have problem with my material not being up-to-date, that's their problem. I don't care

Although I only periodically care for the stuff I keep here, I've thought about if I

  1. should continue with my current hosting and my own (home brewed) software.
  2. should stick to English as its main language, or return to my mother tongue Swedish?

However, now I feel that there are things that is more easy to discuss in my native language, and many of my readers should find my material more accessible. After all, Swedes are the largest single nationality visiting my site. However the total number of readers from the rest of the world exceeds my Swedish readership (Figure 1).

In short, expect more material in Swedish, but I will continue write in English whenever I expect that it is worthwhile.

This means that you shouldn't really expect any significant changes here..., and don't ask me why I use several hundred words for telling you why I won't make any substantial change.

My name is Sigfrid Lundberg. The stuff I publish here may, or may not, be of interest for anyone else.

On this site there is material on photography, music, literature and other stuff I enjoy in life. However, most of it is related to my profession as an Internet programmer and software developer within the area of digital libraries. I have been that at the Royal Danish Library, Copenhagen (Denmark) and, before that, Lund university library (Sweden).

The content here does not reflect the views of my employers. They are now all past employers, since I retired 1 May 2023.
