About this site / server
The site is a gemini site, proxied over to HTTP(S) using :

The content is hosted at home on a shelf and not in a big data centre somewhere in the cloud. The name of this server is Bertrand.
Why Bertrand ?

I have a Fibre connection on Free in Paris, France. Generally it's quite fast, but of course since this is hosted on a single geographic connection, it will vary depending on where on this planet you are.
Also, with anything self-hosted, it is prone to falling offline randomly.
DNS is hosted by Hurricane Electric (HE) for cd.ax and jw.rs, gemini.is still lives over on CloudFlare (but probably not for long).
