The blog you are reading now is the result of my obsession with creating a website onthe smallest and cheapset server available.
The server/computer used is the original raspberry pi which has 256MB of RAM and a 700Mhz single core CPU.
All of the web server software that I was familiar with was bloated for what I needed on the PI, until I found out about the mako server. This server is the smallest and fastest webserver that I have seen.
I wanted my blog to be immune to security problems which means that I need to use static html pages with no database back end.
