Some site tweakings

I made two significant changes to the websites this week:

1.  I added a thing that rotates between the book covers on the Alliteration Ink site in the sidebar.  Let me know if it doesn’t work (or is slow, or annoying, or whatever) for you.

2.  I took out Google Analytics.  On both my personal website and on the Alliteration Ink site.

I realized that I didn’t need the trackers – nor did I particularly use them the way I was supposed to.  However, it did give more information to Google (and hence, to everyone who has access to Google’s data). 

Also it should speed up the site, but that’s actually a secondary benefit for me.

What do you think about online snooping?  Worth the convenience?  Or have you gotten yourself a GPG key yet and learned how to use it with your e-mail?
