I strive to optimise this blog's performance as well as I can. But chasing a goal of a lightweight website while keeping it pretty prevented me from realising the obvious truth that the most performant assets are… no assets.
So, inspired by Sijmen J. Mulder's directory of text-only websites, I decided to create a bare version of my blog.

Easily share content...
Need to send someone a nicely formatted text accessible via a simple link? Look no further. Simply add text, headers, images, tables, videos, quotes, code, etc. – and publish it with one click.
No need to run a blog or have a social media account – using showr you can put content on the Internet without registering, and just post the link wherever and however you want.
With a self-destruct...
Sometimes you want things to be more volatile. Showr lets you set a time limit and limit of unique visitors – after either of them is reached, your content will just self-destruct.
