James wrote a list of 100(-ish) things you can do on your personal website and here are a few more!

As part of an IndieWeb joke years ago, we said that status code 309 should be returned if the link ends with /8675 (combined, 867-5309 might ring a bell, but if not, don’t change your number). I took it a step further and also displayed a picture of Jenny from Forrest Gump:
