This website just got a new look (with mobile layout), a new web hosting, and a new technology that powers it. I’ll post the summary in the coming days. And otherwise, just enjoy fewer lags and 500 errors. (Except today when I accidentally routed the traffic to the wrong Load Balancer. >_<)
I’ll be writing separate posts about these migrations, but here’s what went where.
Website hosting moved from Rackspace Cloud hellscape of a single manually managed Gentoo Linux instance to Amazon Elastic Beanstalk. Apart from manually managing a VM, managing a Gentoo VM is its own special hell.
Image hosting moved to Google Photos. Especially since Google photos is not as much of a walled garden as it used to be.
Code hosting moved to my Github page.
Email filters. The server used to run an IMAP filtering script that was scanning my gmail inbox and sorting mail. I’ve created filters in Gmail interface instead.
Non-essential services have been happily shut down. And I hope you’re enjoying the new site and 0ms page load times. Shoot me an email if something’s not right.
