Migratory Fowl

It’s been a bit quiet here because this month I’ve started on a long-overdue project: Migrating the webserver to a… new webserver. I’ll try to sum up.

It’s Almost Like I Know What I’m Doing

I just completed an important and long-neglected task: The backups for my webserver have been reinvented and improved. This isn’t to say I haven’t been making backups previously, mind you! I had a (somewhat) cumbersome system of weekly tarballs and nightly rsync-over-ssh jobs going on. It was a bit I/O intensive, though. The opposite of …
