Farewell, Node1 server.
Long live Node2.
Email has been on Google Apps for a couple weeks now with no problems, websites are all migrated to the new box, and nothing remains of any use on the old system. So, I just turned off and removed the Linode VM of the old server. Had to do it by month’s end or get dinged for another $75, so today was a good day to make that happen.
It’s always a bit of a downer, shutting off a server you worked so hard to build in the first place. But that’s the way of things.
