Content and hosting update

I realize that new content has been relatively non-existent on this blog due to life and technical considerations. Life has been busy, occasionally fulfilling and oft times challenging, so much so that I’ve been neglecting the written word. On the other hand, my virtual life is somewhat active, whether that be in-game or in-Insta.

On the technical side of things, I’ve been deeply dissatisfied with my web host performance, so I’ve been tweaking things under the hood. I’ve moved away from Google Cloud for my web host VM since it just wasn’t priced competitively against AWS. I am sticking to Lightsail and their S3 storage service, and WordPress.com. Plus I’m dabbling in other services. Linode is my current favorite with their budget friendly yet robust Nanode plan. With a datacenter hosted out of Dallas, TX, I get speedy connections to my VM.

Winter indoors means nesting opportunities and more compute time. I hope to plan/execute
