New theme, new server, a few ideas

I’ve just moved server for this blog from Joyent to Linode. The shared accelerator server on Joyent was really quick at the start but has been slow of late.  I’ll be slowly moving my other sites over, but since it is a VPS, if it slows down it will be my own fault. So far it has been pretty cool running a VPS but it is not for the faint-hearted.

I haven’t been blogging of late, something my nephew picked up (thanks Michael), and there are various reasons. The biggest two are probably procastination and lack of inspiration.  (other factors are facebook, twitter and flickr).  So I had a think about it and wondered in the gaps between posts what I would have written.  What things or topics have happened in my life that were worthy of a blog post.

From now on I will try to write about those things (hence the sub-title).  A partial list includes photography, in particular strobism, inspiration or positive takeaways from meeting up with friends, football and geek stuff like being stucked into vim.

Oh and the blog has a new theme by WooThemes called Mainstream.  I should mention that I took out the link at the bottom, not because I want to hide the fact but because it just stood out so much.  I do intend on adding back a text link when I get the time.

Email problems resolved

Sorry if any of you have tried to reach me through email and have it bounce back to you, I had some serious email problems lasting about a week.  I’ll spare you the long and frustrating story.  Suffice to say that the problems have been at long last resolved so you sent me a message to have it bounce back, please send it to me again.  Thank-you.

Expect some serious breakage

I’ll be doing some behind the scenes maintenance on the site so expect some breakage in the next few days. Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

And Happy Chinese New Year!! Kung Hei Fat Choi!!
