Om nom nom!

That is correct…. Om nom nom! Last Thursday the 27th, as the coordinator of the project, I got to spend my day thinking “Om nom nom”. What project you say? I shall simply post these photos and let you decide.

If you’re wondering, there are 2712 Original Glazed Krispy Kreme donuts there folks.

Om nom nom! That is all.

New Hosting

Woot! I has new hosting!

Finally, the DNS updated at my ISP. I has a shiny new 512MB VPS slice from eNotch Networks.

Some pretty stats for your enjoyment (feel free to compare these to my previous host which I talked about)

Nice and shiny 100MB link there

Lots of memory! It can still be optimised because Apache is a pain in the rear, I’m thinking of using nginx to cut down that memory even more (of course, this is an OpenVZ container not a Xen so more memory use is to be expected)

A bit of an older CPU but hey, I’m not complaining! At least this host works!

Things to do:

  • Install nginx to server static files and proxy to Apache for dynamic files
  • Get SVN working
  • Django and python!
  • Possibly more WordPress to a Python based blog/CMS cause WordPress uses lots of memory
  • Any other suggestions?

I’m going to be testing the link speeds to Australia when I SSH out of my school proxy and past the DET firewall in uTorrent 🙂 yay!

Random Photos

Do do do… Thought that I might upload some random photos that were on my phone cause I’m a bit bored right now.

Haha, I decided to change my login picture to Domo Kun after seeing a Domo shirt on ThinkGeek 🙂

And yes, that is a photo of my editing a photo in Photoshop of my microwave.. what can I say? I was bored at the time. Microwave photo was not taken my my phone though…

ipstar Milestone!

Look look!!!

Some of you might know that I have a crappy Internet connection that likes to drop out BUT…

I got all the way to 1 WHOLE GB without a single dropout 🙂 That’s by far the best records it’s ever done, it usually only manages about 200MB before it drops out and resets the counters…

Just thought that you guys all needed to know 🙂
