I have moved this website (the TLD and this trailing sub-domain blog).
These websites (and databases, etc) are no longer hosted on my NAS in my lounge in Rugby.
They’re now hosted at a Tier 2 datacentre in Nottingham.
That I built.
Yes, that’s right, I’ve built a Tier 2 datacentre.
I could fill your head with the wonderfully geeky adventures that I’ve been through, to establish the datacentre.
But I won’t.
But it’s been a stunning experience.
In a very good way.
However, it all seems to have been set up rather too well (thanks to my design, and thanks to the sensational technical assistance of a Belgian uber-ninja-geek who I got onboard to do the virtualisation, install the KVM HyperVisor, and build the admin tools).
I say ‘too well’, because now that it’s done it’s all…
And I’m bored, because the actual admin overhead is…
And by ‘minimal’ I really mean ‘next to nothing at all’.
Anyway, the Belgian uber-ninja-geek is sticking around to handle first-line support (none!) and to virtualise the next set of infrastructure which I will finish building, RAIDing and installing the OS on, next month.
shall move have also moved the Geekblog from the NAS to the datacentre this weekend/early next week.
I could fill your head with the amazing fun and games and geeky adventures and outright learning curves that I’ve been through in the last couple of months.
But it would only bring your excitement to fever pitch.
And we want to avoid you frothing up your underwear at the thought of such rampant geekage.
I have moved contracts.
I’m no longer slogging my heart out trudging down the M6, M42, M5, M4, M32 to Bristol.
Now I just potter a little way down the road to Northampton.
This is a massive improvement in my life, obv.
Especially as the weather has improved, so I’m doing most of these daily trips on the ZX9R.
I am moving.
