Sam Wilson's Website

June 2023

  1. My websites are now all moved to Digital Ocean in Sydney. They were hosted in a few places overseas (mainly DO in California), and since DO opened their Sydney region I’ve been meaning to switch. It’s quite amazing how much quicker it is! So nice to type in a terminal with 50ms latency instead of 300.

    Whenever I do this sort of thing I wonder if it’s worth carrying on with self-hosting. It takes a little bit of time, sometimes, although not really all that much. The main downside is just the feeling that I don’t really know enough. That said, I’ve been doing it since about 2006 and everything’s sort of gone according to plan in that time.
