Site Updates

So much for the whole “updating more often thing”.  Oh well.  Anyhow, here is a long overdue list of updates i’ve made to the site recently.

  1. IPv6 Enabled.  This site is completely accessible over pure IPv6 courtesy of Hurricane Electric.
  2. SSL Enabled.  This site now enforces an SSL connection whenever you visit.  Completely secure, proxy proof, cache proof, and stuff.
  3. EC2 hosted.  All these improvements are made possible by the fact that the site is now hosted as an Amazon EC2 instance.  Same price (or cheaper) as a VPS with 10 billion times the flexibility and performance.
  4. Up-to-date WordPress.  Remember Code Red? Nimbda? Stuxnet?  This site no longer hosts them as wordpress is now up-to-date!  (btw, i was never actually infected)
  5. Self-hosted DNS.  I now host my own dns again and make changes, etc. whenever I want.
  6. Namecheap Registered.  I am no longer registered with that evil, lying, evil, manipulative, evil, fraudulent company GoDaddy.  I switched to Namecheap and haven’t looked back.

All these changes happened back in January, i’ve just forgotten to talk about them.  I may talk more about these later and about all the features that I forgot about.
