Server Maintenance of 2013
My server mostly keeps to itself, chugging along in my apartment storage space, but sometimes I order new parts for it. One such part was the picoPSU I bought several months ago to replace my totally overkill 650W PSU. Essentially, I wanted to repla...

OMG New Certificates
One might wonder where I've been or what I've been up to these last couple of months. One would be right to wonder why I, so close to the one year anniversary of this blog, suddenly stopped writing. The truth is kind of embarassing. I created a ...

The Fabulous Pi
In March this year I took a great leap forward in performance when I built my in-memory cache. It took my blog from a paltry 5 requests per second to a whooping 62 requests per second. Well, since then I've made some changes... Since you already ...

Maintenance In Progress
I've embarked upon my mission to upgrade my server installation. It's probably going to take the better part of this week but I hope to be done by this weekend when my parents-in-law are coming to stay with us. Here's my todo-list as of now. 1. Fin...

Tuesday the 25th of September 2012 marks my 30th birthday. Even though I might not be fresh meat anymore, I haven't forgotten about my blog. I've just been busy (raise your hand if you've heard that one before). * I've been planning an article ab...

Cache Me If You Can
Today at work was "do-anything-but-work-day". It's a bit like Googles 20%, but instead of 20% it's more like .8% or something like that. It's was our first time and not that many people had a clear idea about what to do at first. I on the other hand...

Say welcome to IBS!
The blog is now up and running on the new server (called IBS). I'm not totally retiring the laptop yet as I might need it when the next Ubuntu LTS hits. And I have yet to try out if it's the Atom processor that makes CouchDB run a little slower on t...

Tinker Time
It has arrived! Now it's up to me to get this thing put together and installed with some tasty Linux/Node.js/CouchDB action. I also need to learn how to install Linux from an USB flash drive since I don't have any DVDs at home. I almost can't remem...

A New Home
I finally ordered a new server. It will probably take a few days to get it running (first I have to get the parts delivered), but at least I get to build a computer again. It was ages ago that I did my last build and I've never even touched an SSD or...
