    Do something with VPSBoard!

    Sake! Someone put some effort into the site mods/admins, great resource going to waste and being overrun with spam offers.

    60% off Vultr Bare Metal Instance

    Vultr launched Bare Metal instances a while back, the pricing was steep at $300 per month but still ok if you needed something to fire up short term for a task. They have reduced the price to $120/monthly or $0.179/h. The spec for that price to run it every month is really not that bad...

    Droplet upgrades and new configurations at Digital Ocean

    Just in case you have not seen it yet, DO has some new configurations on their droplets, pricing remains the same on the current line up but with more resources. The new $15 flexible droplets are pretty nice but so are the dedicated CPU ones.

    What's your language?

    So I will say it now, front end, I can't do much with, thank you @MDO for Bootstrap! What is your current preferred coding language and why? Where do you think the future lies? My comfort zone has always been PHP in association with MySQL. Prior to that I worked on Cobol and Pascal, in fact...

    Where is the consumer hosting market going next?

    10-15 years ago it was all the rage to have a personal website, no really, everyone who was anyone including your Gran had a website, it maybe only had a guestbook (remember them) but it was a customer nonetheless. In 2017 shared/reseller hosting is not so much a thing, comparatively. There is...

    For you Mac users out there. Been using this for a month or so now, really neat app to get a new VPS setup with all the basic tools you need and then manage/monitor much of it without the need to log in to the VPS itself. About a year old, yes it has some issues but overall...

    Updates to the Apple Mac line

    So, I am looking to buy a new Mac, but waiting to see the new line-up this year. What I really want is a far better Mac Mini device that I can use with two monitors. Whilst I do love the retina 5k screens I want more than one which is why the Mac or the Pro is better. Hopeful but cautious...

    Vultr $2.50 instances

    Wasn't sure where to put this, just a heads up for anyone looking for one of Vultr's $2.50 instances. I was in there just now doing some backups and noticed they have instances available in New Jersey. Maybe other locations, I didn't check.

    So who is your go to production provider?

    I am talking personal needs here, you have something important who do you choose? I have moved about a lot, not through bad choices per se, just because a provider appeals more than the existing. Looking back I would say the only provider that has been a consistent part of my hosting needs is...

    Static website generator

    I have been using Hugo for the past few months, well more getting acquainted with it, Go is not really my thing but it's nice. What I really want though is something like Hugo with a front end to create/edit my posts, store my images and just do all the basic tasks for me. Never been able to...

    My ioping is better than your DD

    So many posts, over such a long period of time and nobody can agree. Do you think it's possible to say, look run x to tell you whether you vps disk IO "may be an issue" and then run y to see if your network transit is good?  Whilst at the same time saying if x or y is < z you may want to query...
