    What's your flat file blog of choice?

    The news manager plugin functions fairly well as a blog.  At least for my usage, which admittedly isn't "regularly updated".

    Computer chairs. What do you recommend?

    I would also recommend standing.  Started with a Standesk 2200 several weeks ago to make sure I'd be able to tolerate it, and will be looking into something adjustable like that Ergotron in the near future.

    Quarterly vpsBoard newsletter/update

    I feel special because I got 3 emails, not 2 :)

    Gmail Trick

    I've always loved this "feature".  I have [email protected], and 99.9% of my spam comes in as [email protected] (no period), so I setup a filter to auto-delete anything missing the period and voila, I have a spam free inbox!

    Searching for a simple CMS

    I use GetSimple, and it may meet all your requirements: Data is stored in multiple XML files I don't know about security track record as I only found it recently (when I found it I did some quick searching and only came across one reference to a security problem, but I admit I didn't spend...

    Is there any easy way to do this? (Netflix)

    I don't know where you work or what you do there, so maybe this isn't a concern, but working around a policy they've put in place like this would be a fireable offense at some workplaces.

    Bitcoin reaches 1k for the first time

    Yeah, I wish I'd thrown $100 at it back when it was under < $10/BTC.  But let's say I bought at $3, meaning I'd be buying roughly 33 BTC, which would be worth roughly $33,000 today.  It's still not clear to me how I'd get that money out though.  Will any exchanges wire me that amount all at...

    New WHMCS Exploit

    In their defense, if these exploits are all in old code then anything they learn now won't help fix code they wrote days/months/years ago.

    Best way to copy DNS from one provider to another (CF to RS)

    You don't like them because you're locked out, or did you have service issues with CF?  I was using Point until a couple weeks ago, but after the buyout figured I better get out before they get rid of the free plan (which I just got an email about this morning -- totally saw that...

    "true cloud" providers

    datarealm: I saw your ads on WHT when I was searching earlier.  Searching for your company name just brings up your ads without much discussion threads -- are you still new and not used by many clients yet? serverian: Yeah I don't need multi datacenter redundancy, was just curious since I was...

    "true cloud" providers

    So say I'm lazy (and I am!) and want high availability without having to do it myself.  Seems like "the cloud" is my answer, but not all clouds are created equal so I'm having a tough time identifying providers. So who are the "true cloud" providers, which to me means at the very least they...

    Whats your home connection speed?

    For that price, 250GB.  For an extra $30/mo you can upgrade to unlimited, which I did for several months while seeding crashplan backups to multiple off-site locations.  Don't need it anymore so just cancelled yesterday actually. And it's worth noting that's a 2 year contract price (70% off, so...

    "free -m" on KVM VPS

    Looks like that may have been it.  After doing an rmmod virtio_balloon it went up to 495 and stopped fluctuating.  Adding virtio_balloon to blacklist.conf and rebooting also shows 495 without fluctuation (so far anyway).  Still not the 512 I was expecting to see, but it's better than seeing 414...

    "free -m" on KVM VPS

    That's funny, because I was going to link to that to say this isn't a "linux ate my ram" problem! I'm not complaining about the used/free values...I understand how cache works.  What I don't understand is why the TOTAL amount of memory available is fluctuating.  Since this is a 512MB VPS, I...

    "free -m" on KVM VPS

    So that doesn't get accounted for in the "used" column, it's directly deducted from the "total"? Also it looks like it changes over time, not just after a reboot.  Looked again after a few minutes and it went from 479 to 492.

    "free -m" on KVM VPS

    I have a 512MB KVM VPS, and "free -m" shows a different number each time I reboot it.  Here's the latest run: total used free shared buffers cached Mem: 479 59 420 0 8 26 -/+ buffers/cache: 23...

    Which deal to keep?

    HalfEatenPie, it's $59/mo for the server, and not a problem on the day-to-day.  And actually I guess that's a good way to look at it.  I was leaning towards the VPS because it's a great deal, and cheaper, but if I don't really need cheaper then why worry about that detail. wlanboy, I completely...

    Which deal to keep?

    shovenose, any reason why? vanarp, yes there's still some room to grow on the VPS.  I host several sites using a memory hungry CMS, but am still only around 2.5/4 GB used.  HD/CPU/Bandwidth wise I don't use anywhere near the limits. And yes, hardware issues are one concern, although I was...
