Ya, it’s been a spell. Here’s three, quick—I promise—little updates for those who care:
- I have the Internet… in my home! It’s glorious, like unadulterated starlight.
- My server migration has gone through swimmingly. I was on Ubuntu’s 14.04 LTS (codenamed “Trusty Tahr”) release, which was no bueno, and now I have successfully transferred to a new VPS running Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (codenamed “Bionic Beaver”). The former was EOL and the latter is the new hotness from Canonical.
- Professionally, I am in a strange no man’s land. I have a work contract, which appears to be a zero-hour contract :'( and it doesn’t start until early September, which leaves me with a few weeks to work on other things. Maybe I’ll start a new creative project, or perhaps, I’ll just learn something new. Udemy, here I come.
Something I hadn’t realised was just creating a new Digital Ocean instance bumped up the RAM and disk available to the droplet. So, Digital Ocean have been more generous in the 3 years I had the original VPS running. ↩︎
