I am the ghost of groovymother.com. Woooooo!

This is an old page from Rod Begbie's blog.

It only exists in an attempt to prevent linkrot. No new content will be added to this site, and links and images are liable to be broken. Check out begbie.com to find where I'm posting stuff these days.

If you can read this…

…then my DNS-fu has worked, and you’re now hitting groovymother.com on its new server, a virtual Linux box running via Xen, hosted by VPSLink.com

For the last 6 years, all my sites have been hosted from my home, at the mercy of my (usually exceptionally-reliable) Speakeasy DSL connection. However, when the whims of BitTorrent take me, it can cause slowdowns, and virtual-server technology now means I can get root on a hosted server for less than the price of a cup of gin a day, so I’m putting my trust in a hosting company’s arms, and seeing how it works out.

(After signing up with VPSLink, I received a recommendation for Slicehost who offer similarly-priced services, so it’s good to know that switching shouldn’t be a problem if VPSLink turns out to suck balls for some reason)
