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.

You're not going to care about any of this…

You’re not going to care about any of this…

… but I’ve spent a Saturday night working on this stuff, so I’m going to share.

I’ve spent the evening getting groovymother.com up and running on a new VPS box from VPSLink.

Of potential interest to other nerds is the fact that the whole shebang is now running Apache-free. The Django app that powers the site runs under the coroutine-tastic Spawning. In front of that, and serving static files, is the still-sexy nginx.

The Spawning processes are started and managed by Supervisor, which also takes care of running and monitoring the jobs that pull in feeds and grab screenshots.

All in all, a tremendously productive, if really rather sad, Saturday night.
