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.

NGINX requests - by day

NGINX requests - by day

A blog post I wrote last night ended up on the front page of Reddit this morning. As of 2pm, I have had more unique visitors today than I had in January-March of this year combined!

My stack of nginx, Apache, Django and memcache all kicked in exactly as designed, and handled the flood of visitors without breaking (much) of a sweat, on a $25-a-month virtual server.

(Hat tip to Simon Willison for blogging about using this architecture. and inspiring me to preemptively deploy it on my own blog)

Lummy! It’s been five years since I started writing on groovymother.com. Gonna have to spend some time this weekend doing visualizations of my post history.

Just launched my rebuilt and redesigned blog. It's still a bit on the brittle side, but I'm really happy with it as a first step.
