Pay no attention to that Sysadmin behind the curtain!

Hello, howdy, good day to you all, and whatever you like to greet others with! Robert here, sticking his head out from his cave where he takes care of all the nice little back-end stuff that keeps this lovely little site shoved all up into someone’s cloud running! I just wanted to give you all a little behind the scenes look as to what this site is running on, and what it takes to keep it running.

For starters, this site is of course running on WordPress, running on a cloud server running Ubuntu 16.04 (because penguins, dammit!) Hosting for our little site is provided by those awesome, awesome folks at Digital Ocean, and the hosting is in NYC, just a stone’s throw from me!

As I’m a sysadmin and engineer by nature, I’m the one who basically makes sure that the site doesn’t go kaputsky on us in the middle of the night or something drastic like that. 🙂

But that’s just a nice little look into what we’re using to run this site. Troels does the front-end (makes it look nice); I keep the engine running in the back-end. An excellent combo, no?

Episode 3: Music to My Ears

After a three months’ pause, the nerds finally get back together to discuss what’s been going on over the holidays.

If you like danceable music made under Nigerian dictator rule, rare vinyl records, or what happens when you give four nutsos from San Francisco the means to do a CD-ROM game, you’ll probably find some treats in this episode.
