Our new hosting provider

While selecting a hosting provider isn’t the sexiest of topics to most, we recently decided to move over to Node-Nine.  These guys really know their stuff.  We were very impressed by not only their passion for cloud-based high-availability, but also their relentless pursuit of automation.  They even have systems in place to help auto patch our site so that we don’t get hit by newly announced vulnerabilities.

Needless to say, we’re impressed.

Their services are also very cost effective.  We’re not only paying -WAY- less than we were when we ran things ourselves on Amazon but we also now have a great bunch of support engineers we can contact if we ever have any questions or problems.

Anyway, if you’re in the market for a great hosting provider, check them out.

Truth in Advertising

Anybody who doesn’t live with their head in the sand, or believing in magical mystery boogie-men in the sky, knows that Insurance Companies are nothing if not lying parasites that try every devilish trick they can devise to screw their customers out of ever having to pay for anything.  I actually had one PROFIT from having to pay-out for a scenario I was involved in.

That said, it was nice to see an Insurance Company finally send me a letter the other day showing clearly how I’m going to feel as their customer.

“Yeah big boy, give it to me prison style… you know that’s how I like it…right here at my desk…”

Java is like severe head-trauma for your computer.

Anyone that writes applications in this garbage language has obviously never had to use a Java-based application.  If they had, they’d realize how fucking buggy, inconsistent, and slow this language is in real life.

Please, if you know anyone developing in Java, do them and the Internet a favor and check them into rehab.

     printf("Hello World");

Boot sector found.
Image initializing…

Ahhh, that’s much better. I love a good boot-up in the morning.
