Just wanted to drop in for a quick technical update. I've redeployed the blog onto a paid service so the server has been significantly more responsive than the previous Heroku free service. I'm using the DigitalOcean VPS which allows root access and lots of configurability. Once again, it took a bit of time to configure NGINX, postgres, and gunicorn to work with the server and Django but largely fewer idiosyncrasies than Heroku. I've also configured a Google Analytics package to keep tab on things. Currently waiting for the new DNS settings to propogate as I type this.
While the creation of the site was largely a technical learning experience in web development, I have some pretty cool projects to fill the page. I designed and coded the layout myself, including the mobile templates. I can assure that the next one is going to spark some intrigue for burrito lovers. Lastly, I also be adding random musings about a wide bunch of things that interest me. Can't wait to get things up and running. Stay tuned!
