Hardware Linux Networking Software Virtualisation www


I had the same theme for over four years. I’ve made quite a few custom css and PHP edits myself, and it had been outdated for ages… But it served me well.


However, it’s now time for something new.


As always, as minimalistic as possible.

On a side note, this blog has been moved from vm1 (and one before that) a virtual machine running on a dual Xeon 3070 (2.66Ghz) at Databarn to Akama, a VM on an 8 core Xeon E3-1230 (3.2Ghz) at Leaseweb.

I’ve also correctly repaired IPv6 on this blog. Apparently nginx never and/or stopped correctly listening to IPv6 (suddenly my Android devices displayed errors on this page, Chrome & Firefox on OS X seemed to fall back to IPv4 instantly… Not sure how long it was broken, but it’s back).

Note to self:


Does not work with IPv6, it has to be

listen          [::]:443;





Misc www

Time has come

I’ve now moved to as domain name.

Time has come to let my once so fierce and mighty nickname aside, and, in this not-so-anonymous world, use my first name.

Old links & bookmarks will remain operational and will redirect to the new domain.

And I’m dropping “blog” all together. And, as always, SSL is running. will still host all uploaded content.

My link shortener will be at The old links will 404 but I doubt many still had the old links bookmarked. I’m not sure why I took “i”, but it sounded nice.

Coincidence wants, that I moved from to, yesterday, October 14, four years ago.

In the coming days I’ll ponder whether I should move to Ghost (or something similar). And if I should run a dedicated droplet just for this blog or not. Hmmmm…

PS: content will still be as useless and random as before.

https is win for spam

Well, here are some stats for a longer period of time since moving to HTTPS.

So moving to HTTPS lowered the average from ~1000ish to ~200 spam comments per month (I implemented HTTPS near the end of 2011-02).

And yay, for Akismet’s graphs being back. For some reason they’d been broken for ages on this blog.
