Writing

  1. Planning for closure

    Maybe we should think about how long we expect our websites to live before we start making them.

Links

  1. AOL Search

    Using user search data released by AOL in 2006, a day-by-day “story” using one anonymous woman’s daily search queries.

  2. How To Deploy Multiple PHP Applications using Ansible on Ubuntu 14.04 | DigitalOcean

    A rare example of deploying multiple sites to one server with Ansible.

    Reliving the good-old days of setting up my vim configuration by making Atom work just like my vim configuration.

    @gwire Yeah… although part of me hopes one of @yoz’s feeds will spring back to life one day, so they might as well stick around.

    @gwire Every time I display “all” in my reader I’m surprised at all that old stuff.

    @jaggeree A pleasure! Out of my head into yours :)

    If I ever rewrite my site I’d like to add an extra field for blog posts, `rss_bonus_content`, that would only appear in the RSS version.

    File that one in the “do as I say, not as I do” folder.

    @bensummers [The sound of several things whizzing over my head] But thanks :) Starting to think I should pay more for one server per site…

    @adamamyl I haven’t noticed them, but I’ll have another look, ta.

    Maybe I’m making life hard for myself but given the power of cheap servers and requirements of small sites, it doesn’t seem unreasonable.

    If anyone’s used Ansible to deploy multiple sites to one server (rather than one site to multiple servers) I’d love to see how you did it.

    @alicebartlett @denisewilton Great minds, etc. I should scroll to the top before replying.

    @denisewilton Are you loving it?

    Trying to think of a good metaphor for two people using Twitter to argue about whether short, pithy sayings disguise more subtle issues.
