Obligatory GDPR Gubbins

26th May 2018

Nobody needed to email anybody about the GDPR

You may be interested to know that, while informal, your privacy policy is actually pretty good and basically compliant.

One thing you need to say (my comment here will probably do!) is, if in the unli<snip>

Data Protection Changes

22nd April 2018

So with the data protection changes coming on 25 May, lots of detail is going to be automatically redacted from .co.uk WHOIS information. Shame because its useful. But also probably means less spam!

Time to Move?

16th January 2018

This used to be an issue with the Linux ext3 file system - after 1000 files in a directory it got pretty slow.

Sounds like they're using a modern file system like ext4 so the only limit is 32,000 files if you want to list them easily. And even then<snip>

They seem fairly new so there's not much in the way of reviews.

That could be a good thing (small company, good service, not oversold, recent investment in hardware) or a bad thing (lack of experience, risky future)

It's another annoying step<snip>

Intellibugs

Look at that graph!!!

It's servers, databases, virtual machines, etc. that are really taking the hit.

Intellibugs

People's desktops at home, the slowdown isn't going to be noticeable in typical workloads. So that's the good news.

Virtual machine servers hosting websites though? They're the worst case for this and we'll see them get hit bad

You might not think to do it this way, but the supermarkets like Tesco do things like customised mugs and calendars on their online stores and they're not bad at all.

Probably more expensive in bulk compared to companies that specialise in it, I don<snip>
