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>

You have to do a lot more manually, but a VPS maybe?

I've been with linode (London) for god knows how many years and they're fantastic and they have smaller plans now (I might have a coupon if you want me to check)

Their smallest plan is thre<snip>

Look at that graph!!!

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

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

Welsh whiskey :o I've never had a single malt before! It's so nice! It's pale like Irish whiskey which I really like compared to the peaty Scottish flavour ones.

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>

Neat!

I was literally thinking about SoCoder needing this the other day, too!

Not because I use SoCoder to securely store my bank details or anything, but because Google Chrome pops up "not secure" every time I log in and its mildly annoyin<snip>

Server Blip 2 - Electric Boogaloo

It's cheating, but cronjobs are so annoying to write I just have one that runs every single minute.

That's just one job, that checks to see if there are any *actual* jobs that need doing as that user.
