It's been a long time since the last update. So long I can't track what number this should be, so I am calling it day 41.
So what's been going on since last time. Mainly going on holiday to switzerland, Christmas, and dropping out of the course I was studying. And a few things that are actually useful.
- I've turned off new customer acquisition (principally) adwords for Steady Service as I have a list of things that I need to address, and I don't believe it makes sense to carry on paying money to attract people when there are things I know the service really needs. I will need to avoid falling into the trap of making a large number of changes, turning things back on, and then not having any data.
- I've signed up to play with the Rackspace Cloud Monitoring Beta. This should allow automatic monitoring of all the sites I host. Unfortunately it has a restful rather than a declarative API, so I'll need to do some work to take puppet configurations and turn them into changes to be performed against rackspace.
- I've been doing some interesting reading about more computer science topics, including the zipper, derivatives of data types and the lambda calculus.
- I'm due to go back to work as normal next week, so I've been starting to figure out what is happening there.
