So Meuon has graciously found an Ethernet jack and power plug for the Flutterby server for, what, 17 or 18 years now? I think I first put something up on Flutterby.com, moved my web presence over from Chattanooga.net, in 1997, and the blog format started in February of 1998.

This may change shortly, and I'm kind of thinking about what Flutterby.com (and Flutterby.net) should be in the era of FaceTwitSpacePlus.

Anyway, things are in flux, I'll probably move to some sort of shared hosting plan, I definitely like having the augmented brain that the archives and search offer me, and I really appreciate the small community we've formed here (though I miss a few people who haven't checked in for a while... I see petronius and several others on Facebook, and Twitter, but haven't heard from "m" in a while, for instance).

Obviously the easiest thing would be some sort of cheap VM that could just run Ubuntu and I could migrate the whole thing over to, but I'm also thinking that it may be time to re-invent Flutterby in some way.

If anyone has brainstorms, I'm game to hear 'em.

I've got a cheap "slice" (a couple of hosts ago) that I run my postgresql and ancient aolserver on. Works great. I'm definitely a status-quo kind of guy, so if the current setup / software / community is ok, I'm fine with sticking with it.

I ran some reddit bots off of pythonanywhere and they seem ok. I decided it was overkill and installed Python 3.3 on a G4 eMac.

Okay, I think a basic A Small Orange hosting account will be reasonable.

hanan, is http://www.flutterby.com/mainlong.rdf suitable, or should I tweak that?

Okay, I've bought an account at A Small Orange. I will need to move the Flutterby CMS code over to MySQL (blech), or change the whole thing somehow. Not quite sure how that'll go yet...
