When years ago I found the first episode of Cowboy Bebop, I had to watch them all. In Japanese, with English subtitles.

The episodes, the stories, the music, the depth. Here's a video about Cowboy Bebop that was just released by Channel Criswell. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkXFBPGZpTM

It's about time to revamp my web hosting. So far, it's all on one dedicated server (as in a hardware box with spinning disks, mirrored albeit) and the system has served me well in the past. It's getting a bit long in the tooth though and the cloud offers everywhere are quite intriguing. Especially as many of them run on really fast hardware, SSDs, quick networking and the flexibility is beyond anything I've ever had. Fire up an instance with the click of a mouse. Add a temporary server for a special purpose, delete it later and pay by the minute. One hoster that I like is DigitalOcean. I've been playing with a test instance for a while and it's been really good. And fast. The only problem was that they didn't offer anything in a managed fashion.
