One can spend a lot of time choosing fonts.
WebFaction was one of the hosts recommended to me. I tested it and a handful of other hosts today, going through the account creation process, the process of setting up multiple sites and databases, and speed testing the results. WebFaction’s control panel made the website set-up and management process easy and still gave me the sort of control and access I wanted but took me off the hook for server security patches, etc.
My testing indicates the site is loading much faster than it was on the previous Linode box, but if that isn’t the case for you (or if you see some other issue) I’d like to hear about it. Thanks!

As I plugged in my Garmin VivoSmart this morning for a couple of hours to give it its week-long plus battery cycle it occurred to me: if I had to take this off every night to charge it I wouldn’t be able to track my sleep the way I do now.
Something to think about given the daily-charge battery cycle predicted for the Apple Watch.
I need to transfer my sites to a new web host. Having been out of the web hosting shopping arena for some time now, I could use a little advice.
My main traffic site is this one (~30-40k pageviews/month) which is a WordPress powered site. I also have several other PHP apps installed on this site, so I’d prefer not to go to a WP-specific host.
Further, I have several smaller sites I need to transfer as well and they are a mix of WP-powered and “other” web apps.
I’d like to find a host that makes it easy for me to add new domains/sites under a single umbrella account (with shared resource limits) as I have new ideas, with easy SSH/SFTP access, Git client, and phpMyAdmin or equivalent for easy maintenance. I should also note that these are personal sites and pet projects – I have neither a big budget nor expensive needs for these sites.
Do you host somewhere (or are you a host) that meets my requirements? Please let me know in the comments.

Yes, I still use Firefox as my development browser. I’m comfortable with my dinosaur status.
What is your recommended mouse these days? My rechargeable Logitech Performance MX is driving me nuts by doubling ~75% of my clicks.
I really like this approach to email. Thankfully I don’t have to deal with the volume of email I used to, but if it ever approaches that level again I’m going to give this a shot. It is easy to replicate in Mail.app with a smart folder and a second window.
Hi Everyone, I got some good news yesterday when I went in for treatment. The results from my CT scan earlier this week show a significant reduction in size of my abdominal lymph nodes and with the nodules in/around my liver. There is some minor growth in the nodules in my lungs, but these are…
I linked to this back in November when it was in beta and I’ve been using it since then very happily. Check it out – unlike other contact managers I’ve tried in the past it actually delivers on what is promises.
I’m a very happy Lightroom user but I rarely get artistic in it (mostly minor touch-up). There is a lot more fun stuff I can learn.
Looks gorgeous to me! I’d love to read a dpreview of this. I’d like to see a camera-only comparison against the iPhone 6 too.
I love in-depth pieces like this. A lot of TLC went into this feature and it feels nice to use (although when I launched the official Twitter client to check it out I actually had trouble finding it – click into the photo/camera, then you can switch to video).
Filed under “I guess you can get used to anything”, drinking the oral contrast for my CT scan doesn’t seem so bad today.
