So there's this whole thing with my previous web-host for thedeadparrot.com deciding to shut down, and so I've moved everything onto my desktop for the moment. So there may some odd, intermittent downtime here and there, due to rebooting the machine or possibly having to move it/shut it down for a week/whatever. I might be able to find some other solution at some further point (like, say, a cheap, more dedicated server), but the announcement was kind of sudden and stuff, and this was the best solution I could come up with.
What was really nice was that installing the LAMP stack via apt-get was insanely easy, and I managed to even get Wordpress up and running fairly quickly.
Um, yeah. It's really nice being able to control everything on the box without always having to use FTP to move files around. I really hope this doesn't come back to bite me in the ass in the future. Just saying.
