Finally got my arse into gear (not ass, arse) installed Tiny Tiny RSS onto my vps. Took it as an opportunity to move the VPS from London to Melbourne as well. The 50ms latency is much nicer than the 300ms I was getting. Everything is just so much faster!.

www.bluebo.cx/feeds/ is doing some RSS aggregation magic. Interestingly, it actually has a better feature set than Google Reader.

If you want to try it, email me and I'll add an account there for you. The interface is not always obvious, which bugs the UI pedant inside me. It's not ugly, which helps. There's only a couple of people using at the moment.

Along with the VPS migration, that brought my web hosting, and email hosting for a ride. It's all local now, which I'm happy about. Given some income, and I'll feel like I'm able to get it all polished and shiny.

Who're you using for VPS in Melbourne? Everything local I've found has been wildly overpriced which is why we currently host in Tokyo and are planning to split the load between Hetzner in Germany and Amazon in Sydney.

Hm. Their pricing on the "Personal" VPS isn't bad. But if you start to need more memory it gets awfully uncompetitive (globally rather than locally) pretty fast. Might use them for personal stuff but couldn't recommend it to the boss for work.

For comparison purposes an AWS "micro" instance will cost $62 up-front and then under $6/mo if you're willing to pay that up-front and commit to using it for a year. And they'll give you the first month for free to kick the tyres. That's hosting in Sydney, cheaper if you want it in the US.

The downside is feeding the Amazon beast, but they do scale rather well.

Heh, I was about to ask the same question.

I also went with Web24, they also had a 104life promo (may still do), where entering that code gave 10% off all invoices for the life of the account.

I haven't used the console since the original log in to configure the firewall and allow SSH.
