Welcome to my blog. Not much to add about it here, at least not yet.

I have a Linode account and it has suited my personal needs for a developer sandbox online very well. we’ve also used it professionally, with a high degree of success.

I do have to say that their recent security issue alerts cause me concern:

but they seem to have gotten off their duffs and are addressing it, so I’m going to give them the benefit of the doubt with optimism that this is a wake up call that they really need to take security seriously.  I’m going to be cautious and be as prepared myself, but shit like this happens, and I’m only paying $20/month for my own VPS, so as long as it doesn’t happen again with the core user services that I can’t arm myself against…

Anyway, if you plan on setting up a linode account and want to throw be a referral bone, here’s my referrer url:
