Oh boy! Recently, many have heard of the CloudAtCost Debian 8 image containing a backdoor user. Well, this just in – The Ubuntu image contains one too!
Happy New Years everyone! Hope you enjoy 2016. Also, enjoy messing up the year for the next few months. Always have to love that. 🙂
Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you all have an awesome holiday 🙂
So, I have been a customer with DigitalOcean since (really) late 2013 – 2013-12-20 to be exact. I was moving from Linode in hopes for cheaper, faster hosting. At the time of my move, Linode charged double for resources starting at $20/month for a 1GB VPS. As to where DigitalOcean charged a mere $10/month for the same spec with newer hardware, SSDs, and faster network. Of corse I switched! Anyone with a mind would. Now that Linode has caught up with DigitalOcean in system specs and hardware, it is basically neutral except for this billing structures. They both appear to be the same from the homepage but DigitalOcean is credit based. You don’t get charged until the month is over and you pay exactly what you used. Linode tried to copy that as best they could but you still need to prepay for service.
Welcome to my blog. I never did finish that theme I was supposed to be working on. Oh well. I plan to kick content on here once a week to start things off. New Years, I will be publishing a very large article, so just wait! Anyways, the type of content I will post consists of reviews, personal experiences, rants, ideas, project updates, and just an on going journal. Since I am all for improvement, please do leave constructive criticism/feedback on any of my posts. Even spelling and grammar corrections are nice 🙂 You can find more about me here.
