Small-ish #MidnightMurderParty update here. We have left our previous VPS host, DigitalOcean, in favour of Linode. DigitalOcean may be shiny and nice looking and all but when it comes down to it, we just need a 1GB RAM, 1 CPU, SSD box with reasonable data caps, and some tasty Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. At Linode, we’re able to do this for $5 a month. At DigitalOcean, it was costing us $10 a month. Super small servers and small prices but hey, 50% cheaper is 50% cheaper. 😊 The whole setup on Linode took me about 2 hours last night. The box provisioning steps could’ve been a tad clearer but after that it was just SSH for days, so, natural as can be.
Other than that, I’ve begun attempting to score some ambient horror tunes for the upcoming MMP promo animation. Should be interesting.
