Welcome to my blog. It’s still a work in progress, and it’s purpose will change over time… but for now, its serves the following purposes:
- Exercising the “right hemisphere” of my brain, as I share my thoughts on music, technology, books, hobbies, etc….
- Gives me a place to rehost posts from my old blog
- Helps me to grow my experience with AWS and other technologies that I’m becoming familiar with. Today, I’m hosting my own WordPress instance on a LAMP server that I installed on an AWS EC2 micro instance. I’m using S3 to host the images and media. Over time, I hope to use AWS (or scripting in PHP) to
- write a program (or use AWS media technologies or Lambda) to convert m4a files for mp3 (it’s easier to share my music in mp3 format)
- change the WP-S3 plugin to use S3 infrequent storage (no need for the redundancy that S3 provides)
- convert the DB from MySQL to Amazon Dynamo (or another noSQL db).
So, thanks for checking out my blog and feel free to leave a comment!
