The poor old Toshiba Portege 3110CT laptop that I was using as a webserver turned out not to be up to the task. It would regularly run out of available RAM, and shut down the database server that provides the guts of this website. Luckily for all of us, I was recently able to obtain a hand-me-down “upgrade” for this laptop.
So here we are, back on air again at lachlan.rogers.name . Hopefully more reliably connected than we have been for the last few months.
I have tweaked things a bit, as you may notice. With the change of hardware, I did an upgrade of my WordPress installation. I’ve also switched to a new theme, and at the moment it has a very minimalist appearance (which I like quite a lot, to be honest). I may have a go at “colouring it in” over the next little while. More importantly than appearance, however, is the fact that this new theme is easier and more efficient to use.
