That’s the question that I have right now.
See, I have this PC that isn’t doing much of anything right now, acting as my ‘web server’ that no one can get at.
And really, I’ve lost a lot of interest in it. I still want to use it for other things, such as an imap server, but I’m not sure I need a personal webserver anymore.
At least, not one that’s publicly available.
This blog is a really good substitute for the blog that I had on my old site; it has a good comment system, I can access/update it from anywhere and I don’t have to worry about it going down with the random blackouts that Kanata has.
Plus, for free, I now have a gallery(and a GIG of space). Mind you, it’s not the size of the old one, but that wouldn’t take that long to recreate.
And the whole Friends thing is an easy(lazy) way for me to keep up with others ^_^
If I drop the idea of having a real public server, then I can increase my ISP speed (3-5M) for another $5/month.
Why don’t I do that now?
With my current level, the static IP is free. With the faster one, static IP is an extra $15/month, so that works out to $20/month.
I could move to Rogers, save a ton, go up to 6M, but they’re killing torrents, so that’s no good.
I think I’ll drop it. I’ll wait until the end of the week and think about it for awhile.
But right now, I don’t see a reason to have the website. At least not a public one. A fun one, to try new stuff on, sure, but nothing that needs to be seen for normal folk ^_^
