The fact is Windows is the only thing keeping the site alive, since I have decided to run the site via a Debian LAMP stack available from Turnkey Linux.
I have never abandoned the notion that you can run a nifty WordPress site via a tablet, I just wanted my damned tablet back for other uses. I simply don’t have the budget to waste on a tablet constantly running as nothing but a server. Can it do the job? Oh hell yeah! But a simple virtual machine running on top of my Win 7 install does it just as well.
I won’t ever give up on the idea, just the practicality for a poor working class stiff such as myself.
So it is with great regret I offer my old (is 1 year really “old”??), Asus Memo Pad HD 7 up for sale. If you happen to be in Western Kentucky you will be able to see the ad on craigslist.
The hell you say? Why are ya selling it? Because I have decided to invest in another fine Asus Tablet known as the ME572C, with a 1.83GHz, Quad Core Intel Atom processor with 2gb ram and a 1920 x 1200 screen. Blame Best Buy folks, because I found one on sale for $149.99.
Now that doesn’t mean I have given up on Android based servers… but for the foreseeable future, expect this site to remain on a Linux VM.
Let us all keep in mind that a Virtual Machine such as the one this one runs on is also a cool as hell alternative to paying for a big web host…but, as always, that is only my opinion.
Incidentally tonight’s Amazon order included a 1-TB drive and a whole bunch of ram….can you say, zoom, zoom?

Or perhaps you need web hosting for a mere $5.95/month?.
