Site Moved to AWS / Jekyll

I decided I should probably move my site to a less fragile platform. I’ve been using Wordpress on 000webhost. 000webhost is fine for a free host, but about a year ago they started adding a few hours of downtime each day. I finally got around to dumping the contents of the site along with the database and exporting it to Jekyll. This turned out to be a bit more complicated then I hoped since I needed to stand up a whole local LAMP server to finally get jekyll-exporter to work.

Jekyll has been pretty easy to work with, but since I didn’t really want to check 100MB’s of images into my github account, I decided to do a static site hosting in S3 .

The contents of this site are now in GitHub!
