A couple of weeks ago, this site went down. That happens from time to time. It went down just as I left the country to go on holiday, and it could only be fixed via physical access, so it was down for a week. At least one person has commented that maybe I should stop with this silliness of running my own server on an old Gentoo box in the meter cupboard, and get some proper hosting.
The thing is, that when I started this blog, some years ago now, I went through a detailed requirements analysis, and a full MoSCoWMeh matrix. If you aren't familiar with MoSCoWMeh, this is an enhanced variant of the well-known MoSCoW technique, which also accommodates the needs of private and hobby-run systems.
The requirement for reliable hosting and 5-nines up-time was classified as Meh, and has remained so since. So now you know.
