hope you’re well and had a great weekend!
Just a quick notice to let you all know about some scheduling for this week with respect to Delimiter. This week we’re going to be initiating a ‘slow week’, which means we’ll post 2-3 limited stories a day, a fair bit less than the normal 5-6. Delimiter 2.0 will likely have one major story published. This is primarily to give your humble editor a bit of a break after a very busy period, while still keeping an eye on the important stories ;) We usually do this once or twice a year.
However, it’s not just a break: Over the past few months or so a bunch of things in the back-end of Delimiter, with respect to administration of our technical hosting platform, finances and so on have built up, so we need some time to sort through that this week. One of the things we’ll be working on is that one afternoon this week, we’re shifting our site hosting from a WordPress/Apache/PHP/MySQL base to a WordPress/Nginx/PHP-FPM/MySQL base. The aim of this is that our site performance will radically improve, and that we’ll be better able to deal with all those huge spikes of traffic we’ve recently been getting. So watch out for that ;) Hopefully it’ll all go off without a hitch, but there may be a little bit of turbulence until we get things settled.
It may not seem the best time to have a slow week, during an election campaign, but the truth is that both sides of politics’ policies are very well-analysed at this point, and the debate happening right now is mainly just political fluff around the core policies. We’ll return next week with a final look at what the various parties are offering in terms of their technology policies. And, we’ll venture an opinion as to who should receive your vote.
In the meantime, we’ll leave you with this image of Shadow Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull above. Just what, precisely, is the Earl of Wentworth doing in this photo? One for the ages, we suspect ;)
