The obligatory welcome-to-my-blog post

Welcome! I’m Brian Guthrie. This is my blog. I think that covers the bases.

I’ve been sitting on this domain for a long time because I’ve had a hard time deciding how I wanted to host it. My original goal was to use my desktop at home to host the domain, because I don’t use it for much of anything else anymore, but my cable provider blocks incoming requests on port 80, so that was out. I finally ponied up the money for real hosting and I’m running on Slicehost, which has more or less the nicest signup page I’ve ever seen for anything, and with which I’ve been very happy for the approximately 12 hours I’ve been a customer. I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes.

Fun with hosts, virtual and otherwise
