So I upgraded my VPS

I have little to none demand for web server’s power since my blog is static, plus a couple of small web apps I test on the VPS now and then. Recently, my interests shifted to Ionic framework, nodejs, mongodb and angularjs. I had quite a few ideas for pet projects, mostly for the purpose of learning. I decided to upgrade my VPS to a bit better plan - 256MB of RAM . Still a tiny machine but should be enough for what I have in mind.

I’ve also did a re-installation of the OS as I switch from 64bit Ubuntu 14.04 image to 32bit version. I have no plan to scale this VPS for anything serious so 32bit is good plenty for the purpose, plus all the additional bit of memory.

Migration process is rather painless. I just had to click Re-install OS, setup new user account, apt-get a couple of libs (rvm, ruby, jekyll), setup git server and then git push my blog. Everything is back to normal now I suppose.
