One of the great things about cloud computing is vendor contestability. With a bit of effort, you can move from one vendor to another without the end user noticing.
Sadly, the computing power provided by the micro instance just wasn't quite enough to power this blog at the speed I wanted, particularly with the other things that I was putting on the server.
And so, I've migrated the hosting for this blog to OpenShift. There wasn't much effort involved, and to you, dear reader, it's pretty seamless. And it's free, too.
