Site hosting update


what's this site all about then?!

This site has been around since 2016 in one form or another and tends to get heavily modified with little warning! I created this site for two reasons:

  1. as a place to put down my thoughts about the things that interest me, such as technology, techno, aviation and travel, amongst others.
  2. as a testing site for some of the new and interesting security related features that are available on the internet.

That second point means that this site was hosted in an AWS S3 bucket, served via Cloudfront (with Lambda@Edge injecting Content Security Policy headers) and is IPv6 enabled. In previous incarnations, it was self hosted on an EC2 instance just to get the CSP headers to work, but Lambda @ Edge smashed that one out the park!

However, I recently migrated away from that AWS tech stack to just for simplicity. I wasn't updating the site very often so figured I'd migrate to a blog site for a while and see how that goes. For now, it's really simple and cheaper, which is a bonus given what's happening in the world right now.
