AWS Cloud

I didn’t mention in the previous post the new KautzCraft LASER website is installed on its own virtual server in the Amazon Web Service (AWS) cloud. Of course its actual location is irrelevant and only of interest to me.

One of my many hobby interests is building web sites. Because I can. 

The easiest way to deploy a web site is through the use of a website provider. I presently use Mochahost. GoDaddy is another well advertised provider but I have never used them. These and many other hosting services provide all the background infra structure needed to build a website. 

When using a […] Continue reading » AWS Cloud

The Cutting Light

Working my way into a new creative hobby. I am a sucker for anything high technology. So LASER engraving and cutting is right in my “wanna do” bucket list.

I considered personal LASER machines many years ago. There were two big problems. First was the high cost and the second was finding some really good excuse for needing one as a hobbyist.

The hardware vendors back then were only interested in selling the high cost machines. It is still that way today. The “things LASERS could make” were as lame then, as they still are today. My favorite term is making “Junque” which is a high class spelling of […] Continue reading » The Cutting Light

Bad Skinny

My world of “science” knowledge sources seems to be filled with a minimum eighty percent bad information. In the Navy we called it “bad skinny” I had a hard time finding this term on the internet until I defined it as “the skinny”. Many examples can be found when you ask properly.

That is a part of the problem. Knowing how to ask a proper question to get the proper information. 

Also common. Asking questions that only fit the answers expected. Shaping facts to fit preconcieved notions. All bad science. 

But this is far from the real problem.

The world hears more expressed opinions rather than […] Continue reading » Bad Skinny

Register.com

These folks took over my domain registrations from reg-discount.com.  I think they may have been one-in-the-same but there is no way I can verify that.  I don’t know whom to ask…

But in any case, all my domains were suddenly switched to Register.com. At first I thought someone was hi-jacking my domains as they did a very poor (like zero) effort to inform before the fact.  That’s why I assume they may be the parent company of my original registrar.

Nothing crashed  or stoped working so the transition went well, other than the surprise and a bit of dismay on my part.

The new “High […] Continue reading » Register.com

Moved Again!

I have posted on this before. (I have used this picture before, about a year ago…) Not wanting this to be a re-occurring theme. I had to switch web-hosting services again. Web hosts are service companies that provide access to the internet.

Moving 20 (some) websites and many with a necessary separate database (WordPress and Joomla for example) is a major effort. This is at least the fifth time I have made a major move. The last three in just the last several years. Enter “move” in search box at top of page.

I have some critical websites on AWS (Amazon Web Service) “cloud” private servers. They have […] Continue reading » Moved Again!
