    @chriskrycho Shared hosting? Where's the fun in that? Come on, roll your own, you know you want to! I wrote a whole series on the joys of self-hosting!! (http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2012/11/how-to-set-up-a-safe-and-secure-web-server/) :D :D :D

      @chriskrycho Nginx is the only way to fly :) I blogged pretty extensively about my adventures with setting it up, along with various php web apps, if you're bored and want some bathroom reading: http://blog.bigdinosaur.org/blog/categories/nginx/

        @chriskrycho @rabryst @fifthposition Liveblogging is very lightweight and relies on S3+some ajax magic. Simple and *massively* scalable. (BTW, I'm also a Ghost backer—I use Octopress/Jekyll for my personal blog, but looking forward to trying Ghost!)

          @chriskrycho @rabryst @fifthposition I'd have to ask Other Lee (the one with the beard) for the specifics. IIRC, we're leaning on Nginx's speed plus memcached and batcache + APC. Used to use Varnish, but now we just toss static stuff into a big-ass CDN.

            Just found Mention, an OS X app.net client. Might actually make me, you know, use app.net more. http://www.fingernoodle.com/Mention/

              Assuming I don't jinx it by posting about it, keep your eyes on Ars this Sunday night. I've got a trifecta of stuff going up: a feature, a big report, and a photo gallery--all about GIANT ROCKETS.

                Greetings to all the new app.net folks signing up today :) I will make an effort to keep this side of the house updated along with my twitter feed!

                  I am posting on app.net. Cloud synergy. Social Internet 3.0 something. Blah.

                    @shadowbottle @herko Netbot on iOS, but just the web so far on the desktop. Will peek at clients here at some point.

                      @shadowbottle @herko Heh—honestly, I don’t remember. It was at a friend’s wedding, so I was probably looking at something wedding-related!
