1 Month till the Wedding

1 Month till the Wedding thumbnail
Today is August 17th. There are 30 days left between Ryan, myself, and the altar. After all this time it feels awfully, wonderfully surreal. Who wants to party? Getting in all the RSVPs (well hearing about them via Mom and Dad) - Ryan & I are probably just as excited to see and celebrate with our favorite people...

The Reason Over the last few months Rebecca (my Fiancee) and I have continued making progress on all the little tasks that we have to complete before our wedding.

Automatic Server Snapshots

Automatic Server Snapshots thumbnail
So, after accidentally messing up previous attempts at this website, I wanted to be sure we had a way to easily revert the entire server back. Just in case we... you know... screw something up. Again. As I've written about before, I have set this website up on a digital ocean droplet. One thing I love about Digital...

This worked okay, and allowed us to sort of figure out the organization of the site, but it had some issues. I was worried about maintaining 24/7 uptime, and also...
