      Thanks David, glad you enjoyed it.

      Any comments on the type of content/articles you are interested in?

  2. Daavid says:

    Oh boy. Just about anything that helps us enhance and learn about our servers and websites. For example, the posts on sending emails and running your own mail server was a real eye-opener for me.

    Just off the top of my head;

    How security updates work on Ubuntu
    How RunCloud calculates swap space & why
    How to protect WordPress from security threats
    What to do with unused server resources
    How to code beautiful, multi-functional submission forms

    • Jeff Cleverly says:

      All duly noted and added to a list of prospective blog posts to write and/or articles to look out for.

      Thanks Daavid
