Stop Daddy

Posted on December 6, 2012

Pin Eight has moved from Go Daddy to WebFaction, a smarter shared web host. WebFaction offers more flexibility in mapping web sites to hostnames than Go Daddy ever did, and support for the PostgreSQL RDBMS and languages that aren't "a fractal of bad design" come standard. And unlike Go Daddy shared hosting as of 2012, WebFaction offers Transport Layer Security (TLS) with Server Name Indication (SNI). So if you use Firefox, Chrome, or Opera, or you use the web browser that comes with Windows Vista or later, Mac OS X 10.5.6 or later, iOS 4 or later, or Android 4 or later, bookmark our SSL site so that someone snooping as usual can't steal your cookies.

Some services on this domain have yet to be migrated from Go Daddy; this will happen over the course of the next two weeks.

UPDATE (December 8): Link to SSL site fixed.

I'm bored because it's hot

I'm working on a new project, a puzzle platformer. But right now, the limiting factor is the temperature. I should be doing physical conditioning so that I can perform the actions that my character performs, record them on video, and use them as a reference for animating my character. But unless the overnight low temperature is below 60°F (15°C), I can't train. No training, no footage. No footage, no sprite graphics. No sprite graphics, no game.

Lately the weather has been setting record-setting high temperatures of 105°F (41°C). This pushes the overnight low above 75°F (24°C). So I may have to wait weeks or months to be able to train again, and until then, I'm bored.
