I've finally moved the server for jeremyreimer.com to a more modern AWS instance. The original was set up in 2013 and ran on a t1.micro, which is no longer supported. The new instance is a t3.nano, which has even less memory than the micro instances but is faster than the old t1.

Why use such a small server? It's not for the cost savings. Instead, it's a good way to test my newLISP on Rockets web framework to see how it performs with tight hardware constraints. In the future, I might upgrade to a more expansive server.

You might also notice a new banner up top. After many years, my avatar has left Earth orbit and is now circling Mars. And why not? My upcoming novel is set on Mars. More about this very soon!
