Site update

This weekend that just passed, I just moved this off a bloated reseller server and onto Digital Ocean, added SSL and Jetpack for CDN. All the old posts are private. Mostly because they’re old, embarrassing and I really needed spellcheckers. I don’t know what I’d do without the help of robots.
