KeepItLocked.net is now alexsmolen.com/blog


I’ve spent time updating my personal web site (alexsmolen.com), and one of the changes I made was to move this blog from KeepItLocked.net to alexsmolen.com/blog. It’s easier for me to manage a single host and domain, especially since the move to EC2, considering you can’t host multiple SSL sites on a single IP address without ELB which seems like overkill.

I’ve added some mod_rewrite goodness to ensure that all of my old posts redirect properly, and I’ll keep the domain name for as long as it takes for the internet to forget archived material.

My new setup is pretty sweet though – the whole site is in a local git repository, and I can push changes to the EC2 with a single command. All this happens over a client-certificate protected SSH session. Nice!
