Few years ago I have signed up for a
Digital Ocean account. I used one
single droplet for my private needs, like hosting my private Git
repositories and my blog. However, as I didn’t host anything else there
except my blog, I decided to shut it down. From now on, my blog is
on GitHub Pages, as it provides just
everything I need (except automatically converting my resume to
PDF. But I can live without that.)
I’m really sorry, Digital Ocean Guys, your hosting is awesome and I’ll
keep recommending you to others, but paying for a droplet for one
single blog is overkill.

also a freelancer self- and software developer.
He is learning about different IT subjects since the late
1990s. These include web development, application building,
systems engineering, IT security and many others. He also dug his
nose deeply into free software, dealing with different types of
Linux and its applications,
while also writing and contributing to some open source projects.
On this site he is writing posts about different stuff he faces
during work (oh my, yet another IT solutions blog), hoping they
can help others with their job, or just to get along with their
brand new netbook that shipped with Linux.

you change your course just because someone says so, you are
