This website is a bootstrapp install running on googles appengine
which provides free hosting for moddest use.
BootStrApp is a wikiblog
, providing the combined ease and power of a personal wiki
with a community dialogue
is the perfect choice for a personal or project website as it allows you to build and maintain any html you can imagine. Keep all of your public facing information in one easy to update place. Just login and edit from any browser and anywhere.
Because the BootStrApp wikiblog is designed as a personal site you are in full control and can use any html without the silly security restrictions found in wiki markups or being forced to treat every page as a blogpost.
Unlike more centralised systems, we just provide the code and an easy way to install it onto googles appengine network.
This delivers easy administration and unlimited scale, cheap (free) hosting with a subdomain.appspot.com
address and you retain total ownership of the system and content.
is MIT licensed, lua
based for flexibility and designed to operate standalone or as the core of bigger projects.

Since gae has decided to be both slow(spinup is a bitch) and overpriced I've switched focus to an nginx based solution that you can run on, well, any machine that lets you run a web server like nginx.
Yeah sure it scales but you can actually get pretty damn big with a single nginx server running on a decent box at 1% of the cost...
for recent updates, I am also retaining gae compatibility but it is no longer the main focus...

Multi threading GAE java problems have been neutralised.
Which means we are now servicing multiple requests at the same time form single java instances. This should reduce GAE hosting costs.
Have also changed most filesystem access from multiple files down to 1 zip of multiple files. Previously GAE would occasionally deny that a file exists (very annoying bug). Resulting in a failed page and requiring the user to reload.
This should also be fixed or at the very least highly reduced.
In other news have moved out 4lfa comic site to GAE behold http://cb.4lfa.com/

I take it back,it looks like jill is not too happy with threads at all. I've patched up a few areas but there may still be more strangeness.

Switched thread safe flag on so we should now use less instances and therefore less of the new resources in the appengine price restructure. This may cause strange bugs but I think we will be just fine since we have always been thread safe.
