The Pi server

I moved the hosting of my website to a new server… a tiny new server, the size of a smart phone located in my office room.

Pi, Raspberry Pi is the name of the new server, it is according to Wikipedia:

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized single-board computer…which includes an ARM1176JZF-S 700 MHzprocessor…512MB RAM…SD and HDMI

Here’s a picture:

What’s great about Pi is that it’s tiny, powerful for it’s size, can run Linux, has many interfaces (2xUSB,1xHDMI, 100MBit Ethernet, audio and composite), low power consumption and moderately priced.

It all started with Google abandoning Reader, my favorite RSS feed reader and me unable to find a decent replacement, Feedly looks really nice in a browser but a HORRIBLE android app, old reader is a good compromise, but has no apps at all.

This is why i decided to move to Tiny, tiny RSS…which needed it’s own server and my hosting provider did not allow me to install; thus I decided to get my own hosting.
