I used to use a CountyComm bag to carry all my camera stuff, but after SHOT Show last year I concluded that it just wasn’t cutting it for what I needed to get all the cool pictures and video that I post on TTAG. For the last few months I’ve been trying out a new bag from Civilian Lab and its been doing pretty awesome, and since I’m on a plane to Arizona this week to film some more awesome stuff I thought I would pull back the curtain and show you what’s in my sack…
I just got a Hero3 from GoPro and wanted to test it out. I’ll be in Arizona next week filming some stuff, so it made sense to make sure I knew how everything worked. Not exactly TTAG worthy, but a fun video nonetheless.
A few months back I wrote an article about getting your load balanced WordPress site up and running with the Rackspace Cloud, an article that was picked up on the Rackspace blog. The focus of that article was getting everything running correctly rather than securing the data, mainly because it was a massive pain in the neck with first generation cloud servers. But since the launch of the Next Generation cloud servers and Rackspace’s Cloud Networks it has become amazingly simple to isolate your vulnerable traffic from prying eyes. I’ve been using the Rackspace Cloud Networks service since it was in beta testing, and given my experience I thought it would be a good idea to revisit this topic and add some pointers on how to quickly and efficiently secure your inter-server data in the Rackspace cloud.
I’ve been playing around with the Rackspace Cloud hosting offerings, and as of right now I’ve got this very blog running load balanced on a set of servers. And while it’s a little more complicated than just setting up a single server it really isn’t that hard. In fact, I’ll step you through the process.
