This site now sits on a server at FlipHost. I got a Storage250 server from them and added some RAM, and here we are. It’s really a pretty nice setup.
Pretty much everything I’ve setup I’ve done according to guides from Linode. Most of the guides in the Linode Library should apply at least somewhat to FlipHost.
This site was previously on Dreamhost, but there’s been a LOT of downtimethererecently, awholelot. Yah, I just linked to 6 posts from dreamhoststatus.com that were posted from May 12 through May 17. Crazy.
I’ve already canceled the one VPS that I had at Dreamhost. May keep the shared account around for some other sites, but may end up moving absolutely everything to FlipHost. I haven’t really decided yet.
Here’s the full description straight from the TWRP site:
Team Win Recovery Project 2.4, or twrp2 for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. We started from the ground up by taking AOSP recovery and loading it with the standard recovery options, then added a lot of our own features. It’s a fully touch driven user interface – no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.
Installing TWRP on your Google Nexus 4 is pretty simple. The TWRP site has good instructions, but I always forget how to update when a new version is released. And checking the actual TWRP site was something I didn’t think of doing, because I thought I had installed TWRP through a separate tool (which I did).
So, the suggested method for installing TWRP to your Google Nexus 4 (and the method I use) is really straight forward. You’ll need root.
I spent about an hour compiling MySQL Workbench from source earlier today. After about 20 newly satisfied dependencies and an hour of actual building, I fired it up and discovered I wasn’t able to connect to any MySQL server through an SSH tunnel, which I have to be able to do.
