Ugh. I had to take down my web server for today due to the fact that google wanted to index that gedcom stuff, which ended up crippling my (blazing P166) system. I'll have to speed up development on the static-index serving part of that app.

I also tried out some wireless speakers. Damn, they suck. From a bedroom to the deck in the backyard (15 feet, same level, 1 wall) the sound ended up being quite echoed and the voice track was basically non-existent. Frig. Is it just me or is wireless audio a PITA?

  • Why shut it down completely if you can just block Googlebot?
  • Disk is cheap, and apache serves static files pretty darn quickly. Have a close look at why you need dynamic content. You should be able to serve a lot of web pages per day off of a box that beefy.


    • There's no good reason for it to be entirely dynamic. It was easily to get everything running in that mode, however. :)

      I plan for it to be semi-dynamic in that:

      • The user can plug in a new Gedcom file whenever they choose and will not have to run any extra commands to generate indexes, etc.
      • For each request, if the file does not exist, or the content isn't fresh ( older than new data should be generated.

      It should minimize the CPU usage by leaps and bounds.
