unfortunate necessary deed has been done:
- Update the site to be fully static (so s3 can serve it for me).
- Ensure the latest backups are on s3.
- Add dns entries to route53.
- Cut over the SOA record.
- Refresh the browser.
- Delete the linode instance (which never gave me a lick of trouble).
- Pour one out :/
One thing I did not expect was for Pingdom to have a complete hissy fit. It’s been 7 hours now and it’s still thrashing between “site is up” and “site is down”. The astute reader will note it’s actually up ;)
