Ok, as none of you know I am building a web based business in my ample [lie, limited] free time. And it is so much fun, it just makes the innovation juice pour into the brain with ideas. For example, obviously, when I go live I need to get a web host. Web hosts with shared hosting are cheap, dedicated hosting is expensive, and home hosting is a labor of love. So remembering how Plenty of Fish scaled so well (CDN, CDN, CDN) it occurred to me to CDN my own site (not erlglobal). (Bonus, cdn is cheaper, nearly than hosting)

So I am going to host all of the images, scripts css on the CDN, and the products and other shared JSON files as well. Working in an enterprise environment I would have never cared before but having to actually pay and control costs forces me to look at just what I am doing! I was kind of worried because ASP.NET is a resource hog.

Really, this is just one of the many things which I am not going to itemize, just so much fun. If only I had customers! But wait, I can't go live until it is perfect ... just ... one ... more ... tweak : ). BTW, why can't CC providers (braintree) provide a simple API? Easy Post wins on the simple API front. First place that advertised simple, easy, api that I was actually able to get fully up and running in under an hour.
Need custom software developed? I do custom programming based primarily on MS tools with an emphasis on C# development and consulting.
