Read the original article "myRL.net Facelifting" here if you haven't already.

So it has been a while since my last post. Let me explain why:
First of all I couldn't stand WordPress anymore, which was the blogging software behind the site. So I started to code my own system instead, which is what you currently see here now. No more bloat and limited to the core functions I want. There's no more comment function and as suggested by Kreuvf (thank you!) I removed the Flattr JavaScript API because it's basically useless JavaScript bloat that only enables you to view the amount of flattrs received plus directly flattering without going to the Flattr website. It came with the cost that api.flattr.com could track my visitors and apart from that I'm not a fan of JavaScript anyhow.

The next thing that bothered me was the Malaysian host. As I already said, I always wanted to try Asian hosting, the basic idea always was something outside the EU and the U.S.A. where my privacy is still cared for. The Malaysian host was very slow however, so I fixed that by moving the site to Iceland now. Furthermore connections are now not only forced to HTTPS but they're also forced to use either AES128-SHA or AES256-SHA, any other cipher is not accepted. This is to improve security and privacy protection for my visitors.

Sorry everything took so long. Without any more delays now, enjoy a fresh article: Games and Dedicated Servers
