Just a quick post to note that the server that this blog is hosted on has been moved. Along with the move is included a slower internet connection â€” the fibre is throttled at 50Mbps down and 9Mbps up. A noticeable downgrade from the previous 76Mbps down and 18Mbps up. You can tell that it’s throttled, because every time you run a speedtest, the speed jumps up to very decent speeds (120Mbps+) for a second or so and then rapidly descends to exactly 50Mbps. It’s a shame and I apologise for the halving in my server’s connections speed, but there isn’t anything that I can do at the moment.
I’ve set up the server to run a speedtest daily at 2:30am, you can see a graph of the results below:

NB: it turns out my speedtest program was inaccurate and all the times that it reported ~2.5 Mbps (specifically upload) it actually meant 9 Mbps. It was a very strange bug indeed. Somewhere around April/May I switched to the newly launched official Ookla Speedtest CLIÂ for more accurate results.

New ISP, new plan, back to 18 Mbps upload. My thanks to Vodafone:
