I mainly program in C and Python. Having said that I have played around with a number of languages including C#, C++, and Erlang and my latest toy Go.

Awesome answer. Thanks. I'll read up on DNSCurve, I've heard of it but never really did much reading on it.

@hrunting OK I guess I mean bandwidth limiting rather than traffic shaping.

comment To improve SQL performance, why not just put lots of RAM rather than having faster hard disks?
Ugh. How many times do people have to be told that RAID is not a backup solution?

comment Consolidating storage on multiple VPS instances
Thanks, that is pretty useful information. Can you give me an indication of the speed you see using that setup? Do you use dedicated servers or VPS machines? Obviously because VPS machines must share the network and storage I am concerned that the performance might not be that great when all is said and done.

comment Django app displaying the same page no matter what url visited
Thank you! If anyone else is having these issues the magic was in setting FORCE_SCRIPT_NAME = '' in settings.py and adding fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_script_name; to fastcgi_params.
