Welcome to Chicago


Recommended Posts

While you were sleeping I was taken website for a wee journey from LA

We've moved to Chicago in the worlds largest DataCenter.


Got more room to move on new server and is cheaper, I can't ask for more.

Move went without issues which is also nice.


Some info of where we are now:

Can you point to the window that has our room?


Building was complete opposite of what I'd thought it be like
