Tasting notes and wine reviews, posted without regard for timeliness or punctuation


  • The site's UI is Bootstrap 3 with extra theming on top.


  • nginx is the web server running on the host.


  • The main engine of the site is a fork of Toto, a Ruby gem.


  • S3 hosts all the static files that route through CloudFront.


  • The site is hosted on an EC2 instance.


  • Markdown is how I format all my posts. Uses the "smart" and "footnotes" options.


  • I use GA for more in-depth analysis than Gaug.es offers.


  • All images, CSS, and JS route through CloudFront edge servers.


  • A blog without a database generally needs an offsite commenting system. Disqus is mine.


  • Using Git for deployment and version control.


  • I'm trying to wring more instrumentation out of New Relic as it pertains to Rack, but for the time being, New Relic is monitoring/alerting uptime and some basic performance metrics.


  • Atom is my main IDE/text editor.


  • I like Gaug.es for keeping a quick eye on traffic and top content.
