A quick note about this webpage

As of the moment this webpage is self hosted. That means everything you are seeing is coming from my little Raspberry Pi box sitting on the top of my internet router. It will certainly service the page for now, but there are a few downsides to hosting your own site on a budget, and one of those being that I’m prone to such things as power and service outages, which admittedly rarely ever happens. The server will also be taken down for 10 to 20 minutes for maintenance at 1400GMT every day. Once the podcast is launched I will start looking for a hosting service, so in the meantime please be patient if the page isn’t operational 100% of the time.
