“Walk Away” (from DNC) Rally In DC

Happening now:

Early in the video they talk about how the Hard Left violent thugs decided to attack the Trump Rally folks last night just as the rally wrapped up. Then they go on to the rest of the event. As it is a live stream, you may not get to that early part of the feed until after it is over and on “on demand” play.

    Well, that live feed ended, but they’ve gone to another live feed outside the D.C. Trump Golf Course:

    Only partly off-topic – on topic for working against those who would eliminate patriots.

    E.M. With all your research re internet/computer safety, do you have any advice for Sundance of thconservativetreehouse – dot – com? He has been told to “git” by WordPress by Dec 2.

    Here is the post: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/11/15/the-treehouse-is-deplatformed/
    The Treehouse is Deplatformed…Posted on November 15, 2020 by sundance

    ….”One week after the 2020 presidential election, The Conservative Treehouse received the following notification:

    …”given the incompatibility between your site’s content and our terms, you need to find a new hosting provider and must migrate the site by Wednesday, December 2nd.
    ….there is no cited violation of any term of service because CTH has never violated one.

    ….”a site reach of 500,000 to a million unique readers each day; and with well over 200,000 subscribers….assembled over 10 years.

    Do you have any suggestions? I wish we could only support those businesses/tech firms that freedom and free enterprise. Thanks.

    MAGA! — If it’s not too late. I’ve just started to read a book comparing the Nordic countries to the US in health care, education, and other things that matter. It’s too soon to say if I like it or if I agree, but I’ve already found a good quote.

    Ed Miliband, the leader of the British Labour Party in 2012 said: “If you want the American dream, go to Finland.”

    Before you move, notice that Finland is really cold and that Finnish is a very hard language to learn.

    That’s easy. WordPress is open source. They encourage folks to set up their own servers. Get a copy of the software, spin up instance. Download site (a built in function) and restore onto your server. Go live.

    WordPress is well-known for its ease of installation. Under most circumstances, installing WordPress is a very simple process and takes less than five minutes to complete. Many web hosts now offer tools (e.g. Fantastico) to automatically install WordPress for you. However, if you wish to install WordPress yourself, the following guide will help.

    Things to Know Before Installing WordPress #Things to Know Before Installing WordPress
    Before you begin the install, there are a few things you need to have and do. Refer the article Before You Install.
    If you need multiple WordPress instances, refer Installing Multiple WordPress Instances.

    Basic Instructions #Basic Instructions
    Here’s the quick version of the instructions for those who are already comfortable with performing such installations. More detailed instructions follow.

    Download and unzip the WordPress package if you haven’t already.
    Create a database for WordPress on your web server, as well as a MySQL (or MariaDB) user who has all privileges for accessing and modifying it.
    (Optional) Find and rename wp-config-sample.php to wp-config.php, then edit the file (see Editing wp-config.php) and add your database information.
    Note: If you are not comfortable with renaming files, step 3 is optional and you can skip it as the install program will create the wp-config.php file for you.
    Upload the WordPress files to the desired location on your web server:
    If you want to integrate WordPress into the root of your domain (e.g. http://example.com/), move or upload all contents of the unzipped WordPress directory (excluding the WordPress directory itself) into the root directory of your web server.
    If you want to have your WordPress installation in its own subdirectory on your website (e.g. http://example.com/blog/), create the blog directory on your server and upload the contents of the unzipped WordPress package to the directory via FTP.
    Note: If your FTP client has an option to convert file names to lower case, make sure it’s disabled.
    Run the WordPress installation script by accessing the URL in a web browser. This should be the URL where you uploaded the WordPress files.
    If you installed WordPress in the root directory, you should visit: http://example.com/
    If you installed WordPress in its own subdirectory called blog, for example, you should visit: http://example.com/blog/
    That’s it! WordPress should now be installed.

    He can spin it up on any Cloud Server farm that isn’t pwnd left, or just buy some hardware and an internet connection.

    BTW, given that TCTH has been given the boot, that will serve as a Round Tuit for me to do an extract download of my site and a trial install on a R.Pi “for that day”… So thanks for the Heads Up.

  7. V.P. Elect Smith says:

    Not particularly recommending a Bezos property, but just as an example, you can spin up a WordPress site on AWS services fairly fast:

  8. V.P. Elect Smith says:

    While definitely not big enough hardware for a large site like CTH, here’s an example / directions of how to do it on a R. Pi:


    As the R.Pi is based off Debian, any Debian ought to take very similar steps (other than the OS install / boot..) which means any big PC cluster can handle a whole lot, cheap.

    Remember that you are limited by your I/O bandwidth to the Telco. IF your PC can drive a GigaBit Ethernet, it can drive a GigaBit of internet traffic… Just sayin’ … a lot of folks get wound around an axle thinking they need a giant mainframe scale server farm. Not so. You need to be able to drive a wire with your peak traffic load… and that’s a whole lot less computes than folks figure.

    What really matters is a fast I/O card / stack, a fast Telco connection, and if you have a lot of misc. old content that takes connections, a fast disk set-up to get to the old content. After that, lots of memory.

    I’m pretty sure CTH is not serving a whole lot of video, so figure text is near no load these days and static images not a whole lot. I don’t know their actual volume, but they could figure it out.

    1 M pages a day. / 24*60*60 = 1,000,000 / 86400 = 11.57 pages / second

    IF a page is 100 KB, that’s 11.57 x 100 = 1157 KB/sec or roughly 11.57 Mb / sec. Not that much at all. Roughly 10Mb Ethernet speed. Even bump that to 1000 KB / page and it ought to run on small hardware. (Note that PEAK may not be evenly distributed as in this example) Getting a 100 Mb upload speed telco connection will be the hard part, followed by handling the actual peak time speed demand (but hopefully internet cache servers will clip that – like Akamai does.)

    If you run your own site, it’s vital to stay current with updates. WordPress is so widely used that any known vulnerability will be quickly exploited.
