I'm trying to figure out how to upgrade the droplet but being honest, my husband is the one who set all this up for me, so it's going to take me a minute to figure out how to add more bandwidth or whatever.
Yeah, HN can be all "why didn't you just...?" when a site gets hit with traffic, but you know what? I've been in this industry for over 30 years, had a decent stint at Microsoft and other companies you've heard of, working on stuff you've probably used. And if my stupid blog somehow ended up on the front page of $POPULAR_SITE I wouldn't have the first clue how to increase bandwidth. Oh, 30 years of this shite means I know where to immediately start looking, but off the top of my head? phhhhht And it sure as hell would take me more than "a minute to figure out how to add more bandwidth or whatever". :-)
Point is, your page hit the HN lottery, no need for apology. I can bookmark it for later.
Someone reached out and said I can use Cloudflare to fix this, so I'm gonna go try that, doot doot.
Ironically, this has been on my todo list to learn — I want to mirror my Obsidian notes and that requires Cloudflare and before today I've been too nervous to muck around with it.
DigitalOcean's App Platform supports static sites too.
