I tried a bunch of stuff
in attempt to have note-taker be able to accept a gigantic Christmas video on the guy's site. I did get nginx, note-taker, and Restify to accept really large files, but my VPS instance ran out of memory while trying to buffer up the incoming file. I guess it doesn't stream to the filesystem. (In the end, I uploaded it directly to Digital Ocean Spaces, then linked it from the weblog.)
The weblogs backed by note-taker use block storage (traditional file systems) with git because I really like being able to see incremental changes and easily back them up. I've looked into object storage (stuff that works in the style of AWS S3/Google Cloud Storage) because of cost. The rub is trying to work out something that, particularly for the bot weblogs, allows reverting easily without making a mess.
But…I guess I should speed up the process of working something out. Then again, there are many other things I should speed up as well.
