Bix Website Apocalypse Possibly Imminent

For awhile now, my DigitalOcean droplet, which hosts a number of different WordPress-driven websites, intermittently encounters unexplained load spikes that I don’t understand. These spikes make every site on the droplet completely unresponsive for three-to-five minutes at a time. Already today I’ve experienced several in just a couple of hours. It’s so frustrating that I am about 50% of the way to a decision to just take myself entirely offline except for anything that I can go put up on Carrd, which will mean taking both my personal blog and the Currently blog entirely offline because I just can’t with this shit.


  1. I’ve moved all my single-page sites to Carrd, leaving just a couple of blogs on the droplet. We’ll see what happens.
