I have followed DigitalOcean for quite some time, but for various reasons, I had not taken the time to try out their products. I decided it was time to take the plunge using one of their $100 credit offers. I'm glad I did!
As a case in point, this Ghost blog was dead simple to setup. I told DigitalOcean that I wanted a blog, gave them some information, and out popped a reasonably sized droplet with Ghost configured and running. I have the access I want on the commandline, as well as the application access necessary to work the Ghost application itself. No hassle, so simple.
I do find myself in an interesting situation at the moment though. I signed up/in through Google's OAuth. All good, until I decided to move the primary address I use out of Google. Even with still having the G-Suite account, not having my old email as primary makes it so that I cannot log in to the service. I have opened a ticket with them, and hope to hear back soon. This droplet will run out of credits soon, and to the card it will go unless I take action!
That is about it for now. Just babbling while I attempt to regain my console access.
