Since the shift of our assets to Amazon S3, I've been itching to get Good-Tutorials up on Heroku, which is possibly the most hip host there is out there today. Tonight I made that switch. Luckily there was only about an hour of downtime, depending on how quickly your browser was able to discover the new site.
This involved a fair bit of changes, none of which should really be visible to you. But there's bound to be some sort of subtle bug buried underneath everything. If you run into an error page, see something that isn't getting updated, or just otherwise run into any problems now that we're on our new host, let me know (a comment on this page or a tweet directed to @holman on Twitter would be great). I'll make sure to patch things up as soon as possible.
This should hopefully give us a little speed boost now and some scalability leeway for the future. This was the main task I wanted to focus on after the previous Amazon S3 changes; I've already found a number of things I want to tackle on the site now that this is over with, so stay tuned!
Have a good one!
