Server upgrade

My brother Lewis is going to upgrade the wall.org server, so the blog may be unavailable for a couple hours, or possibly even a day.  Do not fear.

Server upgrade completed.

About Aron Wall

In 2019, I will be studying quantum gravity and black hole thermodynamics as a Lecturer at the University of Cambridge. Before that, I read Great Books at St. John's College (Santa Fe), got my physics Ph.D. from U Maryland, and did my postdocs at UC Santa Barbara, the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, and Stanford.

    Aron, I could find a "share" button on your blog anywhere, I was wondering if you knew you can put those in on some blogs.

    Hey Aron,

    Looks like the website's root (https://www.wall.org) just contains a directory listing with the directory 'html'. That directory contains the 'real' front page. It seems that either the content of 'html' needs to be moved up a directory, or the DocumentRoot directive needs to be changed to reflect the actual path.

    (By the way, it's generally recommended to disable directory listings for security purposes: https://wiki.apache.org/httpd/DirectoryListings)

    Thanks for letting us know, pizza. It looks like they changed the default document root or something. It's fixed now. As for directory listings, we actually use them a lot, so it's not worth it for us to disable them, but thanks for the concern.
