An Insomnia 24/7 product (pre-beta)

Development notes

There's still some known bugs in the frontend code and it's still under active development. Rest assured that these are purely frontend and consemtic bugs and have no impact on your privacy.

Front end

The entire frontend is written in php, html5 and css3. We will be adding some AJAX stuff later on to interactively check for the availability of pages at the time of showing the results.

Server

Everything is currently running inside a VM with a ~2GB ram and two 2.66Ghz CPU cores.

Indexing

The indexing is done by the mighty power of Sphinx.

Data storage

A simple MySQL database with a double binary tree index.

Web crawler

Completely custom Ruby code using Mechanize, URI and Nokogiri.
