Future of the server

As you know, I'm currently the only one funding the server hosting right now (as an act of generosity, not an obligation). To guarantee that the server stays adequately funded, I'm seeking some donations for the future. Each month costs me $4, it sounds very little but the fact still remains that I'm using my personal funds to keep the server online and that I've got my mind on things other than MC right now. It adds up quickly, I've paid for $20 of server time. I've got July covered and possibly August but I still appreciate donations, no matter how small they are.

As for what methods I accept, I can take PayPal and possibly Dogecoin.

I'd prefer to keep my PayPal private but I'm sure it won't be a problem as most players know where to contact me privately. To clarify, this isn't because I'm not willing to pay for the server but because this server probably means a lot to other players too and they should do their part in funding the server.

As I've told Fegelein1906 earlier on today, I believe that I'm no longer the person to be hosting the server due to several factors (with time constraints being the main reason). Between us, we've discussed the possibility of me handing the server files back to him and uploading them for those who are concerned. Please discuss any questions and issues you may have.

Hmm.....will the server still be hosted using the online host or will it be online only when M will turn his laptop on? Asking just to be sure.

From what he told me, it's back to the old days of him hosting it locally.

oh... I hate those days. I've just had enough with Hamachi. Convince him to at least use a DDNS, john. Please, for my sanity's sake.

When the time is nearing, I can help him configure a DDNS service.

That'd be great (only a paid hosting is better :P ). I'd really wish any of us have a machine that will run 24/7, though. I kinda dread having to go back to having to stay up at night (amidst study too, very soon)...

To DA: if you have the means to pay for online hosting, then by all means consider it.

I am working my butt off to afford a (well deserved) vacation, and my PS3 also stopped working recently. (And repairing costs an awful lot of money.) Therefore I shall not pay for online hosting.

I kinda already expected that, to my great dismay...

Anyway, I propose 2 changes from the original local server regime:

  1. Use Dropbox. Run the server in a folder that gets updated automatically to Dropbox. That way It'd be easier for someone else to fix problems with corrupt files and whatnot, and for me to update the transit map.
  2. Ditch Hamachi and use a Dynamic DNS service. Hamachi does make slow connection worse, and throughout the period of UMS being run over Hamachi the majority of players have had problems with it.
