UMS back for a month

I've had $10 of Digital Ocean credit sitting around and doing nothing, so I decided to contribute an additional month of hosting while further funding is yet to be organised.

I've spent the past two hours spinning up an VPS instance, configuring it, securing it, restoring the files from the backup and writing a bash script and cron job to perform nightly backups - hopefully, the labour will pay off. The server details will be provided on demand.

Donations are still greatly appreciated.

I greatly appreciate your work. I am at the moment flying around on our old server again.

Though still reluctant to host/maintain the server myself, (to be completely honest,) I do would be very willing to continue funding the server. ~M

Hoo-Lee-Ship

So this was on for the entire time and no one told me?

With the 1.9 hype my interest is back. Can't wait to dual-wield around Fegeleinia! :P

I'll drop a chatango PM, john. Not sure if it's the same username as I think you'll still be using.

Nice.

How much is the hosting cost per month? I have figured out how to do transactions but I haven't trusted any service other than Steam to take away my money.

Also, you might have heard how MYR is falling, thanks to a certain person and his cronies's brilliant plan.

The host we used in the past was $2 a month (I'm surprised it dropped that low) although we did have some latency issues. Right now, we're using a VPS from Digital Ocean, located in Amsterdam for $10 a month; it's being funded by a promotional code for the duration of one month so I didn't have to pay yet. It's relatively pricey but blazing fast and very reliable.

Currently exploring other hosts too.

Edit: For transactions, I'm currently trusting PayPal to handle that.

I joined up with another host two days ago and as a new customer, I was fortunate enough to receive promotional credit (I did have to part with $5 on my part). Although said promotional credit will expire in one month, it will also provide the opportunity to keep the UMS running for another month; inevitably, we will use a different IP address, however.

Starting on July 20, I will provide details for the new server on demand.

Edit: send your requests in my direction
