Possible Server Move

Post by sakm »

I may have to move servers very soon due to outdated software on the current server!

I am in talks with the sister company of the current host about transferring to them as it would be a smooth transaction

The only sticky wicket at the moment is the monthly cost!

If I stay paying monthly it more than triples but getting a 2 year plan paid in advance its about them same its just making sure I have enough to pay in advance as funds are running low!

I'm not begging for money yet! :lol: just letting you all know the position we are in currently and what we have in store for the near future :-D

I'm subscribed until April 2025, next time we meet up, would quite happily donate another 20 quid towards the 2 year plan.

From 234 pages of members on here, it looks like percentage of people who actually subscribe to keep this forum alive is tiny. Cannot be bothered to count how many, but I am sure sakm will tell us.

I didn't even realise there was a subscription option, so you have one new subscription for the next 12 months :cheers:

That's because I don't push it! It's purely optional and don't want to force people to subscribe or donate

Things have been ticking over nicely for a fair few years but then something like a server move crops up and sticks a spanner in the works :lol:

Until I get a final price I'm not sure if I will have enough to cover it or not! But once its paid the servers are secure for 2 years

Thanks for subscribing 👍

It's not a lot to help the site keep going, you only have to get one decent deal, a bit of useful information, a pointer to better insurance - the list goes on, but you will have your £20 back again and again :cheers:
