Having suffered yet another outage this morning I have to query the sanity of ZH... He must be losing his mind with the server doing a yo-yo routine.
We've had so many outages now it's getting questionable whether key resources are going to be available when we need them.
I know there's a query in the wings due from ukdedicated.com (formerly flump.net - although I think they're trying to sweep that under the carpet).
In all seriousness, 5 months left or no, it's time to pull the plug on Farcehosts and get it all moved... Please.. for my sanity and those of everyone else.. *fluttering of eyelashes*
Yep. The man's got a point. I don't think you will lose members by these outages but you will seriously start to tick most of them off. Get it sorted.
Although I'd love to say "Oi... You!" on this one and make lots of unreasonable demands I don't pay the bills so perhaps the "Get it sorted!" approach might be a bit harsh..
... but in all honesty I don't see any benefit to Edugeek as a team, the owner or ought else if the server really kicks the big one (which seems increasingly likely) if it stays at Farcehosts. I imagine the loss in revenue and time required to rectify such a fubar would be a big issue that might swing the pro/con meter.
Just a thought from the trenches so's to speak...
The server seems to be wobbly lately regardless of what I do. I think that edugeek may be outgrowing the server anyway and yes we should hopefully be getting a new server soon.
I am discussing hosting options right now for a move asap.

Jest? Darn it, I missed the facial expression and vocal tone to go with the typing... but seriously, how was I supposed to know...
.. and besides it's such a nice back, helps avoid walking.. Now if you could head for the staff room, I fancy a cuppa!
Hold on a tick... what's with the "Edusupporter" bit? Pay? Did I miss something or has someone missed out on my contribs in the past...
Ah must have come in after my contribs.. Ah well... Thanks for the explanation.
Could always donate a few more squid
Helps pay for nice things like new servers no doubt
oh and gives you more PM Space
Right now there's new car, new server (I'm moving my stuff too), and a new wife to worry about.. Edugeek comes low down on the pecking order right now sadly but then school number 5 has reared up so there may be hope yet
