- While the new server on Dyjix have more RAM and storage than the current one for the same price, the old one on DigitalOcean is still more stable, so I prefer not moving out until the upgrade Dyjix is planning is done. The Minecraft server don't need much stability so far as we're on ask-an-admin-if-crashed basis for that, but it does need the RAM, so we're paying for both for the time being.
- I realized calc.news needs way more storage than I thought it would for media attachments (it's about 80 GB so far! The fediverse is pretty big), so I'm moving these media to Wasabi
. It's compatible with Amazon S3 and DigitalOcean Spaces and it's way cheaper than those. We also use DO Spaces for CW backups and it's likely to move to Wasabi as well in the future, it's pretty much the same price for the first 250 GB, as in $5/month. Except we can go up to 1 TB with that $5 on Wasabi. Note that I'm talking about object storage, not the same as a VPS so you still need one to run stuff on. Anyway, calc.news is likely to crash a lot until the move is complete, so hold on your horses if you're using it.
- I still can afford for all that for the forseeable future with my job and my mom's, no worries so far, but if you want to throw some money at my Patreon account
, that would be pretty helpful. That would make the servers and storage a bit more affordable and also fund development of Zarmina, I planned some big stuff with that... (Printed copies for sale? Maybe??? Who knows?)
So this is my little roundup on what's going on so far, have a great post-holidays
