Well, my life is kinda unstable at the moment, and that affects my other projects, like this one. There is alot of things behind this website that you cannot see who is being worked on, but this website is kinda put on hold for a while.
Though, i want to share something fast before i sign off again :
Please, stop renting expensive dedicated servers for personal use, if you dont REALLY need it. My monthly costs right now is only 20 euro / month, and that gives me :
-2 dedicated epyc cores, actually pretty fast
-160gb nvme storage
-8gb ddr4 ecc memory
-2.5gbit port, 80TB traffic, on a decent network
-Unlimited mass storage with a gsuite account, google drive and rclone. Works flawless
This setup now runs :
-4 Websites, including this and most of the stuff u find here
-Plex library, a little over 55TB as i write this, but used to be twice that
-All my personal emails, with DNS records to gmail if the vps for some reason goes down
-Daily full system backup, pushed to google drive
-And probably alot more that i dont really want to mention public, but lets just say the torrent protocol is also used alot here
If you have good solutions to get the same or better specs, for the same or better price, let me know. I dont really think this can be beaten, if you need the cpu horsepower. Its fine for Plex, as long as you direct play 1080p and 4k content. If you really need to transcode, you might want to step it to 4 cores.
That was the pep talk of today. There is alot of plans and work going on in the backround, but life bites me in the ass at the moment. Living in a camper, designed for hot summers, in Norway at the moment, with very limited power, is a challenge. Ill make due, and it will get better, but there i said it, that is the reality at the moment.
Thank you for the emails asking for updates here, and the people who ask if everything is ok, there is actually quite alot of emails comming in regarding this now. THANK YOU!
