See this reply for an update. You guys and gals are awesome
I really hate writing this, but I’m officially desperate and this does directly affect this site, along with several others.
Here’s the situation regarding the server itself:
Earlier this month someone running a badly misconfigured bot caused a massive bandwidth overage on the server. Originally it was $250 but I got them to cut it in half on the condition I pay $75 of it by midnight tomorrow night. Right now that’s not looking like it’s going to happen, meaning I’ll have to pay the full $250, and that’s on top of the normal monthly fee.
On top of that my wife hit a deer last week which totaled the car. Fun times as she only has liability and despite the severe damage to the car no one in it was actually injured. We now looking at having to get a new car. This is on top of moving into a new apartment the second week of march.
Basically, we had several planned expenses that while they were stretching out budget we would have been fine. The universe decided to throw us a hell of a curveball and gave us some unexpected expenses.
Essentially, in addition to what income we have we need at least $850 to cover everything, and that’s still going to leave us hurting a bit.
If you can help out at all, you can use this link to help via paypal.
I hate to state the obvious, but if the bandwidth overage at a minimum isn’t covered then the server will be shut off and there’s nothing I can do about it. And yes, covering the overage is my top priority and I am asking everyone I can think of for help but most of the replies have been in the negative or only add up to about $20 right now.
if you want to help and can’t use paypal, feel free to PM to discuss alternatives.
