  1. It's manual, I will go check on it for you.
  2. Yeah, it expired at 3:00am today. I installed a new one after lunch today.
  3. I forgot to touch on the costs. Our collation is just over $200 a month. I budget it at $2500 a year. The forum software went up from $170/yr to $240/yr this fall (they hadn't changed the price for e over 10 years though). Our SSL certificate runs $399 every 2 years so $200/yr. We own the .net, .com, .org, and .info URLs which costs about $100/yr to keep the registrations up to date. To keep the hard drives on a 3 year replacement rotation it costs between $100/yr to $150/yr depending on the current market prices. Then there's all the hours I put in that would be billed at $75-$100/hr that I charge exactly $0/yr for 🙂. I'm sure that are a few minor incidentals I'm leaving out but it's pretty easy to see how quickly we reach an annual operating cost north of $3k. I don't mind sharing these numbers at all. I think I had a similar post on a recent years post where it was ask. I think this thing has far outgrew anything Tim ever imagined when he started it up.
  4. I have been kicked off of 3 different shared hosting companies due to a breach of contract. This forum dominates the processor (actually MySQL is what does it) and it isn't fair to the others sharing the space. We had one that was just $7 a month for hosting and their bandwidth caps were large enough based on our past use at the time. so we set up there and didn't last 60 days until I go the eviction email stating we were breaking their network. I think that was the last one before I rented a dedicated server then later we got our own and collocate it in Fort Wayne.
  5. The first beside me to know... This thing is being a pain in my back side this year. Every security fix that drops breaks something when I install it.
  6. sure, just pick the cash/check option and it will give you my mailing address
  7. I am already felling it. It was a long 8 week summer session. It's the first summer I've worked in a number of years. Right now... I feel it wasn't worth it.
  8. A couple female coworkers were discussing weather this week. One of them said that she liked snow and then started complaining about the weather man promising a foot and then she'd be disappointed because she only got a couple inches. To which I interjected into their conversation, "is this weather man someone you found on Tinder?" To which she seemed confused, but the second lady started choking on her lunch. Swear to God I thought I was going to have to make a call to 911 for her.
  9. That should be a temporary fix... for posting now. Trying to fit this in between classes and office hours. Usually office hours are free time :). I just got rid of a young lady who sat in here for almost 3 hours all by crying. Calc II is hard any how, but it's really hard when you lack the prerequisite algebra and trig skills... sorry just venting.
  10. It seems like there is usually an early season hiccup too. Perhaps it's the increase in traffic, perhaps is coincidental...
  11. Every little bit helps. My services are free, but you have to wait for me to fit anything needing work here into my normal work flow. One my wish list for here, I need a couple drives and want some RAM: Drives such as this one (we need two as replacements for aging drive, but the server would hold eight of them): https://www.newegg.com/p/1Z4-00WE-00082 RAM such as this set would fill the machine and replace a couple failing sticks that are throwing errors right now: https://cloudninjas.com/products/dell-288gb-18-x-16gb-ddr3-1333-mhz-pc3-10600r-ecc-registered-server-memory-upgrade-kit Those two things would go a long way towards seeing our 2011 server last many more years. ...just a wish list since you ask, but I wouldn't sent them back if then showed up on my stoop. 🙂
  12. Anything you find that appears to be broken by all means leave me a not in here. I'm still tracking issue, but at least it appears the basic functionality has been restored.
