    FHC v3 (Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger)

    its that time of the year again.

    considering that there's been a derp or two on the forum recently i finally made the decision to move FHC once again to what hopefully will be its last location.

    we will be going once again to cloud based hosting, however this time it will be slightly distributed, cheaper and with far more resilience than we currently do, it will have 3 web front ends and 2 database servers (active/passive), everything has been set up and all i need to do is take a snapshot of the current database and change the DNS records.

    this will be happening this week, probably tomorrow afternoon.

    oh, and i gave all the boxes names, here they are if you even care:

    load balancer: haffrage.failheap-challenge.com
    web server 01: minion.failheap-challenge.com
    web server 02: tamber.failheap-challenge.com
    web server 03: rami.failheap-challenge.com
    database 01: helfix.failheap-challenge.com
    database 02: jalif.failheap-challenge.com

    edit: forgot to mention one of the better parts, if this works as intended the monthly costs for FHC will be cut from $80/mo to $50/mo

    So that means you'll have even more left over money from donations now?

    pretty much yeah, once i turn back this dedicated host i will most likely cancel all automatic donations since ads *should* be able to keep the site running on its own if they are as stable as they've been

    wallet has enough money to pay for around 2 years worth of hosting, of course donations would be welcome but they will no longer would be necessary to maintain the site up

    blue names are here to stay, if you donate post-move and you hadn't before you'll still get one.

    its more of a matter that donations are currently no-longer necessary, but if you feel like doing it go for it, i won't stop you.

    i just took a look at the FHC wallet and its sitting at around $1100 (i xfer frunds from paypal into a separate personal checking account) so we're good for a while currently (this includes both donations and ad revenue), the reason i use a checking account is mostly because adsense only deposits to bank accounts.

    oh and lolpaypal

    How do you do the taxes on something like that? Is FHC a business or do you consider it personal income?
