Last night I sent spam to everyone who has ever registered for Mfop, asking for some donations to pay for the new hosting arrangement. I learned that spam pays. It makes me happy. What doesn't make me happy though, is the fact that since I singed up for the new hosting deal a month ago, I have been watching the server and testing the support, and everything seemed to be on the up and up, so I figured it's OK to move Mfop over there.
This morning I was horrified to find that within a half hour of spamming everyone, I wasn't able to connect to the server or use Mfop. I was able to fix it in about twenty minutes by hitting the refresh button on my browser again and again while I attempting to connect with SSH every minute or so.
I noticed that some other unrelated sites were unreachable in the US around the same time, and am hoping it was just a cyber terrorist attack, not a regular occurrence. I don't want to have to keep moving around all the time.
Anyway, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who donated! It has releaved a lot of stress to not having to worry about paying everything... now I just have to worry about that dang server.
