Site moving or closing .....
« on: 2018-08-01 08:22:30 »
Hello everyone[/size]
I'm consider to close down the site here, but would like to see if there is someone out there that would like to continue the life of the site.
I will "give" it to someone that will take the work and have the knowledge to run the site.
You need some Apache, MySql and PHP knowledge.
I will also give you a hand transferring the data and site if you want to.
The only thing I will demand is that you continue running the site for free, no advers and that you are not selling the content or site again for money.


Anyone ?

    I don't have the skill or expertise to take over the site,  but did want to say thank you for running it till now.

        Thank you all for nice words :-)[/size]

        Its not so that I will close it down "now" - its mote looking for options - and I have someone already indicated that they will consider to bring it further :-)

        Today I'm running all servers in my own basement, but internet connection, power and not to forget cooling do cost a bit and also time needed for running the database servers, the web servers, mail servers etc etc do take some time.

        I'm therefor looking for options to take everything down - and stop all the servers totally.

        This site is only 1 of 18 services I'm running today - so if we look at work included for this site alone - It's not much, but for running everything - it's a bit to much for me at the moment :-)

          Thank You STeiner.  I have very little computer skills.  I do think the tech manuals are invaluable.  Is there a way to just keep the reference manuals active for download? .  I use them all the time.....  Like bleeding air from the radiator...invaluable IMHO

              Greeting Mr Steiner.  I tried to move some of your tech manual files onto a thumb drive for future use.  The problem is it seems that i have to open each of the hudreds of files individually before I can save them.  is there and easier way or do you plane to maintain the service manuals?  I find them very valuable and would even pay a subscription if required.  That you for your many years of volunteer service to this site

                Would you consider keeping the site if you had someone to help run the site?

                Hello everyone and thank you all for all the nice words :-)


                No, I will be moving to Austria in a some weeks - and the servers will not come with me.
                I will close down all my servers in fact....

                  what type of servers are you running?  If you are moving and can’t keep them, I would consider taking over.  I am a CITO (Network Admin) and do some hosting for a few clients, so I have the ability to run the site.  You are welcome to email me or call me directly to discuss this in more detail.


                  Thanks,
