Been a lurker for a while, and don't post much but happy to help! Forums seem to be a dying breed, and I much prefer them to newer alternatives as I'm too old to get into them nowadays. This site is a wealth of information, Most gamers get a lot out of what the community here brings with all of their knowledge.

Hey, maybe all of these content creators with patreons on youtube should chip in considering they're most likely reciting info from here in their videos. :P

Have you considered DigitalOcean instead of AWS? Much cheaper for something this simple.

I'll certainly look into it and see. One of the biggest spanners is turning out to be operating system since Redhat have essentially killed CentOS.

I found tonight that the backlash has been so huge that they're offering free small scale production use under their 'developer' program so I'm signing up for that as we speak. You have to start paying for support and access to their solutions sections but that's fine, I don't need them and even if I did I .. have access via works corporate account anyway ;) I just can't go tagging personal non-work systems to it.

You can probably get away with DigitalOcean's standard droplets and just pick a size that works for you. It's probably the cheapest VM you can get that isn't total dogshit in terms of reliability. As for CentOS deprecation, yeah, that sucks. However, if whatever you're running provides Debian packages to install the software you should be good to run things on Ubuntu. Feel free to HMU in a DM if you could use a hand with anything. I'd probably get a migration plan in place to move off of CentOS since that's going to be a dead end by the end of the year anyway.

Oh god I'm never going near Ubuntu again. I had to deal with that at work years ago, I built an automated deployment system for laptops and everything was a pain including them regularly being bricked by patches. Since reinstall typically requires server swapout in this instance it needs to be something with really long legs too. RHEL8 gives 2029, by which time SuperMegaCovid 2.0 Turbo+ [Mongolia Label] will have wiped us all out.

LoL. Ubuntu is the dominant OS distribution in the data center today, but whatever works : )

Sorry to hear the bills are so high - although I have no experience with a site of this scale, I have used pair.com for 20 years and they are really top-notch and have never raised my price since 1998 when I signed up. Certainly worth a look, IMHO.

in terms of monthly contributions, consider flattr.com, which at the moment is very easy to use and has zero fees (can't imagine that lasts forever, but it's a nice perk).
