    grf'chill! Server

    Post by phatprick on Sat Feb 14, 2009 8:05 am

    Well, so many people asked me to bring back TA mode to buksa! and yet they want a lot of people there and maybe win some good Pts... As i see it, very low number of people came on buksa! when it was running in TA mode, they all come rushing in when they saw parks in Rounds mode...
    So, ok if you want i could try to make another server on the same PC, i dont know will my performance drop but i do know that i would need your help to put parks every day from 14-02h (somewhere around that time), and always be ready if my connection drops to park them in spec as soon as i set the server up and running again...
    Now we have 7 parks, and if i create another server, i could host only 4 parks on my sister's PC, i doubt that i could be running 2 servers and few more TMN open in the same time... I would need someone to take other 3 parks to put them in spec, or maybe 2 people... But 1 person would be more acceptable, because if my connection drops, so that i dont have to call all of them to bring them back...

    Any volunteers?

    If you think that we should have another server, i will make it and run it on a test period, but if both servers starts to get a bit laggy, one of them has to go down!


    -----------------------------

    EDIT:

    Ok, this option drops in the water, because laggs would be abnormal! So the only REASONABLE solution for this is that we rent a high speed 24/7 server... This way we wouldnt have laggs, and no connection drops by my side, because i wouldnt be hosting the server... All this for just a couple of $$$ in monthly fee...

    So, monthly fee for the server is 15€ (~110kn) and today i was talking with few of our members who are willing to contribute... Because, the more of us contribute, the less money we pay individually... But, too many contributors may result negatively, because i dont know what is the lowest fee to deposit on bank account...

    I send mail to renting service and now waiting for reply... If someone else wishes to contribute, post in this topic, and we will discuss details as soon as i get reply, and someone confirms the lowest amount of deposit on bank account... Their site also states that if the server doesnt work for 5 days in one month, we get a full refund for that month, but i would like to trade it for the next months rent...

    If this works out well, then i would be in good position to set another server working just in time attack mode on my PC! But, we will see...

    Here is the website from renting service so you dont think i would get a piece of your money Wink
    Link

    And if this all works out, later i could setup Donations page if someone from the outside wishes to contribute Very Happy

    EDIT 2:

    Now i found 2x better offer for just a little more money, price 25$ (~125kn). i would like to choose this one, you can see that this is way better offer than the first one!

    Link

    EDIT 3:

    We better make it quick because server was half full all night... 17/23 people on server, and i cant leave PC on all night every day... Those electric bills wont pay them selves! Wink

    Now this is pretty amazing... my PC was off entire morning until 16h, and as soon as i get the server online it was FULL in 15min! Not only it was full entire time, but in the next 15min it rejected 60 people because it was full (ok, it rejected some peolpe who cant even enter because of the rank)...

    I already sent 2 emails to that second provider, because in the time i was writing this post my router already disconnected and crashed the server! Evil or Very Mad We need this as soon as possible!

    I will post more details as soon as i get some answers from providers!
