As you all know, there was some downtime for theres.life. The administrator was gone for a week and did not have access to a computer and did not even know it was down until an hour ago.
The problem has now been resolved, and we are working on keeping it from happening again. Most importantly, we are looking for someone to help with emergency access to the infrastructure.
Now we can again enjoy this community of those who live in the new life in Christ.
Our goal is $200 to cover our expenses for the next year.
Anyone who would like to donate can do so via PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org or via cryptocurrency (send a direct message to @masterofthetiger to donate this way).
I do not plan to release the names of the donors, but if you would like to be listed in a page on There's Life, please send a direct message to this account.
This account will periodically post updates on our progress.
@masterofthetiger ("I" in this post) has been told about a hosting service called SSDNodes. Switching to it would greatly cut down on the costs it would take to run the Life Network since they offer higher resource servers for low prices.
I will have trouble paying for the expenses in the near future, and having this covered would ensure the long term reliability of the Life Network. For example, that pesky timeline bug should be a thing of the past.
In addition, renting a server with higher resources would allow for better service of There's Life and other associated services (such as There's Code and Let's Write). It would also allow for the possibility of more services for the convenience of our members (a chat server may be possible as well).
This is only possible if we are able to gain enough money up front to pay for it. This is why I am starting a fundraiser here to be able to improve the Life Network and ensure a more stable future.
Specific information will be provided in the next post.
Thank you to the amazing people who make There's Life a great place to be through their participation.
