There's Life went down for about 15 hours. I was unable to get it back up immediately because our hosting provider was unable to be reached until this morning (European time). The problem had to do with a misconfigured firewall.
I'm sorry for the inconvenience, and this problem will never occur again.
(Apparently we have a habit of being down for several hours during the first week of January. Last year some upgrades had to be made. :P)
Thank you so much to everyone who has donated. ❤️
Hello everyone, good morning or $timeofday. I hope you are all doing well.
There's Life, like most Mastodon instances, accepts donations to keep things running. We don't display advertisements nor do we sell your personal information. Instead, we depend on your generosity to pay for hosting.
If you'd like to donate, you may do so via PayPal by sending to the address: email@example.com
Have a good day and God bless!

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.
Maybe. I know of some code I could modify to do that. I would have to figure out how to put scripts into the user facing website though. I will look into it. :-)
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.
