    Sim-Outhouse Bandwidth Donation Drive 2017

    As most members know Ickie handled the donation drive for over 10 years. In Ickie's absence we starting the Donation Drive for 2017, but we are a little behind at this time. Normally Ickie has fresh quotes from the hosting service and we know what the next year will cost us. At this point we do not know what our total costs for 2017 will be.

    For that reason the amount we are trying to raise is the same as last year. This we expect will cover our bandwidth, hosting service, domain registration, software licensing fees, maintenance costs for both our .com and .net servers.

    Since we are in a shrinking community it has proven harder each year to fund both servers. Of the two servers the .com server is our core and is the server we absolutely must retain. If we are uable to fund both servers by the end of January we will strongly consider eliminating the .net server. Like past years that decision is hard to make. The bill for the .net server falls at the beginning of feb and the .com follows at the beginning of March. This is backwards from how we would like it but we have always been able to pull through in the end.

    For the new members here is the break down on the functionality of each server.

    www.sim-outhouse.com - Linux server - Primary website/forums and file library.

    www.sim-outhouse.net - Windows Server - Backup website/forums, TeamSpeak3, FS Host (must run on a Windows server because of Direct Play requirements), Colaboration tool for a small number of developers and .com website/file library backup location.

    We look forward to being here for another year.

    Note the forum software is not moving the confirmed donations to the new Charter Member 2017 group. I am manually doing that part. If you don't get moved within a few days PM me.

    Good morning everyone,

    Just a friendly reminder that this is the annual SOH donation drive to keep the website going! Dave has done a great job letting you know in this thread what your funds pay for, so let's make this drive a success!

    Good afternoon,

    Just wanted to pop in and say thank you for all of the generous donations so far, and the kindness that has been expressed by people in praising SOH and passing their best onto Ickie. I look forward to being the SOH librarian again for the coming year, so please keep the donations coming in!

    Question Reply...

    Worthless and Oglivie,

    Did you send it to the new snail mail address that Dangerous Dave posted or to Ron's address? If it's the latter, it may not have made it there considering the circumstances.

    I've got the new address for Dave's mail at the Newshawk Forum. I will send donation this weekend.
    Thanks for the heads up.

    All is well!

    I checked the address for mailing with DD via a PM. He directed me to his post at the Newshawk Forum.

    Gosh! I don't usually log in from the Home, but go straight into the Forum, so I missed the news about Ron Larson alias Ickie. Just saw the note on the Homepage. So sorry to read about this.

    Icon22 So why should a member or fan of SOH donate?

    Good afternoon,

    As we try to finish our fundraising effort for this year, a question that often is thought of or voiced is "why should I donate?" In addition to keeping the website ad-free, (our little gremlins recently notwithstanding) most of our members upload exclusively, or at least primarily, to SOH, rather than other sites. The community in CFS2 is also very strong for those of us who remain here or have come back, and members are always coming up with new items for this sim, and this community continues to make our sim grow!

    The screenshots should help to emphasize just how far we've come, and what keeping this website going will allow us to do!

    I am with you on that Rami,
    Actually, I can not really think of any other site that
    has an active forum with uploads , downloads or offers
    more CFS2 choices than the SOH, I am aware of two
    others that offer uploads ....BUT none with an active
    forum...and then of course the FFS that only offers down-
    loads that are submitted and/or posted by me.

    If anyone should know of a more active CFS2 forum, by
    all means, please let me know.
