Although oddly ... 400mb vanished since I initially looked ...

80993968 46945924  30703088  61%

Going to have to look into things to see where the disk space is being chewed up. Might be the newsletter software (its not the most efficient thing)...

I don't get it, why not just *gasp* ask Tuncer? I have it under good authority that he is, contrary to what some might believe, not actually Sauron. Why would he care anyway, if it's us doing the maintaining and fitting the bill?

*shrug*

Maybe when I find a lull I could bring it up.

Getting a free cert for https, would require a lot of work because of the needed server updates, code changes, change of in-use software.

31GB is a lot of room when its just 'images'. Plus, there is a pile of junk leftover crap on the server which is long expired and can be deleted.

Haha, Sauron's gaze - now that is a reference :) What about crowd-funding to setup a new server/domain, and export everything from here into the new server/domain and have everyone switch there

I've pondered it. But somehow we would have to convince tuncer to change the DNS to the new IP.... which requires talking to him about IMG, and "putting the site in someone elses hands" ...

I also don't have a lot of time to divert towards rebuilding this server/forum/code..... or allowed to spend towards it. There may be some free forum solutions out there to install and do a convert from IPB too ... but they most likely need new linux/apache/php/mysql to run...  that catch22 again.

Then there is the newsletter software... guh. Something old that would break under new php. As well as MacGameFiles running (a lifeless lump thats still active for no good reason... but its at least got secure SQL statements lol).

Guh, it spirals.

I mean, I can understand that Tuncer doesn't really want to invest much in IMG, but have you guys maybe considered some kind of crowdfunding? I could imagine at least a bunch of the regulars here would gladly donate some money. I certainly would.

Much like avoiding the gaze of Sauron... you do not want to get Tuncer's attention at IMG, cause he will likely just shut it all off entirely :)
