One Red Nail

A statement on the importance of philosophy and morality in daily life.

v1.2, 2020-11-19, Max Kaye. (revisions)

I no longer endorse this idea

I have changed my mind about this idea. I'm leaving the rest of the document (after this section) as it is for the moment. I might change things later.

<continued from #general>

Sven Mason [15:52] I have not used Digital Ocean before (where the forum is currently hosted), it seems like there is more admin involved than eg AWS, but it is cheaper. Maybe AWS would take less admin resources than Digital Ocean once it is setup? Also AWS being the larger perhaps there is a higher chance supporters will have experience working with it? (this is if we chose a self-hosted environment). We could stay with Digital Ocean if Max wanted and try to fix what is going wrong there, to do that we could discuss admin access protocol with @max?

Max Kaye [16:51] Whoops - posted reply in #general @sventhebarbarian - Auto updates actually stopped working - it's manual updates that are breaking 😕 DO and AWS are equiv in terms of admin - DO is actually a bit nicer I think bc you can reset pws easily and share nodes much more easily (via a team) than you can with AWS

You can’t perform that action at this time.
