This past week in the world of UNB was a trying one. The site went down for a majority of three days. The worst part it was beyond our control. We are still in the process to move to a better server! The move should happen very soon. (I’m crossing my fingers it happens sooner than later).
When things happen like the server, it helps if you guys join our Patreon. It allows us to do unexpected things and help hiring professionals to assist us. After the server went down and I made the decision to move to a new server. I had a crash course lesson on how to manage a web server. This is great knowledge to have and will assist me in the future. However, having to pay to move the site is an expense I wasn’t expecting.
What is Patreon? It’s a way for content creators to ask readers to support them. Putting on UNB takes a lot of people and resources so every bit helps! As I have said before, we haven’t taken any advertising outside the side ads. Ads, be it video or in the blog feed, are annoying to me. I think the reader experience is one of the most important things to UNB.
Where will your money go? As noted this week it will definitely upgrade our technology. The server we were on was a bit dated in both hardware and software. You should notice a difference when it’s finally moved. Also we are going to get new video equipment (software and hardware), and new gear to review!
