It's that time of year

Well it's come round quickly.

Renewal is going to be popping on our hosting in the next week and any donations towards the cause would be hugely appreciated.

The site has been it's most stable in years thanks to the much more efficient and secure hosting we moved to, any downtime has been minimal and I think we're all pleased with how it's going in terms of that stuff?

We could do with a few things added, a better backup facility which the hosts do offer for a little extra (a few GBP a month) along with a SSL certificate which would help with our rankings, make us look a bit more professional and also allow the site to do a bit more in terms verifying it's own connections aren't being spoofed, again that's a few more Pounds a month.

All that given means our hosting costs for a year are about £180.14 - excellent value for what we actually provide and get here I'm sure you'll all agree, so if anyone does have the ability to make any contribution, no matter how small, it would really be very gratefully received.

PayPal link is below and if anyone would prefer a bank transfer just PM me and I can send details. Of course any money over what we need will only be used towards FGUK and anything spent made crystal clear to all via the forum. Nobody is making anything out of this group at all.

Many thanks!

Flat broke until this time next week (Friday 13th) - but will stick summat in the pot then, if that's cool?

Also, once I've got the last few things done with my new flat, I'll be trying to wind up and launch the Twitch TV channel - whilst I don't expect to get much revenue from it yet, there will hopefully be another method of getting contributions...

You can get SSL certs for free from here; www.sslforfree.com/ - the catch is that these need to be updated regularly (30 days).

It does work best though if you have something that automates this; e.g. certbot.eff.org/lets-encrypt
