Please don’t squat, you might “win” in the short run but you will get charges sooner or later.
Instead seek local organizations and churches who might be able to point you in the right directions and/or provide you assistance.
And in place of panhandling for cash (if it allowed), you might get better luck if you simply ask for donation(s) for what you are needing (i.e. food instead of money to get said food). To me it’s more understanding if a person on the streets ask for some bread than if they looking for $3 to get a loaf.
It’s honestly USUALLY not that difficult to dedicate sufficient time to prune a community here as needed within reasons. Beside a well moderated community is less likely to be spammed in the long run considering it will be less efforts than it’s worth.
Problems USUALLY arises because there’s a lack of moderation, not because new users should be pulled back or from being signed up. This is more evident in game servers and believe me I can tell them apart what’s a well oiled game server from one that isn’t. Same goes for online communities.
I am sorry but I am lost on what you means. I gotten a $30 5.25" Dual Hot Swappable 2.5" bays which each of the drives connected through the SATA interface (you plug the respected SATA cables in each bays’ end and the drives connections are literally “clicks into place”).
So I thought if the drives are on standby “hence I assume are therefore not spinning up/down” then I thought it safe to pulls them out. Since I thought they would not be doing anything if they are simply on standby.
But that is WHY they are filtering VPNs to be honest. Because as I been saying it just not worth it to keep VPN users online when the BULK of the spammers are using the same.
Even when you go out and buy something you probably gonna be asked to turn off your VPN or your order won’t be processed/requires additional steps. I know majority of hosting providers do at least.
Precisely I don’t think (as of now anyways) there a mean to “filters” VPN users effectively or otherwise general spam and such than to “cut the entire line off”.
Take the Wasp and Hornet spray that we had to apply on our porch. It is depressing that a bee had to die? Absolutely but we had to spray or else we would be “spammed” by wasps and hornets that could damage our rental.
Sometimes you have to take the “nuclear option” until more targeted solutions can be developed.
You still need to considers the costs of accepting said users though, even if you don’t likes it being done in such manners.
Just think of anti-fraud measures which denying VPNs are apart of. If you are a small firm and you need to protect your business aren’t you inclined to do the same exact measures and tell your FraudLabsPro to ignore/caution against VPN orders?
Whens it comes to VPNs, there is just TOO MUCH risks involved with VPN users to allow openly for larger applications and businesses. Compared to “ordinary users” due to the privacy nature of VPNs.
As I said before, if it would take 10x the amount of resources to let a legitimate user “in” compared to a “normal” user then why shall a business expel 10x the resources to let that happen for the FEW legitimate VPN users in comparison?
This isn’t news, any major platforms and even commercialized businesses will block/limits VPNs. They just not worth the risks associated with them. And as businesses there are not worth the “risks” to “capture leads from” which I agrees in a business sense.
After all if you gotta deal with say 1,000 spammers why let that 1 “legit guy” be allowed? If the usual loads is non VPNed spammers 100 per legit non VPN user 1 for instance?
Thanks you for the confirmation on that, well as soon as PCLiqulidations hopefully get back to me to the inquiry I sent. I might be able to get one of their refurbs. Hopefully before it actually does dies. But I sent them the email so I can confirm they can indeed do somethign for me and what they charge for shipping.
ServerMonkey for example was out of their minds for charging $14.95 shipping on a $20 2.5" disk. Since they charge shipping by the flipping LB, not by the actual item’s weight.
I am very glad to see and no worries, thanks for bringing this to my attention so I was able to provide this additional information in case somebody can more possibly inform me if this something to continue worrying about or not.
As for data backup, this array is to holds them from my cloud Backup VM and anything else that is too large for me keep on my 60GB SSD for proper backing up to my external USB HDD for my personal data. So the “bulky” data are backed up at least twice (Backup VM and the HDD array) WHILE the REALLY important stuffs (like updateish password manager data and such) are backed up to the external in addition to the HDD array (personal data doesn’t goes to the Cloud Backup VM).
I wouldn’t even let me run the long test so I am scrambling for options ideally before the LVM array degrades and if nothing else before the array dies completely. But I am not sure who to buy refubs from if PCLiquations doesn’t get back to me on them and ships them at a reasonable shipping fee for ~$20 devices.
Microcenter doesn’t even have any 7200RPM refub drives in stock even…
I didn’t even let me check even running the long test twice so yea I am considering where I can get a refurb unit for around 20 bucks or less (around 25 bucks total I am hoping to reach after shipping fees).
Microcenter doesn’t carries any (only 5700RPM units which I don’t trust the 5kRPM devices), flipping ServerMonkey charges shipping by the absolute LBs so it’s $14.95 or what not even to get a 20 dollars drive…
I am trying to see if PCLiquidations can help me and if that doesn’t goes far I might need to look on E-Bay.
I sure had! I was attempting to “pulling some wires” on the “less than ideal” Original Minetest Pterodactyl Egg and came up with… https://github.com/parkervcp/eggs/pull/1248
To this day I am still using it in it’s PR’ed form that I PR’ed to them. :)
I know this is for domains and not their hosting services but man they got work to do if they wanna be “truly” green. The fundamentals principles of ANY green endeavors is to reduce waste as much as possible, forcing you to buy more RAM for more CPU vCores and being capped at 200GB of disk space isn’t the way to go green.
I rather still use LunaNode and make my impacts there as they actually focus on reducing wastes and your bill in the process. Don’t need a VM but wanna save the IP and contents? Shelve it. Don’t need it anymore? Delete it. Need some CPU here and there or even on a regular basis? You can use your “CPU Points” and even buy yourself out of any throttling if you like.
Thus I feels like LunaNode is the way to go IF you know how to take full advantage of their systems through their panel and/or API. Than just calling VMs green because they are ran off of turbines.
Beside If you book it through Toronto, you can be reasonably assured a good hunk of power will be green to boot. :)
Interesting I thank you for looking into all of that of me so yea I don’t think Portainer is gonna work then. As I assumed it was similar to Pterodactyl but for general containers. Like file manager, editor, etc.
As for minetesthosting.com I tried contacting them a year ago but haven’t seen anything from them. Though I suppose it may be worth reaching out to them once more now it been awhile? If so I gonna see what another guy is willing to do as they wanted me to file a ticket as they reached me on the forums. I wonder if they “fix me up” instead.
Still thanks for doing everything in regards to Portainer even though it wasn’t as “point and click” as I thought it would be.
Interesting, the docs are confusing though even in https://documentation.portainer.io/v2.0/deploy/ceinstalldocker/ it doesn’t seems to explains standalones clearly. I am confused if I would need both a “standalone” host or if I would need to also install the agent? If I do does the agent needs to installed on yet another VPS?
I am just looking for GUI based so I can be considerably more productive than Tmux, nano and all of that jazz. It’s considerably easier for me to open a web page and see the console, power controls, file manager, edit on the fly, etc.
For instance i find it a bit frustrating that I gotta…
Just to cut the power or to start it back up…
Editing a file?
On a GUI I can do the above with a number of reduced steps.
And it does matter since I am usually making changes to the game server often (once or twice daily usually). I can also switch to console, game’s server resources, etc in a few mouse clicks. Instead of figuring out what’s linux commands I gotta do to get there, what’s packages I need, etc etc etc.
