Laborheinz, I was wondering, how much does it cost to run the CEONSS set up? Is it going to be something sustainable in the long term? Are a few Euros here and there going to be enough to keep it going?

Hi Xac, our monthly costs currently are:

This board: 9€
Redirect server (for map downloads): 45€
Gameserver: 105€.

Makes a total of 159€.
Xac wrote:Is it going to be something sustainable in the long term?
Good question :D The plan is to lower our costs. For instance, the redirect service is going to be moved from the former hardware-root onto a much cheaper virtual machine soon. And the gameserver itself will be moved to a slightly cheaper (but still top-quality) provider next January. Then, in the long run, the costs should settle around 90€ in total per month. Our current set up is kinda overkill anyway, it's only the result of all the moves from one gameserver-ISP to another (which e.g. led to using our former main server as a redirect).

Well, every single buck helps :angelwings:

Wow, so getting on for 2000 Euros per year! You don't pay all that out of your own pocket do you?

We use CEONSS on a regular basis night after night and get it for free and don't even think about what it costs...makes me feel quite guilty!

lol well I hoped to get away without having to answer this question :wormie:
Of course, in the end someone has to pay it. The margin between costs and donations always lands on an owner's purse ;)

Whatever, our redirect service has moved onto a cheaper virtual machine recently, so our monthly costs got down to now 9+10+105 = 124 Euros.

Wow, that's really kind of you. Like really, really kind. I wish there was a hugging smiley. Imagine something between :thumbup: and :kiss: , please.

:o Heinz, you are one crazy dude! But I'm grateful for it :D

I hope your girlfriend doesn't find out or you'll be in trouble! :lol:

Must sort out my paypal account and chip in something.

I can't pay a lot, but I want to support you regularly. I tried setting up a monthly donation, but I'm not sure if it worked. I also got an error message for my donation, but Paypal shows the transaction as completed nonetheless. Can you check if you got 5€ today, Heinz?
