Important Site News

It has been quite a while since I’ve done anything with this site.

I used to publish at least one song here every day.  Now I’m lucky if I remember I have this site.

I used to get an average of 15,000 hits a day here.  There also used to be 2,500+ songs posted here.  Most of my audience were deployed in Afghanistan and Iraq, and it was a regular source of music that they could stream.

But then the DoD decided to block my IP and domain.  The hits dropped down to around 7,500, and then eventually dropped to about 500 a day.

After a while, I started drifting away from posting on this site.  I stopped paying the fees required to post many of these songs since the money was coming out of my pocket and not from a monetized platform.

A couple of years ago I removed the music posts with the intention of starting over.  Well, my life started getting in the way, and I’ve had to curtail much of my posting here.

This site is now located on an over-booked shared web server at DreamHost.  It barely runs on that server, and DreamHost is telling me that it needs to be on a VPS or an actual private server.

So I have to make a decision:  Do I want to spend a butt-load of money to maintain a site that I haven’t paid attention to in almost a year?

Or do I just want to shut it down and park the domain for a while?

Your lack of comment here will help decide that real quick.
