How much do you pay to have your email forwarded and sent from the domain name? Certainly it's not free, right? Do you use G Suite or your domain host's mail servers
On a similar note, how much do you spend per month to keep the site running?

It's provided with my the domain host, it isn't expensive at all. Most sites like GoDaddy or Namecheap provide 1 email along with your domain for something like 2-5 dollars a year. Not expensive at all.

>On a similar note, how much do you spend per month to keep the site running?
Always passively browsing from when I wake up to when I go to sleep. In terms of the technical side (new code and server maintenance) something like 10-20 hours a week.
you're not unemployed, are you?

I have a minimum wage job that I work at right now. I only work a couple of days a week.

What does your build pipeline look like? :0 Do you push to a repo and run tests? Or do you just push to a repo, then move the files to a server, and then restart

Do you use docker containers? How many servers do you use to keep the site running? How much do they cost?

Do you think it's healthy to spend so much time on this website?

I have a Ubuntu Server running LynxChan which is the main live site, and I run a local version on my personal machine. I make changes on my machine and push them to the main server.

>Do you use docker containers? How many servers do you use to keep the site running? How much do they cost?
>docker LOL
No I don't use docker, not entirely sure what it is actually, haven't worked with it but I often see people memeing it. I have 3 servers for the 16chan, 1 for the site itself, 1 for the analytics platform (Matomo - FLOSS), and 1 for what will be blog.16chan.xyz. They cost me all together around $45 a month. That price is soon to spike with services I plan on adding (a better CDN and more powerful systems as traffic continues to grow).

Do you think it's healthy to spend so much time on this website?
It makes me happy :^) But maybe not, who knows?

O yes, I forgot to mention, all of the source code for everything can be found here: https://16chan.xyz/.static/pages/links.html

Sweeet. How often do you back up the database and images? Do you have it automated?

Daily backups that are stored for 3 days.

>>739
Sorry Anon, you didn't scare me away. I just missed your message :3

Honestly 663, I'm really impressed by you. When I first saw your first thread on /g/, I thought you were just another script kiddie who could steal an open source project and host it for a few dollars a month. But you've proven me wrong. I am honestly quite amazed with how much effort you've put into this site so far. I mean it from the bottom of my heart.

Is your job tech related? If not why not pursue a job in tech?

>Is your job tech related? If not why not pursue a job in tech?
No I have a wagie job. I am planning to get a job in tech but my city is insanely competitive. I have some internship experience and my personal projects are okay, but it seems really hard to get a leg in the industry. I have a CS degree, maybe you have some advice? (I went to a non-prestigious school)

Also, thank you for your kind words, Anon, they genuinely mean a lot right now. I'm not in the best place right now so thank you so much.
