Things may seem especially slow at moments, but that's because we're changing settings on the backend to try and squeeze out some more performance over the last few days. This will probably continue for a few more days.
However it's increasingly looking like we just need to upgrade our hardware to the next level. At some point we can't optimize the software performance any more, and we're reaching that point. Even on the slowest day, saidit still has 25k unique visitors. The fact we've been able to run all this on a total cost of $51/mo for so long is a minor miracle.
Please consider donating, because saidit will definitely need it once we upgrade our hardware in the next few weeks:
Or if cryptos are more your style you can donate some here:
If we had the financial support for it, we would upgrade the site tomorrow and have everything running super fast all the time again! Our current expenses are $51/mo, but after the upgrade, our new expenses will be $91/mo. Our current donation income is $42/mo.
So instead of being $9 short every month like we currently are, after the hardware upgrade we will be $49 short every month. If donations could close this new shortage we'd be golden, and it would again prove the donation model is a sustainable concept rather than having ads. So if you could help out saidit in a financial way, even if it is a small gift, it would most definitely be appreciated. Thank you.
