I briefly slipped in to the old world thought “oh no, what about the price of keeping the Fleming network up on launch” then I remembered I am an idiot and we will be donating hard disk space from home.
The alpha network has been very useful while demonstrating the network to new recruits, and has generated a few thousand euros back in to the market - hopefully back in to the maidsafe funding. I didn’t know maidsafe where being sold to fund the project.
I think, that 5% of monthly operating costs is quite large… 3K could be a salary or two.
With Fleming just around the corner, why spend that extra few 3K payments.
I may suffer withdrawal symptoms, but considering the above, yea. Let’s close it in preparation for Fleming. Reduce as much financial pressure as possible.
So operating costs down to 57K per month.
Is there anyone out there with a hosting company that can donate resources? But again, if alpha 2 is diverging away from what Fleming will be, it probably isn’t worth keeping it alive.
