Forum Members,

With the COVID-19 virus causing many to work from home, hopefully folks will have time to contribute to the forums. If things don't pick up soon, I'm going to start scaling back on the resouces I facilitate.

I have begun building a new server instance to host the forums I facilitate . This will cut the costs 4X. The sandbox is.going away and projects will be moved to Gitlab. I hope to have this complete by the end of March with no disruptions.

I was able to reduce my monthly AWS bill in half removing snapshots and storage I allocated but haven't used in years. I paid a couple grand for idle services I never used. A lesson I hope others don't have to experience.

On a positive note, Comcast came out today to fix a wiring issue and drop off one of their latest modems. I went from 33 mbits to 318 mbits by the time he left.
