Well, wasn't that an interesting month? Aside from the DDoS itself, we got a burst of traffic from downed sites. Our current server is quite able to handle this, but we found a few things to tweak so that we're even better prepared for the next traffic spike.
for his continued work on FA2IB, which has helped hundreds of artists, writers and commissioners to back up their work in the past couple of weeks; most notably, it now detects references to users who have Inkbunny accounts. We're not looking to replace FA - for a start, our age and content limits differ - but it's good to be prepared in case one site is temporarily unavailable.
We're not planning major infrastructure changes, as we've done quite well with what we have, and expect it to handle future growth in the mid-term. That said, our hosting costs run to almost $4000/year - so, as always, my thanks to our donors for keeping the disks spinning.
