Save Punkas

Postby PertHJ » Fri Jun 19, 2020 12:14 pm

So Matt has cancelled the hosting of the site and has stopped paying for hosting of the forums, but is happy for someone to take it over.

No idea what that involves but happy to contribute $$

It's something like $20/month for the site, $30/month for the forum and $50/year for the domain name.

Well I can potentially erase the $20 + $30 by just chucking it up the guts of my website which I already have.

$50 sounds steep for a domain. I use GoDaddy and looks like even they are going up at $30/year. Transfer to eg. Namecheap and it should be more like $14/year. Pay for 10 years at a time to get best price.

I dont know what you computer nerds are on about. But am happy to throw some Australian dollary doos at keeping this place open. Without it I will never know what condiments Sams having on his chip sandwiches

I still get enough low level entertainment out of this to be happy to contribute.

Agree with Dead Kid, those hosting prices sound a bit cooked.

No. Fuck off. Let it die.

Also happy to contribute.

Subbies, you could always just fuck off...? You're welcome of course, but it's an idea.

:? Bitch lips? Not sure I've heard that from anyone over the age of 12 before.

I'm not the one complaining about being here. I get that you're just trying to bait us, but it's a bit weird tbh.

i dont remember the details for the main site, but $30/month seems high for the forums. fairly sure its on the OVZ1 plan here https://cheapvps.co.uk/plans-openvz.php for about $7nzd a month.

you'll need to grab a backup before the server goes down if moving it elsewhere, maybe matt can send you the ssh details pert. i left backup scripts in /backup, just run punkasbackup and punkasdbbackup then save the resulting .tar.gz files and they can be restored onto another web/sql server somewhere. the existing server hasn't been updated in nearly a decade, its running an ubuntu release from april 2011.

keep in mind anyone with access to the server or backups also has all the chat and PM history since 2001, please keep them safe.

Just chuck a 1 dollar fee on Subcide's shitposts. That way Matt/Pert/whoever can make a profit on the side.

What infamous word beginning with K flummoxed Blair J back in the day?:
This question is a means of preventing automated form submissions by spambots.


No wonder punkas is dying. How the fuck is anyone trying to sign up to the forum supposed to know the answer to that?

Had to get signing up working somehow without allowing an influx of spambots. The question asks for one of the most universally well-known pieces of info among the PunkAs community so if you don't know the answer you've been living under a giant cock. I even put a hint in the question, because the answer rhymes with flummox. Hard to do better than that. Most people who hear about PunkAs but don't know the answer will almost certainly know someone who knows the answer, so they could just ask on Facebook or some shit.

But if you want to join and aren't yet part of the Punkas community, how the hell are you supposed join? It makes it a bit of a cool kids wankers club that you have to be in with the in-crowd to join.

It was always a bit of a cool kids wankers club. Except now it's adults. Kids don't do forums these days. All people need is some tenuous connection to the NZ punk scene and the desire to hunt for the answer.

Rigby, I'm assuming you're grumpy because you went to create a second account to start some shit. ;)

I'm sure he meant cool in a snide way too, a bit like this classic:

Well I was an uncool kid who hung around on the periphery of the Wellington punk scene in the late 80s/early 90s. Thought I was cool just because I knew lots of musos who knew 3 chords or the d beat. But yeah I love Bad Brains and Minor Threat and Discharge and all those other bands you're supposed to like.

No. Bogan Lenox wanted to create an account to stir shit. He messaged me to ask what the answer was.

Because he asked me and I had no idea either. But was able to find the answer eventually.

You have to admire Matt, that poor fucks been paying 50 squid a month for years so you sad cunts can shit post here, i think the novelty of having his own virtual version of the Saw movies must have worn off.
also the word wankox is far far more fitting.
