HELP! High load and some birch.

:( I have too many visitors at the moment (SD15 around the corner?!) and my current web provider has moved me to a private server to prevent problems for others on the same hotel. That means that I will have to pay lots of money (above what I normally pay) if I want to keep my site going. They’re very kind and will not charge extra for the moment but only if usage is below 300MB of memory load and I have no idea how all of you could fit into that cramped space.. 300MB, what is that?

I can give you some top secret numbers about my site – you’re about a thousand strong every day. Some days less, some days more. My site is ad free and I get loads of emails from you everyday that I try my best to answer, and to be honest – I love those e-mails. :) So don’t stop writing just because you don’t wanna support my site, just consider it.

So my pledge to you is, please consider donate something to help me with my new web server. And YES I will consider getting an iPad as a gift! :D. My current provider is since 2007 and overall I’m very happy with them. I also noticed that my site is much faster now on this new server, anyone?

I also give you these birch trees to enjoy. :) Photo’s taken earlier today with the 120-300 at 300mm and IS050.  f3,5. Actually worth looking at 100%. Such incredible bokeh! :D

    Carl, happy to help, but I will point out that the donate button you have here does not tell Paypal what address to use in the query parameters. I assumed your standard email address would work, but it might be nice to have that preconfigured for people.

  2. Hi Robert, Sorry for the inconvenience. I selected another option now, perhaps this works better? I’m not as skilled as I would like to be with these things.

  3. This morning I saw that I’ve now have around four-five month of server time paid for by you!! (one month is an minimum extra of $15 if below 300MB) It really feels so so good! And you really do come from all around the world. A big THANK YOU!

    Hi Carl, ijust starting using one that gives 3GB space and free traphic for around 250skr a year

    Of course that is a big company, seems reliable though, maybe it has the technical features you need?


  5. Hi Aurin!

    I used before, prior to moving to dreamhost and I wasn’t satisfied at all. has (had at least) really slow site architecture and visitors from overseas and asian countries had to wait way too much. Also, there was some other issues as well. Support is very limited.

    Dreamhost has, even if they decided my site was a bit big for “normal” use, been very cooperative and straight forward with emails that goes to a person that I can talk to – not just a “no reply” type of connection. I have already uploaded around 60GB of images to different FTP accounts connected to my and don’t allow that at all.

    I guess when you have a blog that is growing, you have to pay the consequence.

    But thanks a lot for your heads up. :)

    Ah, yes i also prefer having a person to speak to (i used another much more expensive domain for my old site where i often got help by phone:)

    I actually posted the message because i had trouble going into paypal;)

    Look forward to hearing when your wedding shall be;)

  7. ahrg. Problem with paypal again? mm.. what’s the problem this time? And the wedding, yes. You wanna come? :D

  8. aurin says:

    Hm, first paypal wrote i could not use my bank account for this kind of payment, yet on second attempt it seemed to accept it (would be nice to automatically donate 1kr each time i visit your page:)

    And yes, i would love to come visit, as i am planning my summer in between finland and germany should definately be space for going to sweden;)
