Free Republic and Sister Site Stormfront Having Server Problems
FR has now been down for three days. Stormfront, having learned from the great JimRob, is using their sister site’s griftathon techniques to keep themselves on line.
“Thanks to you, we are beginning badly needed server upgrades, which will make our site faster and more resistant to the daily denial of service attacks from anti-Whites. We’ve had the same servers for well over 2-1/2 years, even reducing server capacity in February 2011 to cut costs…..
As most of you know, I hate begging for money. But, unlike other large websites and radio programs, we have no paid advertising. Nor do we get government or corporate grants. And we don’t have a tax exempt endowment fund with over $200 million, like the anti-White Southern Poverty Law Center (aka the “Poverty Palace”). We have no financial reserves, and we frequently fall short of our modest monthly fundraising goal…..
Many of our visitors are regulars, many are just curious or sometimes even hostile, but many others are new people seriously looking for answers. We hope to keep access open to guests….
But with our success come bills. Big, scary bills which must be paid every month. I’ve reduced our monthly server costs to $2542”
Next the latest howler from the grifter-in chief himself.
Latest update from John as of approx 11:00 pm PST 2/20/13: Still working on the new system. Then he’s got to figure a way to get the data off the old system and onto the new. Say’s he’s cobbling together a Frankenstein SCSI box out of our old servers to get the job done. Then he’ll have to do a consistency test which takes hours. Could be up tomorrow afternoon if no more problems pop up.
$3 million bucks in “contributions” and this is what they get. It’s a beautiful thing watching rugged individualists in action.
