Our provider, hosteurope.de shut down our servers due to "political incorrectness" submitted by Atko to announcements

Terribly sorry to hear this. I really admire what you're doing and will be donating what I can by PayPal... while it's still open.

I'm really worried your PayPal account will be the next thing to go since they have disabled the accounts of many people with a similar cause. Please make sure you are cashing it out regularly. It would be terrible if some of the donations were lost due to spineless corporate bullshit.

Edit: Oh shit. Did it already happen? I am getting this message when sending money to hello@voat.co from my existing PayPal balance (not bank/credit):

We can't send your payments right now. If the problem continues please contact Customer Support.

I love my OUYA. Have Nostalgia with 10 emulators and around 40 native games. I've bought plenty of releases on the little box since I don't own any other consoles.

Interesting Guide to W3 Total cache + Cloudflare - x-post from /v/webhosting submitted by newbieatthegym to WordPress

Beware if you have any significant amount of readers from China or Southeast Asia.

CloudFlare's routing for users coming from those IP ranges is terrible, and it often forces you to servers in North America when its Singapore, Hong Kong or Japan servers would be much faster.

We ended up having to drop CloudFlare because, although it made the Google numbers really big, it utterly destroyed usability for the overwhelming majority of our readers. Page load times in China swelled from 4-10 seconds for a graphic-heavy page to nearly a minute with CloudFlare.

No. Some Chinese CDNs, but they are really only good for domestic traffic. We're actually still trying to come up with a good solution because there are other considerations too.

For example, the same article has to change which video it embeds depending on where the user is coming from.

A temporary solution has been offloading images to the slow CloudFlare option to at least minimize the number of open connections to the actual server. We keep things very tight, and even without a CDN we've been able to survive R****t front page hugs as long as the server itself is only taking care of the HTML+CSS+JS using one SPDY pipe.

I'll bookmark this post and update whenever I do come up with a better solution. I had been considering using the Nginx GeoIP module to seamlessly shunt people over to another site that would flip the image links to the CDN when accessing from outside China, but changing the video embeds still depends on being able to call PHP and generate the pages on the fly from the MariaDB.

Probably I will eventually have to write some kind of custom plugin system (or maybe a cron task that runs every 5 mins) to generate two separate SuperCache trees for in-China vs out-of-China visitors, then direct people accordingly using Nginx+GeoIP. It's just a big job and I am hoping to avoid it.
