FlockHosting Blog

The FlockUpdate-ish.

Greetings FlockHosters!

This 2019 has been a crazy one so let’s go with the things going on which are good before we get to the singular big bad thing.

  • Nginx + Upgrades – We have some minor performance issues on the current build-out of the server stack, cPanel does a good job, but we’ve had a number of attacks which have brought servers to their knees. So more adjustments are going in, but Nginx is improving overall load times and load time scores so all servers should have these updates completed in the next few weeks.
  • Website Design – Coming soon still, this was pushed back a little, but I wanted to let folks know if you are looking for a design for your site, it’s coming soon, BUT you can email me directly if you are looking for a rough quote on the work you desire to be done.
  • Custom Projects – Now this is one that’s going to soon be an option on the site but many have asked how to get information on a custom quote/project pricing, and the easiest way I’ve done this lately is the contact form, just leave some details and we can work out the plan – Already have helped a local Christian Station online with not only hosting, but now serving their online station radio! So I can meet most needs!

So that’s good! Sadly there is some bad, and I’m going to keep it brief and get straight to the point. 2 weeks ago after months in discomfort with back pain and really just feeling poorly I’ve been diagnosed with Esophagus Cancer – Stage 3. To better let me explain vs. many paragraphs here’s a 30-minute update from Me on Me.

What can I do?! I mention in the post the key thing I desire? Prayer. I don’t mind if you feel led to do more, giving you can do through the crowdfund site every little bit helps, I appreciate emails & letters all of that can be found on the communicate page – also the scheduling forgot to mention that some windows are closed off for treatments – but please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via email, shoot a text, follow my private accounts on social+blog (IG, FB, TW, Blog)

Those of you have already given thank you so much for being amazing! Those of you who are saying “I want to, but ______” stop right there, bow your head and I say thank you! Giving something is not required at all, my mantra in all of this!

I’ll be checking in on social media now and again and hopefully in 6 weeks we’ll here is all gone, and that God, not me is victorious God is good and I hope you all had an amazing Easter and have an amazing week!
