Volume 24 Issue 6 (November/December 2011) – Missionaries to Cyberspace Newsletter

"When you see the DOG go to GOD in prayer for the Hoffman Family – missionaries to Cyberspace." November/December 2011 Volume 24 Issue 6 Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! The Latest News: The tent making job has slowed down. Over the last week I have been moving our core ministry websites off the Virtual Private Server, onto smaller managed server accounts. It should cut costs by about 20% on the VPS, allow better management and backups and do away with a single point of failure. Church Website Ministry:  I spent most of my last week "off" moving the core ministry websites (including this one) off the Virtual Private Server and onto a bunch of several smaller managed hosting accounts. The fact they are managed, and automatically backed up, and the diversity that comes from them being on multiple servers should help the workload and security factors. Additionally, I have been trying to cut back on unneeded extraneous features to help cut down the expenses.

Vacation Time (No rest for the weary)

I spent most of my last week "off" moving the core ministry websites (including this one) off the Virtual Private Server and onto a bunch of several smaller managed hosting accounts. The fact they are managed, and automatically backed up, and the diversity that comes from them being on multiple servers should help the workload and security factors. Additionally, I have been trying to cut back on uneeded extraneous features to help cut down the expenses. I spent time working on some bugs in the web site of Evangelist Russell Kidman (evangelistrussellkidman.com). I think we have most of the bugs worked out. Lastly, I updated my cell phone to an Android Bionic. This will make it easier to keep on top of the ministry needs at times when I can't set up my laptop. Additional features on the phone will also aid in keeping safe when I am driving for...
