Rant

Crap

My server costs have risen nearly 50% in three months.

Some software and font purchases I was planning for the next version of Minx, which I'd put off because I needed the funds for moving house, have increased in price by 30%.  (Those ones are in Euros.)

Bleah. sad

1 I for one would be happy to pay for my hosting!  Not that it's a drop in the bucket next to server costs, but still.

2 Thanks Pam. wink

I bought one of the software packages today - it went up another $20 overnight. eek   It's a suite of graphing/charting/mapping modules in Flash.  By buying one developer license I can put it into Minx and all of mu.nu and mee.nu can use it.  It cost me €450 for the unlimited license, but the alternative is for each user who wanted to set up maps or graphs paying €85 themselves, so it makes a lot of sense for me to spend the money once.

Should show up in the next version of Minx. smile

3 One saving grace is that now that mee.nu is officially a business venture (we have a company, mee.nu pty ltd, and I'm a director), all my expenses are tax-deductible.  Saves me a small fortune!

4 Well, if you won’t let us contribute to expenses, how about putting up a wish list?

5 Shipping. sad

Online stores in Australia suck.  And international shipping on small items can be 2-3x the price of the item.
