Been on a small buying spree today. Pretty small one but makes a whole bunch of difference later on. The network of sites needed a new name besides Adepca which later on will be used as a business website selling website related services.
The name Solitude came to mind which I like pretty much and then added Networks to the name and made SolitudeNetworks. Registered some of the abbrevations also to be sure mistakes get minimized when people enter the domains from human memory.
Solituden, SolitudeNetwork, SolitudeNet and SolitudeNetworks were purchased. Solitude.com as a neighbour is a premium domain that is on auction for 838,500USD which I couldn't find in my current wallets right now. Too sad. Some years ago I lost access to the mothership due to a drive crash with close to 1xxxxxx.2.... BTC - don't even remember how many were in there exactly. Most sad. Waste of time trying to recover the drive and data, I gave up long time ago. Truly a bad day when it happened, it's close to having a stroke (had an anxiety attack). Lost alot of valuable work related data on that drive. Feels like it might've been a vision back then though, I was really stressed out at that time and were hospitalized for a few weeks to recover, got back and even though I sometimes experience a short flashback it only makes me sad thinking about what could have been. Shit happens and is part of my life as well as the most beautiful moments with friends :)

Domains and network infos

Registered some other names aswell where my favorite name is maceofmirrors.com, Loke's staff / Thor's hammer or typo of mazeofmirrors.com, mazeormirrors.com and mazeandmirrors.com and is still freely availbable for under 10USD each at Namecheap. It may sound nice for an online game type. Awareness boosting games or a maze game. Still friends :)

To tell something about the traffic on my small porn network of sites - it's really stable. Had some high volume the last 10 days this month, but with time it has been steadily increasing in general, almost like high-risk shares. I've updated the screenshot showing "Top 30 Referrers" for June month. Please refresh your cache by clicking Ctrl+F5 for a complete refresh and to get the latest informations. I hope you enjoy the weather as much as I do even though having 35C+ degrees in here at my home office almost burns my last brain-cells with bad sectors ;)

Dedicated Server purchased

Finally got myself pulled together to purchase a Dedicated Server. I've had a few over the time and as time flies by they become cheaper.
I remember when hosting was the biggest bill when running websites. This seems history. It's probably still a big bill to pay for some - but with dropping prices future seems bright :-)
I choose an SP-32 Server - Intel Xeon E3-1270v6 - 32GB DDR4 ECC 2400 MHz - SoftRaid 2x2TB from OVH. It has a 1Gbps internet connection (500Mbps upload limit) and is attached to a 13Tbps network. It's located in London (UK).
It should be sufficient to run what I need. All necessary packages have been installed (libavcodec56, ffmpeg, gpac, flvtool2). I choose to have ISPconfig 3.0.5.4 (Debian 8) installed which makes it easier to manage all domains from one web interface.
