The Sky Temple has Moved to a New Server

Great news everyone, as most of the regulars are probably aware, we have recently found it difficult to cover the cost of hosting the last couple of years. We have used a high-end dedicated server since we rebuilt the site in 2015, this cost us around $20 a month. Very generously, much of the community chipped in to help pay for this every quarter. One member in particular has been extremely generous in covering the entire cost some months, you may know him as drfsupercenter.
I'd like to thank everyone for their contributions over time, especially drfsupercenter for the sheer amount that he put in for us and for configuring our server from the get go. It may not have been possible to keep the site running efficiently without him and everyone else.
Having to rely on the community to fund us was not a very sustainable way to keep the site alive, so a decision was made to outright buy ourselves a dedicated server and run it instead!
We have already migrated the entire site over to it and everything seems to have gone smoothly! Thanks to Lighty The Sky Temple is now running on a lovely Raspberry Pi machine that is 100% solar powered! I'm proud to say that The Sky Temple has gone green :> Green power means more birds in the world which is exactly what our site is all about!!
Please let us know if you find any performance issues or bugs. In the meantime I do hope you enjoy your time, thanks for reading :>
