Monthly meetup to keep servers updated

PB Pirate Bady Public Seen by 76

@sahilister suggested the idea of meeting at least once in a month to keep the FSCI servers updated. Due to lack of volunteers as well as funding, there were discussions about shutting down some services. Crowdfunding campaign is going on, but that's not enough as we need more volunteers as well. A monthly meeting, which is open to all, seems to be a good idea to begin with to get more volunteers.

Let's meet every first Sunday of the month from 9pm-11pm

Second Saturday got the 2nd highest vote, so for tasks that need more time and care, we can also meet on Second Saturdays so that as @sahilister said we'll get Sunday to fix things if something goes wrong.

Let's meet once in a month at a fixed day and time to keep the FSCI servers updated. You can choose multiple options, select at least a day and time. You can also add other options to the poll apart from the existing ones.

Night between 7pm to 11pm
Second Saturday of the month

I'm vouching for a Saturday, so if things go bad we have the night to fix stuff up.

Is there a thread about the services' technicalities?

How much performance improvement would make a difference in hosting costs? Kernel Mode Linux and such minimal-change approaches seem promising.
