>> Certainly it's your call for the makerspace; as for VCF we still aren't 100% decided about using that product. Eric noted that it would take a bunch of customizing to meet our needs. Also for any organization, especially a growing one like VCF, it would be poor business practice to put our data on any individual's server or any account at all that is not fully under our control.
> Like a "cloud" server, for example.
I know it's your favorite pasttime to make fun of that idea, but -- yes.
By "control" I don't mean security. I meant we would want a business
account with accessible support staff, receipts for all expenses, and so
on. Clearly you, Martin, and any number of VCF members have the *
capability * to run a pro-grade server; I'm just saying it is poor form
to rely on individuals who have their own priorities vs. companies that
are paid to perform a given service. This is not an attack on anyone's
ability, experience, skills, or tech.
