Who hosts osdev.org? Who pays the hosting costs? The wiki (and forums) contains a wealth of information, are there backups in place?

I'd like to thank Chase (and the moderators who help maintain it) for the hard work and free resources provided to the community. I think that sometimes we take it for granted.

Great job guys.

You're welcome! There are backups :) I've got mysqldump and all the important config files zipping up and copying to a NAS drive at my house. I really should rebuild things in a docker container at some point.

Edit: And the wiki dump is always as http://files.osdev.org/osdev_wiki.zip

Yeah it's a great community, thanks for maintaining it Chase. The reason I started this thread was partly curiosity, partly interest in seeing if I could get my company to support the site in some way, maybe off-site backups or something like that. It sounds like you've got a handle on things :)
