Creating Terms and Conditions

A member is looking for some advice when it comes to the terms and conditions he uses on his website. He wants to ensure that the servers he sells are not used for illegal content. So which laws should he use? The USA, the country he's doing business from, or does that not matter so much as long as he's making it clear that the servers he provides must not be used for illegal purposes? Well-established hosts have comprehensive terms of service and acceptable use policies, developed over the years as different situations arise, so does he need to reinvent the wheel? How did you go about putting your legal agreements together?

July 2021 Server Parts Pricing Report

After a brief pause, Gabe has produced his sixth server parts pricing report for 2021. He tracks changing parts prices for RAM, SSDs, Hard Drives, CPUs, and a couple of GPUs. Typically this is done monthly, and then shared with WHT in a monthly report. Currently, all listed prices are from eBay, for used hardware, but he may start tracking more new hardware as well if there is a demand for it. Prices as of July 10th 2021. The "noteworthy changes" comments at the end of the report are worth a read, noting how pricing is changing due to a decline in Crypto-mining activity.
