The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses.

Fire Engine Photos
In a old warehouse in Rijswijk (The Netherlands), this huge fire broke out. Several fire engines were on the scene to tackle this blaze. Here you see one of the water tenders of the Rijswijk Fire Brigade. It's a Magirus Deutz 170D12 F Water tender.
After hours this fire was under control.
