we're still having trouble with our servers. I think we need to upgrade them to handle the increasing trafffic. yesterday over 28,000 people visited the site!

Yes the UK users would be in full swing at that time
(me included!)

Also note that users online has over the last week or so roughly doubled from about 1000 to 1998 at this time of posting.

So I find it no surprise to read admins comment above.

Actually 6am EDT but EST5EDT is a time zone does not mean 5am. :)

Well they crashed out between 5:30-6am USA DST. used 5am as an about figure. Which would make it about 11am GMT which I think is what the UK is on. So on a weekday morning unless a holiday I would not think there would be that much traffick or DLing going on. Of course I could be perfectly mistaken and be happy to admit it.

So it's kinda a good/bad thing (good more traffic, bad need more servers.) Hey, what is the server set up ya got goin on now?
and DLing? haven't the torrent DL's moved to TorrentGuy? and aren't the video clips hosted by Stage6.Divx or YouTube?
I am so confused

Sounds right 2147 users on-line at present does not say how many guests.

Advertisements will help pay for a better server... but for the love of god, no talking iPods or Outdance the Stripper.

1) toh is right. it's the number of people on the site. even though we don't have any big files it still takes a lot with that many people. if we were actually hosting videos no way we'd be able to run on our current setup

2) I'm increasing the ads just a bit (max 2 per page). and anyone who donates $5 or more will not see any ads ever when they're logged in

3) right now I'm working on optimizing some of the code to increase the speed. then if still have trouble I'll upgrade the servers

There are still some people (me for one) who don't have a credit card. How about a postal order, and if thats ok where would we send it and who would we make it out to.

Second that
Ferengi do not deal in credit.
Hard cash (Latinum) or paper money if I have to!
BTW n8ph8ts please remember the sensitivities of the Ferengi hearing system and do not shout at this Ferengee.
But as you are my friend I will assume you left the caps lock on by mistake.
