I would like to say my thanks as well, my site hasn't really been  too fast lately (since we're really limited on cash and have to make compromises with limited resources :P ) and still SMF seemed even slower lately - but after this change - I want a new server too!  :P

As do I. My server just... well... SUCKS! :)

Shared hosting by HostMonster.

Downtime has been @5-10% this month. It's getting ridiculous.

Lol, change it, to something like what this site has...XD

Wow, these guys can afford this software....just look at all the members in the charter area....about 500 ... now times that by 50.

$25,000 right there!  Plus all of the donations...insanity!  Imagine, if they started charging for each download!

Luckily, the only thing about SMF we will ever have to pay for is the CM :) And that's optional :P

Good! Imagine all these members having to pay each 50 bucks.

They'd make millions...but then again...who would pay 50 buck just to sign up ^^.

For a site like this, that money would literally flow down the drain.

The community database here is nearing 3GB

We own all of our own hardware (aside from the mirror servers, which were donated) and colocate it in a datacenter in Atlanta, Georgia.

If i remember right, we currently have two webservers, one devel/email server, and two database servers (one master, one slave for replication/backup (this server was the one we used to replace the db server with the fried power supply)).  I believe the old db2 server will be made a webserver, but dschwab9 can probably clarify on that :P

Needless to say, dschwab9's been working hard on getting us set up for redundancy.  Particularly with how the loss of our db server occured, the fact that we had a spare available saved us hours (and possibly days) of downtime.  Put simply, we'd have been having a harder time than we were ;)

I think that answers all the appropriate questions :P

Lastly, we're not about to start charging for SMF or to register here... so none of that, now :p

Great work Dschwab, it must be tiring to maintain a site this big. Keep up the great work.
