Thanks & congrats to Kindred & Suki! What an excellent team here.
Two years ago, my favorite hobby website was shut down by its host provider due to CPU usage. Despite having little appropriate background, I volunteered to try to help. They were under siege by aggressive crawlers, had security issues, had DB issues, had codebase issues caused by mod installation/de-installation issues and were thus stuck on very old versions of mods & SMF.
With the SMF team's help - and also the help of brave SMF users sharing their lessons - all this has been addressed. Though traffic is up dramatically, CPU is consistently low & the error logs are squeaky clean.
Sorry for hijacking this thread, but it felt like the best place to say thanks and congrats to you all for such a fine product!
