    Well, we are on a new duel PIII server and it seems pretty fast but we haven't hit peak time yet, what do you think so far? Also we will be adding a little more RAM memory toward the end of the week so it will get a tad faster still, just need to keep an eye on it now to see if we need even more memory or not.
    I also plan on upgrading the forum software once this is all sorted out, a few new features that I'm sure you will like. So go to the merchandise page and buy buy buy and sign up for a membership if you haven't already that's whats going to pay for this. [​IMG]

    Cool. Hopefully this means I didn't just get lucky on being able to get on the site. Now I can actually ask questions and be able to get back on to find the answers. Nice job. As for membership... hopefully after tax season. If it doesn't drain me dry.[​IMG]

  10. Works good so far. I have had a couple of interuptions in the last few days, but I attribute that to working all the bugs out.

    Cool, looks like it is slowing just a tad with around 70 total users but no errors, will be adding a little more memory this week so that will help out as well.

    Over the past several days, I haven't been able to get in. As a matter of fact, the kids and g/f have been commenting how I have been giving them more attention recently! Go figure! I was starting to get cranky, though. Damn withdrawals! I even considered looking for another site! But, that thought was quickly washed away with another kahlua.

    It seems good to me so far today. I don't mind speed issues until you get the memory in as long as I can actually get connected.

    Thanks!
