This was my contribution to fixing the problem:
Fok: "Um, people are telling me it's getting slow. Er... the forum."
j. : "Fuck, something something technical - something about loads, the wiki, etc... The forum is broken."
Fok: "Hmmmm (thinking). Maybe we should just go to a faster server. Totally worth it."
j. : "Yeah, I'll probably get more RAM. We have X amount right now."
Fok: "Yeah. We should get, like dual quad cores. Does that give us, like, an automatic 8 Gigs?"
j : "That is the processor speed, not the RAM."
Fok: "Oh? Yeah, I guess I knew that. Um, more RAM then. My machine here has 4 Gigs, that's what they told me."
j: "Yah, sure. Um, can I fix the forum now, please?"
Sort of a Dilbert-esque scenario, and I'm not sure that I come off as the smart guy.
