I don't think there is any way around a dedicated server for a site this big. Will cost you about 5x as much though. I had already assumed you were on a dedicated server.

Well, at the last hosting site, it practically was dedicated since the other sites on the server didn't get much traffic at all, but we were loading it down pretty hard. We'll see if a shared server can work, and if not, we'll move up to a dedicated one.

I thought there is a dedicated server too.

I'm not a computer guy though. It seems like computer hardware prices are going down, and specs are going up.

To you techies out there. How much would a sufficient dedicated server cost. I'm just guessing $1000-1500. Is that about right?

For all the time I spend on this site, and enjoyment I get, I would be willing to contribute toward an SF server.

I'm thinking 100 people at $10 each would be $1000. Is that feasible? 100 people contributing $10, and buying a server for $1000. Could you see that happening?

What do you think?

I'm in... but I want a t-shirt out of the deal.

You can have one of my old undershirts that I'm about to give away to Goodwill.

Sorry.

I'd chip in $10 too. Though I'd naturally expect this place to be called "StyleForum, as hosted on the DocHolliday Memorial Server, paid for in part by a generous donation from Dr. John H. Holliday, DDS."

You actually have a doctorate?
post #369 of 9842
I think DDS is a denturate.

I'm in for 10 bucks on a semi-regular basis if that helps at all.

The powers that be don't like the mouse-over to read the beginning of the thread feature? I liked that one.

The server-that-is was getting overloaded, so I turned that off for now. It adds a lot of queries to each forum/search view.

Ah, gotcha, makes sense. Keep up the good work!

Charley has been timed out for a week.

When a moderator tells you to not troll in the Current Events forum, of all places, you know that you have really crossed the line. Next time you want to be timed out, you don't need to post a new thread mocking the moderator's instructions. You can just PM me requesting a timeout, and I'd be happy to oblige.

Fok.
