The site may be down for a short period of time for any time the network admin plugs in the new servers or updates the bandwidth link. He usually goes about this when traffic is light (between 2am EDT and 6am EDT), which is bad for Australian users and other people on a similar timezone (or people who're doing all-nighters), but good for the majority. If there's going to be some intentional downtime for the site, it may as well be when the traffic's at its lightest.

Why not hook up with one of your own sponsors like tshirtsthatsuck.com and allposters.com?

And what about Grounds Platinum?

yea, you have a market for it, but the product just isnt doing it

"We are looking for a new Database server as Wade said, but it is really hard to find one that supports more than 12 gigs of ram."

You do realize that if you got a G5 from Apple you could have 16 Gigs of RAM (In theory the G5 can handle this) AND you'd have the fastest single box server pretty much on the planet.

And it'd be cheaper than a damned Xeon bitch server.

Just my 2 cents.

All of those upgrades are going to cost a lot of money! I was just wondering where you get all of your cash from? It can't be from the stickers. I personally think that you should make something more to sell. I had the idea of making Newgrounds CD labels. And maybe some variety in the Stickers, like Pico and some others. What do you think?

Hey Tom and Wade,

Can you get someone to wire two or more servers in paralell with each other? If you can do this, you could have one huge database machine made up of multiple segments that could be controlled as one huge machine from a single workstation. In this way you would have the combined RAM of all the machines together as one huge chunk instead of having a huge lone server. It would take some major networking, but it could be done with the right programs and hardware.

I must agree. Whoever told you that you must have one giant database server is full of shit.

While this may be true for mySQL database software(which I assume you're using) I seriously doubt that the commercial databases are restricted to a single machine. I can't imagine that all the Banks and Insurance companies (etc) are using a single machine to handle their databases.

Obviously, switching to commercial database software is going to cost money, but with you guys spending so much money on database servers everytime you get traffic spikes, It could prove to SAVE money.

On another note, While mySQL is VERY fast for small sites, with small databases, Commercial packages such as Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server are far better suited to large operations. LIKE NG.
