Hope to move AO to a new server soon
As you all know Phil has been out for awhile, I have been trying to take over everything on the server side of things. I have left AO alone, on the server he was using. Bad thing is it has a few issues (ever notice the archive does not do anything?) that means the sites not being indexed by the SE's. I also notice in the the logs the site is getting more active. up about 400 more visits a day from this time last month. At this point the site will be hitting overages in about a month. its time to move the site. I have just the server waiting for some action, it will have 400+ gb space (no worries about the gallery) and plenty of power to keep the site fast. Bad thing is, its a windows 2k3 server, so the Hivemail will not function / the free email accounts will have issues. I have NO clue how many people are actually using this feature. I guess I should post a front page anouncement asking, so I can get an idea. I can manualy setup a few emails for the people that are acutally using it, but the automatic setup we have now, will have to go. I plan on getting a few linux servers up within a few months, maybe at that time we can offer it again. let me know what you guys think. I know AO is still in the rebuild stage, and the last thing we want is for people to drift away.
I will start working on the to-do list pretty soon. I will keep everyone posted.
