Amen, especially since the posted rules on the signature page are not enforced at all.

I wish he'd just give us a number, whatever it is - $600, even $1200, whatever it costs to upgrade the server .. and then we could try to raise the money with a fundraiser.

Or better yet let's ask broncosteven ... he had some involvemnt in hooking us up with a server before, so maybe he has some answers.
Sadly I can't add anything other than speculation, this is TJ's baby. I think it could be more of an ISP issue.

When I did talk to him a year ago he said the DB was small and the site was more of a memory and Bandwidth hog.

I am guessing he may be near the point where he may need to add multiple servers in a round robin DNS config to balance use at peak times to host all the features of the app. I have never hosted a public site like this, not sure if the App he is using would allow the DB to be distributed to other sites.

Based on the user locations displayed in the posts. I would consider placing a Server in a Denver ISP, CA ISP, and an east coast ISP with all 3 pointing to a central/clustered DB somewhere.

That is a big time outlay and A TON of work. He would need a couple guys to run this type of setup. Not sure he wants to go that big or worth the effort to him now that his family is growing.

The Photobucket option could help with this as it means that the pictures are not only STORED at photobucket but they are also DOWNLOADED from there too. At least I think that's how photobucket works.

You have to say, however, that even an 'easy' option like this would take time to sort out - you'd have to restrict avatars so that they can ONLY be posted on Photobucket or similar, otherwise it wouldn't work.

So if TJ's just expanded his family I'm not surprised he gives these kinds of threads a wide berth.....even the 'simple' stuff ends up taking more time and effort than you thought it would.

I prefer imageshack. As I understand it works the same but I believe the bandwidth is higher. Anyway I don't see why that option shouldn't work.

Sigs are just as cool. Check mine out.

Anyway I have a 4 month old and know how it is. Sounds like TJ is also busy on the soap box for some Ron Paul dude.

Kids/family + Work = Little free time.

The problem right now is that I'm the project manager for a massive web site, and am at the end of the development cycle trying to get this thing out the door. I'm working 15 hour days right now trying to get this thing wrapped up. Once this project winds down, I plan on spending time updating the board software and revisiting our bandwidth needs and our ability to deliver everything we want to deliver without slowing the site down. But I'm not in position right now to do anything but sympathize and wish that I had the same kind of energy I had at 27 when I could work 18 hour days and actually enjoy it (I'm beat right now!).

18 hour days. You sissy! Back in my day when I was 27 we worked 34 hour days. Damn kids these days and their 24 hour long days.

Take care of yourself and your family. We can wait as long as needed. Lets just hope we don't lose anybody else from here. Pez just said sionara.

Not sure if it is worth bothering now that everyone around here is on the rag.

With the way people here get so pissy and offended so freaking easily I wouldn't waste time as they will just find something else to b**** about and end up leaving.
