    I will be moving tFS to a new server this weekend. Plan for the site to be down for the whole weekend (I don't think it will take nearly that long). Hopefully I am getting good a this kind of stuff and I can reduce the downtime so many of you will not even notice (still, plan on the site being down the whole weekend just in case).

    I saved for 3 months to buy this new server. I spared no expense in any of the parts and hope that it will be able to handle our growth over the next year. I am hoping that it will last for about 18 months before we once again need another server.

    Andy thank you for all you do to make tFS the site it is. I have no idea how much it cost to run a site like this but I want you to know how much I appreciate all your effort and exspense you put into it.

    I'll be one of them. :P

    Techditz that I am, only have a vague idea of what a server is, something to do with storage for the huge amount of data on this site I reckon? but whatever you bought sounds great, thanks so much for getting TFS all decked out with a big new server. :flower:

    just want to say thanks as well....i only recently really looked at how many ppl are surfing this site at any given time...over a thousand people online is crazy. i run a small website so i know how it is making sure you have enough bandwidth ect..i cant imagine managing a site thats as busy as this one. hope the new server lasts a while :smile: :flower:
