Rivet New Server

I just ordered a new server and more RAM which should be going online in 2-3 weeks. I'll post more information on when we the new server will be put in place as soon as I get the new machine.

Hey, that's great Andy! It has become so crowded around here at times I can't log on. Then I start to get the shakes because I can't get my fix. Thanks for providing this "drug" that I am addicted to. We will toast you at the Nor Cal Rally!

Didn't we just get a new server a little bit ago Andy? Did we already outgrow it?

andy,

when did you start the home repair forum?

hopefully it can become as successful as this one! looks like you might need a few more members.

i think i'll apply for dual citizenship!

Rivet

We got a new server last year around this time. In August I purchased 2 more forum communities (fashion forums & royal forums) and I also started 3 more forums sites (travel forums, home repair forums & the ultimate forums).

The two forums I purchased get about 8x more traffic than this forum. So they added considerable overhead to the server.

If you are interested in helping me build the other communities, please join and send me a private message. I am still working on their category structre, look & feel, policies, member titles, etc... I am going to need moderators for those other sites also.

Based on a few PMs I got, if you would like to donate to the new server fund, you can make your donation using PayPal to andy@airstreamforums.com or PM if you want to send it via regular mail.

FYI - I really appreciate everyones support. My passion has become learning about and developing forum communities and understanding social interaction in a virtual environment. I just find it all so interesting!

Thumbs up Support Airstream Forums!

About a year ago Andy allowed contributions for a short while when he did the last upgrade. It's a Saturday morning and if you are starting your weekend here please consider a donation. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure how much value we can find here at a click of a mouse!

The only alternative is an old-fashioned 'barn raising' type effort -- we all show up in Big-D next weekend with our tools and help him with his Airstream!!

Thank you Andy!

Bob, maybe we could call that project Extreme Makeover Bambi Edition of Trading Airstreams? Too funny...

I really want to get some time to finish up my Bambi at some point. When I moved to Dallas from Colorado I moved into a highrise and have no place to work on her. But I will not sell her, at some point I'll have the $ and time to fix her up and hit the road. I sure am looking forward to that day!
