    I wasn't on then. Looks like this website is on a shared server (other websites also hosted on this same server).

    Re: Server too busy?

    The load on the sever is all from TFP. We routinely have 1200 people using the site at once, sometimes more than double that.

    Every year I triple the size of the machine we are running on. As it turned out, this year we are just squeaking by, right near the limit. Unfortunately, upgrading the sever is not something we want to get involved in mid-summer.

    Oh, wow. I guess you guys do have your own dedicated server. Did you start off on a shared server, then work your way up to dedicated?

    Long ago we started out on a shared server, but it didn't work for long and we rapidly switched over to a dedicated machine.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
