Restoring the old forum and the Chewiki

Obviously, we just had our first major crash.

No, it was not Pimps hacking the forum or the database or anything like that. It was a major technical problem which had a relatively simple solution.

It was not without loss however. The Chewiki had to be forcibly pulled down to rescue the rest of the site.

Allow me to spare you the specific techno-babble of the incident and just say that the Chewiki was a heavy burden on the server's disk space. This is actually most likely what collapsed Conrad's old server as well. That and a combination of how shit the old forum software was (and it was more shit than the sewers of New York City).

The solution to this is really quite simply, though: upgrade the server hardware.

I would go and install another hard drive on the server myself, but I'd have to break into Ubiquity's facility to do that. Instead I'm going to ask for something that's I've been asking for a while now:

Donations.

It's going to cost us quite a bit to get a better hard drive.

In the meantime, I will continue to work my ass off for you guys and make sure this thing runs all right.

You can post your questions, comments, praise, and flames here.

    Hm. It seems that I was misinformed and we cannot merely upgrade to component that needs improvement.

    Crap...

    This means that we'll need donations to curb a higher monthly cost instead of just a one-time upgrade like I wanted. TINS, Dop, and I aren't rich, and if you guys want more stuff on the site (and I would rather like to put more stuff on this site), it sadly comes down to money.

    Looks like it'll be around $25 a month higher than what we're paying now. That may not seem too bad until you realize that the staff doesn't have a ton of money, for obvious reasons.

    I should add that unless we get this upgrade, there is absolutely no chance that the Chewiki will ever be put up again, nor will the old forum ever get a chance to be archived on this server. We also won't be able to put any other cool additions to the site that we might think of.

    I spent it all on ale and whores.

    No, actually, we do still have some left over from the last time bout of donations, for which I am extremely grateful, however whatever is leftover from last time isn't enough to cover this coming month's server bill, and that will mean that TINS and I will of course have to kick in a bunch of money.

    We simply can't afford to pay even more than we already allotted for the bills.

    I'm not begging for donations here, I'm just letting you guys know that if you want this, someone is going to have to kick some cash our way, unless one of the staff gets a kickass job somewhere somehow.

    This is mostly about the Chewiki, right?

    Because in my humble opinion, it can go. I've never used it.
