Also, yes, that was a quite a long downtime. But the place seems nice and speedy now, does it not?
My only successful site?
Admitedly no one really posts on servertalk but that is because a friend of mine gave it to host rather than just let it die. So that is 1 out of my 11 sites that is unsuccessful. How do you make a judgement on the others if you have not seen traffic logs/feedback?
Also I really
resent the fact that you have put this sites success down to the name. Why doesn't everyone think of a flashy name and hey presto you have a successfull forum
"Setup a server and put vb
That tells me you have no clue what so ever on how to run a web server. Sure installing vb
is not that hard, but have you ever looked into the other aspects? Security, DNS BIND, dns records, mail setup etc. There are alot more aspects to running a server than just simply throwing vb
at it unless you have a shared host ofcourse
If I had no clue how to setup vb
why is it installed here? Why has it been update in the past? What is the point of installing 126.96.36.199.1.1. update every day they are released just to cause downtime and fix all the bugs for the next two months.
Sure this skin is stock. So what? Its quick and smooth and everyone here likes it so thats the way it stays.
Sure I only spend a hour or two a day after work on here, what is the point in spending anymore and adding pointless changes when all you are as thankful as that. Probably got the ads block too so I have to continue paying out of my own pocket each month.
