Default New members/server?

Just wondering, but it seems were getting new members right, and left. Dont get me wrong, thats good, but how many can our servers hold. And is there any way that gettin these new members could take up so much space, that would have to give up our priveate message space back to 15.

I don't think it's something you have to worry about...

think about it. each private message can be 10000chars long..

that 80,000 bytes...
0.07 MB

there are 3.05 MB in the private message inbox, (assuming that each message has the maximum amount of charectors...

so, if disc space gets a little tight because of member accounts, I'll happily donate the £50 to buy a new 80GB hard disk which will allow 26843.5456 new members, each with 40 10,000 cherector messages in their inbox...

if you're really worried about disc space... then think about what you are writting
however, if those people see the adverts, (and assuming each view is worth 0.5p0 the site has already generated £134...

so the discs can be bought and i don't need to donate anything...

oh well...

even though it's still the morning,,, I can't be bothered to work... it's nearly christmas, and I'm going home...

I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
