If so, and if server costs are high, what can we do about this for people that can't won't support? From a technical standpoint is it possible to distribute traffic to this site among multiple machines? I know the images have been offloaded but what about other areas? If torrents can be distributed on a P2P basis with no central server why can't a bulletin board? Say someone has a DDNS address and wanted to share some storage/bandwidth. Can this be done?
"hear that correctly"
you mean "read" that correctly
I don't play that shit. You cut my dick off, you better run goddamnit.
No not all, we rent that server. It is in the same data center our live web server is on.
Well fuck man, I'm trying here. I have a 30Mbs connection that sits fairly idle most of the time with a bunch of raid storage just waiting to be used. I'd bet others have the same. If enough of us can figure out how to utilize it let me know. Have you checked out bittorent sync yet? Most awesome for offsite backups.
I see, we have bandwidth coming out the ass bro no worries on that. It's just the hardware and sheer amount of work the staff provides that I am complaining about. also you have to admit that 1% is shameful.
Is the 1% lurkers because in most posts I see a lot supporters replying. Not that I am one, but maybe have a fund raising to get you settled for the next 6 months. I think if you post a graph with a goal people would be more willing to donate. I'd rather contribute than sign up for a revolving amount each month.
Can you downgrade and remove videos and just post them as links instead and save bandwidth space.
