It's a different challenge, but challenge nevertheless.
We are 33 at Big-boards and running on 3 servers. I could shut down one of the web servers and it would run fine, I'm thinking about retasking it. The DB server is hooked up to a piece of an EMC SAN unit though...

Slightly OT - the Big-boards admin is MIA, isn't he? As far as I know, new sites haven't been added to that index in a long time, so those rankings aren't accurate. My site's at just under a million posts now, and I've been in the "queue" on there for months with no response.

My database server was disk bound, it had 4 15k SAS drives in a RAID 10. I was going to install 2 drives mirrored for the operating system and then 6 drives in a Raid 10.
My host offered a 128 Gig segment on their SAN for about the same monthly payment.

Hm, that quip wasn't there when I initially submitted my site. Good for him I guess for capitalizing on his laziness.

You can consider it a big board if you stay up half-to-all night dealing with issues, get 100's of emails a day asking for name changes, email changes, complaints about this, that, etc.. Basically, when your life revolves around your forum/s.. lol aka Big-PITA.. You are there..

We forbid name changes unless it's a safety issue! Too much to handle

We do as well, but considering what my forum deals with, they end up having justifiable excuses more often than not.. Of course, we keep a log of these changes so staff can keep up, especially if there have ever been any problems with the member.
