Quick question, how reliable is their support?

And how much traffic does this site generate? How big is it?

I know of a host that can provide very good service, downtime for them is measured in minutes, not days. Worst downtime I've seen them have is for 5 hours and that was a pretty bad problem they had.

I ask about bandwidth and size because they are more of a community based server and they usually prefer smaller sites that don't mind sharing a server with other accounts. You can visit them at www.futurequest.net.

The only reason I say this is because 7 days of downtime is excessive. And judging by what was mentioned, those guys at your older provider have the combined IQ of an earthworm, if an Earthworm even had IQ. If the site requires its own dedicated server, then yeah, I will understand. In fact, Futurequest will TELL you that they think you should go get a dedicated server......

Just my 0.02 cents. I just think this downtime is excessive as well as unacceptable (not to you but to those sub-amoeba guys at your old host).

Thanks for the suggestion, but yeah, we require a dedicated server. We outgrew shared hosting awhile ago, and the site is still growing quite fast.

7 days of downtime had nothing to do with their network really, it was down for 7 days because the old server was toast, and we migrated. Technically there was nothing wrong with old server or the connection, just the idiots handling the hardware. I don't have those concerns at theplanet, they've already proven they can take care of business, quickly and effeciently. Previous to that, their downtime was minutes at a time, if that. But I can't really trust the guys with the keys, so I decided to go elsewhere...

We push around 200GB per month, 3-4 million clicks. Grows a few % per month, though.

Finally Miles, now you can get your ass out of the house and over to Joe Rockheads. Can we get back to our climbing already?

Uh oh... perhaps you didn't notice this but you are fueling everyone's inner compulsive gambler. ASC has combined 2 expensive and addictive elements into the ultimate vice: gambling for airsoft.

I'll get some chairs in a circle, put on some coffee, and register the support group; I'll need to get a head start on this epidemic.

The only trauma I suffered was not having anything to do at school when I had finished looking at everything on ebaumsworld and wimp.com.

I was actually on ASC seconds before it went down. I was harboring a guilt all this time that I was to blame. You know...last person to see it alive = most probable suspect.

Me and Sadiztix thought Big Brother finally came down on ASC and we were taking bets on who would be the bitch...you or Tru...

Glad to see we're back, though.
