    Re: Be the last person to post on this thread XI

    Roy and RFS62, Ochra and anyone else, I talked with GIK and have offered to help them try and set up a study to find the usage problems, I also think we can help get a mission statement together and a better payment setup that frees the principals from being the only ones involved.

    What we need is the business acumen of the folks on this board and I'm hoping that you guys can lend a hand.

    Gotta run to the airport (parents need a ride) I suggest we touch on this when I return.

    I'm in for whatever you need.

    Within reason.

    If I have time.

    As long as it doesn't cost anything.

    This makes me management material.

    I'm busier than a one-legged man in a butt kicking contest today, but whatever free time I have is yours.

    Thanks, guys. I appreciate all the help I can get. BTW, this is the email I received yesterday which prompted many of my actions:

    "This is an automated message notifying User reds that 81.2953% of his/her bandwidth and 14.555% of his/her allocated disk space has been used up.

    It is estimated, at the current rate of use, that the account bandwidth will be used up in 4.14 days, at which time the account will be suspended for the remainder of the month.

    The User should contact Support if this is an issue."

    And, just so you know, we are alloted 73.242GB per month and right now we're at 61.654GB.

    Kinda like being in an airplane running out of fuel, and we're ditching the baggage.

    Re: Be the last person to post on this thread XI

    Who is the host and which plan do we use?

    73 GB is fairly low for a shared server these days.

    Do they allow for people to "acquire" more bandwidth in these situations, or is upgrading the only immediate way to resolve this?

    Bah, no problem. I've been in on thse kinds of efforts before.

    The analogy that I've made is that we're on a 747 going from NYC to LA and we've got to swap out the engines in mid-flight.

    No problem. Gulp.

    Hey, I see you guys took down your avatars. Is that for bandwidth?

    Bluto: Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!
    Otter: Germans?
    Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.
    Bluto: And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough...
    [thinks hard]
    Bluto: the tough get goin'! Who's with me? Let's go!
    [runs out, alone; then returns]
    Bluto: What the [fudge] happened to the Delta I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? "Ooh, we're afraid to go with you Bluto, we might get in trouble." Well just kiss my [bum] from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Wormer, he's a dead man! Marmalard, dead! Niedermeyer...
    Otter: Dead! Bluto's right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We gotta take these [dopes]. Now we could do it with conventional weapons that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part.
    Bluto: We're just the guys to do it.
    D-Day: Let's do it.
    Bluto: LET'S DO IT!

    Don't know if this is the forum you want to do this in GIK, but I'll start here.

    So when you're saying bandwidth, are you talking about network traffic coming in and out of the site?

    Or is it CPU % of the server getting consumed?

    And it looks like we're OK for disk space for the time being?

    Just trying to arrow in on what the real problem is.

    It would be better if we could fly from LA to NYC.

    I'm going to begin taking some steps.

    First, I'm going to ditch my avatar.

    Second, I'm going to become a "lurker" for the rest of the day, only posting when I have something truly valuable to add.

    Can we make a stickied announcement for others to do the same, or do we want the testing to take place under "normal" board conditions?
