Upgrade

While the LG server no longer gets locked up at 300 users on at once like the old one, it does get a flaky when we hit around 800+. Last night we set a record with 1,477 users on at once. Whenever there's a huge moment, you know it because of the tell tale phpBB: Critical Error that comes up.

We need to upgrade our server's RAM. This isn't cheap. The more we can raise, the better. There will also be some costs for installing and optimizing the site afterward. It's been a few years since we've had a fundraising drive. In fact, we did it when Pau was traded here. Seems more than appropriate to do it once again.

LG stepped up then with I think around $4K. If you're annoyed, angry and irked with the errors, now is the time to step up. Or if you just love LG and want to make it better, let's fix this.




You can donate any amount here:

Thank you in advance.

I think if every member can donate 10$, you can raise about 5-10k very quickly.

DB, can you share any info on the current server specs? I work in Infrastructure IT and can potentially rustle up some hardware or get you guys in touch with some cheap resellers.

Really depends on how much we want to upgrade. We probably need at least $1K. Double or triple that would be better.

I appreciate all the effort you guys put into making this site work so well. It's our duty to help out.

$100.00

This feels like a Chabad Telethon. I'm just waiting for Jon Voight to make an appearance.

What if David Stern vetoes the server upgrade? Will we get our donations back? Or are we SOL?

Sounds good, let me know. If I can't donate any hardware to help, I'll for sure donate some money.

Donation lobbed and not just because of server crashes. DB game updates and 'cool story bro' alone are worth some scratch.

Championships.
