We should work out the actual peak server demand, double it, reduce the post/pm/search timers to 10 second and then just pay for that tier for as long as we can based on this round of funding.

Speaking of which, I just learned that Bluehost does not have an automated process to downgrade from a dedicated package to VPS. So hopefully we can hit that $2400 mark or there's going to be a disruption in service and possibly some ugly hiccups. Argh! What a pain in the ass.

Edit: My mistake, even downgrading to a less expensive dedicated plan requires a server backup and restoration. Total load of horse crap.

So what would actually be the most ideal way to go about this in terms of tiers, Jeremy? Would it make more sense to try to keep things as is in terms of headache for you? Because I think all of us want this to be as little of a pain in the ass as possible.

I think the best thing to do would be for me to purchase the new plan a few days ahead of the current period expiring. That way I will have time to upload everything to the new server with a bit of a safety net; if I encounter any troubles, I can call for help. The expiration is 8/8, so that gives us a weekend to sort out the transition.

FYI, for anyone who may still be planning to donate, just a quick reminder that this closes in less than a day.

Please contribute, if you use the forums! If we can raise $313 to hit the next tier, I'll soak up the tax differences myself and push us to the dedicated server level, which I think would be worth the investment.

Thank you for your generosity, Parish. You didn't have to do this but it's very much appreciated. Having this community around means a lot to me.

Rad, we hit the $1800 goal and then some. Things may be a little dicey this weekend since there'll be a server move, but after that it should be smooth sailing.

Thanks, everyone! As the poet said, "My heart will go on." And by heart I mean Talking Time.
