Um how 'bout if instead we make a thread, we'll call it, say, "Record Breaking", we'll stick it in this forum, and it can contain the announcement and discussion about this event.

Just a suggestion . . . .

Sunday's are good, I usually nurse a hangover about then so it's fine with me. Wednesday's fine as well since I never do much during the week, it's too damn hot to go and do ne thing 4 the 3 hours of sunshine I get in freedom a day :)

I realise that Sunday is supposed to be the best day, but who can actually say "Its Sunday the nth"?

I should have realised the site would be of that ilk.

Unfortunately I dont think that HeMan is available at the moment.

I doubt there will be any objections, as so far only about six of us have shown up in this thread. We need some more agressive advertising.

As Micah said somewhere :

xcomufo.com's server sports unlimited bandwidth and the capability to serve several thousand users at once at a very nice speed with at least 99.9% uptime. Besides, if the forums ever start to slow down, I will simply upgrade the server :) The forums currently take around 133mb of space on the server, plus the 30mb database in the mysql system. It may sound like a lot (or not) but there is still plenty of room to grow. Also, since the upgrade to v1.2 RC 1, there have been no database errors, even with the increased traffic.


So I guess it won't be too much of a problem...
