People! Bugger off! (the site’s too busy)

People! Bugger off!

Well, I don’t mean you, dear blog reader, but it has to be said that this site is becoming a victim of its own success.

Right now, there’s 300 people on the bulletin boards and I can almost hear the server creaking and groaning from the strain – and it’s situated in Germany!

The irony is that the site’s non-profit, no-adverts philosophy continues to attract more people – and as the bandwidth soars every-skywards, it’s becoming more difficult to keep it free.

The site relies on the generosity of our web hosts, but I fear their kindness is becoming strained with each pleading email from me saying: “the site’s bombed again because of the traffic! can you help?!!”

Fingers crossed for the future….
