    Quite, although one has to consider costs. Nevertheless, I expect d is very wealthy for student standards. The sites aren't hosted on the same machine. There isn't a huge incentive to spend his profits from his money-making site on something like UKL, which probably loses money (although is good publicity for his other sites).
    Yeah but hes got 18,000 members... thats a vast student population which is worth a fortune, and just look at the UKL post count

    I suspect UKL generates more traffic than you think... maybe its just d's exploiting it in a very subconcious, hidden way

    Either vBulletin is badly designed or mySQL is a marvel of technology. No way do you want 1000 or more concurrent connections. They cause too much overhead. Even on commercial servers I've seen in industry (way beyond any of these essentially PC-based servers) that many connections would be unthinkable.

    Simple connection pooling would reduce the server load no end, I guarantee that.
    ooops i think possibly i meant concurrent users rather than connections

    I have already donated £5 for being a subscriber and will donate a bit more after nursing my bank balance back to health after the ball. I think it would be nice if d posted a bit in the subscribers forum just to let us know how much he appreciates it - either that or he is too drunk from his newfound wealth...

    I might take a bit from the load of the server and mirror the Subscribers forum on my server

    Either d has set the server load limit too low or the server is just not quite up to the job.

    VB and mySQl are solid

    Again, as with the subscriptions, the issue is payment method, as i haven't been able to get access to a credit card or anything yet.
    Damn apathy!
