Well. The hosting is a dedicated server which i switched to in 2006.
Before that there was quite a lot of trouble with CSDb running slow and making to much load etc., and I got angry mails from the hosting company from time to time.

Such a hosting costs, but there has been almost no downtime since, and I can do whatever I want on the server. No restrictions, and I like it like that. :)
Also I got the hosting through a local company I used to work for, and therefor know them and got a good price I think, but it still costs a bit.

(We are digressing from the entry that started this thread, but who cares?)

Does the donation thermometer on the main page reflect the real status of finance?
Do you really run CSDb from those donations alone?

Or am I asking delicate questions now? ;-)

Well - havn't checked prices lately, but I have heard of people having cheap hostings and also heard what problems they sometimes run into.. :)

And yes, the meter should be correct. However some numbers is a bit behind, so sometimes the meter jumps when I get the real numbers.
The funding comes from the ads and the donations people make. (Thanks btw. ;) )
The ads usually pays for 40-65% of the hosting. Donations for the rest.

Ah so, once you are done with marking all the 'dirty' ones, ppl would be able to see, them just without ads? That's not oo bad :D

Any idea when this might happen?

And what the f**k - you all got accounts - no need to paste these obviously _NSFW_ entries to your colleagues anyhow.
