A new story entry has been added:

SaturnFans.com Back Online After Record Traffic Crashes Server (Again)

Quote:
For the second time this month, SaturnFans.com has been knocked offline due to the surge of Saturn owners and enthusiasts flocking to the Web to read more about GM's decision to shutdown the Saturn brand. This time damage was much more extensive. While the primary site database has been reconstructed, there is still some work that needs to be done.

daaaaaaaaamn.. and here I thought you pulled the plug on the site man

glad to hear things are working right (once again) due to our overpopularity. Charlie, have you ever considered getting a better:

1) internet connection
2) server
and/or 3) board software

in order to help handle our increasing popularity?


thanks for your hard work as always.

After a few more months the massive spikes in traffic should die down by a significant amount, so I doubt Charlie putting in more personal funds for bandwidth or hardware/software is really warranted.

Thanks for getting the boards and site back up Charlie.

Not sure of either the workload or economics needed to keep a site like this working - but the fact it does work, contains quality information, and links passionate owners makes it... priceless.

This site rocks! It's just too bad there isn't a similar site for my Ranger and my bro's Mustang.
