Additional Server To Help With Load

First, I want to thank those who have been patient with us during the last month and the server busy messages. Please be advised its not due to excessive server load, but rather an occasional spike when thread views are updated (I've written code to reduce/eliminate this but it will take a few days to "tune" it properly).

Ford Truck Enthusiasts' third server arrived via UPS this morning and I'll be installing Linux on it and testing it over the next week or so. In about 2-3 weeks it will go into production. It will effectively double (at least) FTE's processing capacity and will hold us for quite some time.

Ken feels that FTE is Not about Charity and will not feel comfortable ask for donations.

The best way for users to show their appreciation toward FTE is to Join ClubFTE or Purchase merchandise from Motorhaven.com.

The t-shirts are of high quality with Multi-coloured design.
A real honestly *true value*

Just browse throguh the FTE clothing or FTE merchandising area.

Ken is a pretty generous guy.

I doubt you would get away without receiving something, if you were to do that.

We'll be adding things like mugs again in the future.

Additional Club FTE cards went out today, some of you may end up with two of them.

How about getting those big thermo mugs like the ones sold at gas stations? I supose I might be one of the few interested in a 32 or 44 ounce cup.
