MozillaZine

Forums Down

Friday December 14th, 2001

As you may have noticed, we've taken the forums down, as we are hitting our bandwidth limit with them. We're working on getting them up and running again as soon as possible.

In related news, we've added a link to our Cafe Press store where you can get cool MozillaZine appearal, which will help us keep ads off the site for good. Thanks for all your support.

UPDATE: Many people have requested some way of donating money to help us out, so we have setup a paypal account for you to do so. Simply go to paypal.com and use the email address jason@mozillazine.org to contribute. We thank you greatly for all the help, and thank the people who bought stuff at CafePress for the support as well.

Jason.

"Is the image server of cafepress.com down because of the heavy load generated from mozillazine users?"

I think you drastically over estimate the amount of mozillaZine users and load generated by them. The company I work for was featured in a Slashdot article - and linked to - a few weeks ago and our old P2 Linux box that hasn't been booted for just short of a year handled the load just fine. That was Slashdot front page. I doubt mozillaZine has even 1% of the amount of users Slashdot has so the impact of something like this should be absolutely minimal.
