Temporarily down .. be about 15 hours before it is back up.

Too many users! Well not too many, but not enough server power. So I have to upgrade the server to accommodate.

I have to update the entire server! Have to move the site to a new server. I'll have to time it just right so we have very little downtime.

More money = more power, bandwidth, etc.

I'll get us to where we need to be .. then you guys will break it again in another year or less lol .. but I'm not complaining .. I think it is great we are all so active on Hookah Pro!

Thanks everybody for making Hookah Pro .. Your Ultimate Source for Everything Hookah!

Cheers .. Sambooka

LOL! We broke the hell out of our current server! They had to reboot it we dragged it down to its knees!

I am in communications now trying to get chat temporarily back up, but off the main page.

so do you host your own server at your home location, and just buy the domain?

lol .. no way mang! I don't have the desire or the region for hosting at home. When I started HP we were on a custom built server. But I moved it when we started growing after a few weeks. So now that I think of it .. this will be a move to server number 5! haha

Technically, they do give you "unlimited" bandwidth and some even give you unlimited space too, but you are not allowed to use more than (for example) 10 - 25% of their system resources at one time. If you do, they shut you down and make you pay more. It's in their fine print.

not all hacks harm your computers. bot nets are run on multipul computers. and harm someone else site/system. you prob wouldnt no till you got a letter from you ISP saying your computer is part of a botnet. trust me it does happen

actually bot nets take your system resources and i would probably notice it since ive had a huge interest in computer and network security since 2000 and completed all requirements for degree dealing with it :P also i was just trying to lighten the load with the irc suggestion. if you are afraid of people coming in you can always put a password on it or make it invite only

Actually guys, PCServe has his own chat that some of us have been on. Very good and I'm sure he won't mind us using it while we wait for this one to come back.
