hahaha! I think a lot of people feel this way! I have to admit it makes me smile to see how much everybody loves the community here! And all the positive comments in this thread.

I remember when I did an update one time, and people were trying to get back online! The site was in maintenance mode so nobody could log in, but I had to open it up for a minute and like 10 people snuck in and got a preview of the new additions I was making lol! They were literally beating down the login page to get into the new layout I was adding.

People were e-mailing me about this outage, telling me that the site was down, and I got some phone calls too! Much appreciated by they way!

This gives me a great chuckle, some people "FELT" like the site was down for days! They really felt like that, even told me that in e-mails. But the funny thing was that it was only really down for 15 hours lol! I guess when you miss something that much, it feels like an eternity!

I missed this place too! I am glad it is back up. I enjoy being a part of this community!

There's always over 9000 users connected at all times, so it's not at all surprising. Good job people, now let's do it again!

I typed Hookahpro.com into google to see if a link to a section of the forum would work when the server was down, and I came across this website that estimated Hookahpro.com to have a net worth of almost $15,000 and that ad space was at an estimated amount of $20 a day.
So, nice work, Sambooka! Working on building a million dollar empire here!

There was a short downtime this morning too (hungarian time). I was also thinking at the time about calling you, but I found out the domain record doesn't have your phone nr. (and probaby everybody in the US was sleeping anyway) With the load growing at that rate you'll have to move to an elastic cloud like EC2 in the end

Well it's a good fall back to say the least. If you're ever short on cash or need cash faster than the donations are coming in.

All donations go into the upkeep, maintenance, software, unforeseeable costs, etc. for the Hookah Pro Community. I couldn't fund it without you all! Cheers!

I need to donate. I've been a frequent visitor on this site for years now I need to give something back for how amazing this sites been to me. I think I'll do that, once I check my bank account hope that the two orders I made earlier this week haven't killed it lol

EDIT: Finally after 2 years I donated. Enjoy Sam, make good use with the money!

sambooka have you considered enableing fastcgi if you havent already or lowering the tcp timeout, or mysql keepalive number down. id assume that the database is getting hit the hardest so you might want to check out something like changeing the io scheduler to something like deadline assuming its a linux server. either way you should really look into these things especially fastcgi if you arent already doing them

Ah... that's what happened. I had to go to work without my hookah fix. Ended up surfing ebay for half an hour instead of reading the awesomeness. It was almost like getting banned again. The horrors!!!

I promise I will donate once I get my check in.

Hookah + money on the fly comes in 1/5 from my paycheck the rest goes into 401k+savings+benefits. Point is I am lacking some money now because I just dropped like over a g from my debit to take A+, N+, S+ MCP, MCDST & CCNA tests
