    Well, in a post by spinner down in off-topic, the Christmas rush gest mentioned quite a few times. While im sure those of that are on here quite often can handle all the little newbies questions there are some other concerns that come to my mind. There are bound to be thousands of new members that show up once they get a touch or even iphone for Christmas. Will the forums be able to handle it. Yea we have over 40,000 members with and average of about 400, on at any given time. And thats now, even pre-jailbreak there were upwards of 200 people on at any given time. Ive seen many a forum exceed its bandwith. My question is, are the forums subjected to a monthly bandwith allotment. And what are the chances that this rush will force them to be run dry.

    Other than that, to all those out there like myself who lend a helping hand in the tech support forum, lets try and fix all our current problems before we see a rush of people asking about the old ones.

    He's saying the bandwidth may be exceeded and the forums might crash. I actually never thought of that. That's something to think about.

    On Dec. 23rd there will be a mandatory meeting teaching all members how to use their riot gear and tasers.

    Seriously though, I trust that bigizzle will be able to keep this forum up.

    Although anybody interested in the meeting should send me a check for $1000 for room and board...

    (Yes it is a joke if anybody missed that).

    Everyone's post count will be raised about 1000. And I think jmiz will be the first non mod to reach 1000 posts. Sorry for the off topic.
