Help FMVperformance.com to buy a new server
As FMVperformance.com grows - especially Mazda3Forums.com, it has quickly outgrown every server appropriated for its use. Currently, FMVperformance sites reside on a Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz HyperThreaded system with 1 Gigabyte of RAM. While this may seem to be a relatively powerful system, it is quickly starting to become overpowered. With nearly 30 new user registrations a day on Mazda3Forums.com alone every day, the server is quickly becoming overpowered.
Unfortunately, new servers do not come cheap. A server strong enough to be worth the upgrade can cost upwards of $4,000. To help pay for a new server, FMVperformance.com has set a goal of collecting $2,000 in donations.
These donations do not have to be collected quickly - as of yet the server is not critically stressed. But we do see slow downs during busier times, and memory and CPU usage have reached an average of nearly 50% each - far more than a server should be running reguarly.
We thank you for any donation you may be able to provide. Your username will be permanently placed on a page on FMVperformance.com to show our gratitude for your donation.
Mazda3Forums.com alone has had more than 7,100 unique visitors and 1.4 million hits in a single day, not counting our other sites.
As our thanks to those that donate, every $25 you donate will earn you $5 off any item at the FMVstore, whenever you choose to get an item - it need not be now. In addition, those who donate ANYTHING will get first dibs at a limited edition sticker run to take place this summer.
Even if we don't make the goal, anything you can donate will help. Thank you very much for anything you can give, even if it's just $1.
The staff of FMVperformance.com
