    Here is the current plan:

    I doubt anyone can beat that offer and it would infact mean leaving "Server Matrix" and going to their parent company "The Planet" which is good news as it will mean better support (and network backup!) - we were never happy that our current server was 100% operational. It will be called "Trasponder" hopefully :p

    I will hopefully be ordering it today so when X-istence returns he can have it sorted before the end of the month. Hopefully the transition, like last time, will be rediculously smooth to the point of not noticing any transition other than a nice little speed increase etc.

    yeah I remember you saying. I saw you had replied regarding my "anyone can beat this offer" but for free install and $199 looks like an amazing offer?

    yup, as well as covering licence costs for vbulletin.
    I have always wanted the site to pay for itself, now it does, which is why I am not so bothered about people blocking ads if they really feel that they have to.

    Any chance that you'd be able to run a CS:S on the same server? hehe

    oh, better get clicking on those ads.... :)

    Use multiple proxies to click ads... quicker to get EP some $$££ to keep the server up and running.. ;)

    Wouldn't mind having a small CS:S server running for our osnn community. Password protect it so to reduce bandwidth consumption from outsiders. :p
