    Did a few server tweaks last night and this morning, seems to have speeded things up nicely and of course increased stability (was getting fed up of having to reboot the server daily at around 7PM GMT :s)

    Will be doing some work on the site scripts themselves so I thought I would jot it down here, in case anyone has any suggestions, comments etc.

    - Will be creating a new RSS feed, will be modifying the current one and making it advanced and keeping the other one fairly simple and once that is working and tested, creating the relevent GFX for them.
    - Forum backend optimsations. Always fun.
    - Look for code for ALT tags on OSNN news icons etc.

    Stuff to consider:
    - Smilies. Need smilies that will work on both Orbitz and Ekko, still looking into it but have not had alot of time.
    - Continued WC3. A good method of making sure pages are as efficient as possible (not only the text, but it means I look over every line of code) - a few sections are done and I occasionally have bursts where I do it. Only doing Orbitz atm, but will move on to Ekko once Orbitz is 100% complete.

    I am also in charge of the Virtuanews forums for a while as Tingle is away trying to break a world record, so that is keeping me busy but helps to make sure I am 100% up-to-date with Virtuanews.

    Could make that assumption :eek:

    PK: Maybe :)
    Might need a layout for the Klipfolio image / Mobile Image / Backend Image

    Backend and Klip are kinda the same, but I was thinking of splitting em down the middle, like a split with a different colour, in the osnn style of course (orbitz, tho one for ekko could still be done of course)

    Still undecided :)

    well I told freebsd to recompile apache, everything apache depends on, adn all the dependences that they depend on, etc, etc, so if a comlpete recompile of the whole shebang dont fix it I dunno what will.

    Well that could be a problem.
    I asked if I could pay to add some ram, they told me I could swap servers.
    :p

    well if you swap servers you'll have to wait till I get some free time to do all this again. I've been at it for 10 hours so far :D
