    Exclamation Another year another fund raising drive

    Well it hardly seems a year since we started the keep MURC alive drive! Our yearly contract with Burst is just about up so we are once again in the situation of needing a fund raising drive.

    This time as far as the MURC goes we intend to make a major change, our patience has finally run out with Burst after the last round of problems and their appalling level of support. So the idea is to relocate the site to a new, dedicated server, this will give us a better platform and much more control over site maintenance.

    The network we intend to move onto is based in Japan, you can check out your connection to this network by looking at this site...

    http://210.224.181.143/

    If anyone finds it painfully slow to connect to please let us know, obviously if there are any major issues we need to find out before we make the final decision to go.

    If any of you could chip in to the fund it would be once again greatly appreciated. We still have the Paypal account active or if anyone is uneasy with that method maybe some of the local fundraisers could step in again to collect funds?

    I just want to say thanks to all of you that have lent your support to the site over the last year. Special thanks must go out to Dan for coming in and fixing all the crap that goes on behind the scenes

    Thanks
    BTW sorry guys but I couldn't find a suitable english site on the same subnet that we're looking at. So you all got to read Japanese

    Fast enough here, save for the annoying language pack prompts :-P

    I'll restrict the language pack prompts to only Klingon if we get a server there

    Not painfully slow, but considerably slower than the current server.

    Clicking the link takes 30-40 seconds before page is complete. Do-able but not entirely comfortable.

    The Japan server seemed about the same from home too, ~5PM near prime-time for roadrunner.

    Not sure if this wil help.. but,
    With this software for the bulletin board, VBulletin, they probably charge you quite a bit, commercially, why not use PNphpBB2, and probably save lots of money? only probelm I can see is that maybe this really great data base not be able to transfer over... that would suck if it cannot...

    Just a thought...
