Yeah---its one of the few unpolluted places on the web.
I sometimes have enought money to send a donation...and I figure everytime the forum saves me 100$ on mechanic fees, I can swing a few bucks too--heck even 5 bucks is nothing comapred to bringing the moped to your local bike shop.
Simon (webmaster) appreciates the feedback, I'm sure. He's worked hard on this site.
The more money that comes in, the more bandwidth the site can afford. Sometimes during peak hours you'll see a "too many users @phreakco" that's because sp many people value the content and the current server/bandwidth is (sometimes) overloaded.
We were talking about a dedicated server, but it's way too much money--but with the way the site is growing.... who knows what the future will bring.
Every few months, I suggest Simon should put a link to "server activity" (maybe under the pay-pal link??!) amount of hits, amount of unique hits...you know, the general web traffic info....
When you see the actual numbers, it's amazing. The actual posters in the forum are like .3 percent of the traffic!!
Between the people and the information and the mopeds, this is surely my favorite site. A couple of my machines at home run IE with MopedArmy as the auto-home page.
