After _many_ late nights of coding, our site is finally online and serving thousands of hits a day. A couple of the customizations include targeted advertising based on date/time, age and sex of vistor (collected when account is created), classifieds, current weather and movie listings... Check it out, and let me know what you think.

  • Really nice! I love the layout! Great job!
  • I like the colorscheme. What hardware setup are you running on?

  • Thanks. My experience is that the memory consumption is acutally better when there is heavy traffic (the stale MySQL processes die off quicker) When in development, Linux was using roughly 96%, today we are serving over 12k/hits a day, and memory usage is down to 60% (with a .09 average load) Hardware as follows:

    Redhat Linux, Dual PII-450, 512MB RAM, RAID-5, 45GB Ultra2 (IBM Ultrastar Drives) using the DPT SmartRAID V series controller, Intel Ethernet Express PRO.

    Godo job!

      1. Integration of a mail tool to slash: Given the proportion of hacks that relate to posting by mail or administrating by mail, I believe this is a hot topic. Wouldn't it be a good idea to bundle / with a mailer and/or maillist manager ? Users, authors would have an address nick@slashsite.domain.org, redirected to their main address.
