Since I had troubles a few months ago and my server went down for a whole weekend, I upgraded my dedicated server’s ram. This really sped things up and helped big time with the performance. HOG has now been up and running for 82 days and 58 minutes with no problems (knocking on wood).
I just spent a few minutes deleting spam and blocking spammers’ IP addresses.
Note to spammers:
If you post spam here I’ll block your ass and you’ll never see this site, or any other of the dozens of web sites on my server again.
