as you have all noticed, modDB has just reached 20,000 members!
Over the past 17 months, moddb has established itself as one of the leading mod-news websites on the internet, serving up over 1 million hits per day.
modDB has been coded up to be very bandwidth friendly, and only serves around 120GB of data per month, however, it requires two Dual Xeon machines to cope with the number of MySQL and PHP queries.
Tonight, modDB will go down for approximatelly 2 hours (estimated maximum) while we carry out upgrades on (mainly) the backend of our servers, including a new Dual Xeon MySQL database server.
Also, modDB 2.0 is in the works, and not a great while off!
