For your information and marvel, since moving onto our new dedicated uncapped Cobalt RAQ, traffic is up one third!!!! (on the main TRC site)

To be honest tlr, this site is so good now with the extra speed, I think this thing is going to skyrocket. Hopefully that benefits you for all your hard work.

I hope so too. We're about to negotiate a new contract with our advertising providers, which means revenue to invest back into the network.

So that's how you make all your money! off of the site. :D

LOL! I wish. We've consistently lost money over the past two years to the tune of approx. 20,000 UK pounds! THAT is a LOT of money. :(

I believe our tlr online is holding back on what scale of operation he is running... ;)

Hi Draco. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I don't think people realize how many hits this site gets and how much bandwidth it uses.

34,000 gamers hit the main site (http://www.tombraiderchronicles.com) and forum yesterday (Fri (one day record for TRC)). Bandwidth consumption for the month of April was almost 500GB. Advertising revenue for the month of April didn't cover a tenth of operational cost. :(

500 Gb?? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/bash.gif Yeah, you are crazy.

Indeed. And that's restricting the available download queues. Imagine what the consumption would be like if there were unlimited download queues! Perhaps now people will realise why I got so ****ed off when answering posts complaining about speed and queues.
