I believe that if they indicate that, then Google will pwn them for it.

Great news!

I block your ads (as well as those on other sites) because it's highly annoying when you're trying to read text on a web page to have something flashing away and drawing your attention to it. Google ads are ok though; they're the only decent ones, the rest are just ****.

I haven't seen a flashing add in a LONG time on neowin. The admins are very good about watching and getting rid of "problem ads".

Why don't you just block the ones that annoy you?

We ordered a 3rd server and Marcel (Redmak) has it setup in the following order

1x P4 2.8GHz (Dual) Xeon with 4GB Memory <- MySQL Server

2x P4 2.8GHz (Dual) Xeon with 2GB Memory <- Apache (HTML) Server with load-balancing

This means we have 2 servers doing the work for apache requests.

Our Ad software and all images will also be moved from the MySQL server to the  load balanced HTML servers (server2 and 3) in the morning.

The load balancing solution is hardware (not software) and we also purchased a spam filter that checks mail before it reaches our mail server, dropping spam before it can create load on the mail server. Mail will also be left on the MySQL server.

the Planet (our host) has been great throughout with advice, assistance and timdorr assisted with the configuration of our load-balancer.

So fear not! We are working on the problem by chucking money at it, paid for by our generous members who do not block our ads. Thanks to you guys.

ps: The 3rd server was enabled a half hour ago, so it will take a while before it becomes effective, and we still need to move the rest of the data from the MySQL, performance should however increase in the coming hours.

If you guys need help optimizing, let me know, that's what I do for a living.

You should turn on mysql caching and have at least most select queries that don't change much run off of ram.

MySQL's not so much the issue as the PHP processing is. That's why we have multiple webservers and haven't split off into a clustered MySQL setup.

We're still getting a LOT of traffic from the Bill Gates thread the other day. It should die down over the course of the week.
