So it looks like Comcast has finally started actually enforcing their bandwidth caps, which are presently 250GB per month; I've used 450-475GB for the last three, and it looks like at least 300+ of that has been from the site. While I'd normally be kinda proud about that, they've threatened to terminate my service if I don't cut it out...
Over the next couple days, I'm going to be transferring sup/tg/ to the Xen server. This does have a couple benefits, such as being able to throttle bandwidth limits (to prevent scraping) and provide a faster site experience in general. The downside, of course, is that this is going to take me a lot of time and effort to move everything and get it running the way it was before.
To help make this easier on myself, I'm also going to be doing a vicious purge of the archives, since there's just a lot of shit I've left there and figured "eh, why not?" Now I need to transfer 40GB of excrement flecked with nuggets of gold over to the new location, so it's time I started mucking out the stables a bit.
It's going to be pretty bumpy, but I don't foresee any major issues, other than the usual weird complaints about culling and a few things that ran in a Windows environment that I'll need to reconfigure under Debian (like the PDF creator for the Dark Heresy chargen). Who knows, maybe all this newness will help kick me into actually completing any of those projects I've been putting off, like updating the DH chargen or creating an EP chargen.
The current list of graveyarded threads is here, though you won't be able to view them yet. As I said, this is a very strict culling, so I may kill an item that deserves saving (particularly pieces of quest threads that may or may not need to be kept for completion purposes). Point out anything I miss in the comments here or in the IRC.
As noted, many parts of the site won't function until this is done, and a few pieces are going away entirely (the art archives for example). Don't bother reporting things unless they're still screwed up a week from now.
Addendum: I've put people to work slaving in the horrormines to start culling shit. Be prepared for lengthy lists. I've also moved Maid Quest and Frost Giantess Quest under the Collections section (which may not show up until I'm done moving shit around).
