BOF is hosted on?

Postby jani » 25 Oct 09, 8:17 am

May I know where this BOF is hosted?

I am very impressed with the site loading speed :)

Is it on a dedicated server?

I see. Thanks for the confirmation :)

The resources you mentioned are for php related things. Do you have any idea about the resources to speed up the "Vbulletin" related things?

Not really :?

Phpbb is open source and can be modified, while Vbulletin is closed source. Users are pretty much limited to plug-ins and skins. Having said that, Vbulletin is not a bad system and would be my second choice after phpbb.

Yes but it is custom written, and not as extensive as the two you mentioned.

yes and no

Most advertisers have algorithms that detect false clicks, and so repeatedly clicking an advertisement without any interest in the product does not help anyone.

However, we do try to find advertisers that offer products in which our visitors would be interested. Clicking on ads in which there is an interest does help generate some income to cover bandwidth costs. Fortunately or unfortunately depending on how you look at it, Bit of Fun, does not have any salaries to pay and so does not require that many advertisements to cover costs. You may have noticed that there are no advertisements in the form for members and nonmembers alike.
