    tweaked forum settings to better utilise the additional memory :D

    so the new Linode plans - anyone need a 120GB VPS ? with 20 core threads + 1920GB SSD disk space + 10Gbps network out connectivity !

    This is great news.
    Linode is and was the best VPS provider in my opinion.
    On the basis of, stability, price, ((non overselling as most do) (You can view your host's load)) response time, setup features etc.

    Hopefully it goes well with Linode.
    Since the introduction of Digitalocean et al, it seems as though it does not quite go well with the Linode company.

    Superb. That's just saved me having to rebuild an old ubuntu box... can add the load to the other boxes now.

    Result!

    Now I need todo something with all that extra ram on the web-nodes for Spacebattles Forums

    I think a 3 node redis cluster with hot post caching would do it :p (when will I find the time!)
