I've been messing with the servers trying to get them more optimized. But that's kinda hard without any documentation in existance. I've actually disabled the servers quite a few times by accident. Hopefully I'll have everything ironed out in the next 2 days.

If anyone is having problems with images not showing, I need to know. I've yet again changed some things and need to know if something stopped working.

I'm having some problems with the picture and video servers just deciding to stop working. I'm working on the problem.

I just thought it was me. The videos were having a heck of a time loading for me yesterday and today...I guess they finally went bye bye

I need to make some time to research a way to resize the videos. I know it can be done, but I need to find a way to do it in a batch format so I can just tell 10 computers, "here go re-size these" and then eat something and come back and they're done. Resizing the videos is also part of my next phase for the site which will bring much more speed to all the images and video as well as slideshow capabilities and much more.

Oh, I know. According to the poll, people wanted larger videos, even if they took longer to download, so I changed to the higher res format. But the tradeoff is the file size. It's 600k for one second of video. So a 2 minute clip is 2*60*600=72000k or 72mb for a 2 minute video. And that's not even the highest the camera can go. I need someone to play with some of the software mentioned in this thread:

I just completely reconfigured one of the servers. Hopefully this will attack the root cause of picture and video downtime. Thank you for your patience.

Now once this problem is solved, I can move onto the next one--batch resizing videos!

Well, found out I had a bad router. Replaced it. So that should help some. Now, if I can nail the server issues as a temporary band-aid and then get the videos resized so I can proceed with the grand plan.

I'm running some tests on the servers. They'll be up and down for the next few hours. Hopefully this testing will help with a permanent solution I'm working on.

Well, looks like this attempt at a permanent solution failed. The next solution is much tougher to implement. This sucks.
