If that goes to me: Wasn't it that you had to pay for the server? Isn't that the reason why people here can help with paypal donations?

Randir - The -hosting- for MTS2 isn't free and a site this big and complex, it never will be. That's why we have ads and donations, but the site itself is still completely free for the members to use - always has been, always will be. Donators can get some special perks, but you still have full access to all the site's major features, downloads, etc., no matter whether you donate or not. So your statement "a little step closer to a free server time," doesn't make any sense.

If there's no way that Delphy can run this site without any costs for him my statement makes really no sense. I hope no one had received this as a complaint. It was never thought as a complaint.

Just wanted to thank you "DELPHY" and the staff for all the work you all do to make the MTS2 the BEST. Thanks also for the purple creator icon I think it is so nice.

Dang...Right as I reinstalled my Sims 2 Game. Oh well, I'll download what I need when I can, and try not to disturb the workers.

I'm just another one of those simulated Sims.

Hi Delphy
Thi s has nothing to do with the message and everything to do with you (sorry long time comming ;-)

I just want to say thank you for this site and everything that you have done.
Without this site and the staff and everybody else I would still be screaming :-).

With all the problems that I was having with my sims. You and this site and all your staff have given me my sims back, and I know that if I have a problem u are just a click away. And for this I am truly greatful.


Thank you for not staying away and comming back. You are our savoir for the Sims. And I truly appreciate all that you have done and will do in the future.

You are the greatest

AND TO ALL OF THE CREATORS ON THIS SITE
I LOVE YOU ALL

I've optimised the code, and added memcached - and I've only just begun to implement that, so those combined with the new server mean that it's running very very. Now we can have one single quad core box running www instead of 2 dual opteron machines.

I am getting a '1' at the top left of my screen. Is that expected, or something I should be reporting?

Quoted by Delphy:I've optimised the code, and added memcached - and I've only just begun to implement that, so those combined with the new server mean that it's running very very.

XTS: "very very"? lol well? fast? slow? special? high? low? frantic?
Or is "very very" a new term I've not learned of? Trying to figure out if this is one of those circumstances I should have an open mind or not. lol

BTW. McAfee SiteAdvisor is alerting me (repeatedly) that they tested this site and found what some people consider to be adware, spyware or ?? (I forgot the other one). It popped up like 10 alerts but has since stopped. It only did that when I first arrived today. I've never seen it here before. I added the site to my safe list. It is safe, right? lol

Xts

PPSS. Smilies missing. all I see is the exclaimation triangle in the post icons and a llama in the smilies. Some of editting options above are missing. the first 5 on left are there (bold, italics, etc) Maybe to do with transition? Or my java? Or do you use java here? This is Monday so I expected things to be strange. lol

I had that happen a few days ago, XTS. I disabled it. I've been surfing like made here, as usual, and have done a full spybot and adaware scan with no problems surfacing. I think McAfee is being a bit ambitious.

I'm worried that my latest Salvation Army donation will result in homeless people looking like sluts from the 90s.
