just noted some figures showing a doubling of bandwidth in the last year.

there may be some very notable announcements happening in the next 6 months, all rather ironic in a way as whilst the announcements will be phenomenal they also will correspond with us struggling to keep to the customer service standards that I would like to define us.

We have now for the first time exceeded a full rack of servers  

Another 6 have been going online this week and the next order is under discussion.

The last two orders we have simply ordered 6 at a time, and even then it is not getting us very far ahead of the curve.

Staff are harder to get hold of, especially as our new offices are still a few weeks away from being ready to occupy. But rather like the servers it is getting to the point of asking for 6 at a time

Another seven servers went on order this week.

But there are concerns that this is not enough

Wow!

You are blessed to have these sort of high-class worries. Glad to see your business is expanding...and creating jobs.

And looks like another 6 will go on order this week which will bring us up to 53, which is 50 more than 3 years ago!
Well thereabouts anyway as we had 3 in the US and it was just about 3 years ago we broke ground in the UK with the first UK based server.

It's almost getting silly now posting server orders, I'm not sure the final paperwork has gone through but today in theory we have ordered another 17   so that will have been 25 delivered in Dec/Jan or about 3 a week.

looks like another week for this next load to be delivered, but it is kind of notable going through the current servers, a lot of them are ceasing to have identities, a few of us can talk about the "nostromo effect" to identify a pattern seen on a server, but these days that "desk" is occupied by four system admins who were not even in the company when that server was bought.
Today had 6+ people chasing a weird bug, and I had to defend the fact that some people had other priority’s   it's a far cry from the old myff days with 3 servers and less employees.

hmm paperwork going a little slow on this new lot, but we seem to be upping the order to 28 servers  
That's even more hair-raising than 17. It will take us to 83 servers in total. e.g. rather more than 2 full racks when you add in the assorted bits and bobs.

Still a little ways from that but we are at least at the stage where their coming to see us next week to discuss future business.
Plus of course direct USA capacity is getting more on the agenda, and we now actually have US servers (to be accurate live US servers doing work, we have always had "utility" servers state side), though I'm not counting them in the total as they are hired.

The next server order was placed last week.

This was for 30 more servers. I was looking at the dates and thinking its been a relative while.
But then again that is in effect about 10 weeks, so I suppose 3 a week
Not quite sure where these will be going, the forums have got off fairly unscathed but the truth is we have been having insane fun and games with our core datacenter in the last month   To be honest I think if if had effected the forums and I had posted the truth of what's gone on I would not expect the more tech aware of our customers to believe me, I think they would strongly suspect I was lying to defect blame from some of our own chronic incompetence

Just occurred to me that so far this year we have been spending something like £2000 a day on new servers.e.g. if this was to increase just a little more we would be at the million quid a year on new servers mark, it's not surprising the staff numbers are getting to 50+ and after 6 months in new offices we are again looking for a much bigger place.

Another 46 servers due to arrive next Friday, which will be a big relief.

Seems about 100kgbp more servers than I thought are on order   it's getting hard to keep track of, I guess bandwidth is fast approaching 1TB an hour...
It's quite funny looking at the "Server Appeal" which I leave up because it shows what you can do on a myff forum and because it lets people show appreciation and of course myff is still a seperate business to the mayhem of what is having to be the major focus.
