    How does Techzonez keep records?

    Specifically, does it use piles and piles of RAM like Google and no hard drives?

    And how long are posts kept?
    I've created my own website...a collection of moving, sad and happy and humorous poems which I would like to share with others. They come from stories my dad used to tell me when I was a kid. If you could glance at my site and if you know of others who might enjoy it and perhaps tell them of it, I would be most appreciative. Thank you. The address is www.metrocast.net/~wumply/exper-1.html

    everything is on a database server and the forum you see is just basically a GUI pointing and making calls to the database. this is in lamen terms though you would have to wait for richard or rev to get technical.

    As phish said all the data is written to and stored in a database. The database is kept on a hard drive within our server.

    There is no fixed timeline for posts.

    Yup, when it gets full, I'll start having to write the posts down on paper and filing them away

    Richard: Seriously, this time...I don't know how long Techzonez has been around, but my curiosity is bugging me. How does it work? Do you just have 1 humungous HD or have you somewhere along the line had to erase or just substitute a brand new drive. I mean how long does it take to fill up a HD.

    A hard drive isn't going to get filled up by just a Forum Database.

    Because no one, and I mean absolutely no one here told the truth, I feel compelled:


    We have a scribe at TZ who puts it all in manually.

    Well, Conan, maybe so...but if one keeps adding stuff and never removing it, any container fills up...now, you'd not be pulling my leg, would you? Or would you?

    Yes, but if the container is large enough it will take years to fill it up.

    Point taken. So how big is your HD and do you have an idea as to the size of most posts? And how much of it is currently filled?
