Boot Land Newsletter

September 7, 2008Weekly news from the land of Boot disks.

Introduction

Boot Land is growing and becoming a popular place for people to talk and place their questions and challenges about boot disks which is a wonderful thing but a rise in popularity also meant a significant rise of required server resources and at the moment we are just about reaching a point where better conditions need to be found.

As such, we are looking for people or companies interested in providing external hosting for our MySQL database. Please be ware that we require a mySQL DB running on a dedicated server with at least 1Gb of RAM to support our current daily load.

In return for this hosting we offer the chance of placing a logo image inside our "Recommended" box and our grattitude for this kind help.

To get in contact please send an email to nuno or post a new topic on the forums.

Thank you.

Conclusion


As you may have read on the introduction, we've been passing some difficult time lately because the DB gets overwhelmed by visitors. Let's hope a solution can soon be found for this matter.

In the meanwhile, hope you enjoy all the Acronis scripts that have been made available by Max Real Qnx and Thuun. I also recommend taking a look on the other topics that were mentioned on this newsletter with particular fun remark to the "Create Universal PE" project mentioned by MedEvil which seems a very cool way to boot up any computer flawlessly.


These are the news for the moment, be well and have a nice week!
