    The HTF seems to get quoted alot in the press, and I was wondering how popular the site is.

    Does anyone know how many hits the HTF gets per day?

    Might ask the Mods in the Forum feedback section they probably have the best info on this.

    Good point.
    Maybe a moderator can move this post over to the proper forum? Or just answer the question, and then kill the thread. [​IMG]
    Thanks.

    Well, Marc, the late Dr. Carl Sagan answered your question already: billions and billions and billions.

    It really isn't a matter of hits to the site, those are in the millions a week, rather the actual number of unique visitors (registered and quest) that read the site. We average around 150,000 that read us daily with over 8 million page views (that is pages actually read) a month.

    We have been published in Audio Video Interiors magazine twice. The last time in July. We have been talked about in the Wall Street Journal. We were the first online community in the new DVD ETC magazine. We have been talked about in Widescreen Review. So we have been in print a few times.

    On second thought...........I like Jack's quote better! "Billions and Billions.....".

    Other than a modified version of the vBulletin software we also run a Linux OS with Apache and MySQL as the database. We have a dedicated Dell dual Pentium III with 512 cache on each CPU, 2G of ECC RAM, dual channel RAID with 128M of RAM on each channel, 4 Hotswap 18.1G SCSI hard drives and dual Hotswap power supplies. The size of the total forum is about 600M so we could run the whole thing out of RAM but use the RAID/SCSI instead. This is all in a 2u rack that is hosted by QWK.net that is piped into the internet using a rack with a local phone company that has plenty of power back up. Our server has had an uptime now of over 119 days without any hitches.

    Thanks for the info Vince and Parker.
    I visit the HTF every day, and being in the IT field - I got curious about the amount of traffic this site has when I realized how popular it actually was.
    Nontheless, maintaining the site seems like a pretty big undertaking.
    It really is incredible how far the HTF has come since it's inception, and no doubt - it's a tribute to the efforts of all those behind the scenes, and the friendly, knowledgable members of the forum. [​IMG]
    Anyone else have the HTF as the browsers Homepage? [​IMG]
